NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
342 PM EDT Monday Apr 27 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will build into the area through Tuesday. Low 
pressure will affect the area Wednesday into Thursday. High 
pressure will build in over the weekend and remain into the 
beginning of the week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 330 PM Monday...weak high pressure will continue to build 
east into the area tonight. A quasi-stationary vertically stacked 
low pressure system will remain over the northeastern states while 
a strong vortmax rotates around the western periphery of the upper 
low. WV imagery shows the vortmax/shortwave is currently located 
across western PA/northern WV moving south-southeast towards the region. The 
present scattered diurnal cumulus field will diminish with loss of 
heating early this evening, then the vortmax will move into 
northern sections of the County Warning Area after midnight and become sheared 
west-to- east. Moisture remains limited with forecast soundings 
indicating precipitable waters  falling to less than 0.50 inches. The weak 
shortwave moving through the area should result in increased 
clouds for the northern half of the County Warning Area overnight. Northwest winds will 
persist overnight with a slight surge in speeds after midnight, 
mainly becoming gusty over the coastal waters and obx late. Lows 
tonight will fall into the middle 40s inland to upper 40s/low 50s 
along the coast/obx. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday/... 
as of 330 PM Monday...no major changes to the synoptic players on 
Tuesday with the nearly stationary vertically stacked low over the 
northeastern states/Canadian Maritimes with high pressure moving 
in from the west. Another upper low will move through the southern 
Great Plains into the Arkansas/la/MS moving towards the region. Northerly 
flow continues Tuesday with speeds diminishing late afternoon. Dry 
conditions continue Tuesday under mostly sunny skies. Thicknesses 
fall slightly Tuesday, to 1340-1350 meters yielding highs in the 
upper 60s/near 70 across southwestern zones to low 60s across 
northeastern areas. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Monday/... 
as of 4 am Monday...coastal low to affect the area for the midweek. 


Tuesday/Tuesday night...with weak surface ridge of high pressure 
in place...expect dry weather with light north/NE winds with 
comfortable high temperatures around 70 with dewpoints down in the 
low/middle 40s during the afternoon. 


Wednesday/Wednesday night...as an upper low closes off over the 
Tennessee/Ohio Valley region...strengthening surface low pressure 
will move across Georgia and South Carolina during Wednesday and 
Wednesday night. Expect light precipitation to reach our far 
western counties during the morning hours on Wednesday and 
overspread the area Wednesday afternoon/night with probability of precipitation increasing 
to likely over much of the area. 


Thursday/Thursday night...the strengthening sub-1000 mb low will 
move along our coast Thursday morning then move slowly north of 
the area by Thursday night. Strong middle-level shortwave energy on 
the back side of the low will lead to continuing good chances of 
rain...especially over the northeastern half of the County Warning Area and Outer 
Banks into Thursday night. 


Friday/Friday night...as the surface and attendant upper low move 
slowly north up the middle-Atlantic coast on Friday...there will 
still be sufficient energy in the middle-levels to steepen lapse 
rates and lead to at least a small chance of light rain. 


Saturday through Sunday...as the strong surface low finally 
stubbornly moves away from the middle-Atlantic region...high pressure 
will build in over the region for the weekend with dry weather and 
temperatures slowly edging closer to normal with highs into the 
middle 70s and lows in the middle 50s. 


&& 


Aviation /20z Monday through Saturday/... 
short term /through 18z Tuesday/... 
as of 140 PM Monday...VFR conditions will prevail through the taf 
period. Scattered clouds have developed this afternoon with 
daytime heating. Expect clear skies...tonight through Tuesday as 
high pressure builds in from the northwest. Not expecting any fog 
development as there will be a light northwest wind flow. 


Long term /Tuesday through Friday/... 
as of 405 am Monday...VFR conditions are expected Tuesday as dry 
high pressure builds over the region. Conditions deteriorate by 
early Wednesday through Thursday as strengthening low pressure 
moves slowly along the coast. Widespread rain will likely lead to 
periods of sub-VFR ceilings and visibility. Conditions improve 
Friday...but there will still be sufficient upper energy for some 
widely scattered showers. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /tonight and Monday/... 
as of 340 PM Monday...latest surface and buoy observations 
indicate north/north-northwest winds 10-15 kts and seas 2-4 feet. A robust vorticity maximum 
associated with a vertically stacked low pressure across the 
Canadian Maritimes will move across the region tonight which will 
serve to tighten the pressure gradient, especially after midnight. 
Expect north/northwest winds to increase to 10-20 knots and possibly 
briefly around 25 knots across the central and northern waters late 
tonight. Seas build back to 4-6 feet north of Ocracoke Inlet but 
continue around 2-4 feet to the south. Maintained scas for the surge 
expected late tonight through Tuesday morning. Northerly winds 
diminish 5-15 knots Tuesday afternoon with seas 2-4 feet south to 4-6 
feet for the outer portions of the central and northern waters. 


Long term /Tuesday through Friday/... 
as of 410 am Monday...Small Craft Advisory conditions will be 
ongoing at the beginning of the period early Tuesday before ending 
around 18z Tuesday. Expect light north winds Wednesday and 
Wednesday night...becoming more easterly by late Wednesday night 
and increasing to at least 10 to 15 knots. Lots of uncertainty 
regarding the marine forecast for Thursday into Friday...all 
dependent on eventual track of surface low. Best consensus is 
bringing the low right along the coast and latest model wind 
fields would keep bulk of the stronger winds further offshore and 
currently have the strongest winds at 15 to 20 knots from the 
northwest Thursday night into Friday. Seas build to 4 to 6 feet 
during this period. Deviation in the track of the low could lead 
to much higher winds and will continue to monitor. 


&& 


Mhx watches/warnings/advisories... 
NC...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory from 4 am to 1 PM EDT Tuesday for amz150- 
152-154.
