NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
123 PM EST Monday Jan 26 2015 


Synopsis... 
low pressure inland will move north and weaken today while 
another area of low pressure develops off of the coast. The 
offshore low will deepen rapidly as it lifts northeast away 
from the area tonight and Tuesday. High pressure will build 
in from the west Wednesday...then pass offshore Thursday. 
A cold front will move through the area Thursday night into 
early Friday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
a few showers will develop over the area this afternoon as the 
deep upper trough digs into eastern NC. Not totally ruling out a 
few rumbles of thunder given the strength of the upper cooling and 
modest surface heating this afternoon but think chances are too low to add 
forecast mention at this time. High temperatures will be levelling off in the low 
to middle 50s for most locations by early to middle afternoon due to 
increasing clouds and low level cold air advection onset late. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through 6 am Tuesday/... 
as of 1 PM Monday...initial analysis of the 12z model confirms 
previous forecast thinking, so no changes to the basic short term 
forecast for now. 


Previous discussion: 
as of 345 am Monday...the upper trough will become 
negatively tilted as it crosses eastern NC overnight leading to 
rapid deepening of the coastal low as it move up the East Coast. 
These series of events will allow cold air to be circulated into 
eastern NC after midnight with freezing levels lowering to under 
1000 feet by 12z Tuesday. Thus any remaining precipitation would be 
able to mix with and eventually change to snow especially over the 
northern half of the area. Again the models are not in agreement 
with quantitative precipitation forecast placement with amounts less than 0.25" indicated. This in 
combination with surface temperatures expected to remain above 
freezing and relatively warm ground temperatures will preclude any 
significant accumulations and impacts. We could see a few tenths 
of an inch accumulation on grassy surfaces/elevated roadways. May 
need to raise probability of precipitation to likely after taking a closer look at 00z 
European model (ecmwf). 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday through Sunday/... 
as of 345 am Monday...strong vert stacked low will continue to deepen 
and move up the eastern Seaboard Tuesday...while deep upper trough 
continues across the East Coast. Moisture will continue to wrap 
around the system Tuesday...and while moisture continues to look 
limited there will be the potential for a brief period of winter 
weather. Thermal profiles and critical thickness values indicate the 
precipitation transitioning to primarily light snow/snow showers Tuesday 
morning across eastern NC. Temperatures will generally remain the 30s Tuesday 
morning and only warming to around 40-45 during the afternoon. 
With surface temperatures above freezing much or all of the period...still 
expect minimal impacts with little to no snow accumulation. The 
Albemarle Sound region and the northern obx will have the best chance 
to see some light accumulation as this area will be under the 
deeper wrap around moisture the longest...but with the relatively 
warmer antecedent conditions any accumulation expected to be 
confined primarily to grassy and elevated surfaces. With light quantitative precipitation forecast 
amounts...not expecting more than a dusting at any location. 
Precipitation will likely transition back to a rain/snow mix Tuesday 
afternoon as surface temperatures warm to around 40. 


Moisture moves offshore Tuesday night and Wednesday with dry conditions and 
mainly clear skies. High pressure builds into the region Wednesday and Wednesday 
night...then shifts offshore Thursday as the next clipper system 
approaches from the northwest. Lows Tuesday night and Wednesday night will 
be in the middle 20s inland to lower 30s along the coast. Highs Wednesday 
around 40-45 with about 5-7 degrees warming for Thursday. Confidence 
below average with a couple late period northern stream clipper systems 
as models not in best agreement with the strength and available 
moisture. The first system will move across the region Thursday night 
into Friday. The GFS is weaker and has limited moisture with this 
system while the European model (ecmwf) is deeper with the middle- level shortwave and 
taps more Gulf moisture and subsequently wetter across eastern NC. 
Increased probability of precipitation to low chance Thursday night. High pressure builds across 
the area late Friday through Sat. Below normal confidence continues 
late next weekend with the potential for another low to develop 
along the southeast coast. Model differences continue with the GFS about 
18-24 hours faster than European model (ecmwf) moving the low along the NC coast. 


Temperatures through the period expected to be below normal with mainly 
40s for high...except Friday when temperatures expected to climb to the 
lower 50s central and southern sections. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Monday through Saturday/... 
short term /through 18z Tuesday/... 
as of 18z Monday...high confidence of VFR conditions will dominate 
for the next 6 hours. Middle to high clouds will start to lower this 
afternoon as the low pressure develops off the coast today. Expect 
scattered light showers to start early evening with MVFR 
conditions to develop around 00z. As the coastal low deepens late 
tonight...the light showers...is expected to change over to light 
snow...around 9z... mainly for the northern taf sites. Northwest winds 
10-15 knots gusty up to 20 knots overnight. Conditions will 
improve slowly throughtout the tomorrow as the coastal low lifts 
farther NE. 


Long term /Tuesday through Thursday/... 
as of 345 am Monday...sub-VFR conditions to start out the period 
Tuesday...with MVFR ceilings likely. Light snow showers possible 
Tuesday morning...though little to no accumulation expected with 
best chances for light accumulation northeast of the terminals. 
Conditions will be gradually improving Tuesday afternoon...becoming 
pred VFR by late Tuesday afternoon and continuing into Friday. A cold 
front will move through the terminals late Thursday night into Friday 
with scattered showers possible. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through tonight/... 
as of 615 am Monday...small craft advisories have been issued for 
all of the near shore waters/the sounds/ and The Alligator river. A 
brief period marginal gales are possible over the central waters 
late tonight into early Tuesday. Miller type "b" cyclogenesis off 
of the NC coast during the next 24 hours will lead to hazardous 
winds and seas developing tonight. In the meantime light easterly 
flow north of Ocracoke will become southwest while south of there 
winds will continue west-southwest 10 to 15 knots. This evening the flow 
will become northwest and increase to 25 knots with higher gusts as 
rapidly developing low pressure moves up the East Coast leading to 
building seas of 6 to 8 feet by early Tuesday morning. 


Long term /Tuesday through Friday/... 
as of 345 am Monday...unsettled conditions expected on the waters 
through mid-week. Strong vertically stacked low pressure system 
will continue to move up the East Coast Tuesday. North-northwest winds will 
remain strong...15-25kt gusts 30-35kt...through midweek as low 
deepens to the northeast and reinforces the pressure gradient 
along the NC coast. Small Craft Advisory conditions expected to continue into 
Wednesday/Wednesday night. Winds will begin to diminish and back to the west/SW as 
surface high pressure shifts offshore late Wednesday night and Thursday. The 
potential for Small Craft Advisory conditions return late Thursday night and Friday as a 
cold front moves through the waters. Used a blend of wavewatch and 
local nwps as the nwps is usually overdone in northwest flow situations. 
Elevated seas of 6 to 9 feet expected Tuesday and Wednesday...highest central 
and northern waters before gradually subsiding through Thursday. 


Persistent gusty north-northwest flow...tonight through Wednesday...could 
result in minor water level rises for sound-side areas of the 
Outer Banks adjacent to the Pamlico Sound.
