NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
319 PM EST Monday Mar 2 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will pass by to the north tonight. A warm front 
will move through Tuesday night. A cold front will move through 
Thursday. High pressure will build in for the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Tuesday morning/... 
as of 315 PM Monday...high pressure in the Ohio Valley this evening 
will move east overnight reaching the middle Atlantic coast Tuesday 
morning. Mostly clear skies this evening. However as the high 
moves to the northeast after midnight high clouds will increase 
after midnight gradually lowering through early Tuesday morning as 
a warm front approaches from the southwest. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Tuesday morning through 6 PM Tuesday/... 
as of 315 PM Monday...warm front will approach from the southwest 
during the day. Flow will veer from northeast in the morning to 
southerly by late in the day. Increasing isentropic lift along 
with increasing moisture will bring probability of precipitation back in from the 
southwest during the day. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Monday/... 
as of 315 PM Monday...changeable weather conditions highlight the 
first part of the long term forecast period. Upper ridge over the 
area Tuesday night slides offshore on Wednesday. Warm sector 
becomes firmly entrenched over the area later Tuesday night and 
especially Wednesday in the developing deep layer SW flow. Temperatures 
may initially be steady or fall slightly Tuesday evening then rise 
after midnight as boundary layer SW flow strengthens late. Temperatures will 
warm well into the 70s Wednesday away from from any cooling 
onshore breeze and any sea fog/stratus along the south facing 
coastlines Wednesday. Triggers are lacking for organized precipitation but could 
be a few scattered showers just about anytime of day given any 
weak impulse in the moist SW flow. 


Most of the precipitation associated with the incoming strong cold front 
lines up along and behind the surface boundary. Models continue to trend 
later with precipitation arrival from north to south later Wednesday night 
into Thursday. Models also continue to trend a bit warmer as the 
precipitation begins to taper off during Thursday afternoon and expect most 
of it falls as just a cold rain through much of the afternoon. Still 
think that the chances for seeing a brief changeover from liquid 
to frozen are good so will leave a chance for sleet and snow in 
the forecast before ending by late Wednesday afternoon or evening. It 
appears as any accumulation would be minor given the short duration 
of any frozen precipitation but a quick burst of heavier snow or sleet could 
result in small amounts. Temperatures remain rather mild especially over 
southern areas Wednesday night. Highs on Thursday occur early then slowly 
falling with onset of low level cold air advection during the afternoon. 


A very cold airmass settles in the region Thursday night and Friday. Low 
temperatures drop well into the 20s Thursday and Friday nights with highs 
Friday struggling to break 40 degrees. A gradual moderation of 
temperatures is expected over the weekend and into early next week 
as the airmass modifies as broad eastern trough moves offshore. Will 
keep the forecast dry into early next week for now. Models have been 
flipfloppy with precipitation chances during this time frame, trying to bring 
southern stream moisture back up through the southeast states. Prefer to await 
better model consistency before introducing any precipitation into the longer 
range forecast. 


&& 


Aviation /20z Monday through Saturday/... 
as of 315 PM Monday...clear skies this evening with a light 
northeast wind. High clouds will increase after midnight ahead of 
a warm front to the southwest. Broken middle deck arrives predawn 
Tuesday ... to around 5 kft Tuesday morning. Winds will 
become southerly by late in the day Tuesday. A chance of light 
rain will overspread the area from the southwest during the day. 
Sub-VFR conditions possible after around 18-20z. 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
as of 315 PM Monday...low level moisture increases Tuesday night in 
developing S/SW surface flow and reduced flight categories to IFR/LIFR 
in low stratus/fog likely through early Wednesday. Low level moisture 
scours out after sunrise Wednesday and expect mainly VFR by middle to 
late morning. SW winds will become gusty Thursday. A strong cold front 
will cross the region from north to south late Wednesday night and Thursday. 
Good covering of rain along and behind the boundary with precipitation 
diminishing late Thursday...poss mixed with some snow or sleet inland. 
Sub VFR conditions are a good bet later again late Wednesday night and 
much of Thursday. Strong high pressure builds in for a return to 
predominant VFR conditions late in the week and into early next 
weekend. 


&& 


Marine... 
as of 315 PM Monday...short duration surge behind cold front 
expected through late tonight. Timing of current small craft 
headlines still looks good and do not plan any changes. Pressure 
gradient loosens quickly tonight as high pressure passes to the 
north then moves off the middle Atlantic coast Tuesday. Northeast 
flow will veer during the day becoming southerly by late Tuesday 
afternoon. 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
as of 315 PM Monday...strong winds and rough seas will prevail over 
the marine area during much of the forecast period as a strong 
cold front drops through the area. Gusty south-southwest winds will develop ahead 
of the front Tuesday night and continue Wednesday with seas building to 5 to 9 
feet outer waters Wednesday. The cold front will cross the waters late 
Wednesday night into Thursday with strong high pressure then building 
in from the west Thursday, leading to strong north winds into Friday. 
Winds/seas will slowly decrease as cold air advection wanes late 
Friday through Saturday. 


&&
