NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
1014 am EDT Monday Jul 28 2014 


Synopsis... 
a strong cold front will approach from the northwest today and 
will move through eastern North Carolina tonight. The front 
will become stationary over the offshore waters through the 
week...drifting back toward the coast next weekend. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
as of 10 am Monday...latest surface analysis shows 1000 mb low pressure 
centered over southern New York/northern PA...with attendant cold front 
extending from the middle-Atlantic through central NC into the Gulf 
states. Front will continue to move eastward today with enc in warm 
sector. Storm Prediction Center continues to outlook eastern NC in slight risk...with 
unstable airmass and favorable dynamics...as upper trough 
approaches accompanied by 70-80kt upper jet. Models continue to 
depict very unstable environment with strong shear and classic 
inverted v-type sounding. Cape values 3000-4000j/kg...Li values 
-8/-9c...and 0-6km shear 30-35kt. Best instability and moisture 
will be along and east of Highway 17 with deep westerly flow 
capping inland areas. Convective coverage still remains somewhat 
uncertain this afternoon and evening as models continue to trend 
drier...though still think best chances will be along the coastal 
areas mainly east of Highway 17...from about Oregon Inlet to New 
Bern/Richlands area and points east/southeast with enhanced convergence 
aided by seabreeze and diff heating boundaries. Middle/high cloud 
shield that continues to stream in from the west should continue 
to move east and off the coast in the next several hours as back edge 
currently extends from Nags Head to Greenville to Fayetteville. 
Main limiting factor today will be the deep westerly flow...with 
guidance showing dewpoints inland mixing down into the low/middle 
60s. However any thunderstorm that does develop has the potential to 
become strong to severe given the atmosphere...with damaging wind 
gusts...large hail...and frequent lightning. Isolated tornado 
threat as well given strong shear and boundary. 


Continue with highs in the upper 80s/middle 90s. Hot temperatures combined with 
dewpoints in the 70s...mainly east of Highway 17...will result in heat 
index values 100-104 degrees. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through 6 am Tuesday/... 
as of 7 am Monday...strong/severe storm threat could continue for 
the first part of the evening ahead of the front...though should 
wane towards sunset with loss of heating. Front will then move 
through eastern NC with cooler and drier airmass filtering in 
behind it with northerly flow. Overnight lows in the low/middle 70s. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday through Sunday/... 
as of 333 am Monday...little change in thought from previous forecast 
regarding the long term period...which will be dominated by 
anomalous long wave trough across the eastern Continental U.S. To start the 
period...then a return to a wetter pattern by late week into early 
next week. 


Tuesday should be mainly dry...as surface front will have shifted offshore. 
However...retained a slight chance thunder as 850 mb mb flow remains 
SW despite light north flow at the surface. Some elevated instability 
coupled with lingering low/middle level moisture could generate an 
isolated thundershower especially across the eastern 2/3 of the forecast area. Upper 
trough sinks further S Tuesday night allowing for clearing skies and 
further drying of the column as dew points drop into the low 60s. 
Overnight lows will be rather pleasant...low/mid 60s inland to 
near 70 obx. 


High pressure will be centered to the north of the area Wednesday and Thursday 
with light NE surface winds continuing to filter in dry air. Maximum temperatures 
expected in the middle 80s with overnight lows continuing in the 
low/middle 60s inland to near 70 coast. 


Longwave trough begins to Delaware-amplify by Friday...with middle Atlantic 
ridge beginning to build back into the western Atlantic Basin. At 
the surface...weak inverted trough will begin to establish itself along 
the coast as early as Thursday night. Moisture return will lead to 
increasing relative humidity vals and an increase in clouds. Have introduced small probability of precipitation 
to coastal areas for the possibility of showers working their way 
onshore late Thursday night. Some timing differences amongst 
deterministic 28/00z GFS/ecm with bringing in rain chances. European model (ecmwf) is 
wetter earlier...with layer mix ratios returning to at or above 14 g/kg as 
early as Friday morning. The consensus however is a return to above 
normal rain chances by the weekend into early next week as naefs ens 
probability of precipitation are quite high and southeast Seaboard is in favorable SW flow regime 
next weekend with good moisture convergence. 


&& 


Aviation /14z Monday through Friday/... 
short term /through tonight/... 
as of 7 am Monday...predominate VFR conditions expected through the 
taf period. Today will be mainly dry with westerly low level flow 
capping convection until later in the afternoon and may be mainly near 
coast. Will continue thunderstorms in the vicinity for ewn and oaj. What storms do develop 
could become severe given strong instability with large hail and 
strong winds possible. Cold front will move through the terminals 
this evening/tonight with veering winds and drier airmass behind 
it. 


Long term /Tuesday through Friday/... 
as of 333 am Monday...winds become north and northeast Tuesday through Friday 
as high pressure will settle in to the north of the region. Dewpoints 
will be fairly low at night so at this time not expecting widespread 
radiation fog each night...though could drop to MVFR at times as 
winds become calm and skies MO clear. A return to good rain chances 
Friday into the weekend as moisture returns to the area with weak low 
pressure riding northward along the coast. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through tonight/... 
as of 1015 am Monday...latest observation show SW winds 10-20kt and seas 2-5ft 
north of Hatteras and 4-7ft south. Will may need to extend the Small Craft Advisory 
for waters south of Hatteras through 16z with buoys still showing 
seas 6 feet on the outer waters. Cold front will continue to 
approach the waters today...moving through tonight. SW winds 
10-20kt will continue today with seas subsiding to 3-5ft south of 
Oregon Inlet and 2-4ft north. Winds become northerly 10-15kt 
behind the front. Scattered thunderstorms expected this afternoon and 
evening...especially across the southern waters with strong/severe storms 
possible. 


Long term /Tuesday through Friday/... 
as of 333 am Monday...winds turn north then northeast on Tuesday but should 
remain below Small Craft Advisory range. The NE winds will remain through much of 
next week as large high pressure remains centered to the north of 
the area...with winds generally in the 10-15 knots range with 2-4 feet 
seas expected. Timing of winds switching direction become tricky 
late in the week as a weak inverted trough sets up near the 
coast...with light southeast winds expected to develop as early as 
Friday...then becoming S to SW next weekend. 


&& 


Mhx watches/warnings/advisories... 
NC...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory until noon EDT today for amz154-156-158.
