NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
331 am EST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


Synopsis... 
low pressure will move along the North Carolina coast today. A 
weak front will move through the area on Thursday. High pressure 
will build into North Carolina by the end of the week and remain 
through the weekend. A cold front will move through the area 
Monday with high pressure building in Tuesday. 


&& 


Near term /today/... 
as of 315 am Wednesday...latest surface analysis shows 1007mb low off the 
SC coast this morning...which has developed along a stalled 
frontal boundary. The low will continue to lift north-northeast and across the 
NC coast this morning. Models continue to show a more inland 
progression of the warm front early this morning with strong southeasterly 
winds and warm air advection along the coast. Forecast sounding 
and Storm Prediction Center mesoanalysis show instability and shear increasing along 
the coast over the next few hours. Local heights around 1500 feet...cape 
values 500-1000 j/kg...0-6km shear 50-60kt...and 0-3km storm 
relative helicity 4-500 m2/s2. Isolated strong to severe thunderstorms 
will be possible with the best chance between roughly 4am-10am...with 
an isolated damaging wind gust or tornado possible. Categorical 
probability of precipitation continue for the first part of the day. Periods of moderate 
to heavy rain expected this morning into this afternoon with 
forecast soundings showing precipitable water values around 2 inches...which is 
about 3 South Dakota above normal for this time of year. An additional 1-3 
inches of rainfall possible...which could result in localized 
minor flooding. By 18z expect low to be off the NC/Virginia coast...with 
conditions gradually improving. Precipitation should be tapering off from 
SW to NE this afternoon. Many locations will see high temperatures this 
morning...falling this afternoon...ranging from low 50s to upper 
60s. 


&& 


Short term /tonight/... 
as of 315 am Wednesday...surface low will continue to lift along the NE and 
New England coast tonight. Precipitation will continue to taper off in 
the evening from SW to NE...and expect pred dry conditions 
overnight. Dries out quickly overnight with forecast sounding 
showing precipitable water values 0.5" by 00z. A strong shortwave trough will 
approach the region late with increasing cloud cover. Patchy fog 
possible overnight with wet ground...especially inland...but with cloud 
cover not expecting sig development at this time. Overnight lows 
in the middle 30s to lower 40s. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday through Tuesday/... 
middle/upper level wave will cross north of the area providing an 
increase of cloudiness on Thanksgiving. Drying of the column in the 
mean west flow and lack of appreciable forcing south of the main 
upper impulse should limit precipitation chances on Thursday so will keep the 
forecast dry. As high pressure builds toward the area, colder temperatures 
will filter in late in the week with highs Thursday ranging from 
around 50 north to around 55 south. Light north winds Thursday night will 
prevent a full drop off of temperatures but lows will fall to below freezing 
away from the coast. Friday even colder with highs only middle to upper 
40s despite lots of sunshine. Excellent radiational cooling 
conditions set up Friday night with high pressure overhead. Expect 
lows at least falling to the upper 20s inland with near freezing 
temperatures also at the coast. 


With upper ridge building to the south, dry stretch of weather will 
continue and temperatures gradually moderate during the weekend and 
into early next week as high pressure moves offshore and return flow 
strengthens. Highs in the middle and upper 50s Saturday will warm into 
the middle and upper 60s Sunday and Monday. A backdoor cold front will 
drop temperatures back into the upper 50s and low 60s on Tuesday. 
Models continue to suggest limited moisture with the front so will 
maintain the dry forecast through Tuesday. 


&& 


Aviation /08z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
short term /through tonight/... 
as of 1 am Wednesday...rain continues to overspread the area early this 
morning...with widespread IFR/LIFR ceilings. Forecast 
soundings/guidance/sref/narre in good agreement showing IFR and 
lower ceilings persisting into this afternoon. Low pressure will 
track along the coast this morning...then lift NE off the Virginia/NC 
border this afternoon...with conditions gradually improving. 
Periods of heavy rain will be possible through this afternoon. NE 
winds this morning becoming west/northwest this afternoon with gusts to 
20kt. 


Long term /Thursday through Sunday/... 
cloudiness increases as a middle/upper level wave will crosses the area 
Thursday but expect ceilings to remain VFR. Expect VFR conditions to 
dominate as surface high pressure moves into the region late this 
week and passes offshore during the weekend. May see periods of 
late night patchy fog over the weekend. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through today/... 
as of 315 am Wednesday...latest surface and buoy data indicate NE/southeast winds 
10-20kt with seas 4-6 feet. Conditions will continue to deteriorate 
over the next few hours as low pressure currently off the SC coast 
lifts north-northeast. The low will move along the NC coast today...and by 
this afternoon should be off the NC/Virginia coast. Strong southerly winds 
expected south of Oregon Inlet this morning...with east/southeast winds 
north...becoming west/northwest this afternoon as low lifts NE. Gale 
warnings continue for waters south of Oregon Inlet with 20-30kt 
and gusts 35-40kt through early this afternoon...while Small Craft Advisory 
continues for remaining waters/sounds and rivers. Though brief 
period of gale force gusts possible for northern waters late this 
morning and afternoon. Nwps and wavewatch in good agreement with 
seas peaking up to 13 feet on the outer waters. Winds will be 
gradually diminishing this evening and tonight as low moves along 
the New England coast. Elevated seas will continue through the 
period. 


Strong onshore winds this morning could result in minor water 
level rises...generally a foot or less. Minor rises will be 
possible along the northern Outer Banks initially...and then on 
the Soundside of the Outer Banks this afternoon as winds become 
W/nwly. No issues expected. 


Long term /Thursday through Sunday/... 
after a brief relative lull in winds early Thursday, northwest winds will 
again increase as a secondary surge of cold air pushes through the 
area Thursday afternoon. Small Craft Advisory conditions will be 
likely to continue into Thursday night most marine areas and into Friday 
for lingering 6 feet seas over the northern and central coastal 
waters. Winds will then diminish quickly late Friday into Friday night as 
high pressure moves overhead. Winds shift SW and steadily increase 
as the high pushes offshore during the weekend, possibly reaching 
Small Craft Advisory levels again by Sunday afternoon.
