NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
136 PM EST Friday Feb 12 2016 


Synopsis... 
weak low pressure south of the area will move northeast offshore 
of the coast through this evening. An Arctic cold front will sweep 
through late tonight with cold high pressure building in from the 
northwest through the weekend. The high will move offshore Sunday 
night and Monday. Low pressure will approach from the southwest 
Monday night and move over or just west of the area Tuesday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
as of 1 PM Friday...low pressure centered south of Cape Lookout early 
this afternoon with moisture continue to lift across eastern NC. 
A wintry precipitation continues across most of the area with mainly 
snow north of Highway 264...mainly rain along the Crystal Coast 
and a mix of ptypes in between. Kmhx cirrocumulus showing the melting layer 
well and based on this...surface temperatures and mping reports have dropped 
Carteret...Pamlico and Outer Banks Hyde counties from the Winter 
Weather Advisory. Have not received reports of much accumulation as of 
yet...but intensities have been increasing with visibilities 
lowering and expect some accumulation through the afternoon... 
greatest north of Highway 264 where 1-3 inches are still expected 
and generally less than an inch of snow/sleet elsewhere. 
Likewise... have not received any reports of impacts across area 
roadways but conditions are expected to worsen this 
afternoon...especially northern areas. Precipitation is expected to begin 
to taper off across western section late this afternoon. Temperatures 
generally in the low to middle 30s and driven primarily by 
evaporative cooling this afternoon. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through 6 am Saturday/... 
as of 240 am Friday...precipitation will rapidly end CST with continue mostly 
snow/sleet north and rain/snow S. Additional accumulate after 0z will be 
minor if any. Arctic front will then sweep through late with 
increasing northwest winds espcly CST. Temperatures will drop into the middle 20s 
inland with around 30/lower 30s beaches. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Thursday/... 
as of 3 am Friday...below normal temperatures will continue through 
early next week. A low pressure system will impact the region 
Monday and Tuesday...bringing widespread precipitation to the area. 


Cold high pressure will build in from the northwest Sat and sun. 
850mb temperatures will plummet to -15 to -20c by Sunday with low level 
thickness dropping into the 1225-1240m range...resulting in very 
cold temperatures this weekend. Some record low temperatures possible Sat 
night...then low maximum values possible sun...see climate section 
below for additional information. Low level thickness values support 
highs 32-38 degrees Sat...and then upper 20s to low 30s Sunday. 
Overnight lows...mid/upper teens to low 20s for both Saturday and 
Sunday nights. The Outer Banks could see some flurries on and off 
Sat night into sun...though think most of the moisture will remain 
offshore. Wind chill values in the single digits likely Sat night 
into Sunday morning across the region. 


High pressure will shift off the coast Monday as the next system 
approaches the area. Strong shortwave moving out of the Central 
Plains will move eastward...while developing surface low approaches 
from the deep south. Slight model differences continue regarding 
the timing...strength of the shortwave and the surface low. Though 
models continue to track the low through the southeast states...and then 
through central NC Tuesday. Will continue SC/low chance probability of precipitation Monday. 
Precipitation could begin as light snow inland with a rain/snow mix along 
the coast Monday morning before transitioning to all rain by 
Monday afternoon. Forecast soundings now showing a slight warm 
nose developing in the morning...so could see some sleet mixed in. 
Confidence remains low...but some very light accumulation 
possible. Increased probability of precipitation to likely Monday night and 
Tuesday....with period of heavy rainfall possible. Strong S/southeasterly 
flow is expected to develop across eastern NC Monday night into 
Tuesday...and given this scenario could see some thunderstorms...possibly 
strong/severe. Strong S/southeast winds could bring high surf conditions 
and minor water level rises to coastal areas. 


Temperatures will rebound next week...highs Monday 40-50 degrees...then 
Tuesday/Wednesday in the 50s. Some guidance has highs getting into the 
low/middle 60s Tuesday. A cold front will push through the area late Wednesday 
into early Thursday. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Friday through Wednesday/... 
short term /through 18z Saturday/... 
as of 1230 PM Friday...deteriorating conditions through the 
afternoon hours as a low pressure system continues to develop off 
the coast and move just south of the area through the rest of the 
day...then exiting to the NE tonight. With cold air mass in 
place...have observed a wintry mix at ewn/oaj with isolated/pgv more 
recently observing snow the last hour or two. Expect ewn/oaj to 
be mainly rain (period of freezing rain) with the temperature hovering 
around freezing. Further inland taf sites will be within the 
snow/sleet mix. Visibilities and ceilings expected to be around the MVFR/IFR 
criteria during the afternoon...perhaps dropping briefly to 
LIFR...persisting into early evening. Lingering low level moisture and 
lack of strong cold air advection as low moves to NE expected to result in sub- 
VFR visibilities and ceilings through evening with improving conditions 
overnight. Winds mainly less than 10 knots during period...NE today 
becoming west-northwest tonight. Gusty northwest flow will develop Saturday. 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
as of 3 am Friday...pred VFR conditions expected through Sun night. 
Northwest wind gusts 20-25kt Sat behind the front. Sub-VFR conditions 
expected to develop Monday and continue through Tuesday. 
Precipitation could begin as light snow or light wintry mix Monday 
morning before changing over to rain by Monday afternoon. Heavy 
rain will be possible Monday night and Tuesday as low pressure 
system impacts the region. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /today and tonight/... 
as of 1 PM Friday...low pressure to the S this afternoon will move NE 
into the evening. NE winds generally around 10 to 20 
kts...strongest southern tier and Pamlico Sound. These winds will lead 
to 2 to 4 foot seas. The low will depart tonight with Arctic front 
crossing late. Gusty northwest winds will develop in wake of front and 
have Small Craft Advisory developing for all but western rivers overnight. Seas will 
likely reach 5 to 7 feet outer waters by early Sat. 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
as of 3 am Friday...gusty northwest winds continue Sat into early sun behind 
the cold front. Northwest winds 20-30kt with occasional gusts up to 35kt 
with seas building to 5-9ft. Added chance freezing spray Sat night 
into sun with very cold temperatures and gusty winds. Expect winds and 
seas to drop below Small Craft Advisory conditions sun evening as high pressure 
crests over the waters. However reprieve will be short 
lived...expect Small Craft Advisory conditions to re-develop Monday afternoon. An 
area of low pressure will approach from the SW Monday...then 
likely track inland over eastern NC Tuesday. 


Based on the current track of the low...both the GFS and European model (ecmwf) 
show strong sustained gale force winds with gusts to storm force 
Tuesday. Did not go quite that high yet...but S/southeast gale force winds 
are likely. Capped seas at 8-17ft for now...wavewatch is building 
seas on the outer central waters to 23ft. Strong S/southeast winds could 
bring high surf conditions and minor water level rises to coastal 
areas.
