NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
140 PM EDT Wednesday Jul 23 2014 


Synopsis... 
a cold front will approach from the northwest through Thursday 
and move into the area Friday...then dissipate across the area 
Saturday. Another cold front will approach the area Tuesday. 


&& 


Near term /this afternoon/... 
as of 140 PM Wednesday...minor update to the forecast this afternoon 
to adjust probability of precipitation based on latest trends and to tweak hourly 
temperatures/dewpoints and cloud cover...otherwise the forecast is in 
good shape. Convection has begun along the sea-breeze boundary 
just inland of the Crystal Coast with isolated storms initializing 
across Jones/Pitt counties. The subtropical ridge continues off 
the southeast coast today with an upper cut- off low gradually 
retrograding across the Gulf states. At the surface...the Bermuda 
high continues off the southeast coast while the Piedmont trough 
strengthens inland and a surface cold front pushes into the Ohio River 
valley. Models indicting deeper moisture moves offshore today with 
weak west/SW flow aloft...however the airmass remains moist with 
precipitable waters  at or above 2 inches. Increased insolation will bringing greater 
instability across the region with lifted indices around -4 to -6 
c and sbcapes 2000-2500 j/kg. Scattered thunderstorms expected 
today...though coverage should be less than previous days with 
limited upper level support...unidirectional low level flow and 
continued weak shear. The primary forcing mechanism for storms 
will be the seabreeze front and Piedmont trough to the west though 
pulse storms could develop just about anywhere in the unstable 
environment. BUFKIT shows weak mbe velocity mainly less than 10 knots 
suggesting slow storm motion and potential for training cells 
bringing locally heavy downpours and the threat for localized 
flooding of poor drainage and low lying areas. Low level 
thicknesses reach 1415-1420m this afternoon suggesting high temperatures 
around 90 inland with middle 80s along the coast. 


&& 


Short term /tonight/... 
as of 330 am Wednesday...the surface pattern changes little tonight 
though will begin to see height falls aloft as the upper shortwave 
trough digs into the Great Lakes/middle west. The attendant surface cold 
front will push into the Appalachians through the period. Expect 
convection to diminish through the evening with loss of surface based 
heating with greatest activity mainly offshore in vicinity of the Gulf 
Stream. Light SW flow continues overnight ahead of the front and 
expected limited fog development. Lows mainly in the middle 70s area 
wide. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday through Tuesday/... 
as of 230 am Wednesday...weak upper ridge break Downs Thursday with approach of 
short WV trough and surface front from the northwest. Kept 40-60 probability of precipitation for Thursday 
afternoon with highest probability of precipitation northwest associated with the short WV...approaching 
front and sea breeze front moving inland. Good chance probability of precipitation all areas 
Thursday night as the front drifts into the region and stalls near southern 
tier late. Strong storms will be possible as belt of enhanced westerly winds 
30-35 knots moves into the region Thursday afternoon into Friday evening along with 
unstable conditions. Damaging wind gusts and marginal severe hail 
will be possible. On Friday the front will gradually washes out over 
southern tier. Kept low chance probability of precipitation northwest tier associated with drier air moving in 
behind front...continue higher chances near the CST where moisture remains 
high. Friday night Thursday Sat night looks drier as upper trf drifts east with 
limited forcing. Kept probability of precipitation mainly in the 20 to 30 percent 
range...highest CST where moisture is higher. 


Inland surface trough will develop to the west sun with threat of widely scattered to 
scattered rain showers and thunderstorms and rain with best covering inland. Another upper trough and cold 
front will approach Monday with front drifting into the area Tuesday. Kept 
chance probability of precipitation for early next week. 


Warm day expected tomorrow on Thursday with highs in the lower 90s inland. 
Temperatures cool into the 80s Friday and Sat as the front stalls and 
dissipates to the S. SW flow resumes in earnest late in the weekend 
continuing into Monday with temperatures warming once again into the lower 90s 
inland. Temperatures cool again into the 80s as the next front moves into 
the region Tuesday. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Wednesday through Monday/... 
short term /through Thursday morning/... 
as of 140 PM Wednesday...mostly VFR expected through the period though 
could see brief reductions to visibilities/ceilings due to scattered 
thunderstorms this afternoon. SW flow will become light overnight 
limiting the fog potential. Could again see reductions to aviation 
conditions Thursday as a frontal system crosses eastern NC with 
showers and thunderstorms expected across the region. 


Long term /Thursday through Sunday/... 
as of 245 am Wednesday...mainly VFR conds expected Wednesday night with SW 
low level flow limiting the fog threat however cant rule out some 
lower ceilings at times. Rain showers and thunderstorms and rain will become more numerous later 
Thursday and Thursday night as surface front approaches and slowly sags southeast through 
most of the area. Expect some periods of reduced ceilings/visibilities in 
convection Thursday and Thursday evening and then may see stratus and fog 
develop later Thursday night as winds lighten up in the wake of front. 
Mainly VFR conds expected Friday through Sunday outside of isolated to scattered 
convection...however light winds and ample low level moisture Friday 
night and Sat night could result in patchy fog and St with reduced 
cigs/vsbys. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through Wednesday/ 
as of 140 PM Wednesday...latest surface and buoy data indicate SW winds 
5-15 knots and seas 2-3 feet in medium period seas 7-8 seconds. The 
Bermuda high will remain offshore with a Piedmont trough inland 
through the period while a cold front approaches from the 
northwest. SW winds around 5-15 knots this morning will increase to 
10-20 knots this afternoon and evening as the pressure gradient 
tightens. Seas around 2-4 feet this morning will build to 3-5 feet 
across the southern and central waters this afternoon and tonight 
under increased SW flow. 


Long term /Thursday through Sunday/ 
as of 245 am Wednesday...SW winds 15 to 20 knots expected on Thursday ahead 
of the cold front. Still a possibility of marginal Small Craft Advisory conds for Thursday 
and Thursday evening sply across the outer central coastal waters but for now 
will keep seas capped at 5 feet. Front will sag southeast through most of the 
region late Thursday night and early Friday with diminishing SW winds Thursday 
evening that will become northeasterly northern tier on Friday. Across southern tier front 
will likely stall in the vicinity with light and variable winds on Friday. 
Seas will subside to 2 to 4 feet Friday. As front dissipates and offshore 
high becomes dominant expect SW flow to return Friday night and Sat 
with speeds 5 to 15 kts and seas mainly 2 to 3 feet. SW winds will 
increase to near 20 kts later sun as the pressure gradient tightens between 
sharpening trough inland and offshore high. Seas of 2 to 4 feet early 
sun will build to 4 to 6 feet late.
