NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
928 am EST sun Nov 23 2014 


Synopsis... 
a warm front will lift north through the region this afternoon and 
tonight. A cold front will approach from the west Monday and push 
offshore by early Tuesday. Low pressure will develop along the front 
late Tuesday night and move northeast offshore of the coast 
Wednesday. The low will depart to the northeast Wednesday night with 
high pressure building over the region late in the week. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
as of 924 am sun...light rain over the southern sections of the 
forecast area...with isolated showers over other sections. Steady 
rain having a hard time moving further north with the lower 
dewpoints. Models showing high dewpoints making a push northward by 
midday...allowing the rain to overspread all of eastern North 
Carolina. Forecast soundings showing good low level jet around 2k 
feet but unidirectional winds in the low levels at midday. 
Directional shear and increasing winds up to 6k feet becoming better 
organized by 21z. Cross sections showing the best low level lift 
occuring between around 21z and 09z tonight. However instability 
doesnt appear to ramp up until after sunset. Precipitable water 
values near an inch and three quarters this afternoon. Precipitation 
to the south of the area has a tendency to limit instability. 
Boundary along the coast will lift through the area after sunset. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through 6 am Monday/... 
as of 330 am Sunday...by this evening...instability increases from 
the south as strong warm front moves north. Very impressive low- 
level shear values indicated by forecast soundings...with srh 
helicity values upwards of 600-700 by 00z tonight. This coincides 
with the arrival of the instability and most of the County Warning Area remains in 
a slight risk of severe thunderstorms. The primary threat will be strong 
damaging winds and the risk of isolated tornadoes given this shear 
environment. The tornado/severe threat should wane after 06z as 
the flow becomes more unidirectional. In addition to the severe 
threat...quantitative precipitation forecast totals of 1 to 2 inches will be possible as deep 
moisture is advected from the Atlantic with very impressive low- 
level moisture transport. Given the warm SW winds...expect 
temperatures to fall very little tonight...likely remaining in the 
lower 60s. 


&& 


Long term /Monday through Saturday/... 
as of 330 am sun...large upper trough over the central part of the 
country with lots of energy rotating around it will make for an 
active period into Thanksgiving with high pressure taking hold 
through the remainder of the period. This active weather could 
hamper Holiday travel plans. 


Trough will continue to dig into the southern tier states through 
middle week then lift through the southeast and middle Atlantic through 
the end of the week. Most of the precipitation chances will end by 
Monday morning associated with a vigorous shortwave moving through the 
area. Kept small chance probability of precipitation in on Monday until the first cold front 
moves through the area Tuesday night. Won't get much of a break as 
strong upper level energy will swing through the base of the upper 
trough helping to form a wave on the surface front in the Gulf 
Tuesday that will move up the East Coast during the night Tuesday 
night. Cross sections showing deep layer moisture and good lift. As 
mentioned. The 00z GFS and European model (ecmwf) are now closer in phase 
with their solutions with deep the trough and area of low pressure 
deepening along the coast Wednesday but still have differences that 
will affect the forecast...especially on the exact track of the low and 
strength of winds. Models do both produce a good amount of quantitative precipitation forecast with 
heavy rains and windy conditions developing late Tuesday night and 
continuing through the day Wednesday with precipitation ending 
Wednesday night as the low pulls away from the coast. The area will 
likely see 1 to 2 inches or rain from late Tuesday night through the 
evening Wednesday. Increased probability of precipitation to likely inland to categorical 
along the coast Wednesday. 


The GFS shows a chance there will be a bit of moisture left across 
the area as a surge of cold air gets ushered in behind the departing 
system Wednesday night. That could result in a brief rain snow mix 
or perhaps flurries. The European model (ecmwf) seems to more likely have most of the 
moisture depart before colder air. Not much confidence on which 
solution will be right at this point but opted for more likely 
keeping precipitation all rain here. Even if we did see a few flakes 
Wednesday night do not expect it would not amount to anything. 
Thursday into Saturday drier and cool high pressure builds over the 
area with mostly sunny skies but below normal temperatures. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Sunday through Thursday/... 
short term /today and tonight/... 
as of 630 am Sunday...widespread light rain now spreading into the 
region. The rain is falling from generally a middle cloud deck but 
ceilings should lower through the morning with widespread MVFR 
ceilings through the balance of the day. As the atmosphere becomes 
more unstable later this evening...expect strong gusty S/SW winds 
with locally strong to severe thunderstorms possible. Expect ceilings and 
visibilities to drop to MVFR by tonight with widespread precipitation. 


Long term /Monday through Thursday/... 
as of 330 am sun...MVFR/IFR conditions should improve to MVFR to VFR 
on Monday after the warm front and vigorous shortwave passes through 
the area. There will still be a small chance of rain with sub VFR 
conditions possible in the precipitation Monday and Tuesday. A 
strong low pressure will move up the coast Tuesday night with IFR 
conditions likely...in addition to rain and strong winds through the 
day Wednesday. By Thursday high pressure builds in and VFR conditions 
return. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /today and tonight/... 
as of 927 am sun...southeasterly flow over the North Carolina 
coastal waters this mroning running around 10 knots or less with 
seas 2 to 3 feet. Weak boundary along the coast will help ramp up 
winds later in the afternoon as it starts to lift north as a warm 
front. 


A Gale Warning is in effect from this evening through late Monday 
afternoon. By tonight...S/SW winds increase to 25 to 35 knots with a 
few gusts to 40 knots likely with seas building to as high as 15 
feet per local nwps/Swan model. These gusty winds and rough seas 
will accompanied by areas of heavy rain and embedded 
thunderstorms...some strong. No changes to the marine forecast with 
this update. 


Long term /Monday through Thursday/... 
as of 330 am sun...will have a continued period of strong gusty 
southerly winds continuing into Monday slowly diminishing from west 
to east as the cold front approaches the area. Gale conditions will 
end by late Monday across the central waters but seas will remain 
treacherous through Monday night. A weak cold front moves through 
Monday night with light northerly winds for the day Tuesday. 


Strong low pressure will develop along the front off the coast 
Tuesday night and move up the coast Wednesday. The GFS and European model (ecmwf) 
differ a bit on the location and timing of the front with the 00z 
European model (ecmwf) keeping it right along the coast which results in lighter 
winds on Wednesday. Favored previous forecast and GFS for keeping the 
low just off the coast which may allow gale conditions to develop 
Wednesday with this feature. Current forecast has gusts to gale force on 
Wednesday in strong northerly flow. Seas 10 to 12 feet are possible 
Wednesday into Wednesday night as a result. Conditions only slowly 
improve by Thanksgiving morning...with seas falling below 6 feet in 
the central waters late in the day on Thanksgiving. Winds will 
eventually become light by the weekend as high pressure builds over 
the area. 


&& 


Mhx watches/warnings/advisories... 
NC...none. 
Marine...Gale Warning from 10 PM this evening to 4 PM EST Monday for 
amz130-131-135>137-150-152-154-156-158.
