NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
950 PM EST Wednesday Dec 17 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will build in from the northwest through Friday. 
Developing low pressure will develop in the northern Gulf Saturday 
and move off the North Carolina coast Sunday. High pressure is 
expected to build over the area Monday. A stronger low will move 
north of the region for the middle of next week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 937 PM wedweak flow will continue over eastern North Carolina 
through the nighttime hours with high pressure over the area and a 
weak trough over the western part of the state. High level clouds 
are streaming over the state from system over the Southern Plains. 
Trough will move over the area overnight shifting the light flow to 
northwesterly. Forecast soundings showing fairly dry in the low 
levels so fog is not expected to be an issue. Despite thin 
clouds...temperatures should drop into the middle 30s before sunrise. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday/... 
as of 3 PM Wednesday...high cloudiness will spread over the 
eastern Carolinas during the afternoon on Wednesday in a fast 
zonal middle-level flow. Weak cold advection will keep temperatures 
in the low/middle 60s for highs...some 10-12 degrees cooler than 
today's readings. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 315 PM Wednesday...surface high pressure will build in from the Ohio 
Valley...meanwhile a weak ridge will build cross the region. 
Low level thickness values suggest high temperatures in the upper 40s/middle 
50s on Friday. 


Active pattern expected this weekend into next week. Models are in a 
good agreement with the developing low this weekend. Models have the 
low developing Friday near the southern Texas/Gulf of Mexico border and 
then move across the Gulf states on Saturday. Low is expected to 
intensify off the southeast coast Sat night into Sunday. Uncertainty 
remains as 12z/GFS has the low a farther away from the NC coast and 
00z/European model (ecmwf) has it closer. Overall...both models are depicting a weak 
system and impacts remain small for the area...at this time. Expect 
rain across the area on Sat morning...then tapering off Sunday 
Morning. Sun will mainly light rain/drizzle...as low moves off the 
middle-Atlantic coast. 


Models are coming into better agreement with the next low system 
early next week. Will keep Monday morning dry and starting probability of precipitation 
Monday afternoon. Moisture and middle/upper dynamics increase Tuesday as 
the low will likely push northeast...and strong upper trough 
approaching from the west. Strong low becomes vertically stacked 
over the Great Lake region and will push its associated cold front 
middle week bring unsettled conditions. 


Low level thickness are suggesting highs this weekend and into 
next week...in the upper 40s to middle 50s...and overnight lows 
generally middle 30s to 40s. 


&& 


Aviation /19z Wednesday through Monday/... 
short term /through 18z Thursday/... 
as of 604 PM Wednesday...VFR conditions over eastern North Carolina tafs 
tonight and tomorrow as high pressure builds in from the west. Dry 
atmosphere and light winds will be the rule. 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
as of 330 PM Wednesday...VFR conditions will dominate Friday. A low pressure 
system is expected to impact eastern NC this weekend with likely 
possible of MVFR conditions with periods of rain. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /tonight and Thursday/... 
as of 945 PM Wednesday... westerly flow over the North Carolina coastal 
waters this evening 10 knots or less with seas 2 to 3 feet. Trough 
to the west will move over the area overnight. This will shift the 
surface flow to northwesterly with speeds 10 to 15 knots. 


Expect generally northwest/north winds on Thursday at 10 to 15 knots with seas 
of 2 up to 5 feet over the outer portions of the marine zones. 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
as of 345 PM Wednesday...surface high pressure will continue on Friday from 
the northwest. Winds will remain from the northwest 10-15 kts with seas 2-3 feet. 
Used a blend of both ww3 and nwps as nwps was slightly overdone with 
the offshore flow. 


Models are in good agreement with low to impact this weekend. Models 
have the low developing Friday near the southern Texas/Gulf of Mexico 
border and then move across the Gulf states on Saturday. Its 
expected to intensify off the southeast coast Sat night into Sunday. Winds 
will be north/NE winds 10-15kt early Sat and peaking 15-20kts late 
Saturday into Sunday. Flow becomes north/NE 10-15 on Monday. Waves will 
increase 3-4 feet Saturday and peaking 5 feet...north of Ocracoke. At 
this time...will continue monitor if Small Craft Advisory conditions are likely to 
develop across the waters late Sat night/early sun.
