NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
916 am EDT sun may 1 2016 


Synopsis... 
a warm front will lift north through the area today. A cold front 
will approach from the northwest Monday night...then stall near or 
just offshore of the coast late Tuesday and Tuesday night. A 
series of low pressure systems will move along the front Wednesday 
into Thursday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
as of 915 am sun...warm front has crossed southern tier and shld be 
through entire area next cpl hours. Radar shows light precipitation just to northwest 
and this will likely miss area. Good cluster of rain showers/thunderstorms and rain over 
north central South Carolina is moving east-northeast and if holds together 
will impact at least inland areas this afternoon. Overall think current 
pop forecast looks good with chance probability of precipitation inland and slight chance to no chance 
closer to CST this afternoon. With srly winds developing...increasing 
thicknesses and at least a little sun shld see lower 80s inland to 
70s CST this afternoon. Forecast soundings show sb cape values 
increasing to 1000-1500 j/kg, Li values -3/-4c with 0-6km shear 
around 25kt...mainly west of Highway 17. A few isolated strong pulse type 
thunderstorms possible with small hail and gusty winds. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through 6 am Monday/... 
as of 7 am sun...expect any lingering convection to wane with 
loss of heating...and could see a bit of a lull with precipitation 
chances increasing again late. The combination of a middle-level 
shortwave...deep moist S/SW flow and favorable jet dynamics will 
lead to better precipitation chances overnight. As precipitable water values increase 
to just over 1.5". Will continue higher chance probability of precipitation with SC thunderstorm 
mention. Overnight lows in the middle 60s. 


&& 


Long term /Monday through Saturday/... 
as of 330 am Sunday...a rather active period will continue across 
the region through most of the next week as a trough lingers 
across the eastern United States...becoming a closed low and 
moving toward the Carolinas and middle-Atlantic coast late in the 
week. This will lead to unsettled weather. 


Monday through Tuesday night: a strong middle-level shortwave crosses 
the region on Monday coupled with increasing deep moisture ahead 
of a slowly-moving cold front moving into the mountains. The 
atmosphere will be quite unstable Monday afternoon with forecast 
Li values of -6 to -8c and surface-based convective available potential energy around 2000 j/kg. 
Bulk shear values are fairly weak so while there may not be any 
organized severe weather...isolated strong to severe thunderstorms 
will be possible. It will also be quite warm on Monday with high 
temperatures in the low/middle 80s away from the water. Probability of precipitation ramp up 
to likely by Monday night into Tuesday evening as cold front 
stalls or moves very slowly into the NC Piedmont with several weak 
waves of low pressure moving along it. The area is in a marginal 
threat of severe weather for Tuesday given strong wind shear. 
Although overall instability will not be quite as high as 
Monday...the potential will exist for more organized severe 
thunderstorms. With more clouds and precipitation...high 
temperatures will be limited to the middle/upper 70s most areas. 


Wednesday through saturday: the chance of showers and a good 
coverage of thunderstorms continues on Wednesday as cold front 
pivots toward the coast coupled with very strong middle-level 
shortwave. Decent instability during Wednesday afternoon with lifted indice's 
-4 to -6c and strong low-level shear could again produce the 
threat of strong to severe thunderstorms. Beyond Wednesday night 
into late week...with the cold front offshore and slightly lower 
thickness values...the pattern will then be dominated by the 
closed upper low dropping south from the Ohio Valley across the 
Carolinas to the middle Atlantic. This will lead to a more showery 
regime in which the medium range models have trouble assessing the 
coverage and probability of precipitation. As a result...have 
continued with low chance probability of precipitation through the period with 
temperatures a few degrees below normal into the weekend. 


&& 


Aviation /13z Sunday through Thursday/... 
short term /through tonight/... 
as of 7 am sun...currently a mixed bag of LIFR/IFR/VFR across the 
taf sites this morning. The low clouds should erode fairly 
quickly this morning as low level flow becomes southerly behind 
the warm front...becoming pred VFR by late morning. Isolated to 
widely scattered showers and thunderstorms possible this afternoon and 
evening...with better precipitation chances late tonight and Monday 
morning. Sub-VFR stratus possible again tonight with guidance 
showing the potential for IFR ceilings late tonight into Monday 
morning. 


Long term /Monday through Thursday/... 
as of 335 am Sunday...an active weather pattern is expected 
through much of the week. The best chance for widespread sub-VFR 
flying conditions will be from later Monday evening into Tuesday 
night. There will be scattered...potentially strong to severe 
thunderstorms each afternoon from Monday through Wednesday with 
brief bouts of MVFR/IFR ceilings and visibility. The pattern becomes 
more showery on Thursday with an upper low moving southeast across 
the region...but occasional sub-VFR conditions are possible 
Thursday as well. In areas that receive rainfall during the 
day...some patchy late night stratus/fog will be possible with 
brief IFR periods. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through tonight/... 
as of 915 am sun...models underdone with east-northeast swell central and northern 
waters. Overall think seas will be mainly 4 to 5 feet these areas 
into the afternoon...with 2 to 4 foot seas further S. Srly winds 
developing central and southern waters will spread north this afternoon with 
speeds 10 to 15 knots poss gusting to 15 to 20 knots. The south-southwest winds will 
continue tonight at 10 to 20 kts with seas 3 to 5 feet...will monitor for 
poss 6 feet seas around buoy 41025 tonight where warmer SST will aid 
mixing. 


Long term /Monday through Thursday/... 
as of 340 am Saturday...an active weather pattern will continue 
through much of the next week...however...no Small Craft Advisory 
conditions are expected until at least Thursday. Expect S/SW winds 
at 10 to 15 knots with seas generally 3-5 feet for Monday through 
Wednesday. A slow-moving cold front finally arrives in the coastal 
waters late Wednesday with winds becoming more west/west-northwest Thursday at 
10-15 knots. Wavewatch guidance does show some 6 foot seas over 
the outer periphery of the central and southern marine zones 
during the day on Thursday as winds back to SW/west in the wake of 
exiting low pressure.
