NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
1245 PM EDT sun Apr 26 2015 


Synopsis... 
developing low pressure offshore will pull away from the coast 
while a cold front continues to move south of the area today. 
High pressure builds over the area early next week before 
another low pressure system affects the region during the middle 
of the week. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
as of 1239 PM sun...continued overcast skies and northerly flow 
keeping temperatures in the 50s this afternoon. Main bulk of light 
rain has moved offshore but will be a slight chance of rain this 
afternoon with weak upper energy swinging through the area. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through 6 am Monday/... 
as of 350 am Sunday...a slight chance of a lingering evening 
shower otherwise dry weather prevails. Think low clouds will be 
slow to clear but expect gradual clearing overnight. Continued 
northerly flow will contribute to chilly low temperatures in the 
middle to upper 40s. 


&& 


Long term /Monday through Saturday/... 
as of 4 am sun...latest run of GFS/European model (ecmwf) in fairly good agreement 
through 12z Thursday...then quickly diverge in their handling of 
low pressure off the southeast coast. Will use model blend through 12z 
then HPC surface solution thereafter. 


High pressure over the northern plains will extend southeast into 
the area Monday into Tuesday in between departing low in the 
western Atlantic and low pressure developing in the north central 
Gulf. The high will weaken into Wednesday as the low in the Gulf 
develops and moves northeast. The low tracks just off the coast 
Thursday morning as it continues moving northeast...though 
confidence in exact track remains low at this point. Rain will 
overspread the area Wednesday and continue into Thursday. Rain 
will end Thursday night as the low moves away. Will go ahead and 
bump up probability of precipitation to likely across southern areas and coastal waters 
south of Cape Hatteras Wednesday night...and on the coastal waters 
from Cape Hatteras south on Thursday. Dry weather returns Friday 
and Saturday as a surface ridge builds in from the west. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Sunday through Thursday/... 
short term /through tonight/... 
as of 635 am Sunday...high confidence in IFR conditions 
persisting into early this afternoon. Classic cold season "wedge" 
pattern developing over NC today with moisture trapped under a 
frontal inversion leading to widespread and persistent low 
cloudiness. Expecting scattered mostly light showers as well this 
morning. Ceilings are forecast to lift from LIFR/IFR to MVFR 
around 18z then from MVFR to VFR around 00z. Expecting gradual 
clearing overnight which could lead to some patchy fog. Forecast 
moisture profiles look very shallow though so expecting ground fog 
and not much impact on visibilities at this time. 


Long term /Monday through Thursday/... 
as of 4 am sun...VFR Monday and Tuesday with dry weather 
forecast. Sub-VFR in scattered to numerous showers Wednesday and 
Thursday as low pressure moves northeast just off the coast. 
Surface winds north to northwest 10-15 knots Monday and Tuesday. 
East winds less than 10 knots Wednesday...then north 10-15 knots 
Thursday. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through tonight/... 
as of 1242 PM sun...northerly flow has increased to 15 to 20 knots 
over the North Carolina coastal waters this early afternoon with 3 
to 5 foot seas. Deepening low pressure is moving away from the area. 
Tightening gradient will produce small craft advsory winds and seas 
over the northern and central waters through the afternoon and into 
the evening hours. 


Winds will tend to back to the northwest and diminish to 10 to 20 knots 
tonight as the low pulls away from the waters. This will result in 
seas subsiding to 3 to 5 feet. 


Long term /Monday through Thursday/... 
as of 4 am sun...northerly flow will be the rule through the long 
term. Models in fairly good agreement overall through the period. 
High pressure will extend in from the northwest Monday and Tuesday 
then weaken on Wednesday as low pressure developing in the 
northern Gulf moves northeast. The low is forecast to pass by just 
off the coast Thursday morning and quickly depart during the day. 
Winds and seas will briefly increase Monday night into Tuesday in 
response to low pressure in the Canadian Maritimes moving south 
southeast. Small craft seas forecast for the coastal waters north 
of Ocracoke Tuesday. Pressure gradient loosens Tuesday night as 
the low then moves off to the east. Exact track of the low on 
Thursday is still not certain. For now forecasting small craft 
seas to return on the coastal waters north of Cape Lookout...but 
future model runs may require significant changes. 


&& 


Mhx watches/warnings/advisories... 
NC...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 2 am EDT Monday for amz135. 
Small Craft Advisory until 11 PM EDT this evening for amz130-131.
