Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 1031 PM EDT Tuesday Oct 21 2014 Synopsis... a cold front will move across the area tonight. Cool high pressure will build over the area during the remainder of the week. A dry cold front will drop through the area late Saturday then high pressure returns through early next week. && Near term /until 6 am Wednesday morning/... as of 1030 PM Tuesday...short wave energy dropping into the mean upper trough position over the eastern United States will cut off an upper low over the middle Atlantic region overnight. Associated shortwave is bringing another cold front across eastern NC currently. Did have a few showers break out ahead of this feature but they are producing only light rain and are widely scattered. Made minor pop tweak back to 30 across the extreme northeast County Warning Area. High based stratocumulus will occur as the upper trough moves into the area. Overnight lows will range from the upper 40s/lower 50s inland to the upper 50s beaches. && Short term /6 am Wednesday morning through 6 PM Wednesday/... as of 300 PM Tuesday...strong model consensus that vertically stacked low pressure will move off of the northern middle Atlantic Wednesday. Associated wrap around moisture in the form of light showers could affect the northern portion of the area. Will carry chance probability of precipitation in the afternoon eastern zones as the deepest moisture moves into the area but again with lower than normal confidence due to the westerly low level flow. Cold advection following the front will lead to highs in the middle to upper 60s with widespread self destruct stratocumulus with any insolation and cold pool aloft. && Long term /Wednesday night through Tuesday/... as of 345 PM Tuesday...good agreement continues amongst medium range model suite so little changes to forecast thinking. The low pressure system just off the middle Atlantic coast will be deepening while moving away from the area Wednesday night while high pressure ridges down from the Great Lakes into the deep south. The gradient between these features will lead to continuing gusty winds 30-35 miles per hour for the northern Outer Banks Wednesday night. Most of the area will remain dry though far northeastern portions of the County Warning Area...mainly the northern obx could see scattered rain showers Wednesday evening due to moisture wrapping around the strengthening low to the northeast coincident with significant lift in place. Ens quantitative precipitation forecast fields amongst naefs/sref indicate this scenario as well. The sprawling high pressure system to the west will build in Thursday and shunt any precipitation well northeast of the area...leading to a dry rest of the long term period under northwest flow aloft. A non- eventful short wave will swing through on Saturday though will be moisture starved and not expecting any precipitation...only a reinforcement of the lower humidities. In fact...expecting a large diurnal temperature swing for Thursday through early next week due to the low dewpoints expected...with highs approaching or exceeding climatology by Sunday into Monday...though lows will remain below climatology into the 40s away from the beaches. Have hedged overnight lows more in line with ecm ensmos for the extended period. && Aviation /03z Wednesday through Sunday/... short term /through 18z Wed/... as of 730pm Tuesday...a deep trough will approach from the west and a cold front will cross tonight helping to develop some middle- level clouds. Winds will become northwestward by early morning. Lingering high clouds and some afternoon cumulus expected tomorrow with gusty northwest flow. Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... as of 345 PM Tuesday...predominant VFR conditions expected through the long term under mostly sunny skies. High pressure will build in from the west through the period with an overall dry airmass thus do not expect reductions in visibility or ceilings...although cannot completely rule out brief radiation fog or br in low spots and river valleys in the early mornings due to large water/land temperature contrasts. && Marine... short term /through Wednesday/... as of 1030 PM Tuesday...forecast looks on track with cold front progressing through the area and winds shifting to northwest behind it. Increasing winds and building seas behind the front will lead to Small Craft Advisory conditions developing Wednesday morning and afternoon across the sounds and the waters north of Cape Lookout. Westerly winds to 15 knots early this evening will shift to northwest around 20 knots late this evening then increase to 25 knots Wednesday. Seas will build to 5 to 8 feet Wednesday north of lookout. Long term /Wednesday through Saturday/... as of 345 PM Tuesday...no changes to Small Craft Advisory headlines except to extend the ending time of the northern/central legs through Friday morning. A tight northwesterly pressure gradient will develop between a strengthening area of low pressure off the Middle- Atlantic States and high pressure over the southern U.S. Northwest winds will increase 20-30 knots with seas building 6-9 feet for the central and northern waters. Could be several hours of gale force gusts for the northern waters and eastern sounds Wednesday evening though not enough confidence on duration or extent to upgrade headlines at this time. The low will slowly move northeast away from the region allowing the tightest gradient to shift northeast as well. Winds will subside below Small Craft Advisory criteria for the Albemarle and Pamlico sounds by midday Thursday. High pressure will shift east over the waters Friday but continued northwest flow aloft will allow for several dry short wave troughs to continue west to northwest winds over the waters through the weekend. Local Swan/nwps continues to run a little high so blended previous forecast with latest nwps/wavewatch guidance for seas forecast with this forecast package. && Mhx watches/warnings/advisories... NC...none. Marine...Small Craft Advisory from 2 PM Wednesday to 2 PM EDT Thursday for amz130-131-135-156. Small Craft Advisory from 11 am Wednesday to noon EDT Friday for amz150-152-154. && $$ Synopsis...jme near term...rsb short term...jme long term...tl aviation...rsb/tl/Lep marine...rsb/jme/tl
