NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
1245 am EDT Wednesday may 27 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will continue over eastern North Carolina through the 
period. A weak boundary will develop over the area late in the 
weekend. 


&& 


Near term /overnight/... 
as of 1245 am Wednesday...no sig changes needed to previous forecast for 
update. Strong ridging aloft will continue over the southeastern 
U.S. Tonight with surface high pressure continuing to extend in 
from the northeast. Forecast soundings indicating low level 
moisture will persist into the evening with a decrease of cloud 
cover after midnight. Temperatures overnight will remain mild with lows 
in the upper 60s inland to lower 70s along the coast/obx. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday/... 
as of 205 PM Tuesday...high pressure will continue to nose down into 
the area through Wednesday. Boundary forming over the central part 
of the state combined with weak upper level energy could kick off 
some storms during the afternoon which may move into western 
sections of forecast area. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Tuesday/... 
as of 320 PM Tuesday...ridging aloft will continue near or just off the 
coast keeping area mainly dry through most of the period. 


The upper ridge just off the coast will weaken a bit through late week 
but remain strong enough to suppress most convective potential 
into the weekend. Will keep slight to low chance probability of precipitation through the 
weekend, mainly coinciding with afternoon/early evening diurnal 
cycles/sea breeze interactions. By Monday the ridge will begin to 
get suppressed a bit more as short wave energy moves into Ohio 
Valley region and may see a bit better covering of precipitation espcly 
inland. 


Low level thicknesses do not change much through the period with highs 
mainly 85 to 90 inland and upper 70s/low 80s beaches. Lows will continue 
in the 60s inland with beaches upper 60s to around 70. 


&& 


Aviation /06z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
short term /through tonight/... 
as of 1245 am Wednesday...pred VFR conditions expected through the 
period...though there will be the potential for periods of MVFR 
ceilings through late morning based on forecast soundings/narre 
and observation to the west. Confidence in MVFR remains low so will 
continue to only include at oaj at this time. Isolated/widely scattered 
showers/thunderstorms possible this afternoon and early evening. Southerly winds 
continue with gusts around 15kt this afternoon. 


Long term /Thursday through Sunday/... 
as of 320 PM Tuesday...VFR conditions should dominate through the 
period. There will be typical threat of patchy late night fog as 
low levels gradually moisten but coverage and duration shld be quite 
limited. Also could be some isolated/scattered rain showers/thunderstorms and rain during afternoon/early 
evening deep inland each day. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /tonight and Wednesday/... 
as of 1245 am Wednesday...latest observation show gusty southerly winds 10-20kt with 
seas 2-4ft. These winds should subside later tonight as gradient 
slackens per latest 3km hrrr. Seas remain wind-wave dominated at 3 
feet every 5-6 seconds. High pressure will continue extending over 
the North Carolina coastal waters from the northeast through 
Wednesday yielding south to southeasterly flow around the bottom 
of the ridge. Gradient will remain loose with speeds of 10-15 
knots and seas 2-3 feet. 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... 
as of 320 PM Tuesday...high pressure will remain offshore through the 
forecast period bringing mainly light S to southeast flow along the 
coast through Thursday. Weak inverted trough develops offshore Thursday 
night with surface flow backing to east/NE but remaining light. Winds 
veer to southeast/south again during the weekend as the offshore surface 
trough washes out or deamplifies. Seas will continue at 2 to 4 
feet...but may see some 5 foot seas far outer central waters by the 
weekend.
