NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
903 PM EST Friday Nov 28 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will build across the area tonight...then move 
offshore through the weekend. A cold front will move through the 
area Monday night with high pressure building in Tuesday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Saturday morning/... 
as of 900 PM Friday...high pressure will crest over the area 
overnight and is producing calm winds and clear skies. Resulting 
strong radiational cooling is leading to rapidly falling 
temperatures this evening with lows expected to bottom out in the 
middle 20s inland and lower 30s along the coast. Fly in the ointment 
is high and middle level cloudiness to the west and northwest moving 
toward the region. Trend the past couple of hours is for these 
clouds to dissipate, plus the models keep the bulk of these clouds 
just to our north but will still have to monitor due to their 
potential impacts on low temperatures if there is sufficient 
coverage and opacity. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Saturday morning through 6 PM Saturday/... 
as of 330 PM Friday...high pressure will slide offshore Sat with light 
SW return flow developing bringing a warming trend. A weak 
shortwave will move through the northwest flow aloft with upper level 
moisture bringing a period of high or possibly middle clouds through 
the day but otherwise it will remain dry. Low level thicknesses 
support highs in the low to middle 50s 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Friday/... 
as of 310 PM Friday...Ridge of high pressure will move offshore 
Saturday night and Sunday with southwesterly flow developing. This 
should lead to milder low temperatures in the middle/upper 30s. Temperatures on 
Sunday should reach the mild 60s area-wide under generally sunny 
skies. With the high elongated to our south...Monday should also 
be pleasant with sunshine and highs into the upper 60s over most 
of the County Warning Area. Back door front dives south Monday night into Tuesday 
as piece of middle-level vorticity moves along the North Carolina/Virginia 
border. Will have a small chance of showers...mainly behind the 
front Monday night into Tuesday...but any rain amounts will be 
light. Temperatures behind the front on Tuesday will be some 10 to 
15 degrees cooler with highs in the 50s as high pressure builds 
across the eastern Carolinas. The high moves offshore Friday. 
Temperatures will be near or slightly above normal for the latter 
half of next week. 


&& 


Aviation /01z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
short term /through Saturday/... 
as of 600 PM Friday...high confidence in VFR conditions prevailing 
through the taf period as high pressure builds over the region through 
Saturday. Winds will become calm overnight producing good 
radiational cooling but a very dry airmass is in place with lows 
not expected to reach cross-over temperatures so not anticipating any fog 
tonight with only middle and high level clouds expected. 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 315 PM Friday...with high pressure dominating the 
weather...expect VFR conditions Saturday night through Monday. A 
back door cold front may lead to some light showers Monday night 
through Tuesday with some sub-VFR conditions. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through Saturday/... 
as of 900 PM Friday...all the small craft advisories have expired. High 
pressure continues to build over the waters leading to diminishing 
winds and seas. Middle evening observation indicate northwest winds 5-15 knots across 
the waters with seas 3 to 5 feet north of Ocracoke Inlet and 2-4 feet 
south. As high pressure becomes centered over the area overnight winds 
will continue to diminish to below 10 knots after midnight...then 
become southwesterly Saturday as the high moves offshore. The SW winds are 
expected to increase to 10-15 knots across the northern waters late 
Saturday as the gradient begins to tighten. Seas Sat will generally 
be 2-4 feet. 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 315 PM Friday...with high pressure moving offshore...a 
moderate southwest flow kicks in Saturday night into Monday with 
15 to 20 knot winds quite possible. With a back door front 
dropping across the region Monday night into Tuesday...a good 
surge of NE winds begins by late Monday night through Tuesday with 
25 to 30 knot winds possible. Seas likewise build to Small Craft Advisory criteria 
from north to south beginning late Monday night and continuing 
into Wednesday.
