NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
1000 PM EDT Sat Aug 30 2014 


Synopsis... 
offshore high pressure will dominate over the weekend into early 
next week. A cold front will approach from the north middle to late 
next week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 10 PM...expect pc to mclr skies overnight with offshore high 
pressure producing light srly flow. Muggy lows mainly in the low to middle 
70s...with some upper 70s beaches. With light winds and high dewpoints 
expect will see some patchy fog late inland. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday/... 
as of 2 PM...upper ridge remains across the area with the Bermuda high 
ridging in at the surface with a warm and moist S-SW low level flow. 
Convection will be limited with the upper high in place but may see 
some isolated convection during the afternoon across inland areas with the 
seabreeze being the main focusing mech. Temperatures continue warm near 90 
inland and middle 80s on the coast. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Friday/... 
as of 215 PM Sat...the dominating upper level ridge will weaken as 
the Bermuda high continues to bring moist southerly flow and the 
Piedmont trough builds inland through middle week. This typical summertime 
pattern and increasing precipitable water values around 2 
inches... will allow for afternoon/evening convection. Most of the 
convection will mainly be along the sea breeze and Piedmont trough 
as these features will be the driving force. Have continued with 
30/40 probability of precipitation for each afternoon/evening. By middle to late 
week...models have a tail end a cold front to pass through the 
northern part of the coverage area. Expecting little change to 
temperatures and dew pt with this frontal boundary. By Friday...the 
upper level ridge will strength once again. 


Low level thickness support...high temperature to be near to above normal 
through the period. Expect...highs in the middle 80s to low 90s and 
lows in the 70s. 


&& 


Aviation /22z tonight through Thursday/... 
short term /tonight through Sunday/... 
as of 550 PM...majority of time will be VFR with pc to mclr skies 
through Sunday. Once again tough call on covering and poss visibilities 
restrictions in fog late. Forecast soundings look slightly more favorable 
then last night however sref/narre probs not showing much. For now 
will just show some MVFR late. 


Long term /Sunday night through Thu/... 
as of 215 PM Sat...mainly VFR conditions will dominate under a 
persist high pressure. Isolated to scattered afternoon/evening 
convection this week with the potential for fog development in the 
late night/early morning hours. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /tonight through Sunday/... 
as of 10 PM...no changes overnight with light south-southeast winds becoming south-southwest 
and seas continue in the 2 to 3 foot range. 


Previous disc...winds veer S/SW tonight 10 knots and increase to 10-15 knots 
on Sunday as surface high pressure moves offshore. Seas will range 2 to 
4 feet through Sunday...highest outer central waters. 


Long term /Sun night through Thu/... 
as of 215 PM Sat...main feature is the Bermuda high dominating the 
coastal waters through the period. Winds will be S/SW 5 to 15 kts 
with seas 2 to 4 feet. 


&& 


Mhx watches/warnings/advisories... 
NC...none. 
Marine...none.
