NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
444 am EDT Monday Jul 6 2015 


Synopsis... 
a weak front will remain north of the area today. High pressure 
offshore and an inland trough will persist through the entire 
week. A weak front may move into the area during the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
as of 440 am Monday...increased probability of precipitation across SW sections given radar 
trends. The front along the NC/Virginia border will slowly drift north 
today as the surface low and upper level trough lift north northeast. A 
shortwave will affect the area as the upper trough lifts north and 
will continue chance probability of precipitation across the entire area. Typical offshore 
high/inland trough surface pattern will prevail but upper low will 
continue moving to NE with more short WV energy affecting eastern NC 
today and will continue 30-50 probability of precipitation areawide. More cloud cover expected 
today with highs near 90 inland to middle-upper 80s coast. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through 6 am Tuesday/... 
as of 3 am Monday...convection should wane fairly quickly this 
evening with loss of daytime heating however will leave low probability of precipitation for the 
overnight period with a warm moist SW flow continuing across the area. 
Expect lows ranging from the lower 70s inland to the middle and upper 70s 
coast. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday through Sunday/... 
as of 330 am Monday...another hot and muggy week with limited 
convection until possibly the weekend. 


Tuesday/Tuesday night...upper level trough will lift out the area 
with upper heights rising and a normal diurnal convective pattern 
with low chance inland and slight chance coast. Temperatures rise 
to the lower 90s away from the coast with muggy middle 70s at night. 


Wednesday/Wednesday night...a weak trough will develop inland with 
upper level heights continue to slowly rise and once again any 
convection will be of the routine variety with 20-30 percent 
probabilities. 


Thursday/Thursday night...the upper level ridge continues to build 
over the region and this will likely be the driest day of the week 
with temperatures climbing into the middle 90s away from the 
immediate coast. 


Friday/Friday night..low-level westerly flow during the day Friday 
will lead to hot temperatures with highs inland reaching the middle 
to perhaps upper 90s. Again rain chances will be fairly normal for 
this time of year. By Friday night...upper heights begin to fall. 


Saturday/Saturday night...a backdoor cold front will drop into the 
region Saturday into Saturday night as upper heights lower with 
increased middle-level energy in the northwest flow aloft. This will 
lead to an increased chance of showers/thunderstorms. Outside rain 
areas...temperatures will remain quite warm...well into the 90s 
away from the coast. 


Sunday/Sunday night...the backdoor front should wash out by late 
Sunday with the pattern going back to a more typical Summer 
pattern with weak troughing inland and a diurnal threat of 
showers/thunderstorms. 


&& 


Aviation /09z Monday through Friday/... 
short term /through 06z Tuesday/... 
as of 440 am Monday...IFR to MVFR ceilings rptd at isolated and pgv early 
this morning will likely persist through about 12z. Continue scattered at or below 1k feet at 
oaj and ewn. MVFR fog also possible through 12z all taf sites as winds 
briefly decouple but confidence it low. Expect clouds to start 
building back into the area with scattered diurnal 
showers/thunderstorms and have indicated thunderstorms in the vicinity in tafs. A light 
S/SW flow will persist through the period. 


Long term /Tuesday through Saturday/... 
as of 340 am Monday...VFR conditions will prevail for much of the 
time...although an afternoon/evening shower or thunderstorm may 
briefly reduce conditions to sub-VFR. Patchy stratus/fog also 
possible each night/early morning...especially in areas that see 
heavier rainfall. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /today and tonight/... 
as of 440 am Monday...increased probability of precipitation SW coastal areas. Latest 
buoy observation are showing winds from the south and southwest at 10-20 
kts and seas 2-4 feet. Typical offshore high/inland trough pattern 
will prevail today and tonight with SW winds 10-20 knots and seas 2-4 
feet. 


Long term /Tuesday through Saturday/... 
as of 340 am Monday...a fairly steady state marine forecast for 
the extended period with the Bermuda ridge holding firm offshore 
and weak troughing over inland areas. Expect southwest winds 
generally 10 to 15 knots with seas 2 to 4 feet throughout the 
period. 


&&
