NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
1250 am EDT sun Oct 26 2014 


Synopsis... 
a dry cold front will move across the area late tonight. High 
pressure will build over the area Sunday and then extend over the 
area through middle week. A stronger cold front will approach the area 
late Wednesday and move through on Thursday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Sunday morning/... 
as of 1245 am Sunday...no changes with update. 


/Previous discussion/ 
as of 950 PM Saturday...no changes to previous thinking. High 
pressure to the west continues to produce clear skies and very 
pleasant weather across the region and will briefly give way to a 
dry cold front approaching from the west late. Winds have briefly 
decoupled inland this evening but an increasing pressure gradient 
late should lead to a light breeze developing which will result in 
slightly warmer min temperatures than last night with readings in the 
middle to upper 40s inland and middle 50s beaches. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Sunday morning through 6 PM Sunday/... 
as of 305 PM Saturday...while the actual cold front passes through 
early in the day on Sunday...the dewpoint front will likely take 
several more hours to arrive in the area. Expect breezy northwest winds 
to follow in the wake of the front. However...given minimal cloud 
cover and a downsloping flow...high temperatures will still climb 
well into the 70s across the area for Sunday. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Saturday/... 
as of 136 PM Sat...middle level ridge will build over the area through 
the first half of the week. A weak surface boundary will move 
through eastern North Carolina Sunday night. Lack of moisture and no 
forcing will keep the area dry. Surface high pressure axis will move 
offshore Monday night. Southwesterly flow behind the high pressure 
will allow afternoon temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday to climb 
into the upper 70s. Middle level flow will turn to southwest on 
Wednesday as as a system digs into the plains states. Frontal 
passage across eastern North Carolina will be Wednesday night. Some 
disagreement on how wet this system will be. Time height cross 
section showing some moisture available so last half of week will 
see some precipitation. Low pressure will form on front by the end 
of the week so will have some lingering probability of precipitation into the Friday night. 


&& 


Aviation /02z Sunday through Thursday/... 
short term /through Sunday/... 
as of 635 PM Saturday...high confidence in VFR conditions through 
the taf period as high pressure continues to build over the area. 
The pressure gradient is expected to tighten tonight as a cold 
front approaches from the north...with only partial decoupling. 
Thus not forecasting any fog overnight. Patchy middle clouds 
associated with an approaching dry cold front will pass through 
the area late tonight and early Sunday. Following the frontal 
passage early Sunday winds will shift to the northwest and gust to 
20 knots at times. 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/ 
as of 138 PM Sat...VFR expected through much of the period. Will 
have a front approach the area near the end of the period. MVFR 
conditions possible with some precipitation as early as Wednesday 
night associated with this system. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /tonight and sun/... 
as of 1230 am Sunday...no changes with update. 


/Previous discussion/ 
as of 950 PM Saturday...west-southwest flow 10 to 15 knots this 
evening is forecast to become westerly and increase to 15 to 20 knots 
after midnight as a dry cold front approaches the waters. Winds 
will veer to the northwest at 15 to 20 knots Sunday as the front 
crosses the waters. Winds are then forecast to subside Sunday 
afternoon. Per latest nwps/Swan local wave model...2 to 3 feet seas 
this evening will build to 3 to 5 feet late tonight through Sunday 
morning especially over the central and northern waters. 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/ 
as of 217 PM Sat...high pressure over the area will start the 
forecast period with northwesterly flow over the North Carolina 
coastal waters. Gradient between this high pressure and low pressure 
well to the northeast will keep winds around 15 knots over the 
waters into Monday afternoon. High pressure axis will move across 
the waters Monday evening allowing the surface flow to become 
southwesterly and light. Gradient will start to tighten again on 
Wednesday as next system approaches the area increasing 
southwesterly flow to 10 to 15 knots ahead of the front. Front will 
cross the waters Wednesday night with northwesterly flow behind the 
front becoming northeasterly Thursday. Speeds will be 10 to 15 knots 
behind the front.
