NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
241 am EDT Monday Aug 31 2015 


Synopsis... 
an area of low pressure will approach from the southwest Monday 
and will pass off the coast Monday night. Weak high pressure will be 
over the southeast states from Wednesday into the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am this morning/... 
as of 1 am Monday...near term guidance still indicates increase rain chances 
from SW to NE rest of the overnight as middle level Omega increases. 
It will take several hours for lower levels to saturate so expect 
a gradual increase in rain. 


/Previous discussion/ 
as of 700 PM Sunday...updated to increase probability of precipitation to likely over southern 
sections late this evening...and SW half of area overnight. 
Adjusted sky cover to cloudy all areas rest of night. No changes 
to min temperatures at this time. 


Widespread showers in deep moisture axis ahead of short WV moving up from 
gulfmex continue to approach from S-SW. Dry low and middle levels are 
hindering precipitation development across eastern NC.....But majority of 
latest guidance supports some light quantitative precipitation forecast for most of SW half of area by 
morning. 


/Previous discussion/ 
as of 330 PM sun...moisture from the remnants of tropical system 
Erika will slowly overspread the area. Large rain shield with 
embedded thunder over southeast third of South Carolina and 
extending well offshore is slowly moving north. Hourly laps 
soundings show a rather large amount of dry air to overcome below 
700 mb. Believe it will take much of the evening to saturate this 
layer. Therefore I have kept chance probability of precipitation over the southern 
counties and slight chance much of the remainder. Lows range from 
upper 60s coastal plain to middle 70s Outer Banks. 


&& 


Short term /6 am this morning through 6 PM today/... 
as of 330 PM sun...forecast soundings show boundary layer will 
steadily become saturated through the day. First half of day has 
chance probability of precipitation south to slight chance north with chance probability of precipitation all 
areas in the afternoon. Instability indices marginal for thunder 
in the afternoon so limited mention to slight chance. Overcast 
skies and scattered convection will keep highs capped in the middle 
80s. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday through Sunday/... 
as of 240 am Monday...precipitation threat will be highest along the coast 
early Tuesday where axis of best precipitation water is located. Will also have 
some lift associated with dampening short wave crossing. Later Tuesday 
forcing will be offshore however with heating may see widely scattered to 
scattered convection fire in moist/weakly unstable airmass. 


Wednesday into the weekend...surface high pressure will remain in 
control middle to late week with very weak flow aloft. Typical summery 
pattern will be in place with the main mechanism for precipitation being 
sea breeze convergence for inland areas each afternoon...and have a 
general slight to low chance pop through this period. Small shower 
chances will transition to the coastal areas and mainly offshore 
waters each night...though most places will be dry through the 
period. Temperatures will be quite warm and muggy with highs 85-90 and lows 
70- 75...slightly above climatology for early September. 


&& 


Aviation /07z Monday through Friday/... 
short term /through 00z Monday/... 
as of 730 PM Sunday...high confidence of VFR conditions for the 
short term...then ceilings expected to lower to MVFR overnight with 
patchy light shower activty..and persist through Monday. Some MVFR 
visibilities likely as well 08z-12z. 


Long term /Tuesday through Friday/... 
as of 240 am Monday...a few periods of sub-VFR conditions will be 
possible early Tuesday associated with isolated shra/tsra. Pred VFR conditions 
to return later Tuesday through late week with hit or miss diurnal 
convection. Brief patchy fog/stratus possible each night/morning 
with light winds and moist bl. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /tonight and Mon/... 
as of 1000 PM Sunday...no changes to winds/seas. 


/Previous discussion/ 
as of 330 PM sun...low pressure...the remnants of tropical system 
Erika over the southeast Gulf of Mexico...presently in the 
southeast Gulf of Mexico will move into south Georgia Monday 
afternoon. Very loose pressure gradient over the waters with winds 
less than 10 knots in the short term. Seas will be 2-4 feet in 9 
second swell. 


Long term /Tuesday through Friday/... 
as of 240 am Monday...overall benign boating conditions expected 
across the waters through the period...with high pressure the main 
feature. Loose gradient will result in winds less than 15 kts. Direction 
tricky with models differing espcly GFS which show a better defined 
low off the coast Tuesday into Wednesday. Regardless of direction with light 
speeds seas shld be 1 to 3 feet through the period. 


&& 


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