Marine Weather Discussion for N Atlantic Ocean
NWS Ocean Prediction Center Washington DC
921 AM EDT Sat May 26 2018

.FORECAST DISCUSSION...Major features/winds/seas/significant 
.weather for the North Atlantic Ocean W of 50W from 30N to 50N.

No significant changes expected in the forecast at this time, as
latest model guidance in good agreement with current forecast
trends.

SEAS...Wave guidance within a foot or two of current
observations. No changes to the wave grids anticipated at this
time.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
PREVIOUS DISCUSSION...

Current Conditions...The 00z ncep surface analysis shows a 1000 
mb low centered over NW Maine, with an associated low pressure 
trough extending S to SW across the New England states and over 
the southern Maine coastal waters. The analysis also indicates a 
high pressure ridge across the nt2 waters. Latest available 
ascat and ascat hi-res passes from a few hours ago suggest 15 to
25 kt winds in SW flow over the nt1 area, and 5 to 15 kt winds 
across the nt2 waters. 

Models/Forecast...The 00z medium range models are in good 
agreement across the offshore waters for today through Sun, so 
the representative 00z gfs 10m solution will be used for the 
wind grids during this timeframe. Will switch to using the 00z 
ecmwf for Sun night through the rest of the forecast period, 
since the 00z ecmwf has good overall support from the 00z 
cmc/ukmet, while the 00z gfs looks too fast. Confidence in the 
forecast is considered to be average at this time, since the
models are still in two camps regarding whether or not there 
will be a low crossing the central nt2 waters on Tue and Tue 
night.

Seas...The 00z wna wavewatch and 00z ecmwf wam both initialized 
well over the coastal and offshore waters versus the latest buoy 
observations and altimeter data. The models are in close
agreement through Sun, but for consistency purposes the 00z wna
wavewatch will be used for the sea height grids for today through
Sun, then will go with the 00z ecmwf wam for Sun night through 
the rest of the forecast period, in order to be consistent with 
the preferred 00z ecmwf wind grids.

Extratropical Storm Surge Guidance...N/A.


.WARNINGS...Preliminary.

.NT1 New England Waters...
     None.

.NT2 Mid-Atlantic Waters...
     None.
