MARINE WEATHER DISCUSSION FOR N ATLANTIC OCEAN
NWS OCEAN PREDICTION CENTER WASHINGTON DC
342 PM EDT FRI MAY 27 2016

.FORECAST DISCUSSION: MAJOR FEATURES/WINDS/SEAS/SIGNIFICANT
.WEATHER FOR THE NORTH ATLANTIC OCEAN W OF 50W FROM 30N TO 50N.

THE OVERALL PATTERN ACROSS THE WRN ATLANIC WILL REMAIN FAIRLY WEAK
ACROSS MUCH OF THE WATERS OVR THE NEXT FEW DAYS. THE EXCEPTION
WILL BE THE FAR SRN WATERS WHICH WILL COME UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF
A LOW CENTER WHICH WILL TRACK NE TOWARDS THE SE CST THIS WEEKEND.
AFTER COORDINATING WITH TAFB IS LIKLY THAT NHC WILL START A
TROPICAL SYSTEM IN THE SW ATLANTIC VERY SOON. IT IS LIKELY THAT
PRODUCTS COULD BE DELAYED AS A RESULT...MAINLY THE MID ATLANTIC
WATERS. WILL PRIMARILY MAINTAIN THE SAME GRIDS AS THIS MORNING
ACROSS THE WATERS...WITH ADJUSTMENTS AS NEEDED FOR THE LOW CENTER.
THE 12Z GLOBAL MODELS ARE ALL IN PRETTY GOOD AGREEMENT OVR NEXT
SEVERAL DAYS AS MUCH OF THE REGION REMAINS UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF
A RIDGE AXIS. EXPECT THE LOW CENTER...OR REMANTS...TO MOVE N
AROUND THE PERIPHERY OF THE RIDGE DURING THE UPCOMING WEEK. THE
MODELS DO DIFFER SOMEWHAT WITH THE SPEED OF THE LOW CENTER AS IT
APPROACHES THE CST...THE GFS IS THE FASTEST SOLN...WHILE THE
ECMWF IS SOMEWHAT SLOWER.

SEAS...BOTH THE WNA AND WAM INITIALIZED WELL ACROSS THE WATERS.
WILL PRIMARILY KEEP THE EARLIER GRIDS AND MAKE NEEDED ADJUSTMENTS
ASSOCIATED WITH THE LOW CENTER.

.EXTRATROPICAL STORM SURGE GUIDANCE...THE 12Z MODELS SHOW A
SLIGHTLY NEGATIVE SURGE MOVING INTO THE SC COAST SAT INTO SUN...AS
THE AFOREMENTIONED LOW MOVING IN FROM THE SE STARTS TO MOVE TO THE
COAST.

.WARNINGS...PRELIMINARY.

.NT1 NEW ENGLAND WATERS...
     NONE.

.NT2 MID ATLC WATERS...
.ANZ835...INNER WATERS FROM CAPE FEAR TO 31N...
     GALE SAT INTO SAT NIGHT.
