Synopsis
Heat will return once again, as an upper ridge amplifies from
the south. Isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible from
time to time, but overall, expect hot and dry weather through
at least mid-week.

Near term through Monday
As of 315 am Sunday... The heat switch getting flicked to the
'on' position today, in wake of perturbations marching seaward
off nc early this morning. A 'snap-back' upper ridge, coupled
with compressed air parcels in trajectories off the mountains,
and near full Sun wattage, all leads to a broiling afternoon
with near, to record heat.

A few current standings for the date: ilm 98 in 1953, flo 102 in
1953, and lbt 101 in 1926. Ilm most at risk of being replaced.

Although subsidence aloft and drying should suppress convection, the
intense heat and associated convergence of a confined sea breeze
front, could lead to a brief pop up shra TSTM (low-topped) into the
afternoon heating, favored just inland of the coast. Monday,
memorial day, very hot again. Short-wave energy could bring an
isolated TSTM over SE nc Monday night from wnw to ese late.

Short term Monday night through Tuesday night
As of 315 am Sunday... The short term as well as the long term
sounds like a broken record literally and figuratively as the
pattern is changing little. Massive high pressure still
dominated the weather and record highs will most likely continue
to be broken. All but zero pops in the forecast with highs well
into the 90s and uncomfortable lows although the oppressive
dewpoints have yet to arrive so the overnight periods will be
more tolerable.

Long term Wednesday through Saturday
As of 315 am Sunday... Some hope for a methodical breakdown of
the massive ridge through the period as western CONUS energy
begins to make its move albeit in a piecework fashion. The
latest official forecast reflates this with a gradual increase
in pops although trending slowly up. Temperatures remain
oppressive but may step back later N the week per the increase
cloud cover and moisture.

Aviation 07z Sunday through Thursday
As of 5z... GOES 'nighttime microphysics' channel depicting
clearly the onshore impingement of tropically derived moisture,
which was resulting in smatterings of MVFR ifr ceilings this
morning. 20-25 kt wind above the boundary layer was keeping fog
at bay this morning, but 9-12z may see patches inland as wind-
speeds lessen.

Convection over central nc to be watched for possible vcts or
vcsh amendment inclusion from klbt to keyf to kilm 8-10z.

Extended outlook... MainlyVFR into next week. Slight chance
MVFR each morning in low stratus fog, or isolated tstms.

Marine
As of 315 am Sunday... Se waves of 2-3 feet every 5-6 seconds
will be gradually replaced by ssw-sw waves 2 feet every 4-5
seconds, in response to the veering surface wind field today.

Weak ene swell every 11-12 seconds from a departing and distant
ocean low will hardy be noticeable beneath the chopped wind-
seas. No advisories, an isolated TSTM possible late Monday night
nc waters. SW winds the rule this period, backing slightly in
the afternoon inshore, and gustier.

Although there are subtle changes on the overall pattern mainly
as the ridge breaks down and more of a westerly flow develops,
winds and seas will remain very stable across the coastal
waters. Expect mostly south to southwest of 10-15 knots and
significant seas of 2-4 feet.

Ilm watches warnings advisories
Sc... None.

Nc... None.

Marine... None.
