area forecast discussion
national weather service newport morehead city nc
806 pm edt Fri may 24 2019

Synopsis
A cold front will continue to progress through the area
overnight, with high pressure building back in tomorrow.

Another backdoor front will move into the region Monday, but
then will quickly retreat north Tuesday, with very hot
temperatures expected across the region through at least the
middle of next week. A cold front is expected to move into the
area Friday.

Near term until 6 am Saturday morning
As of 8 pm fri... A few showers late in the afternoon and early
evening along the hybrid cold front sea breeze that is
progressing eastward across the area has prompted the expansion
of the slight chance for showers storms through the evening
along the progression of the boundary. Otherwise the previous
forecast remains on track with only adjustments to hours
temps dew point and wind to reflect the progression of the front
based on latest hi-res guidance.

Tonight winds will continue to be out of the E ne, but should
become light inland. Expect dry conditions to continue and temps
should drop into the mid to upper 70s across the northern tier,
and upper 60s to low 70s across the southern coast.

Short term 6 am Saturday morning through 6 pm Saturday
As of 310 pm fri... High pressure will move off the mid-atlantic
coast tomorrow and reinforce easterly winds across the area,
until late in the afternoon when the high moves far enough
offshore for winds to turn to the se. Low level thicknesses will
be slightly lower than today, resulting in highs climbing into the
low 90s inland, and then with easterly onshore flow most of the
day, temps will only reach the upper 70s to low 80s across the
obx and mainland hyde and dare counties.

Long term Saturday night through Friday
As of 215 pm Friday... An anomalous upper ridge will linger
across the southeastern quarter of the united states for the
next several days. This will produce well above normal
temperatures into the middle of next week with high
temperatures well into the 90s inland with a few spots poss reaching
100 degrees Tue thru thu. Beaches as usual will be a bit cooler
with flow off ocean sounds but shld climb well into the 80s.

Heat index values thru Thu will be mainly 95 to 100 but could
reach 100 to 105 a few sites Tuesday through Thursday. As the
upper ridge begins to break down late in the week a cold front
will drop into the area Fri with temps cooling a bit with
warmest sites 90 to 95.

Models show weak impulse moving thru Sat night early Sunday and
some show light precip poss... For now wl keep dry but cont to
monitor. Otherwise differential heating boundaries in the
afternoon and evening could produce an isolated shower or storm
most any day, the coverage of any precipitation is very low and
have left out of the forecast through thu. As the upr ridge
begins to break down with cold front moving in did add a 20 pop
for fri.

Aviation 00z Saturday through Wednesday
Short term through Saturday afternoon ...

as of 7 pm fri...VFR conditions are will continue through the
period. A cold front progressing through the area is bringing a
wind shift from northwest to northeast, but winds will remain
light so the shift will have minimal impact. SomeVFR stratus
could develop overnight along and north of the cold front, with
any stratus that does develop dissipating later Saturday
morning. Winds remain mainly light while becoming more
southerly through the day Saturday.

Long term Saturday night through Wednesday ...

as of 220 pm Friday...VFR conditions are likely throughout the
extended period. Cannot rule out patchy shallow fog or stratus
early in the morning each day, but the extent should be short
and limited.

Marine
Short term tonight and Sat ...

as of 8 pm fri... A cold front crossing the waters has crossed
most of the marine area north of CAPE lookout, and will progress
thorough the rest of the waters through the rest of the evening.

Wind will shift northeast behind the boundary, and gusts of 20
to 25 kt are possible behind it, but coverage and duration are
too low to justify an sca. Seas will remain around 2 to 3 ft
overnight.

Winds tomorrow will be mostly E NE around 10-15 kts, and then
turn to the SE late in the day. Seas are currently 2-3 ft, and
are expected to remain 2-3 ft through tomorrow.

Long term Saturday night through Wed ...

as of 220 pm Friday... Front lifts back N Sat night with winds
veering from SE 10 to 15 kts in evening to ssw late. SW winds
will increase 15 to 20 kts later Sun and Sun night as another
front approaches from the nw. This front expected to cross nrn
half of area Mon and Mon night with light N to E winds expected
behind front and SE to S winds ahead of front SRN tier. The
front will lift back N Tue with winds becoming ssw 10 to 20 kts
all wtrs. Ssw winds cont Wed with offshore high pres dominating
speeds 10 to 15 kts early with some 15 to 20 kts likely late.

Seas will be mainly in the 2 to 4 foot range thru the period.

Could see some 5 footers outer wtrs at times when winds peak
espcly later Sun into early mon.

Climate
Record or near record warmth is expected late this week into
early next week.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
