Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

area forecast discussion
national weather service newport morehead city nc
111 am edt Tue jul 17 2018

Synopsis
High pressure will remain offshore through Tuesday. A cold
front will move in from the northwest Tuesday night and push
through the region Wednesday. The front will remain stalled
south of the area through late week, then lift back north this
weekend.

Near term rest of tonight
As of 111 am tue... Have delayed onset of shra TS until around
09-11z, when area of convection across NE sc may impact our srn
zones. A few showers and perhaps an iso storm still possible
across the obx rest of tonight, in association with weak low
moving up along the nc coast.

Previous discussion... As of 1025 pm Monday... No changes for
late evening update. Showers isolated TSTM south of hat are
associated with weak low to mid level low and may impact outer
banks overnight with additional activity possible for south
coast near morning.

Previous discussion
as of 3 pm mon... Latest analysis shows weak low and coastal
trough off the nc sc coast this afternoon, with high pressure
anchored offshore. Low trough will weaken this evening. Latest
radar imagery shows some isolated showers developing along hwy
17 this afternoon, with more scattered convection over the
central part of the state. Still looks like best chances for
isolated showers will be across the eastern forecast area this
evening and evening. Though could see an isolated shower or
storm drift into the coastal plain. Models show this activity
dissipating and radar trends seem to match that well. Expect to
see increasing convection moving off the waters early Tuesday
morning. Temps will be a bit warmer tonight and moisture
increases across the area. Otherwise, warm and muggy with lows
in the 70s under partly to mostly cloudy skies.

Short term Tuesday
As of 3 pm mon... A broad upper trough, shortwave energy and sfc
cold front will approach the area Tuesday. Scattered to
numerous showers and storms are expected Tue and Tue night. Best
chances along the coast during the first part of the day with
convection moving off the water, then coverage likely
transitioning inland during the afternoon hours. Forecast
soundings show MUCAPE values increasing to 2500-3000 j kg and
bulk shear 10-20 kt. Some stronger storms will be possible in
the afternoon and evening hours, but at this time it looks like
the main threat will heavy rain with the potential for minor
flooding. Wpc has the area outlooked in a slight risk to
marginal risk of excessive rainfall. Expect pwat values 2-2.3
inches. Low level thickness values, cloudy skies and SW flow
support highs 85-90 degrees.

Long term Tuesday night through Monday
As of 330 am Monday...

Tuesday night through Wednesday... A broad trough aloft will
move through the area, while a cold front approaches the region
from the northwest Tuesday night. As the cold front moves closer
to eastern nc, showers and thunderstorms will become widespread
and heavy Tuesday night into Wednesday. Models are suggesting
the front will stall over the southern portions of our forecast
area on Wednesday. It will depend how far south will the front
stall and how much dry air advects in behind the cold front,
will depend if there is the potential for additional strong to
severe storms. Overall, expect additional showers and
thunderstorms Wednesday with heavy rainfall which can lead to
localized flooding. Expect highs in the upper 80s inland and
low mid 80s along the coast. Overnight lows are expected to be
in the low to mid 70s.

Wednesday night through weekend... Showers and thunderstorms are
expected to diminish Wednesday night as drier air advects in as high
pressure build in from the north, but some shower activity may
linger near the stall frontal boundary on Thursday. Models have the
stalled front to our south lifting north on Friday with a low
developing along the boundary this weekend. Meanwhile, a significant
shortwave trough along the northern stream deepens over the great
lakes midwest with a sfc low developing. At this time confidence is
low how the two lows will interact impact our area. Overall, expect
showers and thunderstorms Friday through the weekend. Expect highs
in the upper 80s inland and low mid 80s along the coast with
overnight lows in the low 70s inland and mid 70s along the coast.

Aviation 05z Tuesday through Saturday
Short term through 00z Wednesday ...

as of 111 am tue...VFR expected to prevail all sites through
overnight hours with isolated showers remaining to east.

Approaching shortwave will produce scattered TSTM threat by
mid morning with increasing through through afternoon. Enough
support to indicate vcts with poss MVFR CIGS at times.

Long term Tuesday night through Saturday ...

as of 345 am Monday... Sub-VFR with possible ifr conditions as
scattered to widespread showers and thunderstorms move through
the area ahead of the approaching cold front Tuesday night and
Wednesday.VFR conditions returns Thursday into Friday.

Marine
Short term through Tuesday ...

as of 1030 pm Monday... No changes to winds seas with update.

Previous discussion

with some gusts closer to 15 kt across the outer central waters,
with seas 2-3 ft. Southerly winds increase to 10-15 kt tonight
with seas building to 2-4 ft. The gradient tightens Tuesday
ahead of an approaching cold front, with ssw SW winds increasing
to 15-25 kt and seas building to 4-7 ft. SCA continues for the
waters south of oregon inlet Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday

northern waters Tue afternoon.
