area forecast discussion
national weather service raleigh nc
405 pm edt Sun may 26 2019

Synopsis
A strong ridge of high pressure aloft will persist over the
southeastern u.S. Through Wednesday, producing above normal
temperatures and generally dry weather.

Near term through tonight
As of 335 pm Sunday...

early summer heat wave in full swing as temperatures in the mid-
upper 90s being reported across parts of central nc, with record
highs likely tied and or exceeded at raleigh and fayetteville. Drier
air aloft has mixed to the surface, lowering dewpoints into the 60-
65 degree range across the piedmont.

Upstream across the lower oh valley, a cluster of showers and storms
was organizing and moving eastward. The near term model guidance
takes this cluster across WV and into eastern virginia by early-mid
evening. Outflow from this convective cluster may initiate a storm
or two in vicinity of the nc va border late this evening. Elsewhere,
the atmosphere appears too dry and too capped to permit sustain
convective development. Otherwise expect warm and muggy conditions
overnight. Lows tonight will generally be in the upper 60s to around
70.

Short term Monday through Monday night
As of 405 pm Sunday...

a convectively induced vort maximum over va later tonight will
propel a weak sfc trough through central nc Monday morning. The
veering of the winds to a NW direction will main a dry atmosphere.

While strong heating will result in a slightly unstable air mass,
warm air aloft will cap the atmosphere and inhibit convective
development. The exception will be an minimal threat for a storm
near the va border late Monday-Monday evening. The atmosphere
appears just as warm and dry Tuesday, so convective chances appear
minimal once again. Low level thicknesses get as high as 1435-1440m
each afternoon with the ECMWF topping out around 1448m Tuesday.

These values suggest afternoon temperatures solidly in the 90s,
possibly reaching 100 degrees over parts of the sandhills.

Long term Wednesday through Sunday
As of 138 pm Sunday...

hot weather is expected through the extended forecast period.

Current high (95-100) and low (70-77) temperature forecasts for
Wednesday Wednesday night would tie or break the record warmest at
all 3 climate sites across central nc. Temperatures will remain well
above normal through the rest of the period, decreasing from
Wednesday onward. Normals highs are 81-86 and normal lows are 60-64.

The overnight lows will not provide much of a relief from the
persistent heat. Thankfully, the min rh values will be fairly low,
helping to keep heat indices near the air temperature.

The center of the high aloft will be over florida on Wednesday as
the sub-tropical ridge extends into the southeast and mid-atlantic
regions. As a low pressure system approaches from the west it will
push the ridge to the southeast on Thursday. The aforementioned low
will become absorbed into the larger scale northern stream trough as
it progresses eastward. Differences in the medium-range model
solutions leave some question as to the potential for precipitation
over central nc Friday through Sunday. There will be at least a
slight chance, but specifics will depend on the evolution absorption
of the shortwave as it moves east. The piedmont trough will likely
be a daily feature over the region through the period, which could
provide a bit of forcing for showers to get going should the correct
ingredients exist.

Aviation 18z Sunday through Friday
As of 155 pm Sunday...

there is a high likelihood thatVFR conditions will prevail across
central nc through 18z Monday as an area of high pressure aloft
maintains its influence over our part of the country. A cluster of
showers and t-storms and associated MVFR conditions are expected to
remain north pf krdu and krwi late this evening. Isolated convection
is possible late Monday afternoon-Monday evening, though the
probability of occurrence at any particular TAF site is too remote
to include in the forecast at this time. Sfc winds this afternoon
will be wly at less than 10kts. Sfc winds Monday will average 7-
11kts with gusts 15-18kts.

Aside from pockets of early morning fog low clouds and associated
MVFR ifr visibilities Wednesday morning and again Thursday morning,
it appears thatVFR parameters will be common at the TAF sites
through Thursday. The probability for subVFR parameters will
increase Friday as the area of high pressure aloft weakens and an
area of low pressure approaches from the west.

Climate
Forecast highs over the next couple of days will be well above
average. Here are the forecast high temperatures and associated
daily records with the year:
