Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Wilmington NC 347 PM EDT Thu Oct 21 2021

SYNOPSIS. High pressure continues to bring a dry forecast through tonight. A cold front moves through by Friday, but brings only a mild chance of rain, mostly centered on the Cape Fear region. High pressure returns, bringing a pleasant weekend. Forecast becomes more unsettled by the middle of next week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/. Latest sfc analysis shows high pressure centered off the SE coast with a cold front stretching down through the TN Valley. Both these features transition eastward over the Near Term period, with SW flow ahead of the front allowing for a mild night tonight and no fog . low temps in the low/mid 60s. Rain chances then ramp up a bit into the day Friday ahead of the front, as moisture increases below 700 mb along with some weak low-level WAA. In general forcing is weak however, and have continued to cap PoPs in the chance range over eastern areas, slight chance western areas. With precipitable water never exceeding 1.5", will limit rainfall to a tenth of an inch. Temps Friday still about five degrees above normal despite the cloud cover and spotty showers . highs in the low 80s. The cold front pushes offshore Friday night with any rain ending and winds shifting to the NW along with cooler temps . lows ranging through the 50s.

SHORT TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/. With surface high pressure overhead, expecting a pleasant weekend. High temperatures Saturday generally in the mid-to-upper 70s, just a degree or two above normal for mid-late October. Saturday night shaping up to be a good radiational cooling night, on account of the calm winds and clear skies, as the high is almost directly overhead. Lows dip down mostly into the lower 50s, though wouldn't be surprised if the cold spots drop down into the mid 40s.

Sunday will be a little warmer, with highs near 80. Could see a few more cumulus clouds, as opposed to the cloudless trend expected Saturday. Lows Sunday night in the mid 60s.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Expecting a warm day Monday, with the upper flow looking more zonal at this point, if not slightly gradient flow. More moisture comes in, bringing in a little more cloud cover and highs in the mid 80s.

Seeing a little more agreement in model guidance this time around, as a vertically stacked low from the Great Lakes region or Midwest starts moving eastward. The ECMWF still carries more continuity here, and leaning more towards that solution right now, with the upper low remaining more northward. With a more mature system, this would increase the rain chances for the area, but don't necessarily want to go there yet. Regardless, Tuesday and Wednesday look to have more unsettled weather, with a surface front in the area. Clouds and rain keep temperatures in the upper 70s. Keeping the rain chances on the modest side for now, given brief ridging aloft.

Thursday gets more complicated, as a broader, stronger trough sweeps into the Southeast. Details are really sketchy here, particularly with the GFS. However, think there's potential for this system to look better in the coming days. LLJ comes down, stirring up the bulk shear to 60kts. Previous forecast guidance didn't have much instability, but latest runs suggest more CAPE to work with. Guidance is a mess, but this could be one to watch.

AVIATION /18Z THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. VFR with nothing more than cirrus through early tonight. Moisture/cloud bases will lower later tonight ahead of a cold front but may be hard-pressed to have adequate coverage for becoming a ceiling. Any showers will similarly be too widespread to warrant being in TAFs at this time.

Extended Outlook . VFR, except for a low chance of ceiling or visibility restrictions in convective showers Friday into Friday night.

MARINE. Through Friday Night . SW flow of 10-20 kt continues tonight into Friday with sfc high pressure offshore and a cold front approaching from the west. The front drops into the waters late Friday night, with winds starting to veer to the NW late in this period. No headlines necessary. Seas consistently 2-3 ft through Friday, with some 4 footers expected Friday night especially over the NC coastal waters. A weak ESE swell will continue, but the growing SW wind wave will be the dominant feature.

Saturday through Tuesday . NNW flow expected Saturday, generally around 10kts. By Saturday night into Sunday, winds become more northeasterly, and then easterly by Sunday afternoon. Winds kick back around to the south by Monday, increasing to 10-15kts at times. Westerly flow digs in by Tuesday. Seas 1-2ft through the weekend into Monday, increasing to 2-3ft by Monday night into Tuesday, with a few 4ft waves possible out 20nm from shore.
