Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 658 PM EST Sun Jan 16 2022

SYNOPSIS. A strong low pressure system will continue to impact the area tonight and into tomorrow, bringing multiple hazards. High pressure will build over the area through mid week, with a cold front moving through Thursday. A coastal trough or coastal storm may impact Eastern NC by week's end.

NEAR TERM /TONIGHT/. As of 7 PM Sun . Latest sfc analysis shows 996mb low lifting into NE NC and towards SE VA this evening, which will continue to lift into the Mid-Atlantic states overnight. Squall line with gusty winds and heavy rain continues to lift NE along the coast this evening along the warm front. A small svr threat remains for another hour or two with potential for damaging wind gusts and an isolated tornado. Limited instability will keep the severe threat pinned towards the coast though given the strong dynamics present strong and potentially damaging winds gusts could mix down almost anywhere. Winds beginning to shift to the SW behind the warm front and squall line. Behind the line winds will briefly subside, however this will not last long and winds will restrengthen and shift to the southwest as low pressure moves north of the area. High Wind Warnings are in effect for the Outer Banks and Downeast Carteret, as well as Wind Advisories for the Inner Banks and Crystal Coast.

We have received several coastal flooding reports, with the strong SE flow. Please see the Coastal Flooding section below for details.

A final note on the overnight forecast is that an additional period of light rain is expected to develop in the southwesterly flow behind this system with the best chances for rain along the coast. Also temperatures will plummet overnight from mild readings in the 50s and 60s this evening, to the low to mid 30s by daybreak Monday.

SHORT TERM /MONDAY/. As of 220 PM Sun . Strong gradient flow continues Monday as high pressure moves in behind the strong low pressure system. CAA won't be too extreme with winds remaining westerly, so expect high temps to generally reach the upper 40s to low 50s.

LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/. As of 230 PM Sun . High pressure returns Tuesday and Wednesday. Another cold front will pass through on Thursday, with low pressure developing behind it with a threat for wintry weather by week's end.

Monday Night through Wednesday . High pressure continues to build in from the west Tuesday, with temps remaining below normal with highs mostly in the 40s Tue and lows in the upper 20s interior to 30s coast. Return flow develops Wed as sfc high shifts offshore and hts/thicknesses rise, leading to temps above climo with highs 55 to 60.

Thursday . A cold front will approach from the west Wed and night and cross the region Thurs. This will bring a good chance of rain with it, though some minor timing difference remain with 16/00Z model suite, and retained pops in the high chc range.

Friday through Sunday . The front hangs up just off the NC/SC coast, oriented SW to NE, with potential for shortwave troughing or even a more well developed coastal low to impact ENC as early as Thur night as an active southern stream jet looks to be in place. Timing of shortwave aloft and location of moisture axis remain the determining factors for sensible wx at this time, though model ensemble means are in general favorable agreement that frozen or freezing precipitation may become an issue, esp inland, during this time period. Less certainty east of the Coastal Plain, and have advertised a ra/sn mix. Along the immediate coast (eastern Carteret through the OBX), sided with climo and kept p-type rain. Temps will be below climo with hts/thicknesses quite low.

AVIATION /23Z SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. SHORT TERM /through Monday/ . As of 7 PM Sun . Mix of LIFR and VFR early this evening, with heavy rain beginning to push east of the sites. Conditions should briefly come up to VFR between 00-02z, but then MVFR ceilings are expected to re-develop between 4-6z as low level moisture returns on the backside of the low pressure system. All sites could see brief period of IFR cigs between 6-9z. VFR conditions are expected to return by mid morning Monday. SW wind gusts 20-30 kt tonight, becoming more WSW Mon.

LONG TERM /Monday Night through Friday/ . As of 230 PM Sun . VFR conditions persist Monday night through Wednesday as high pressure builds in from the west. A cold front will move through Thu with the next potential for sub-VFR conditions.

MARINE. SHORT TERM /through Monday/ . As of 7 PM Sun . Dangerous marine conditions will continue into Monday as deepening low pressure passes to the northwest of the waters. Storm and Gale Warnings remain posted for the waters through tonight. Latest obs show SE winds 25-40 kt, with gusts 40-50 kt across the outer waters, with seas 10-18 ft. Late this evening winds will briefly subside to 20-30 kts, but will quickly re-strengthen to 30-45 kts out of the SW behind the low pressure system. Winds then slowly decrease early tomorrow morning becoming W 25-35 kts by the afternoon. As winds continue to increase seas will build to 15-20 ft early tonight, subsiding just slightly overnight. Seas tomorrow then continue to come down, but will still be 10-15 ft most of the day.

LONG TERM /Monday Night through Friday/ . As of 240 PM Sun . Ongoing gales are expected to continue Mon evening, with seas remaining elevated. The seas will slowly subside through Tue as high pres builds into the ENC waters. Return swrly flow develops by mid week with some marginal SCA conditions possible across warmer ctrl/srn Gulf Stream waters. Cold front moves through on Thu with strong nrly winds in the SCA range developing all waters and sounds by late in the day.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. As of 345 PM Sun . Coastal Flood Warnings remain in effect for the Outer Banks as well as Beaufort and Mainland Hyde counties where inundation of 2-4 ft AGL is expected. Water levels will continue to rise across Beaufort and Mainland Hyde counties this afternoon into tonight with the strong SEly flow, and then as winds shift to the west-southwest early Monday morning rapid water level rises are expected across the Outer Banks soundside from Buxton north towards Duck including Roanoke Island.

There is also the potential for significant ocean overwash across Hatteras and Ocracoke Islands as waves increase to 10-15 ft and water levels increase due to strong SEly winds today. This has the potential to breach dunes and impact travel along NC 12.

Elsewhere Coastal Flood Advisories continue for Onslow, Carteret, southern Craven, Pamlico, and Mainland Dare counties where inundation of 1-2 ft AGL is expected. Water levels in these areas will peak with the Sely flow late today. Some minor to potentially moderate beach erosion will be possible for beaches from North Topsail to Fort Macon. There is the potential for moderate to significant beach erosion or even dune breaches across Core Banks and up towards Portsmouth Island.
