Synopsis
Lingering showers ahead of a cold front, will push farther
offshore as dry high pressure builds down from the north this
afternoon into Tuesday. Rain chances will increase late Tuesday
into Wednesday as a warm front lifts north. Cooler and drier
air is expected Thursday into next weekend.

Near term through Tuesday
Broken line of convection marching seaward will take axis of highest
rain-rates offshore before daybreak, with lingering lighter showers
into daybreak. Sharp drying today, with weak downslope wind flow and
periods of Sun in afternoon, should boost max-t values in the 80s
today prior to lagging cool air advection. Dewpoints steadily fall
deep into the 50s overnight to early Tuesday, with min-t noticeably
cooler.

Tuesday a dry start, will see a veil of clouds increasing across the
sky, as a moisture loaded warm front begins to take shape and lift
north. By late in the day Tuesday, a chance of rain spreading across
ne sc. Because of the cool start Tuesday, followed by an infusion of
thickening clouds, maximums were held below 80 degrees. Any changes
in sky-cover timing may require temperature adjustments.

Short term Tuesday night through Wednesday night
Rain will spread northward across the area tues eve as warm
front lifts north across the carolinas. Wave of low pressure
will develop with plenty of deep layer moisture and lift. A the
same time, shortwave digging down from the great lakes will be
pushing a cold front eastward. This push eastward may drive the
axis of greatest moisture to the east and keep the greatest qpf
along and off the coast, which the GFS and ECMWF are hinting at.

The nam, on the other hand, shows potential for heavier and more
widespread rain across the area with up to 1 to 2 inches of
rainfall possible. Plenty of WAA and cloud cover will keep
temps tues night on the warm side while keeping Wed temps down
with about a 10 degree diurnal spread, but Wed night, temps will
drop in drier and cooler air mass as high pressure builds in
behind exiting system.

Long term Thursday through Sunday
Very dry and much cooler air mass will settle across the
carolinas on thurs as high pressure builds in from the north.

Deep w-nw flow will bring pcp water values down less than a half
inch. Latest guidance shows dewpoints in the 40s and possibly
below 40 by fri. CAA will initially bring temps down into the
50s early thurs with temps remaining below 70 most places on
thurs and fri. As high migrates eastward, better radiational
cooling will allow overnight lows to drop out into the 40s thurs
night and into next weekend. Overall, a much cooler and very dry
air mass will be in place through the end of the week with temps
below normal. Expect plenty sunshine thurs through much of the
weekend. As high pressure shifts off the coast Sat night into
Sunday, air mass will modify with warming, but any pcp should
hold off until mon.

Aviation 12z Monday through Friday
Most of the convection has exited the coast. Time height indicates
some low level moisture will remain through about mid morning, with
clearing expected after that. Winds will eventually swing around to
the north, with falling dewpoints this evening. No fog is expected.

Extended outlook... Rain chances and MVFR probabilities increase
late Tuesday through Wednesday associated with a warm front.

Marine
Isolated tstms early, mariners should seek a radar update if heading
out soon. In wake of the rain, west winds this morning, becoming sw
this afternoon, below advisory speeds. Residual E swell and wind-sea
combined will result in 3-4 foot waves today, with W chop turning
from the SW later today. Tuesday manageable marine conditions and
favorable seas, before a strong warm front brings worsening marine
conditions late Tuesday onward, as S winds climb.

Winds will increase out of the s-sw tues night as warm front
lifts north over the waters. Wave of low pressure should
develop along this front, before a cold front sweeps across by
wed aftn. The winds may increase enough to push seas near or
just above SCA thresholds briefly on Wed as winds become
increasingly offshore. Cold and dry high pressure will build in
behind this system Wed night into thurs with a weak northerly surge
possible before diminishing as high pressure migrates closer
overhead through the end of the week. Seas down less than 3 ft
tues eve, will increase up to 3 to 5 ft through tues night into
wed with some 6 fters possible in the outer waters by Wed aftn.

Seas will subside as northerly winds diminish thurs into Fri and
will decrease further into the weekend as a winds begin to veer
around to the NE to e.

Tides coastal flooding
Minor tidal flooding requires an advisory for the lower CAPE fear
river with this late morning's high tide. This to include downtown
wilmington, and the battleship park grounds across the way.
