Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Wilmington NC 626 PM EST Thu Dec 12 2019

SYNOPSIS. Low pressure developing in the Gulf of Mexico will move along the Carolina coast Friday evening, pushing a cold front offshore Friday night. Canadian high pressure will build in from the northwest Saturday through Sunday. Southerly winds will bring warmer temperatures Monday and Tuesday, followed by increasing rain chances as another cold front crosses the area late Tuesday. Cold and dry weather will follow for mid-week.

UPDATE. Main update is sky cover as the Pee Dee region has become overcast and should remain that way through the night. Clouds will increase across the Cape Fear region this evening with overcast conditions also expected overnight. Will monitor temperature trends for any needed changes given the potential for evaporational cooling inland once rain arrives.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH FRIDAY/. Main forecast concern for the next 36 hours is the onset timing of moderate to heavy rainfall at times, which may bring minor flooding to poor drainage and low lying areas.

High pressure over the northeast will continue to move eastward and bring northeast winds across the Cape Fear Region. As a result of the combination of the offshore Gulf Stream flow, a coastal low is expected to develop ahead of an upper level shortwave trough. Latest model guidance has light rain starting inland during the overnight hours along the I-95 corridor and will spread toward the coastline Friday morning. The heaviest widespread rainfall will occur during the day Friday, with precipitation rates slowing evening. Heavy brief rainfall is also likely to occur within the strongest rain showers Friday night, but mainly additional accumulations are anticipated to be light. Most model soundings have main instability remaining offshore, so chances inland for thunderstorms is limited, although a non-zero chance for some rumbles mainly near the coast.

SHORT TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/. A progressive pattern continues as mid-level shortwaves will continue to cross over the regions. The forecast still calls for a surface low-pressure area to move northeast up the coast on Saturday, and high pressure will briefly move into the forecast area Saturday night. The 12 UTC GFS, ECMWF, GEFS are fairly similar with timing and the main low is up the coast, similar to a Miller Type A pattern. The 12 UTC ECMWF mean shows 12 to 15 members with low-pressure areas over the Appalachian's more of a Miller Type-B evolution; most of the other members are clustered over northeast North Carolina early Saturday. At this time prefer the Miller Type A solution. The chances of rain will wane by noon, with the GFS hanging on the rain a bit longer.

High temperatures will reach the mid-60s at the coast and the lower 60s inland. Lows Saturday night are forecast to fall into the mid-40s at the coast and near 40 west of Interstate 95.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. A second mid-level trough will be over the Mississippi Valley on late Tuesday. At the surface the 12 UTC GFS, GEFS, ECMWF, and ECMWF ensemble mean are in fairly good agreement with a low developing and being over the Ark-La-Miss Monday mid-day Monday. All the global models and ensemble means are in decent agreement driving the front through the eastern Carolina during the day on Tuesday. Amounts of rainfall range between 0.25" and 0.5" with this front. High temperatures will be in the low 60s Sunday and the mid to upper 60s Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday and Thursday Highs will be in the lower 50s. Low temperature will vary from the low to mid-40s Monday morning to mid to upper 50s Tuesday. With the frontal passage on Tuesday, low temperatures will fall into the lower 30s.

AVIATION /00Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. Widespread MVFR expected to continue across the area as a tongue of low-level moisture surges northward from the Gulf Stream. Look for ceilings to lower IFR, overnight from south to north, and likely last through Saturday afternoon. Rain chances ramp up tomorrow morning, becoming heavier into the afternoon. At least IFR conditions are expected by Friday morning with LIFR/VLIFR possible. Surface winds remain out of the NE through tomorrow afternoon between 5-10 kts, with gusts along coastal SC this afternoon and evening. Winds at 2000 ft after sundown tonight will increase to near 30 kts out of the SE, just shy of LLWS TAF inclusion.

Extended Outlook . MVFR/IFR likely through Saturday afternoon as an area of low pressure moves by the coastal Carolinas. VFR expected Sunday and Monday. Sub-VFR conditions could return Tuesday as a cold front approaches.

MARINE. Tonight through Friday Night: Waves between 4 and 7 feet from the northeast between 6 and 8 seconds and northeast winds 15 to 25 kts with gusts to 30 kts continue today and tonight with conditions gradually improving into Friday. A coastal low develops Friday and brings chances for showers and thunderstorms offshore, especially beyond 10 NM. Once the low passes Friday, gusty winds and small craft advisory conditions likely to return Saturday.

Saturday through Monday: A deepening low-pressure area will be moving north away from the coastal waters on Saturday. As the low exits offshore flow will see winds in the 15 to 20-knot range with possible small craft conditions at 20 nm off the coast between Surf City and Cape Fear and Murrells Inlet and the South Santee River for seas of 6 feet through last Saturday night. As the low exits off the coast winds and seas will decrease on Monday. This calmer marine conditions will be short-lived as a frontal boundary approaches and southerly winds will be on the increase late Monday.

ILM WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. SC . None. NC . None. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until 7 AM EST Friday for AMZ250-252-254- 256.
