Synopsis
A gradual warming trend is expected in the days ahead with skies
remaining fair to partly cloudy, with very little chance of rain.

Near term through Saturday
Vertical azimuth display winds in shallotte, clocked off the kltx 88-
d measuring NE 25 kt at 1000 feet, and this to hold through morning.

The relatively large land-sea temperature differential is resulting
in a stationary land-breeze boundary offshore. As oceanic moisture
obliquely encounters this boundary, a few marine showers are likely
to pop up, but will mostly dissipate after departing the convergence
zone, or pass south and east of the santee river entrance of NE sc.

As the core of high pressure migrates SE today, low-level winds will
veer to e-ese in afternoon, resulting in maritime moisture flux over
land, and probably a few cumulus, otherwise fair today with plenty
sunshine minutes to rack-up. Since moisture depth will not reach
much above 2500 feet through Saturday, probabilities of pcpn will
remain too low for inclusion, with exception, dotting sea showers.

A decent warm-up today 2-5 degrees warmer than yesterday, mostly low
80s, near 80 beaches, ever slightly cooled by inshore water temps
and a veering wind today. Saturday max-t similar or a degree or 2
warmer, as an easy onshore flow prevails with oceanic moisture and
clouds producing cumulus, moderating temperatures a little bit.

Short term Saturday night through Sunday night
High pressure will slowly shift farther off the nc coast sat
night through Sun night. Light return flow around the base of
the high will produce an onshore to southerly flow. This
increasingly moist flow will nudge dewpoint temps up a bit and
therefore expect overnight lows a bit warmer heading into early
next week. The ridge aloft will continue to extend up into the
carolinas form the southwest producing plenty of dry air and
subsidence aloft. Some moisture may get stuck under inversion
sun night, but overall expect fair and dry weather with temps
near or slightly above normal.

Long term Monday through Thursday
The ridge gets suppressed slightly farther south on Monday
while mid to upper trough swings across the great lakes. This
will pick up jerry as it moves north well east of the carolina
coast Mon into tues. It will also push the tail end of a front
into the carolinas, but the ridge aloft will build back up from
the south helping to suppress any pcp. Therefore, expect mainly
just a few clouds possible and a slight increase in southerly
winds ahead of it Mon night into tues and brief wind shift to
the w-nw as high pressure builds in behind it. This westerly
downslope flow should help to push high temps up a bit on tues.

Overall, expect upper ridge and sfc high to dominate the weather
through much of the period with no pcp in sight. It will be
increasingly more humid with temps above normal through much of
next week.

Aviation 09z Friday through Tuesday
Vfr this TAF cycle. Inland maritime moisture and ocean cumulus
may bring occasional sct035. Or briefly bkn at coastal
airfields. Winds NE 4-8 kts this morning, veering to e-ese 5-11
kts in afternoon. Mist and fog if any, to remain isolated, and
mainly beyond this TAF period.

Extended outlook...VFR.

Marine
E swell brought to you by a departing humberto is maintaining
elevated seas, and gusty NE winds are still chopping on these long
period waves, making for hazardous marine conditions this morning,
especially outer waters. Trends however, point to improvement on the
waters, as both winds and easterly swell abate. Thus it is possible
after many days, that advisory flags may be lowered sometime today.

By Saturday we are expecting the E swell to fade, replaced by low
amplitude fore-runner waves from hurricane jerry perhaps late on
Saturday. In the mix Saturday, SE waves 1-1.5 feet every 7-8 seconds
and a light onshore chop, manageable, so look out fishes!
high pressure will shift farther off the hatteras coast on mon.

A weak and dry front will approach from the NW Mon night into
tues while jerry passes by well east of the waters. This should
kick s-sw winds up a bit late Mon and should swing winds around
to a more off shore direction on tues. Seas in the 2 to 3 ft
range on Sun should increase slightly late Mon into tues, but
overall expect seas in the 2 to 4 ft range with front-running
swell energy from jerry reaching into the waters.
