Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Wilmington NC 710 PM EDT Thu Apr 9 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will build in with cooler and drier conditions through early Saturday. A storm system will bring a good chance of showers and thunderstorms Sunday into the day Monday. Unsettled conditions may persist beyond Monday as well.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/. After a very warm afternoon aided by adiabatically compressed air traveling down the mountains, air temperatures will fall off 30 degrees fahrenheit in wake of a cold front, for most interior locations by the first light of Friday, min-T mainly 48-54 degrees, coolest well inland.

Partially RH recovery overnight, but not much higher than 55%, will lead to another exceptionally parched day Friday, accompanied by gusty afternoon winds, and another fire danger statement will be needed, coordinated/ok'd with SC and NC Forestry.

If you enjoy upper 30s to lower 40s in the mornings during April, you should stick around for a crisp early Saturday morning.

SHORT TERM /SATURDAY/. Quiet weather for the short term period as surface high pressure will be in charge with the mid level flow mostly zonal. There will be some increase in clouds late in the period with the next system taking shape to the west but overall measurable precipitation is not expected. Highs Saturday will be in the middle to upper 60s. Lows on the cool side Saturday morning in the upper 30s to lower 40s will warm substantially to around 50 or so.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/. Dynamic storm system still expected to affect the region Sunday through about Monday morning. An initial round of warm front precipitation will be followed (after a lull in activity) by a more strongly forced convective band late Sunday night into Monday morning. Guidance seems to have slowed down a bit but will wait and see if this is a trend or more spurious. Not much of a break beyond this initial system as pops remain the forecast via possible southern stream energy. The "net"of temperatures will probably be around normal with warmer than climatology early and cooler by the end of the period.

AVIATION /00Z FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. VFR for the next 24 hours for area terminals. Wind gusts will quickly diminish after sunset, but should ramp up again by the mid- morning hours on Friday. Low level wind shear possible over the next 3-6 hours around 2000 feet AGL out of the west between 40 to 45 kts, diminishing after 6z.

Extended Outlook . VFR conditions continue through the end of the week. Flight restrictions possible Sunday and Monday with an approaching low pressure system. VFR for mid next week.

MARINE. An 'Advisory' to remain posted, for 25 kt gusts offshore, while seas hold in a 3-5 foot range this period, composed almost entirely of NW waves every 4-5 seconds as cold air spreads over the waters. Unrestricted visibility with no TSTMs expected for the 0-20 NM waters this period. Easing NW winds Saturday will allow the advisory to drop.

Modest conditions early on with a southerly flow of 10-15 knots or less and seas of 1-3 feet will deteriorate in time as a storm system approaches and moves across Sunday into Monday morning. Winds and seas will increase markedly reaching a peak into Monday with southwest winds of 25-30 knots and seas of 8-10 feet. Small craft conditions are almost a given. Gusts to Gale are also possible. Winds and seas drop off somewhat dramatically in the wake of the system as cold air advection is very modest.

ILM WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES.

SC . None. NC . Coastal Flood Advisory from 9 PM this evening to 11 PM EDT Friday for NCZ106-108. Coastal Flood Advisory until 3 AM EDT Friday for NCZ107.

MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until 8 PM EDT Friday for AMZ250-252- 254-256.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
