Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Wilmington NC 634 AM EDT Sat Jun 15 2024

SYNOPSIS
A cold front will push through the Carolinas today with showers and thunderstorms possible as it slides through. Behind the front, high pressure will build in from the north and maintain control through much of next week. Seasonably warm temperatures are expected with rain chances returning late in the week as a coastal trough develops.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/
Overall high resolution guidance has come into better agreement with convection associated with a back door front this afternoon. It appears there will decent coverage late afternoon into early evening west to east from the Pee Dee region east to the coast
While it appears there will be a significant sea breeze
the extra convergence/lift provided by the front will be needed hence the orientation. Very warm highs expected today with good coverage of middle 90s...a little cooler along the beaches and just inland.
Finally the severe threat looks limited if for nothing else coverage but downdraft cape values could get interesting noting the antecedent conditions.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/
High pressure will extend into the area from the north through the period while a cold front stalls south and east of the area.
Dry weather is expected. Highs each day will be in the upper 80s to lower 90s with lows in the mid to upper 60s.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/
High pressure will extend into the area from the north through the period though there are indications a coastal trough could develop late in the week. Overall, little rainfall is expected though the coastal trough could bring a few showers or thunderstorms to the coastal counties late in the week. Highs each day will be in the upper 80s to lower 90s with lows in the mid to upper 60s.

AVIATION /12Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/
VFR conditions currently in place. Some convection still expected this afternoon into early evening seemingly from Flo to the coastal sites. Although guidance isn't necessarily more bullish with some 06 UTC guidance went ahead and added vcts to these sites.

Extended Outlook...VFR.

MARINE
Through tonight...Essentially light and variable winds most of the day will transition to a better defined east to northeasterly flow in the wake of a back door front later tonight. Significant seas will be 2-3 feet.

Sunday through Wednesday...A generally easterly flow will remain in place through the period with high pressure to our north. Seas will run 2 to 3 feet with 4 ft seas possible at times hearer 20 miles out.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING
Other - Rip Currents: A moderate risk of rip currents is expected for east- and southeast-facing beaches tomorrow due to a southeasterly 2-3 ft swell and mainly for east-facing beaches on Sunday as an easterly swell takes over. Lingering swells and onshore winds should keep a moderate risk of rip currents going for mainly the east-facing beaches into early next week.

ILM WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
NC...None.
SC...None.
MARINE...None.
