Synopsis for coastal waters from surf city north carolina to south santee river south carolina out to 20 nautical miles - Inland high pressure will move to the coast Tuesday and offshore Tuesday night. The next cold front will arrive from the north Wednesday night, followed by high pressure ridging across the carolinas late in the week.

SYNOPSIS
High pressure will move offshore and allow for a gradual warmup until a back door cold front arrives Wednesday night. High pressure then builds from the north Thursday, retreating on Friday.

UPDATE
Moisture pooling at the surface leading to an increase in dewpoints across most of the area. This is a good sign for the agriculture community as the earlier concern for some frost seems to have decreased. Still on the lookout for fog development as it remains unclear if it will be a dew or fog night.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TODAY/
Mid/upper trough axis is passing overhead this afternoon. Low-level moisture is exiting to the east, with dry air being ushered in by a deep layer of NW flow. Once this afternoons residual cloud cover dissipates, overnight and Tuesday will be mainly clear, with winds becoming light and variable as the surface ridge moves to the coast. Winds inland stand a good chance of decoupling inland late tonight, and this should lead to temps falling into the upper 30s in low-lying areas. Would not be surprised if some of those typically colder spots have a few patches of frost before sunrise Tuesday.
Coastal zones should continue to stir with a few kts of wind overnight, but temps still likely to fall to around 40 there.

Tuesday will be mostly sunny, and with high pressure centered just south of the area, temps will rebound back to around 70.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/
High pressure moving off the coast will allow us to emerge from the cool pattern as southerly winds allow for a return to more normal temperatures. Some guidance is showing some very light rain Wed and/or Wed night but dewpoint depressions look too large Wed for this to be possible esp given the weakness of the forcing. Perhaps some small POPs will be warranted Wednesday night in future forecasts but will stay dry at this time. d discussion here.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/
High pressure wedges in from the north on Thursday though there is some spread regarding how far south it gets, farther meaning more cooling locally. Given that the downstream mid level trough is fairly weak the less aggressive solutions appear more accurate. The mid level ridge progresses east and moves overhead for Friday and the weekend meaning generally warm and rain-free conditions. A cold front approaches on Monday but it's progress appears to be halted by the ridge.

AVIATION /06Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/
VFR should dominate over the coming 24 hours. There is a low potential for reduced visibility in ground fog before sunrise at KFLO, KLBT, and KCRE.

Extended Outlook...VFR through Wednesday. There is a low probability of MVFR ceilings Wednesday night and Thursday associated with the next cold front.

MARINE
Through Tuesday: Seas will subside and winds diminish through the period, as surface high pressure shifts from the inland Carolinas to off the SE coast by Tuesday afternoon. Early afternoon obs from buoy 41013 continue to show gusts of 25-30 kt and 7 ft seas, so although conditions should improve by early evening, am planning to maintain the Small Craft Advisory with the afternoon forecast package. On Tuesday morning, the ridge axis looks to still be west of the waters, which would result in a northerly wind component, however during the afternoon, the high will move eastward allowing winds to swing around to the ESE. Seas will be dominated by a 2-4 ft ENE swell around 9-10 sec.

Tuesday through Saturday... HIgh pressure offshore will bring SW winds locally until a backdoor cold front moves through Wednesday night. Winds veer to NE behind this boundary which may steepen wave faces especially if the E swell continues to abate. Late in the period as the high both retreats and moves east flow will gradually turn ashore and then to the SE, generally capped in the 10-15 kt range.

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