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 SUNDAY/
Latest surface analysis shows a weak cold front slowing down as it nears the coast, while the seabreeze is starting to run into it from the other direction. Ample instability and the lift from these two boundaries is causing widely scattered showers and storms within parts of the Cape Fear and Grand Strand regions. Storms are finding the dry air aloft and capping above 700mb, so the activity is limited, and certainly not near severe limits. Capping may try to erode away late this afternoon, tapping into more of the instability. This would create more of a lightning threat, but the dry air aloft doesn't necessarily help this matter, particularly since the helicity is weak as well. DCAPE is also quite elevated, which could bring some decent gusty winds in some of these storms.

Regardless, this convection should settle down after sunset late this evening. Ridging starts to build in, and with no real upper level support going on, the surface front may stall somewhere in southern Williamsburg and Georgetown Counties. Lows mostly in the lower 70s. Some of the cooler spots in parts of Bladen and Pender Counties may dip into the low-to-mid 60s.

Ridging over the Georgia-Alabama border shifts eastward into the Carolinas Sunday. This should keep most everyone dry. The stalled front to the south does keep around some cloud cover, allowing for highs to reach a few degrees cooler than today.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/
High pressure off of the New England coast and ridging aloft will maintain dry weather and slightly above normal temperatures through much of next week. Persistent onshore flow will bring humid conditions Sunday night and Monday night. Highs on Monday will be in the upper 80s to lower 90s with lows in the mid to upper 60s both nights.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/
Ongoing high pressure and ridging continues through Thursday.
Latest global models develop a trough of low pressure offshore.
Steering flow will keep this low south of the area, but SE winds will increase. Persistent SE winds will lead to the development of swell creating the potential for elevated rip currents late this week. A weak 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 /19Z SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/
VFR conditions open the 18Z TAF period, which is expected to continue. Relatively low confidence on isolated storms this afternoon, with KCRE/KMYR having the best chance (not that the chances are that good). Threw in a TEMPO group from 19-22Z this afternoon and evening. Storms would bring brief MVFR to IFR conditions. Winds become a bit more variable tonight, with an easterly wind picking up by early Sunday afternoon.

Extended Outlook...VFR.

MARINE
Through Sunday... Southerly winds at 5-10kts back to the ENE late tonight, with the pressure gradient increasing the sustained speeds up to 10-15kts by Sunday afternoon. Seas remain at 2-3ft.

Sunday Night through Thursday... Persistent SE flow will be in place throughout the forecast period. SE swell will generally stay 2-3 feet through Tuesday. A gradual increase in swell energy is expected on Wednesday and especially Thursday as SE winds increase and a weak trough of low pressure develops over the western Atlantic. Seas increase to 3-5 feet on Wednesday and near SCA conditions (6+ feet) by Thursday. Given that the development of this low has been inconsistent in consecutive model runs, confidence is low in the potential for SCA conditions by Thursday.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING
Other - Rip Currents: A moderate risk of rip currents is expected for east-facing beaches tomorrow due to a E/SE swell around 2 feet. Lingering swells and onshore winds should keep a moderate risk of rip currents into early next week. Rip current chances are likely to increase late next week in persistent SE flow and increasing swell.

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