Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Wilmington NC 620 AM EDT Sun Jun 16 2024

SYNOPSIS
High pressure builds in from the north and maintains 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/
High pressure will extend into the area from the north today and tonight while an old front lingers to the south and west. While much of the area will remain dry today and tonight, there is a small chance for showers and storms over our western areas that are nearer the boundary. Skies will be mainly sunny east and partly cloudy west. Highs today will reach the upper 80s to lower 90s with cooler numbers nearer the beaches. Lows tonight will fall to the upper 60s.



SHORT TERM /MONDAY THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/
Mid level ridge will build across the area through the short term period with the associated surface high axis well off to the northeast. A relatively deep east to northeasterly flow will keep temperatures hovering spot on climatology with no chances for rain. Highs will range from the middle 80s or so along the coast with values near 90 well inland. Lows will be a little more uniform with basically middle 60s.



LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/
Somewhat remarkably consistent forecast even in the warm season when things can have a tendency not to change much. The aforementioned mid level ridge in the short term discussion will shift northward with the modified easterly flow continuing.
Temperatures remain within a few degrees of climatology leaning warmer late. Medium range guidance is also liking a tropical wave or low moving across the region (probably more south considering the massive ridge) which may bring a few showers and or increased cloud cover later in the period as well.



AVIATION /12Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/
Mainly VFR conditions are expected through the valid taf period.
Given that we saw brief periods of 1Kft Cigs along the Grand Strand earlier, it's not unreasonable that something similar could happen in the 06 to 12Z Tuesday timeframe. However, the chances of that are too low for inclusion in the forecast attm. Expect mainly easterly flow of 10 KT or less.

Extended Outlook...VFR.

MARINE
Through Tonight...
East winds of 10 to 15 KT are expected today and tonight, though speeds could drop off a little tonight. Seas of 2 to 4 feet are expected.

Monday through Thursday...
Uncanny persistence for the marine community as well with basically east winds of 10-15 knots and seas at least early on in a range of 2-4 feet. The persistent fetch leads to a significant swell component developing by mid to late week with increasing chances of small craft conditions.

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