Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Wilmington NC 1032 PM EDT Fri Jul 3 2020

SYNOPSIS. Weak high pressure will build in from the north through Saturday with lower chances of rainfall. A better chance of showers will return early next week as broad low pressure develops to our south.

UPDATE. No big changes necessary from the ongoing forecast with this update.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/. Yesterday's front that produced scattered thunderstorms near and south of Cape Fear is now stalled across north Florida. Drier and continued warm weather covers the Carolinas in a featureless pressure pattern, topped off by a subsidence inversion downstream of a 500 mb ridge across the Ohio Valley.

Mainly clear skies and dry weather is expected tonight. Diurnal cumulus will develop again on Saturday, but the subsidence inversion should still hold firm and prevent deep convection from developing. After lows tonight in the lower 70s, highs Saturday should approach the warmest readings of the year so far with mid 90s inland and 89-93 near the coast.

Highest temperatures recorded so far in 2020: Wilmington 93 on June 22 Florence 95 on June 30 N Myrtle Beach 94 on June 28 Lumberton 92 on June 28 & 30

Weak low pressure developing off the Mid-Atlantic coast Saturday night will push another weak front southward, but latest models show the boundary remaining to our north through sunrise Sunday.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. Chances for convection return for the short and long term periods for that matter as moisture increases at all levels but most importantly the mid levels. Another catalyst will be a boundary dropping southward Sunday into Monday. We basically continue to advertise low chance pops through the period with Monday afternoon offering up the highest values via the confluence of instability and forcing. Temperatures will be more or less about average maybe a couple of degrees cooler Monday.

LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/. The extended period remains basically unchanged and unsettled. Mid level heights will drift downward as a weakness and or closed system meanders toward the area. The highest pops, at least for now occur Tuesday with likely values trending slightly lower in time mainly due to uncertainty if nothing else. Temperatures may be slightly below normal for highs and above for overnight lows thus leading to basically a wash regarding climatology.

AVIATION /03Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. VFR through the 00Z TAF period with mostly clear skies and light and variable winds with weak high pressure over the area. Dry conditions expected as well.

Extended Outlook . Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms return Sunday through the middle of next week.

MARINE. Yesterday's cold front has stalled across northern Florida and will gradually dissipate over the next few days. A diffuse pressure pattern will continue across the Carolinas with mainly light winds driven mainly by the afternoon and evening seabreeze. Seas should average only 1-2 feet in 9-second southeast well.

Weak low pressure expected to develop tonight off the Mid-Atlantic coast will push another front southward, reaching North Carolina Saturday night. At this time it appears the front won't make it farther south than New Bern or Morehead City before sunrise Sunday.

Summertime pattern will be in full swing for the short and long term periods for the marine community. South to southeast winds of 10 knots or so will be in place. Significant seas will be around two feet with little in the way of a swell component. Guidance is showing some difference of opinion late in the period with the development of a low off the coast so as usual this will need to be monitored.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
