Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Wilmington NC 258 PM EDT Sat Jul 24 2021

SYNOPSIS. Dry weather will continue through the weekend with pleasant temperatures. Rain chances will return Monday, increasing Tuesday and Wednesday as a cold front stalls in the area.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/. Once again a rare rain-free July forecast for the near term. PW values starting off once again near their climatological 25th percentile, winding up closer to normal by the end of the period. But an increase in moisture without lift does not bode well for rain chances. While one or two minute showers could pop up on the seabreeze Sunday afternoon they will likely not manage to produce measurable rainfall.

SHORT TERM /MONDAY THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/. Quite an active short term period coming up as a slow moving cold front with an attendant mid level trough impact the area. Pops will ramp up especially overnight Monday extending into Tuesday. Will continue the likely values for Tuesday buffered by good chance either side of this. Temperatures seem to be reasonable with highs in the lower 90s or so and morning lows, mitigated by moisture in the lower and even middle 70s.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. The cold front will continue to plod slowly through the area warranting healthy pops at least through Wednesday. Always worth noting that guidance seems to slow down with these features more often than not so adjustments may be needed. Outside of this expect a couple of dry days late in the work week By next weekend another system in similar fashion to the first system brings an increased chance of showers and thunderstorms once again. Outside of moisture the downslope drying flow will ramp up temperatures seemingly higher than seasonal norms.

AVIATION /19Z SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. VFR conditions should continue through the 18Z TAF period. A few stratocumulus clouds at 4000-5000ft have popped up near the seabreeze, which is likely to continue through the afternoon. Seabreeze is also pulling the winds at the coastal terminals from the southeast, but winds will restore to a more easterly component by the evening. After sunrise Sunday morning, southeasterly winds at 5-10kts set up at all terminals towards the end of the TAF period.

Extended Outlook . No organized areas of MVFR/IFR conditions are expected. Thunderstorm coverage should increase by Tuesday with better potential for brief IFR visibility then.

MARINE. Through Sunday night: Surface high pressure in the west Atlantic will extend a ridge axis into the Carolinas through the period. Winds initially out of the east will turn to the southeast tonight as the ridge axis weakens. There may also be a subtle wind direction change associated with the area of tropical interest east of Florida, but this feature's fate is quite uncertain at this point. 2- 3 ft seas will be a combination of a 5 second wind chop, a 7 second wind wave, and a very weak 10 second SE swell.

Monday through Thursday: No real changes to the marine forecast with a southerly component to the winds through the period, possibly a bit more southwest in time approaching midweek. A front is progged to move close to the waters but weaken in the process thus no wind shift. Significant seas will be 2-4 feet.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. Tidal ranges remain elevated due to yesterday's full moon, and another round of minor coastal flooding is anticipated to occur this evening. On the beaches high tide should occur between 8:30 and 9:00 pm, and around 11:00 pm on the Cape Fear River at downtown Wilmington. Tides should reach levels very similar to those experienced last night, aided by onshore winds which are helping sustain a 0.7 to 1.0 foot positive water level anomaly relative to predicted astronomical tides.

ILM WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. SC . Coastal Flood Advisory from 8 PM to 11 PM EDT this evening for SCZ054-056. NC . Coastal Flood Advisory from 8 PM to 11 PM EDT this evening for NCZ106-108-110. Coastal Flood Advisory from 9 PM this evening to 2 AM EDT Sunday for NCZ107. MARINE . None.
