Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Wilmington NC 308 PM EDT Tue Jun 25 2024

SYNOPSIS
Hot and humid conditions will continue through the weekend. Two cold fronts will move into the region on Thursday and Monday bringing increased chances of thunderstorms. Temperatures will dip to near normal early next week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH WEDNESDAY/
As a surface front washed out today, the onshore flow this morning was enhanced by outflow from offshore convection. The low-level moisture and outflow have provided more cloud cover than anticipated. Isolated convection has just formed in the past hour in southern Georgetown. The convection is expected to remain isolated through the evening.

Overnight, isolated fog is possible toward sunrise. Wednesday will be another hot day, with temperatures in the mid-to-upper 90s inland and lower 90s at the coast. The heat indices will again reach into the lower 100s on Wednesday afternoon and will be close to heat advisory conditions.

SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/
Hot and humid conditions continue, with low temps in the mid 70s and forecasted highs Thursday afternoon in the upper 90s (away from the coast). Increased variability in the afternoon temps is likely as lingering front inland, sea breeze, and an upper shortwave passage combine to bring scattered convection to the area into the evening hours Thursday. No severe weather concerns at this time given minimal shear - however slow storm motions (less than 10 kts) could lead to isolated pockets of heavy rain accumulations. Depending on cloud and storm coverage, most areas will likely see heat indices in the triple digits Thursday.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/
Extended period of above normal temperatures and elevated humidity will continue through Sunday, with heat advisories possible each day (heat indices >=105F). Diurnal storms possible Friday and Saturday with afternoon sea breeze and Piedmont trough, although weak upper ridge nearby and some dry air aloft will limit coverage both days. An upper trough passing well to the north Sunday will weaken the ridge, with guidance showing PWATs increasing to over 2" Sunday into Sunday night. Typical daytime convection Sunday with continued chances into Monday as a cold front slowly approaches from the northwest. Temperatures may drop to near normal for early next week.

AVIATION /19Z TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/
Pesky cloud cover from morning fog and outflow from offshore convection has finally lifted to VFR conditions. Only an isolated thunderstorm is expected well inland from the coastal TAFS. VFR conditions expected with MVFR from BR towards sunrise.

Extended Outlook...VFR should prevail outside of periodic MVFR/IFR during diurnal showers/thunderstorms plus spotty morning low clouds/fog.

MARINE
Through Wednesday...Over the next 24 hours, we can expect a shift in wind direction as high pressure attempts to build back west over the coast waters. The northeast winds this afternoon will gradually veer to the south by Wednesday. Wind speeds will maintain a steady 10 knots overnight but will pick up to 10 to 13 knots by Wednesday afternoon. As for the seas, we anticipate a slow subsiding from 3 to 4 feet to 3 feet by Wednesday.

Wednesday Night through Saturday...Southerly flow around Bermuda high dominates the coastal waters Wednesday night into the weekend, with brief backing to southeasterly Saturday. Wind speeds 10-15 kts Wednesday night and Thursday, with gusts around 20 kts Wed night, lower to around 10 kts Friday and Saturday.
Seas around 3 ft Wed night and Thursday lowers to 2-3 ft Friday into the weekend, mix of S wind wave and a 2-3 ft 9 sec SE swell. Best chance for thunderstorms over the coastal waters will come Thursday evening into overnight hours as an upper level trough moves across the area, with widely scattered overnight convection every other night.

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