Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Wilmington NC 321 AM EDT Thu Jun 13 2024

SYNOPSIS
High pressure will remain north of the area while weak low pressure passes offshore Friday. A mainly dry cold front will move through Saturday followed by high pressure again from the north bringing temperatures and humidity down a bit for early next week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/
Overall quiet weather expected to continue through the near term forecast period under weak high pressure. Will be watching convection along a broad baroclinic zone well offshore but any guidance shower activity with this feature seems a bit bullish this far west citing the dry environment it will need to navigate. Highs today with a little more cloud cover to overcome will be in the upper 80s to near 90 inland. Lows Friday morning should check in around the middle to upper 60s.

SHORT TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/
Highlights: *No significant weather expected

Confidence: *Moderate to High

Details: Weak low pressure, likely non-tropical in nature, should not be too far offshore Friday before moving farther away to the northeast later in the day. On the backside of this low, a weak cold front should be approaching SE NC later Friday night. The front looks to move through the forecast area Saturday, although won't be bringing much of an air mass change as dewpoints likely won't lower too much. Rain chances will remain limited due to the lack of moisture/forcing.

Temps should be a good bit above normal due to more offshore flow Friday and frontal compression/ridging Saturday. Highs Friday should be in the lower to mid 90s most locales with heat indices peaking not too much hotter as we expect dewpoints to lower/mix out a bit during the day. However, it will be hotter and a bit more humid Saturday with highs mostly in the mid 90s (possibly a few upper 90s near the Pee Dee/Lowcountry) and peak heat indices near 100 degrees for much of the area. Fortunately, such heat indices are below our Heat Advisory criteria (105 degrees) but still expect a pretty muggy day. And there won't be much relief each night with lows near/above 70 most places.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/
Highlights: *No significant weather expected

Confidence: *Moderate to High

Details: A bit more comfortable weather is expected early next week as high pressure prevails from the north. Although a coastal trough could develop late in the period moisture will be rather limited and thus not much rain is expected. Temps should generally stay near normal through the period.

AVIATION /07Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/
Subtle mid level low drifting across from west to east bringing along with it some unassuming cloud cover. VFR expected to continue through the forecast period.

Extended Outlook...Generally VFR each day.

MARINE
Through Tonight...East to slightly northeast winds will continue across the waters between weak high pressure inland and a broad baroclinic zone well offshore. Speeds will be 15-20 knots today and decrease somewhat by Friday morning. Significant seas will be 2-4 feet with a few five footers mixed in later today and this evening coinciding with the stronger winds.

Friday through Monday...Weak low pressure, likely non-tropical in nature, will be situated not too far to the east of the Carolina coast to start the period. The low should move away to the northeast later Friday and be followed by a weak cold front which should move through Saturday. High pressure will then build in from the north for early next week. Although winds/seas will be elevated at times we do not anticipate conditions reaching Small Craft Advisory levels.

ILM WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
NC...Beach Hazards Statement through this evening for NCZ110.
SC...Beach Hazards Statement through this evening for SCZ054.
MARINE...None.
