Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Wilmington NC 230 AM EDT Sat Jun 22 2024

SYNOPSIS
A tropical disturbance will track inland around the northern Florida and southern Georgia coasts this evening. A warming trend will then begin Saturday with an extended period of heat, humidity, and diurnal convection through the middle of next week.

UPDATE
Showers continue around Georgetown area and are beginning to dissipate gradually. Onshore flow and low level convergence may continue to produce isolated showers for the remainder of this evening.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/
Surface high pressure centered to the northeast over the western Atlantic will continue to slowly shift eastward through Saturday as a tropical disturbance moves inland along the N FL/S GA coasts this evening. Lingering showers/isolated storms this evening will end due to loss of diurnal heating but additional showers could impact mostly coastal areas later tonight as weak coastal troughing develops. Some fog is expected inland later tonight due to increasing low-level moisture and light winds, which could become locally dense. Any fog will dissipate quickly around daybreak with mostly coastal showers transitioning inland with even a few rumbles of thunder possible. However, rainfall will be limited in any one place and thus we are not expecting a washout by any means.

Lows tonight should mostly be near to slightly above normal in the lower to mid 70s. Highs Saturday should be a bit warmer as the flow begins to turn southerly, generally ranging from the mid to upper 80s closer to the coast (with peak heat indices in the lower to mid 90s) to lower to mid 90s inland (with peak heat indices near 100 degrees).

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/
Mid level ridge will push to the west as a northwest flow develops across our area through early week. There appears to be a decent chance of convection both Sunday and Monday afternoon via basically more mesoscale features although some spin is noted in high resolution guidance Sunday probably from the tropical entity.
Temperatures will be on the increase with middle to upper 90s inland cooler along the coast and a return to middle 70s for lows. Residual higher dewpoints courtesy of the tropical wave along with these temperatures may necessitate a heat advisory Monday.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/
Overall the major components of the extended forecast remain in place. These consist of a brief northwest flow aloft relaxing in time along with very warm temperatures with perhaps an increasing chance for convection late. The warmest day will be Wednesday where the possibility of triple digit heat remains (inland) although probably not widespread. There continues to be some support for a decent rainfall event next Friday via mid level troughing and of course a stalling front this time of year.

AVIATION /06Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/
Increasing confidence in fog development tonight due to a combination of earlier rainfall, much more moisture advected across the area in the lower levels, ie 70s sfc dewpoints and winds becoming calm away from the immediate coast. Have hit the fog pretty hard across the inland terminals, including ILM.
Between 12z and 13z, the fog should dissipate as SE-S winds commence and the sun already 3hrs into the day, increasing altitude. Could observe onshore movement of shra after daybreak that may further develop into tstorms as overall flow pushes further inland. Have included VCSH for the coastal terminals this morning that will translate inland by this aftn. Have included a Prob30 tstorm threat mainly for the inland terminals.
Being activity will be diurnally induced, tstorms should dissipate around dusk. Look for convective clouds in the evening inland. Calm winds to give way to light SE-S flow during daylight hrs, except 10+ sustained later this morning thru the evening across the coastal terminals.

Extended Outlook... VFR to prevail outside of the periodic MVFR/IFR from diurnally-induced showers/storms and morning low clouds/fog.

MARINE
Through Saturday...Atlantic high pressure centered to the northeast will prevail as a tropical disturbance pushes inland along the N FL/S GA coasts tonight. Winds/seas will generally improve as the pressure gradient slackens off the Carolina coast.

Saturday night through Wednesday...A south to southwesterly flow will be in place a good part of the period with the strongest winds late Sunday into Monday via enhanced low level jetting probably ending up in the lower end of a 15-20 knot range. Outside of this 10-15 knots will be the case. A brief offshore direction is noted Tuesday but the more synoptic flow southerly flow will quickly jump back into place. Significant seas will be 2-4 feet.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING
Other - Rip Currents: A high risk of rip currents is in effect today for Pender, New Hanover, Horry, and Georgetown County beaches, as well as Ocean Isle Beach west in Brunswick, due to ESE swell and full moon. Although Oak Island and the south side of Bald Head Island should see weak rip activity today, the rip current risk will be higher for the western half of Brunswick and therefore a moderate risk is in effect for the county. Rip risk will improve to moderate for east facing beaches on Saturday as the ESE swell weakens, with a low risk forecasted for all beaches Sunday.

ILM WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
NC...High Risk for Rip Currents from 6 AM EDT this morning through this evening for NCZ106-108.
SC...None.
MARINE...None.
