Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 305 PM EST Thu Nov 21 2019

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will gradually slide offshore tonight. A cold front will move close to the area Friday, and then push through late Saturday night. High pressure will build over the area late this weekend into early next week, with another front approaching the area mid week.

NEAR TERM /TONIGHT/. As of 300 PM Thurs . The latest meso-analysis is showing the center of high pressure over the Carolinas this afternoon, while the ridge axis is over the East Coast and bringing a few high clouds moving along the ridge. The high will gradually slide off the coast tonight, but allow winds to for a few tonight before winds become light from the SW. With mostly clear skies with a few cirrus clouds stream through, expect overnight lows in the low/mid 40's inland and upper 40s to low 50s along the coast.

SHORT TERM /FRIDAY/. As of 300 PM Thurs . The sfc high will continue to move further SE from the coast, while a cold front approaches the region from the west. Clouds will gradually increase and lower throughout the day. Most of the day will be dry with a possible slight chance of showers late in the day along the northern zones; ahead of the frontal boundary. Models have trended drier, therefore reduced PoPs and coverage area. Low level thicknesses is supporting highs in the low/mid 60s over the NE to upper 60s near Duplin, and Onslow counties.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 200 PM Thu . Unsettled weather still expected for for Saturday and Saturday night. High pressure will build back over the area late this weekend into early next week. Another cold front will but with limited moisture approach the area mid next week.

Friday night through Saturday night . A backdoor cold front will push south through the area Fri night and early Sat, then lift back north through the area during Sat. Looks like moisture will be limited Fri night into Sat morning so not expecting much precipitation during this time and will keep PoPs at a minimum. Better chances for rain western and northern areas Sat afternoon with the retreating front. PoPs increase to likely all areas Sat night as the front crosses the area. Could see some thunder Sat night, especially near the coast. Temps Sat will be tricky due to with cloud cover and location of frontal boundary during peak heating. Temps across the southern areas will likely be able to climb in the mid to upper 60s, while temps across the northern forecast area may struggle to break 60 deg.

Sunday through Thursday . Dry weather looks to return late weekend into early next week as the cold front pushes offshore early Sun followed by high pres building in from the west Sunday into Tue. Slightly below normal temps expected behind the front with highs 55-60 deg through Mon and lows in the upper 30s to mid 40s. Highs should warm into the low to mid 60s on Tue and mid to upper 60s on Wed. A cold front with limited moisture will approach from the west mid week, with next rain chance Wednesday. The models are continuing to trend drier with moisture having a tough time making it east of the mountains. Thanksgiving Day is forecast to be dry and cool with highs 55-60.

AVIATION /20Z THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. Short Term /Through Friday/ . As of 1240 PM Thu . VFR conditions are expected through the TAF period with just some ocnl cirrus streaming through. A small chance of some BR tonight, esp KPGV and KEWN, though will leave out of the forecast attm as confidence is too low on this developing. Winds will be light through much of the period, then inc swrly winds gusting in the 15 kt range by late morning Fri.

Long Term /Friday night through Tuesday/ . As of 200 PM Thu . Periods of sub-VFR possible Friday night into early Sat mainly in ceilings due to increasing low level moisture, then better chances late Sat and Sat night as a frontal system and associated precipitation moves through the area. Pred VFR is expected to return Sun continuing into Tue as high pressure builds back over the area.

MARINE. Short Term /through Friday/ . As of 300 PM Thurs . SCA over the central water cancelled as seas became less than 6 ft, but Small Craft conditions begin again tomorrow morning across all coastal waters including the Pamlico Sound.

SW winds increase Friday morning to 15-25 knots ahead of cold front . with Small Craft Conditions starting tomorrow mid-morning through most of the day. Seas will remain 3-5 ft tonight, then build back to 4-6 by Friday night.

Long Term /Friday night through Tuesday/ . As of 200 PM Thu . Winds will be veering and decreasing Fri night as a backdoor cold front moves south through the waters. W winds 15-20 kt ahead of the front will become N/NE around 15 kt overnight behind the front. Seas 4-6 ft in the early Fri evening will subside to 2-4 ft late. Sat the front will drift back north through the waters with NE winds 10-15 kt early veering to S/SW in the afternoon with seas remaining 2-4 ft.

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