Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 359 PM EDT Fri Sep 25 2020

SYNOPSIS. The remnants of Beta will reach the Carolinas today leading to periods of rain lasting into Saturday. A cold front will slowly approach the area early next week, moving through mid week. Cooler high pressure will build in late week and next weekend.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SATURDAY MORNING/. As of 330 PM Friday . Patchy light to moderate rain continues to moves from southwest to northeast across our southern and western CWA at late afternoon. Latest infrared satellite showing some colder cloud tops in eastern SC and there is a small window for some locally strong storms with heavy downpours after about 6 pm into late evening. There will be decent shear, but instability will be rather limiting to any sustained severe weather threat. With precipitable water values approaching 2 inches, heavy downpours that could produce localized flooding is possible. The convective threat should wane by midnight with more of a good coverage of stratiform rain through the overnight hours. Lows tonight will be in the mid to upper 60s.

SHORT TERM /6 AM SATURDAY MORNING THROUGH 6 PM SATURDAY/. As of 345 PM Friday . A decent coverage of mostly light to moderate rain will continue Saturday morning in all areas and during the afternoon along the Outer Banks, before ending in the evening as the surface low associated with the remnants of Beta moves along the NC coast and to our north late in the day. PoPs will be likely near the coast for much of the day. High temperatures will be quite warm given SE/S winds, with highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/. As of 350 PM Fri . Unsettled with temps near or slightly above climo for the first several days of the period, then cooler and drier late next week.

Saturday Night through Sunday . Upper ridge will briefly build over the area Sat night and Sun, with models hinting at weak coastal trough development just off the coast. Expecting only isolated to widely scattered showers/tstms Sun. Temps near to slightly above normal this weekend, with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s Sat and low to mid 80s Sun.

Monday through Thursday . The upper flow is forecast to become more amplified next week with an Eastern upper trough developing. The leading edge of the trough will be associated with a strong surface cold front which will move slowly across the Mid Atlantic, producing scattered showers and thunderstorms. Good amt of model spread and uncertainty this morning. Models now much slower with the frontal passage. The EC is much more robust developing a strong sfc and upper low, while the GFS is about 24 hr faster and weaker with the system. Right now best precip chances look like Tuesday, so increased pops a bit. Drier and cooler air will filter in behind the front late week with troughing aloft and sfc high building in. Highs in the upper 70s to low 80s through Wed and cooling a few deg back into the 70s Thu and Fri.

AVIATION /20Z FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. Short Term /through 18Z Saturday/ . As of 110 PM Friday . A mixed bag of aviation conditions across the area at early afternoon with IFR conditions inland at KPGV and KISO and VFR conditions at KEWN/KOAJ. Will forecast a continuation of lower ceilings inland and will show lower ceilings after 00z for the eastern TAF sites and moisture increases and cloud heights lower. Will forecast a period of widespread IFR ceilings in the morning in showers. Will show some improvement by mid-morning at KPGV, but ceilings remain MVFR/IFR at the other three sites through early afternoon Saturday.

Long Term /Saturday Night through Wednesday/ . As of 350 PM Fri . Widespread sub-VFR conditions likely through Sunday morning, mainly in the form of low ceilings though patchy fog will be possible inland Sunday morning. Showers and isolated tstms becoming more isolated Sunday and Monday. Conditions will be improving Sunday with pred VFR returning and should continue into Mon. Sub-VFR chances increase Tue as front approaches the area.

MARINE. Short Term /Tonight and Saturday/ . As of 350 PM Friday . Winds are more ENE/E over the northern tier and SE/S over the southern tier at late afternoon with winds speeds of 5-15 knots. Seas continue 2-3 feet with some 10-13 second swell periods. Winds Saturday will be SE/S 5-15 knots with seas 2-4 feet.

Long Term /Saturday Night through Wednesday/ . As of 4 PM Friday . Sunday still looks like the best boating day with winds generally 10 kt or less and seas 2-4 ft. A cold front will slowly approach the waters early next week, likely not pushing through until mid week. S/SW winds 5-15 kt Mon and 10-15 kt Tue. Periods of gusty S/SW winds 15-20 kt expected ahead of the front Tue night through Wed night. There is potential for a period of SCA conditions mid week.

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