Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 343 PM EDT Thu Jul 2 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure builds into the area through the weekend. An area of low pressure may develop and lift along the Southeast coast next week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM FRIDAY MORNING/. As of 310 PM Thurs . A few showers and thunderstorms may still pop up later this afternoon as a tardy sea breeze develops late today. Coverage is not expected to be very high at this point, however, and dry weather will likely prevail through tomorrow morning. With subsidence building from the west, we can expect mostly clear tonight with a few clouds possible. Nudged temps down a degree in some places in anticipation for somewhat decent radiational cooling tonight. Some patchy light fog is possible overnight at locations that see rain today, though confidence remains low. Overnight lows around the upper- 60s to low-70s.

SHORT TERM /6 AM FRIDAY MORNING THROUGH 6 PM FRIDAY/. As of 320 PM Thurs . Strong ridge of high pressure continues to build in the central US and into NC. We'll start with a light NNW flow that will attempt to fend off sea breeze development in the early afternoon. Some weak high pressure will develop along the SE coast during the day and turn winds more southerly later in the afternoon and could encourage a late-day seabreeze to develop. While an isolated shower cannot be ruled out along the sea breeze, forecast soundings show a dry profile tomorrow, thus any precip mention has been left out for the time being. Mostly sunny tomorrow with highs into the low-90s.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 315 AM Thursday . Upper ridging will extend east into the Saturday. Bermuda high pressure to the east re- establishes itself on Sunday, before low pressure forms over the Deep South late in the weekend then moves along or off the NC coast early next week.

Friday through Saturday . Upper level heights rise and weak upper ridging will extend into the region Sat. Chance of late day showers and storms along the sea breeze Saturday but still not a bad fourth of July. With less precipitation coverage, highs should warm into the lower 90s for many areas Saturday.

Sunday and Sunday night . Bermuda high pressure will temporarily build into the region Sunday as the front dissipates over the region. This will lead to warm humid conditions with scattered sea breeze activity in the late day hours. Highs mainly upper 80s.

Monday through Wednesday . The models continue to show the development of a surface low over the Deep South Sunday which is then forecast to move near or off the NC coast early next week. The low will draw deeper moisture north into the area and thus will have high chance PoPs for Monday through Wednesday. Daytime highs mainly in the mid to upper 80s each day.

AVIATION /19Z THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. Short Term /through Friday/ . As of 120 PM Thurs . Pred VFR for period with a few moments of sub-VFR possible in a sct shower or thunderstorm this afternoon, but coverage is expected to remain low. Mostly clear overnight with only a slight chance for fog in areas that receive rainfall today, so have precluded any fog mention for now. Light NNE winds today will turn NNW tomorrow and stay around 10 knots and lower.

Long Term /Friday through Monday/ . As of 315 AM Thursday . Little to no precipitation expected Friday and Saturday with mostly VFR conditions prevailing. Better rain chances return Sunday into early next week with the Bermuda high setting up to the east resulting in a good influx of Gulf Moisture. Expect mostly VFR conditions, but scattered showers and storms could lower conditions briefly Sunday and Monday. As usual, with very moist low levels, morning stratus and fog may occur in areas that receive rain on the previous day leading to sub VFR conditions.

MARINE. Short Term /through Friday/ . As of 340 PM Thurs . Nearly impeccable boating conditions continue tonight and tomorrow with light winds out of the north at 10 kts or less, turning south Friday afternoon, and seas 2-3 ft.

Long Term /Friday through Monday/ . As of 315 AM Thursday . Benign marine conditions will continue through early next week with a generally light gradient over the region resulting in winds 5-15 kt through the period. Winds will be mainly S/SW with the northern and portions of the central waters becoming easterly Sat and Sunday. Seas will 2-3 ft through Sunday building to 3-4 ft Mon afternoon.

MHX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. NC . None. MARINE . None.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
