Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 1022 PM EDT Sat Jul 11 2020

SYNOPSIS. A weak front will gradually dissipate across the area tonight and through Monday. Bermuda high pressure will then build into the area early next week, with an inland lee trough over the piedmont.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SUNDAY MORNING/. As of 1020 PM Sat . A few widely scattered showers and thunderstorms have formed along the coast and offshore at this hour. With a diffuse boundary still draped along the coast, this scattered activity is expected to continue through most of tonight. Muggy again, with lows in the low to mid 70s inland, and upper 70s to around 80 along the coast.

SHORT TERM /6 AM SUNDAY MORNING THROUGH 6 PM SUNDAY/. As of 350 PM Saturday . The frontal boundary will move to near the coast and gradually dissipate Sunday. Any convection tomorrow will be mostly driven by the sea breeze with limited coverage expected once again. Will slight chance PoP for most areas with high temperatures in the upper 80s coast and low to perhaps mid 90s inland. A few heat index values approaching 105 degrees are possible in the afternoon.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 3 PM Sat .

Monday . The last day that we will be under the influence of the trof and by late afternoon, a short wave will approach from the west. Increased rain chances here into the likely range to account for the better upper level support. Highs again well into the 90s.

Tuesday - Friday . Little day to day change with the trof mentioned above lifting out, and high pressure aloft building across the Carolinas. Typical daily convection will be possible especially along the sea breeze, and continued no higher than a 20 to 30% through the period. Temps will be summerlike or well into the 90s away from the beaches.

AVIATION /02Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Short Term /through Tomorrow Evening/ . As of 730 PM Sat . Mostly VFR conditions are expected through the TAF period, with the exception of some patchy MVFR fog that's possible to develop early tomorrow morning over the areas where rain fell this evening, including KOAJ and KEWN. Then, light winds and mostly sunny skies are expected tomorrow with just a slight chance of thunderstorms.

Long Term /Sunday Night through Thursday/ . As of 145 PM Sat . Mainly VFR through the period. Potential for brief MVFR restrictions especially during the afternoon in periods of showers or thunderstorms. Early morning fog also possible in the footprint of afternoon/evening rainfall.

MARINE. Short Term /Tonight and Sunday/ . As of 355 PM Saturday . A typical diurnal pattern in winds/seas is expected tonight and Sunday. SW winds of 10-15 knots with a few gusts close to 20 knots are likely this evening, before dropping back to 5-15 knots overnight. A similar setup for Sunday with 5-15 knots in the morning, increasing to 10-20 knots during the later afternoon and evening. Seas are currently hovering around 3 feet, but likely will see some 4-5 foot seas overnight and during the latter stages of Sunday as well.

Long Term /Sunday Night through Thursday/ . As of 300 PM Sat . Large swell will be the main boating concern during the long term period, especially Sunday night through early Tuesday.

Southwest winds mainly 10 to 15 kts with a few higher gusts Sunday Night through Tuesday. As winds peak Sunday night into Monday a few gusts to near 25 kts are possible. A building swell is expected Sunday night into Monday with local SWAN model showing some 6-foot seas Sunday night and later shifts may need to initiate Small Craft Advisories. By Monday, 5 to 8 foot waves are possible, before subsiding to 3 to 5 feet Tuesday. The boating pick of the week will be Wednesday with south winds less than 10 kts, and waves under 3 feet.

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

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
