Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 325 PM EST Sat Dec 7 2019

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will build in through Sunday. A warm front will move north through the area Sunday night into Monday. A strong cold front will move through Tuesday night and early Wednesday. High pressure will build north of the area through late next week, with another system likely impacting the area next weekend.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. As of 3 PM Saturday . High pressure centered over the northern Mid-Atlantic will ridge south into the area with shortwave ridging building aloft. Clear skies and light winds will allow for good radiational cooling inland with lows expected in the low to mid 30s. Gradients will remain a little tighter along the coast providing greater mixing and expect lows in the upper 30s to mid 40s.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY/. As of 3 PM Saturday . Shortwave riding will continue to migrate over the area with surface high pressure continuing to ridge into the area as it pushes off the New England coast. As the high moves eastward, a coastal trough will back toward the area through the day and will see increasing clouds through the afternoon with isolated showers possibly moving onshore late in the day, mainly south of highway 70. With CAA waning, temps will be a few degrees warmer than today with highs in the mid 50s to lower 60s, warmest near the coast.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 240 PM Sat . Unsettled weather is likely for Sunday night through Wednesday morning as deep moisture returns ahead of a deep upper trough and associated strong surface cold front. High pressure will build north of the area mid to late next week, with another system likely impacting ENC next weekend.

Sunday night through Wednesday . High pressure will continue to move east into the Atlantic Sunday night, as a weak coastal trough/warm front develops along the SE coast. This system will lift north across the area as a warm front Sunday night into Mon and produce widespread showers, especially east of Highway 17 due to a combination of a deepening mid-level trough, mid- level shortwave energy and precipitable water values that will increase to 1.25 inches or better. The rain is expected taper off inland Mon morning and coastal areas Late Mon with a period of mainly dry weather expected Mon night and Tue. More widespread shower activity is expected again Tuesday night into early Wed. With increasing southerly flow, high temperatures will be above normal Monday and Tuesday. Highs Monday will be around 70 with middle 70s possible Tuesday. Some guidance shows areas along Hwy 17 climbing into the low 80s Tue afternoon. The strong cold front will push through the area late Tue night into early Wednesday. Temps will come crashing down into the 50s behind the front Wed afternoon.

Wednesday night through Saturday . Strong high pressure will build in from the north with much cooler and drier air Wed night and Thursday with highs Thu only in the 40s. Widespread lows near or below freezing both Thursday and Friday mornings. Models continue to show a stronger frontal system impacting the area next weekend. Still a week out with quite a bit uncertainty but the GFS and ECMWF are in pretty good agreement showing a warm front pushing through ENC Friday night, with sfc low lifting through the Carolinas Friday night and Saturday. Widespread moderate to heavy showers will be possible. Depending on how this evolves there will also be the potential for strong to severe storms.

AVIATION /19Z SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Short Term /through Sunday afternoon/ . As of 1240 PM Sat . Northeasterly flow will bring a few low clouds will filter into the southern TAF sites and bring very brief periods of MVFR. Otherwise, mainly VFR through the TAF period. Some gusts around 15 kt or so expected this afternoon, before winds become light late afternoon through tonight. Dew points are expected to remain low enough to prevent any fog or stratus overnight.

Long Term /Sunday night through Thursday/ . As of 240 PM Sat . Unsettled weather is expected Sunday night through Wednesday morning with gusty winds, scattered showers and periods of sub-VFR conditions likely.

MARINE. Short Term /Through Sunday/ . As of 315 PM Saturday . High pressure will continue to ridge into the area through tonight, then a coastal trough will back into the waters Sunday. NE winds around 15-25 kt will gradually diminish overnight through Sunday morning, then winds become E to SE around 10-15 kt during the afternoon as the coastal trough pushes into the area. Seas around 4-7 ft through this evening diminish to 3-5 ft by Sunday afternoon.

Long Term /Sunday night through Thursday/ . As of 240 PM Sat . Still no changes to previous thinking with an active weather pattern expected through the end of next week which will result in hazardous boating conditions with strong winds and elevated seas AOA 6 ft through the period. Sunday night SE winds 15-20 kt will increase to 20-30 kt becoming S Mon with a potential for Gales over the central waters. Mon night through Tue evening SW winds are forecast 20-25 kt. Winds will shift N/NW 15-25 kt behind the front late Wed night and continue through Thu. Seas will remain AOA 6 ft, peaking at 8-12 ft Mon afternoon and evening.

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.
