Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 1249 AM EDT Fri Jul 10 2020

SYNOPSIS. Tropical Storm Fay will continue to lift north away from the region through Friday. A weak front trailing Fay will linger in the region this weekend and into early next week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THIS MORNING/. As of 1240 AM Fri . Fcst on track with mostly dry weather overnight. Some isold light shra circulating around Fay may impact the coast.

Prev disc . TS Fay continues to lift north of the area this evening. Shower activity has become isolated throughout the area have have lowered PoPs to slight chance and removed thunder as shower activity across ENC is low topped. Winds will continue to decrease overnight while shifting to the NW and W as Fay lifts northward. Low temps will range from the low 70s inland to the upper 70s along the coast.

SHORT TERM /6 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH 6 PM TODAY/. As of 250 PM Thurs . The trend for tomorrow is towards a drier forecast, as drier air and some subsidence work into the area. There could be some widely scattered showers through the morning, and then expect a slight uptick during peak heating in shower/thunderstorm coverage, though still around 30% or less. With slightly more sunshine expected, afternoon highs will climb into the low 90s inland and along US 17, and the upper 80s to around 90 along the coast.

LONG TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 3 PM Thu .

Friday night . As the area of low pressure continues to move away from the area, expect mostly dry (with the exception of a few widely scattered showers) and seasonable conditions overnight into Saturday morning.

Saturday . While showers and storms can't be ruled out the entire long term period, Saturday at this vantage point looks to be the highest chance of the period. A cold front will move over our area while washing out. Meanwhile upstairs we will have a 500 mb short wave moving in late in the day. This shortwave will enhance precipitation changes mainly along and west of highway 17, and we will increased pops here to likely. Our atmosphere still will be soupy, with PWATS above 2" so again, locally heavy downpours will be possible. We remain hot, with highs well into the 90s inland.

Sunday through Tuesday . Not a lot of a pattern change Sunday and Monday. With a upper level high over the desert southwest, and another out in the Atlantic, the east coast will be under the influence of a broad trof. The deep southwest flow will keep our area hot or normal for this time of the year, with highs into the 90s away from the beaches. While the models don't show discrete features yet, the daily instability and trof in the east is enough to continue a 30-40% chance of storms each day. While not a washout, highest chances likely will coincide will peak heating during the afternoon. By Tuesday a more summerlike pattern shapes up, with a bermuda high building westward and our heights will begin to rise, diminishing our rain chances but keeping us hot.

AVIATION /06Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. Short Term /through Tonight/ . As of 1240 AM Fri . VFR conts across rtes however most guidance show lower cigs building SW into the region thru daybreak. Confidence in this is low as most of the guidance is already overdone. Will cont mainly VFR til late then some sites may see period of sub VFR cigs thru early to mid morn. Any low clouds that do develop shld lift to VFR thru morn with sct cu this aftn with only very small chc of a shra/storm. VFR expected to cont thru tonight.

Long Term /Fri through Monday/ . As of 130 PM Thu . 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 /Through Tomorrow/ . As of 1240 AM Fri . Winds cont to diminish over the region as TS Fay moves further N of region. No change to SCA as 6 to 7 foot seas cont central and N wtrs.

Prev disc . TS Fay continues to lift north of the area this evening. Winds have been gradually diminishing late this evening and have dropped the SCA for the sounds and Alligator River, though could still see a few gusts to 25 kt across the far northern waters for the next few hours. Seas continue around 5-7 ft across the northern waters, which are expected to slowly subside overnight as Fay moves away from the area. Tomorrow, expect winds to be W/SW at 5-15 kts with seas subsiding to 3-5 ft.

Long Term /Fri through Monday/ . As of 3 AM Thu . Very similar wind speed and directions on the waters through the entire period, but our wave heights will vary quiet a bit. Small craft conditions due to increasing seas possible Sunday and Monday.

Southwest winds will prevail through the period at generally 10 to 20 kts. With a departing area of low pressure Friday seas will remain a bit elevated or 3 to 5 feet, decreasing a bit Saturday, 2 to 4. Swell will increase again Sunday and Monday with a prolonged steady southwest wind. Seas look to build to 4 to 6 feet all coastal waters, which may produce marginal small craft conditions due to wave heights.

MHX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. NC . Beach Hazards Statement through this evening for NCZ196- 203>205. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until 6 AM EDT early this morning for AMZ150-152-154.

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.
