Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 945 PM EDT Sun Sep 19 2021

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will build in from the north through early this week. A cold front slowly moves through on Thursday with dry high pressure building in late in the week through the weekend.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM MONDAY MORNING/. As of 940 PM Sun . Isold shra near Tar River have been slow to dissipate but do appear to be weakening. Will keep slight pop in this area another hour or so then shld be mainly dry overnight.

Prev disc . High pressure will continue to build in from the north, making for another mainly dry night, with only an isolated shower or two still possible along the US Hwy 64 corridor west of Columbia. Lows generally 65-70 deg. Patchy fog will be possible again Monday morning.

SHORT TERM /6 AM MONDAY MORNING THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/. As of 315 PM Sun . High pressure shifts off the New England coast tomorrow and tomorrow night, with onshore low level flow and strong mid level ridging persisting locally. Mainly dry conditions continue, with only a few showers coming off the western wall of the gulf stream and crossing the coastal waters, occasionally making it to shore. Highs reach the mid-80s, which is around normal, for most tomorrow given the mainly maritime airmass and partly cloudy skies. Mild temps again Monday night as low level WAA begins to trend up, with lows in the mid to upper 60s away from the beaches.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. As of 315 AM Sun . Dry weather to start the extended period with increasing rain chances by mid week with a strong but slow moving cold front. Above normal temps in the middle 80s through Wednesday, will cool back to near or even below seasonal norms by Thu through the weekend.

Tuesday . Mainly dry weather still expected during this time with weak ridging over our area. Slightly better chances for some sct rain showers will occur Tuesday as a veering onshore flow moistens the atmosphere, and a coastal trof provides some lift. Summer will be holding on through the period with highs in the middle 80s by day and into the upper 60s to lower 70s by night with warm and humid pattern.

Wednesday through Thursday . Some model disagreements in the speed of the next cold front, but overall thinking has not changed with regard to the Wednesday and/or Thursday time period being our best chance for rain over the next 7 days. Have inc pops through this period, with highest chances centered now on Wed night, then tapering off through the day Thu. Latest trends with 19/00Z ECM/CMC indicate a slower soln, which may have heaviest rain centered early Thursday, and have inc pops a bit into first part of Thu to account for the slower trend. The reason being is the trough deepens over the OH/MS Valleys, which slows progression of the upper low and attendant cold front, finally passing through ENC by late Thu. Periods of heavy rain possible as PW's surge to 2+ inches with deep srly flow.

Friday through Sunday . Cooler and drier air mass builds in with high pres oozing into the ern CONUS. Hts near climo or slightly below will lead to slightly lower than avg temps with highs generally around 80 and lows in the mid 50s interior to mid 60s beaches.

AVIATION /02Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. SHORT TERM /through Monday/ . As of 730 PM Sun . Tricky fcst as NAM shows widespread sub VFR cigs developing while bulk of guidance shows very little with some potential very late deep inland. Increasing onshore flow below a strengthening low to mid level inversion will bring the potential for lowering stratus overnight, but will lean toward majority of guidance and prev fcst with only deep inland sites poss have lower cigs late. Some patchy fog poss as well espcly inland. VFR returns within a couple of hours of sunrise Monday with sct to bkn CU expected with onshore flow.

LONG TERM /Monday Night through Friday/ . As of 315 AM Sun . Mainly VFR conditions expected through Tue. Sub VFR conditions develop Wed through first part of Thu as strong and slow moving cold front approaches and moves through the region bringing periods of showers.

MARINE. SHORT TERM /through Monday Night/ . As of 940 PM Sun . Fcst on track with NE winds mainly 10 to 15 kt and seas 2 to 4 ft overnight.

Prev disc . Moderate NE flow prevails tonight and Monday as high pressure moving across New England ridges down the coast. A moderate tightening of the gradient this evening could bring a brief period of gusts near 20 kt for the coastal waters and larger sounds, with 10-15 kt winds more prevalent otherwise. Flow becomes more easterly Monday night as the aforementioned high moves off the Northeast coast.

Seas remain around 3-4 ft through Monday night as the medium period NE swell gradually fades and modest easterly wind swell increases.

LONG TERM /Tuesday through Friday/ . As of 315 AM Sun . Fairly quiet and consistent conditions expected on the waters through the period, with mainly easterly component to the wind through the Tue.

Winds veer serly Wednesday ahead of a strong and slowly approaching cold front, then srly on early Thu just ahead of the front, becoming nwrly behind the front later Thu. Marginal SCA conditions may develop later Wed into Thu as winds veer to the south and inc to 15-20 kt with some higher gusts.

We may begin to see distant swells and higher seas after Thu with the possibility of a distant tropical system.
