Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 253 PM EDT Thu Sep 16 2021

SYNOPSIS. Moisture associated with an offshore tropical disturbance will continue to produce unsettled weather through Friday. High pressure builds in from the northwest late this weekend with drier weather expected early next week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. As of 245 PM Thursday . Weak disorganized low pres/trop disturbance will move N just off the coast tonight. Expect cont decent cvrg of shra for the coast espcly OBX with decreasing chcs of rain as move inland where moisture not as deep. Will cont high chc to low likely pops OBX with slight chc to chc most inland areas overnight. Deck of lows clouds expected to grad overspread the region overnight and in combo with light N winds inland shld limit threat for signif fog. Lows mostly 70 to 75.

SHORT TERM /FRIDAY/. As of 245 PM Thursday . The weak low/trop disturbance will move NNE and slowly away from the OBX late. Sct shra expected over OBX and NE tier in the morn. With a little heating expect sct shra and isold tsra to develop inland in the aftn and will cont chc pops all areas. Widespread clouds will be slow to lift and sct and that shld keep highs mainly in the 80 to 85 dgr range.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 315 AM Thursday . Unsettled for much of the long term but despite that, this continues to be a moderate to high PoP but low QPF event. This is unfortunate for as we continue to run 2 to 3 inches below normal rainfall for the month. As potential low development off the coast comes into clearer view, the low is in fact expected to strengthen slightly over the coming days but much of the precipitation associated with it will remain on the east side of the storm, well offshore. That being said a few bands of showers could make it to eastern NC and a few localized spots may be able to pick up some extra rainfall. As for the remnants of Nicholas, they remained largely pinned to the Deep South and the frontal system advancing from the west becomes progressively drier. For early next week, surface high pressure builds in over New England with some ridging at the surface and aloft that moves over eastern NC. This may help some return flow showers to move in along the coast but for the most part we may have to wait and see if more rainfall will come with the next frontal system at the end of next week. High temps remain in the mid to upper 80s each day with lows in the upper 60s to low 70s.

AVIATION /18Z THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. SHORT TERM /through Fri/ . As of 1215 PM Thursday . Pred VFR thru the evening with bulk of shra assoc with offshore low pres remaining E of taf sites. If a shra does cross a terminal impacts would be very brief. Overnight bulk of mdls show lower cigs grad spreading S and W across the terminals . expect MVFR init then late tonight thru early Fri a period of IFR expected. With NE flow cont Fri the cigs will be slow to lift but expect MVFR by late morn and likely VFR by mid aftn. Scattered shra expected in the aftn as well.

LONG TERM /Friday night through Monday/ . As of 315 AM Thursday . Periods of sub-VFR conditions are expected as precipitation chances increase late week and through the weekend. Fog/low stratus will be a factor, especially in locations that receive rain. Predominantly VFR conditions expected to return for Monday when high pressure builds into the area.

MARINE. SHORT TERM /through Fri/ . As of 245 PM Thursday . A tropical disturbance SE of Cape Lookout will lift N off the coast tonight and move NNE slowly away from the NE coast later Fri. Expect NE to N winds 10 to 20 kts with some gusts to 25 kts tonight with mainly N winds Fri with speeds diminishing a bit srn tier. These winds will build seas to 6 to 8 ft tonight into Fri and cont SCA for the coastal wtrs . looks like srn tier will have seas diminish below 6 ft twrd Fri evening.

LONG TERM /Friday night through Monday/ . As of 230 PM Thu . Update . 12Z run of wave guidance keeps seas elevated longer for the central and nrn wtrs and extended the SCA for these waters into Sat morn.

Prev disc . Small craft conditions will continue through Friday before beginning to subside late Friday night with northern waters the last to fall below criteria. Northerly flow slowly weakens Friday night, and then becomes mostly 10-15 kts out of the N and then NE through Monday. Seas come down to 3-5 ft Friday Night, and then will be 2-4 ft through Monday.

MHX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. NC . Beach Hazards Statement until 8 PM EDT this evening for NCZ196- 204-205. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until 11 AM EDT Saturday for AMZ152-154. Small Craft Advisory until 6 PM EDT Friday for AMZ156-158. Small Craft Advisory until 11 AM EDT Saturday for AMZ150.
