SYNOPSIS
High pressure shifts offshore tonight with troughing developing in the lee of the Appalachians. A front approaches on Monday, with another front affecting the region on Thursday.

NEAR TERM /OVERNIGHT/
As of 10 PM Sat...Everything is tracking well this evening as of this update. The ongoing FEW/SCT deck of mid level clouds should increase in coverage and lower over the next few hours with the potential for low stratus to develop after 2AM across portions of SW'rn ENC.

Prev Disc...A modest increase in southerly flow should help to pull the plume of better quality moisture north through all of ENC tonight. Any diurnal showers will wane quickly with loss of heating this eve, and a dry fcst in effect overnight. Fog not expected tonight, as bndry layer should remain mixed enough with 5+ kt winds expected, though low stratus may form once again, esp w of Hwy 17.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY/
As of 333 PM Sat...The aforementioned sswrly flow will cont to bring hot and humid air to the region. Latest indications are heat indices remain around the ~100 degree mark or so, possible a degree or 3 higher for a couple hours, though below heat adv threshold, so no headlines expected. Later shifts may opt for SPS to highlight the hot/humid conditions. A few showers or perhaps a storm are possible, esp inland in the afternoon, though no big forcing feature is available to warrant higher than 20-30% tomorrow. Highs range from the mid 90s interior to 80s coast. With the inc gradient, it will become quite gusty in the afternoon with sswrly winds gusting 20-25 mph (see fire wx section below).

LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/
As of 4 AM Sat...An extended period of heat and humidity is expected for Eastern NC this week with highs reaching the mid to upper 90s, and heat indices topping 100 degrees almost every afternoon, and exceeding 105 degrees at times. There will also be some decent chances (40-50%) for showers and thunderstorms Monday and Thursday/Thursday night as two weak fronts move into the area.

Monday...A cold front will move south into the area Sunday night, and then slowly push through the area Monday into Monday night. There remains lower confidence on the evolution of showers and thunderstorms Monday ahead of the front, with mixed solutions from forecast guidance. Will maintain a 40-50% precip outlook, but note the potential for higher rain chances for at least a portion of the day Monday.

A hot and humid airmass will persist across the area, but the somewhat unknown extent of shower and cloud coverage casts some doubt on how hot it will get Monday afternoon. With that in mind there is again potential for highs to reach the mid 90s inland, and the low 90s along the coast, with heat indices peaking 100-105 degrees again.

Tuesday through Friday...Behind the weak cold front, slightly cooler and drier high pressure will temporarily build in Tuesday, especially along the coast where onshore flow will keep temps mostly in the 80s. Farther inland the maritime flow will moderate, and expect temps here to again climb into the low to mid 90s. A few isolated sea breeze showers and thunderstorms will possible as well.

Southerly flow quickly rebuilds Wednesday with low level thicknesses rising as well. This will likely end up being the hottest day of the week as temps soar into the mid to upper 90s inland, and low 90s along the coast. Thankfully the drier airmass will take time to moisten and humidity levels will be relatively moderate, leading to heat indices "only" rising into the low 100s to around 105.

Increasing moisture on Thursday ahead of the next weak cold front will bring higher humidities, but also the threat of scattered to potentially numerous showers and thunderstorms (40-50% chance). Temperatures will again climb into the 90s, but will increasing cloud cover expected, afternoon highs will likely top out in the low to mid 90s across the area. However increasing humidity will bring heat indices up to 100-105 degrees in the afternoon.

The cold front may stall across southern NC Friday and lead to somewhat unsettled conditions again. Either way slightly cooler temps are likely with heat indices remaining below 100 degrees.

AVIATION /02Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/
SHORT TERM /through Sunday/...
As of 705 PM Sat...Not significant change to the forecast for tonight and Sunday. Primarily VFR conditions expected through at least midnight tonight with low stratus possible once again late tonight into early Sun morning. We will remain well mixed enough to preclude a fog threat, but IFR stratus is still forcast tonight, mainly after 06Z especially for our SW'rn zones and western terminals. Any low stratus quickly scatters and lifts by morning (12-14Z), and winds increase Sunday afternoon, with gusts around 15 to 20 kt after 18Z.

LONG TERM /Sunday night through Wednesday/...
As of 4 AM Sat...Generally VFR conditions should exist outside of convection this week which will be most widespread Monday through the evening. Strong SW winds develop Sunday with winds gusting 20-30 mph.

MARINE
SHORT TERM /through Sunday/...
As of 333 PM Sat...Moderately gusty sswrly winds expected through this evening as gradient cont to tighten. Expect sustained 10-20 kt through tonight, with seas 2-4 ft cont. On Sun, gradient inc further ahead of approaching cold front, with 15-25 kt gusting to 30 by afternoon. Have hoisted SCA headlines all waters, rivers, and sounds, as good mixing produces gusts above 25 kt for even the inland rivers. Seas build towards 6 ft by late in the day Sun but esp Sun evening.

LONG TERM /Sunday night through Wednesday/...
As of 4 AM Sat...Small craft conditions ongoing through Monday morning with seas 5-7 ft. Winds will gradually decrease Monday as the front moves into the waters, but some 25 kt winds may continue across the southern waters south of Cape Hatteras. The front will move through the waters Monday night with winds turning to the N at 5-10 kts behind it. Expect winds to be NE 5-15 kts Tuesday, and then SE at 5-15 kts Wednesday. Seas will subside to 3-5 ft by Monday evening, and then will become mostly 2-3 ft Tuesday and Wednesday.

FIRE WEATHER
As of 333 PM Saturday...

- Elevated fire concerns possible Sunday

Southerly winds increase on Sunday, with gusts of 20-25 mph expected by afternoon. RH will continue to increase, and is forecast to only bottom out in the 40s and 50s on Sunday and Monday. While not a typical fire danger type of day on Sunday, the breezy conditions and drier fine fuels is noteworthy, especially for any fire that manages to develop, or any ongoing fires. Wetting rainfall is still possible on Monday and again Thursday.
