Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 933 AM EDT Tue May 26 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will continue to build in from the north while sliding offshore today. A trough of low pressure will move inland from the coast mid to late week and bring unsettled conditions to Eastern North Carolina. A cold front will cross this weekend followed by high pressure early next week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. As of 930 AM Tuesday . Minimal changes planned for this update. Will remove fog as vsbys are all above 7nm across the region. Low stratus continues across our CWA and will only thin marginally this afternoon, leaving a mostly cloudy forecast for the remainder of the day. The best chance for sunshine will occur in the far northeastern counties where drier air above 700 mb may mix down and dissipate the lower cloud deck. High- resolution guidance continues to indicate minimal precipitation chances except for perhaps a few stray showers along the coast coast as weak surface trough moves toward the coast later today. Highs temperatures should mainly be in the mid to upper 70s, except cooler 68-72 degrees along the central and northern Outer Banks.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 AM WEDNESDAY/. As of 605 AM Monday . The coastal trough of low pressure is forecast to move north to be located along the immediate coast south of Cape Hatteras by 12Z Wed as the associated surface low moves into South Carolina. The best chance of rain with this system will occur south of Highway 70 late tonight. Otherwise it will be mostly cloudy and mild with lows in the mid to upper 60s.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 315 AM Tuesday . A deep SW flow bringing abundance amount of moisture will leading to a wet pattern through the end of the week. Then a cold front will approach the area and push through late Saturday night into Sunday morning with high pressure building in and providing drier and cooler weather for early next weather.

Wednesday through Thursday . The mid to upper level ridge will continue to dominate across the Eastern CONUS as a broad trough settles over the Southern Plains with a mid to upper low cutoff from the flow and gradually wobbling eastward. This will lead to a deep SW flow bringing an abundance amount of moisture into the Carolinas. Meanwhile, at the sfc, a coastal trough becomes more define along the Southeast coast with a weak low developing around GA/SC and moving northward along the sfc trough axis. The synoptic setup will lead to widespread rain with heavy downpours at times as ENC will be in the region with good upper-level divergence, 850 mb moisture transport, and PWAT values above 2.00". Models are suggesting some instability to current, so we cannot rule out embedded thunderstorms. By Thursday, the sfc low will becoming an open wave, but the moisture fetch continues, but an increase of instability occurs . leading to more thunderstorms in the Thursday afternoon. WPC has the most of the area in a marginal risk Excessive Rainfall Outlook (ERO) with a slight risk across our southern zone. In general, if rainfall amounts increases, there can be a concern for flooding across our southern zones where soils are saturated.

Friday through Saturday . While the highest PWAT values lifts northward, PWATs will still remain btw 1.75 and 2.00". The deep SW flow will continue on Friday, though it starts to break down due to a northern stream shortwave diving down into the Northeast states, while a cold front is approaching the region from the NW. Scattered to widespread showers and afternoon thunderstorm will be possible as instability will be the greatest on both day, while on Saturday, shear increases in to around 30 kt.

Sunday through Tuesday . The cold front is forecasted to be offshore by Sunday morning, leading to high pressure building in and clouds clearing out late in the day. The high pressure will bring cooler and drier weather for the beginning of next week.

AVIATION /14Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. Short Term /through Tonight/ . As of 630 AM Tuesday . Next 24 hrs looks to be similar to past 24 hrs. Widespread low clouds with mainly IFR ceilings early this morning will improve to VFR in the aftn. More sub-VFR ceilings will will be possible tonight with MVFR ceilings developing after midnight and IFR ceilings possible by 9Z Wed. A few showers will also be possible overnight as trough of low pressure approaches the coast.

Long Term /Wednesday through Saturday/ . As of 315 AM Tuesday . A wet-pattern starts Wednesday leading to mostly MVFR conditions through the period. Scattered to widespread rain will occur Wednesday and Thursday as tropical moistures lifts into the area which will lead to MVFR conditions with brief IFR. Additional scattered showers with embedded thunderstorms continues Friday and Saturday.

MARINE. Short Term /through Tonight/ . As of 930 AM Tuesday . Winds on the coastal waters and sounds are NNE/NE at 15 knots or less at mid morning with seas running 3-4 feet. No big changes needed to the current forecast on this update. A trough of low pressure will take shape offshore later today and link up with low pressure developing along or just east of the Florida coast. The trough will then move north toward the coast late tonight. Current NE winds will veer to E this afternoon then SE 10-15 kt late tonight. Seas will be 3-4 ft all waters through the period.

Long Term /Wednesday through Saturday/ . As of 315 AM Tuesday . SE winds 10-20 kt Wednesday, then veering to the south on Thursday and finally becoming SW Friday night ahead of the approaching cold front. Seas will build quickly to 4-6 ft Wednesday and peak to 5-7 ft south of Oregon Inlet Wednesday night into Thursday. Seas will slowly subside Friday, but the central water is expected to remain at 6 ft through Saturday. Small Craft Advisory will be in effect starting Wednesday afternoon--south of Oregon Inlet.

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.
