Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 145 AM EDT Tue Jul 14 2020

SYNOPSIS. A weak front will cross the area this evening and move offshore tonight. The front will linger to our south through late week as Bermuda high pressure builds in from the east for the next several days.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THIS MORNING/. As of 930 PM Monday . Most of the showers and thunderstorms have dissipated for the evening with the loss of daytime heating. Lowered POPs for the late evening to just a schc, but should stay mostly dry overnight. With clear skies expected and wet surface, some patchy fog may develop early Tuesday AM and burn off promptly at sunrise. Lows will be in the low to mid 70s by morning.

SHORT TERM /6 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH 6 PM WEDNESDAY/. As of 940 PM Monday . Weak ridging builds from the SW across the region tomorrow, setting up a standard summer day in Eastern NC. Uniform temperatures expected for Tuesday with highs 90-92 in most areas, except mid/upper 80s Outer Banks. Isolated showers and thunderstorms may develop along the sea breeze in the afternoon, thus kept a schc POP for the area.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 330 PM Mon . Upper level ridging continues over the Carolinas through midweek, again leaving the primary focus for afternoon convection on the sea breeze. Highs in the upper 80s to low 80s each day. Lows in the mid to upper 70s.

Late week, a surface low develops over the Ohio Valley and pushes northeastward through New England, eventually dragging a front into North Carolina for the weekend. Models generally agree on timing but that is about where the comparison ends as the GFS spins up the system quickly and is more robust throughout the rest of the run. In its wake, a relative surface high develops over the Ohio valley and helps push convection with the front into North Carolina. By contrast, the ECMWF solution is not as strong and doesn't develop this feature. Therefore it is weaker and slower with the surface low, and the associated front has a hard time making it into eastern NC. Will handle for now with chance PoPs until more details evolve. Regardless, it will continue to be warm with highs around 90 and lows in the mid 70s.

AVIATION /06Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. Short Term /through tonight/ . As of 130 AM Tuesday . Patchy fog has formed early this morning mainly south of US Hwy 70, where the highest ground moisture and clear skies/calm winds are prevailing. Expect patchy fog to occur across the inner coastal plain through dawn. Although the fog could be dense at times, light fog is generally expected to prevail. Have opted to prevail MVFR visibilities at ISO, OAJ, and PGV, with a tempo for IFR at OAJ and ISO around dawn.

After sunrise, light winds and VFR conditions prevail as clear skies through the late morning give way to a scattered cumulus deck by the afternoon. Though a few showers or thunderstorms are possible across the region this afternoon, chances are too low to justify a mention in the TAFs at this point.

Long Term /Wednesday through Saturday/ . As of 4 PM Monday . VFR expected through much of the long term aside from sea breeze convection during the afternoons and an associated chance of fog during the early morning hours where rain occurs. By the end of the week attention will turn to an approaching front that may bring an increased chance of showers and storms to the area. With this will come a better chance for adverse aviation conditions.

MARINE. Short Term /Tonight and Tuesday/ . As of 340 PM Monday . Winds at late afternoon are SW 10-15 knots with a few higher gusts with seas 2-4 feet north and 3-5 feet central and southern waters. Based on trends, have cancelled all SCA's for area waters. Winds should generally be SW/W overnight and Tuesday with seas dropping back to 2-4 feet for most areas Tuesday as weak ridging builds over area waters.

Long Term /Tuesday Night through Saturday/ . As of 400 PM Mon . A period of variable wind directions is expected Tuesday night and Wednesday, then southerly winds should prevail through much of the rest of the forecast period with seas around 2 feet.

MHX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. NC . Beach Hazards Statement from 6 AM EDT this morning through this evening for NCZ195-196-199-204-205. MARINE . None.
