Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 621 PM EST Fri Mar 5 2021

SYNOPSIS. High pressure builds into the region through the weekend and becomes centered over the area early next week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SATURDAY MORNING/. As of 610 PM Fri . High pressure will continue to ridge in from the northwest tonight, with a almost stationary upper level trough to our north. Northwesterly flow will become almost calm early tonight, but a secondary surge of cold air will cause winds to pick up again overnight. So temperatures are expected to cool fairly rapidly this evening into the upper 30s to low 40s, and then as winds pick up temps will remain steady or rise a couple of degrees overnight, before continuing to fall early tomorrow morning as CAA bring colder air into region. Have lows in the upper 20s to low 30s inland, with mid 30s expected right along the coast.

SHORT TERM /6 AM SATURDAY MORNING THROUGH 6 PM SATURDAY/. As of 4 PM Friday . With high pressure building south across the region, Saturday will be partly to mostly sunny with a decent amount of high cloud cover around. With a light WNW/NW breeze, temperatures will be fairly uniform, in the lower to mid 50s area-wide.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/. As of 245 AM Thu . Mostly dry weather expected through the period. Below normal temps to start off, with temperatures gradually moderating next week.

Saturday Night through Sunday . High pressure will build over the area with cool and dry weather expected. Low pressure will develop off the SE coast this weekend. Guidance continues to show excellent run to run consistency and agreement with low track, keeping it well suppressed off the SE coast. Low level thickness values support highs in the mid 40s to low 50s with mostly sunny skies. Good radiational cooling set up each night with clear skies and calm winds. Main change was to lower forecast lows a few degrees. Lows in the upper 20s to low 30s each night, with most locations dropping below freezing.

Monday through Thursday . The surface high will crest over the area Mon and Tue with continued dry weather and moderating temps with highs in the 50s Mon and 60s Tue. High pressure will shift off the coast Wednesday ahead of the next approaching frontal system. Will keep forecast dry late week with still some uncertainty with timing of the next front. Temps will continue to warm as flow becomes SW mid week. Highs back into the mid 60s and 70s.

AVIATION /23Z FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. Short Term /Through Saturday Evening/ . As of 620 PM Fri . VFR conditions are expected through the TAF period as high pressure remains in place over the region. Clear skies this evening will eventually give way to some high based cirrus clouds overnight and continuing into tomorrow morning. Otherwise light NW winds continue.

Long Term /Saturday Night through Wednesday/ . As of 245 AM Thu . Pred VFR conditions expected through the period with high pressure in control.

MARINE. Short Term /Tonight and Saturday/ . As of 400 PM Friday . Even though the northerly winds are in the 15-20 knot range, seas continue to hover around 6-7 feet off the northern waters. As a result, have extended the SCA north of Ocracoke through 8 pm tonight. Beyond 8 pm, seas should subside below 6 feet. A weak mini-surge may bring winds to 15-20 knots again at times overnight, but seas should stay below SCA criteria. For Saturday, winds will be mostly NW at 10-15 knots with seas 2-4 feet.

Long Term /Saturday Night through Wednesday/ . As of 245 AM Thu . Gradient tightens Sunday as low pressure passes well southeast of the waters. A few gusts to 25 kt will be possible across the outer central waters Sunday and Sunday evening, with seas building to 3-5 ft. Moderate northerly winds continue Mon morning diminishing to 5-15 kt by afternoon and seas subsiding to 2-4 ft.
