Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 614 AM EST Mon Feb 17 2020

SYNOPSIS. Weak low pressure will move offshore today as high pressure builds in from the north. A warm front will lift north through the area late Tuesday. A cold front will cross the area Tuesday night into Wednesday. The front will stall just southeast of the region Wednesday night into Thursday allowing moisture to linger over Eastern NC. Cool high pressure will build over the area Friday into the weekend.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. As of 610 AM Mon . Rain is rapidly moving offshore with lingering low clouds and some fog over the region. Clouds and fog shld dissipate later this morn with decent amount of sun from late morn on leading to mild highs in the mid 50s N to 60 to 65 S.

Prev disc . Short wave aloft is crossing with weak sfc low developing just off the coast. As the low begins to slide E expect shield of shra to cont to grad push E and be mainly offshore by 12 to 13Z. As high pres builds in from the N today expect drier air to spread in with decreasing clouds. With some sun temps will be mild with mid 50s NE to lower 60s S. NNE winds will be a bit gusty central and srn beaches thru the morn.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 AM TUESDAY/. As of 230 AM Mon . As high pres drifts offshore to the N cstl trof/warm front will begin to approach late with increasing clouds. May see some shra near cst but bulk of region will remain dry. Lows will range from lower 40s well inland to lower 50s central and srn beaches.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. As of 330 AM Monday . Warm front will lift over the area tomorrow with unseasonably mild temperatures expected before another cold front quickly pushes across on Wednesday with showers/rain expected late tomorrow night into Wednesday morning. More rain is expected Thursday as a low rapidly develops along the front. Confidence is increasing in some wintry precip late Thursday night into Friday before high pressure takes control for the weekend.

Tuesday into Wednesday . An upper trough will dig from the upper MS valley northeast into southeastern Canada. A strong surface low will develop over the Great Lakes tomorrow, with strong high pressure offshore of the East Coast. The surface low will track northeast into New England tomorrow night, pushing a warm front north through the area, then dragging a cold front through the region Wednesday morning. Best chance for rain continues to be Tuesday night ahead of the cold front. Some mid-level dry air should prevent any appreciable rainfall during the day although a few coastal showers are probable with an offshore surface trough. Temps will be well above climo, with highs Tue in the lower 70s.

Sprawling high pressure over the Upper Midwest will build over the Carolinas late Wednesday gradually bringing an end to the precip threat from northwest to southeast. Temperature curve Wednesday will be nondiurnal with highs likely being realized around midnight before falling through much of the day with strong CAA aloft.

Thursday into Friday . High pressure building into the area from the north will usher colder air back into Eastern NC. The cold front is forecast to stall southeast of the area with low pressure developing along it for late next week as a strong shortwave trough dives southeast out of the upper MS valley. The event will be mainly rain during the day, but as the low exits off the coast more robust CAA is forecast in its wake with 850 mb temps falling below zero across the entire FA. There is still some spread in the global models regarding ptype issues although the ECMWF has come more on board with the potential for snow late Thursday night, in line with the GFS. The CMC continues to be an outlier with the UKMET still showing no snow potential. The ECMWF and GFS both have support in their respective ensembles and for this reason decided to add a mention of rain/snow into the forecast for Thursday night into Friday morning although specific details will need to be sorted out in the next few days. With warm ground temps accumulating snow is currently not anticipated save possibly grassier locations. Temperatures Thursday and Friday will hold in the 40s with only low 40s expected Friday. Lows both nights expected to fall into the 20s inland.

With prolonged 15-25 kt northeasterly flow over the sounds for the period with pinched pressure gradient, there is a concern for minor water rises/flooding for the typically susceptible Down East Carteret area and vicinity.

Saturday and Sunday . Drier weather takes control as high pressure shifts overhead, with temperatures expected to moderate into the 50s over the weekend.

AVIATION /12Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. Short Term /through 06Z Tue/ . As of 610 AM Mon . Widespread IFR/LIFR conts over the region this morn, mainly in low clouds. Guidance shows conditions transitioning thru MVFR to VFR mid to late this morn and expect VFR to cont thru this evening. Late tonight with light onshore flow expect some sub VFR will be poss and will have high end MVFR cigs in tafs for now.

Long Term /Tue Through Friday/ . As of 335 AM Monday . Prevailing VFR conditions expected during the morning Tuesday. Unsettled weather is expected from late Tuesday afternoon through Thursday as a series of low pressure systems move to the south of the area, resulting in periods of sub-VFR conditions. Some -SN may be briefly observed at sites late Thursday night as low pressure develops offshore. Cool high pressure rebuilds over the area Friday with VFR conditions expected.

MARINE. Short Term /through Tonight/ . As of 610 AM Mon . NNE Winds gusting 20 to 30 kts outer central/srn buoys and seas bouncing 5 to 6 ft so SCA cont. Winds likely peaking now and will maintain 15Z as ending time of SCA . later shifts can monitor trends for poss extension if needed.

Prev disc . Will issue a brief SCA for central and srn wtrs thru mid to late morn. Low pres is just off the cst and gusty SSW winds have led to some 6 ft seas at the buoy well SE of Cape Lookout. As pres grdnt tightens between departing weak low and building high pres expect NNE wind gusts to reach aoa 25 kts outer wtrs from Cape Hat S next several hours. These winds will likely keep threat of some 5 to 6 foot seas for wtrs between Cape Lookout and Cape Hatteras. Later today as the low moves further away winds will diminish to 10 to 20 kts highest srn tier. The high will slide offshore to the N tonight with winds becoming ENE 5 to 15 kts. Seas will drop to 3 to 5 feet this aftn and 2 to 4 ft tonight.

Long Term /Tue through Friday/ . As of 340 AM Monday . Winds veer southerly Tuesday morning as warm front lifts north across the waters, then to the north as cold front quickly crosses Wednesday. SCA conditions are likely starting overnight Wednesday as winds increase to 15-20 kt, increasing to 20-30 kt late Thursday with seas building to 8-10 feet. A period of Gales appears possible for the coastal waters and Pamlico Sound Thursday night and Friday morning.

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.
