Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 114 AM EDT Mon Apr 6 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will move offshore tonight. A weak cold front will drop south into the region later Monday, then lift back north of the area Tuesday. A mainly dry cold front will move through the area Thursday. A stronger low pressure area and cold front may impact the region next weekend.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THIS MORNING/. As of 940 PM Sun . High pres gradually slides off the coast tonight. Light SE winds along with some sct thin cirrus will keep overnight lows milder with most areas creeping above climo with readings generally in the low 50s.

Winds shift Wrly as high pressure sets up off the coast of GA, positioning us on the northern side and providing enhanced WAA and moisture advection during the day Monday. Afternoon highs will tap into the 80s for some inland locations with 70s along the coast. TD's will rise into the low 60s on the coast. More summery pattern develops with sea breeze developing by afternoon. At the same time, a backdoor front will sink over the northern tier of the CWA. Hi-res guidance shows sct showers with a few tstorms as a result developing mid-to- late afternoon. Sufficient wind shear in the 30+ kt range along with 1000 J/kg of CAPE may be enough for a strong to marginally severe storm to form.

SHORT TERM /6 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH 6 PM TODAY/. As of 950 PM Sun . Sct shwrs and any remaining tstorms will move SEwrd out to sea by sometime midnight. The backdoor cold front will linger over the NErn counties for the night, keeping overnight lows in the low-to-mid 50s NE with lows in the SW counties in the upper 50s.

LONG TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/. As 330 AM Sun . Warm conditions Tuesday will give way to drier and hotter weather Wednesday and Thursday. A cold front will cross the area Thursday into Friday, bringing cooler temperatures for next weekend.

Tuesday . The backdoor front will retreat north Tuesday morning, and southerly flow will strengthen. As a surface low strengthens over the western Great Lakes, a subtle boundary or warm front will move through the area during the day which could spark some scattered showers or thunderstorms. It will be warm once again with highs in the low 80s inland, and low to mid 70s along the coast.

Wednesday and Thursday . High pressure will more closely influence the area Wednesday, which should keep conditions dry. There are some hints that a backdoor front will briefly move into the area overnight into Thursday morning, but it would not last long as flow strengthens Thursday ahead of a cold front. Mid and even low level dryness will continue Thursday which should yield dry conditions despite temperatures reaching the low to mid 80s inland both days. Closer to the coast expect highs to reach the mid to upper 70s.

Thursday Night through Saturday . A mostly dry cold front will push through the area sometime Thursday night or Friday morning, bringing with it a return to cooler more spring like weather. High pressure building in behind the front Saturday will lead to continued dry conditions. Expect high temperatures mostly in the 60s, and possibly 50s along the NE NC coast due to winds coming off the cold Atlantic.

AVIATION /05Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. Short Term /through Tuesday Morning/ . As of 115 AM Mon . VFR conditions expected for the short term, though some brief periods of sub-VFR conditions are possible late this afternoon and evening, as scattered to widespread showers and thunderstorms develop over the area. Most precip will diminish by late this evening, but some VFR ceilings will continue overnight.

Long Term /Monday through Thursday/ . As of 340 AM Sun . Some periods of sub-VFR conditions will be possible Monday as scattered showers and thunderstorms develop over the airspace. Scattered precip chances continue Tuesday afternoon, and then dry weather is expected Wednesday and Thursday.

MARINE. Short Term /through Monday night/ . As of 1000 PM Sun . Fcst remains on track from prev disc.

Prev disc . Used a blend of the WWIV and NWPS, as NWPS initialized a bit too high. Large swells will slowly subside through the period, ending late tonight for the srn waters. The high seas will linger through Monday nrn/ctrl waters, finally dropping below 6 ft nrn waters by early Mon evening. Ended SCA for ctrl waters later Mon evening as large swell energy finally subsides below 6 ft. Winds will be relatively light through the period, generally 5-15 kts.

Long Term /Tuesday through Thursday/ . As of 350 AM Sun . WSW to SSW winds strengthen again Tuesday night and Wednesday to 15-25 kts, with seas remaining 4-7 ft. A weak front may briefly move into the area Thursday, with winds staying around 10-20 kts and seas 3-5 ft.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. As of 1000 PM Sun . No changes from prev disc.

Prev disc . Will cont the High Surf Advisory north of Cape Hatteras. Although swells appear marginal at 6 to 8 ft did have reports of some localized overwash during last high tide. If swell drops quicker than fcst later shifts may be able to drop the advisory sooner but will leave up thru next few high tides cycles ending Mon morning.

MHX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. NC . High Surf Advisory until 8 AM EDT this morning for NCZ203-205. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until 2 AM EDT Tuesday for AMZ152-154. Small Craft Advisory until 6 AM EDT early this morning for AMZ156-158. Small Craft Advisory until 6 PM EDT this evening for AMZ150.

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.
