Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 121 AM EDT Thu Apr 2 2020

SYNOPSIS. Low pressure will move well off the North Carolina coast tonight. High pressure will build over the area late this week into the weekend, as low pressure lingers over the Atlantic.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THIS MORNING/. 1225 AM Thu . Reduced init temps to match current conditions and lowered mins a bit more with some mid 30s expected cooler inland spots.

As of 940 PM Wednesday . Skies have become mostly clear over most of the CWA at late evening, although some patchy clouds may reappear overnight per latest IR satellite. Some inland areas may decouple overnight and will continue to forecast below guidance temperatures in the upper 30s over northern and deep inland areas, ranging to the lower 40s over most of the remainder of the CWA. Despite the light to calm winds, advection of lower dewpoints into the area should preclude much in the way of fog. Overall, minimal change to the previous forecast on this update.

SHORT TERM /6 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH 6 PM TODAY/. As of 340 PM Wed . High pressure continues to build into the area from the northwest as low pressure stalls over the Atlantic. Continued cool/dry NW flow will prevail across the area. Skies will be mostly sunny with highs in the low to mid 60s.

LONG TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. As 3 PM Wed . High pressure will build over the area through late week into the weekend, as low pressure over the Atlantic retrogrades toward the east coast. A weak front will approach the area early next week. Temps will gradually moderate through the period.

Mostly dry weather expected through the weekend, with slightly better precip chances early next week. Temps near to slightly below climo through early weekend, then warming into the 70s inland late week into early next weekend as upper ridge strengthens over the Eastern US and flow becomes more southerly.A weak cold front will approach the area early next week. Will keep sc pops Sun night through Monday as moisture increases ahead of approaching boundary. Best precip chances may be Tuesday but confidence is low at this time.

Coastal concerns will continue along the Outer Banks this weekend, as low pressures over the Atlantic strengthens and retrogrades back towards the East Coast. Please see Coastal Flood section below for details.

AVIATION /06Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. Short Term /through Tonight/ . As of 1225 AM Thu . VFR shld dominate this period. Some patchy mid clouds poss nrn tier next few hours otherwise mainly clr skies thru rest of period. Winds have decoupled inland and temps are near dewpts so cant rule out brief patchy fog espcly at PGV. NW winds will increase with mixing from mid morning thru late aftn with gusts 15 to 20 kts.

Long Term /Fri through Monday/ . As of 340 PM Wed . Pred VFR conditions expected through the period.

MARINE. Short Term /through Thursday/ . As of 940 PM Wednesday . Have adjusted winds down in most locations based on current trends in the observations. Gale Warnings were dropped earlier over the waters north of Ocracoke and a SCA added as winds are generally at 15-25 knots with occasional higher gusts. Seas continue rough at 9-12 feet over the northern tier and 5-8 feet south. Very late tonight and Thursday winds will again increase to 15-25 kt as the Atlantic low begins to retrograde toward the east coast. Seas will subside to 6-10 ft late tonight and 5-8 ft Thursday.

Long Term /Thursday night through Monday/ . As of 3 AM Wed . Surface high pressure will build over the area Thursday night into the weekend, as low pressure strengthens over the Atlantic gradually retrograding back towards the East Coast. Will continue to see impacts from the low into early next week.

NW winds 15-25 kt Thu night with seas 5-8 ft. Gusty NNW winds 15-25 kt will continue Friday into early Sat as gradient tightens between the high and low. Increasing long period swell from distant low will begin to impact the waters Friday, peaking this weekend. Seas will build to 10-15 ft (possibly higher Sat and Sat night north of Ocracoke) with 14-15 sec periods. Winds will diminish to 5-15 kt Sunday, but seas will remain elevated at 5-11 ft. Prolonged SCA conditions expected into early next week.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. As of 340 PM Wed . N winds are diminishing late today and will continue to this evening lessening the coastal flood threat from the Pamlico Sound. Will let the current Advisories expire at 8 PM as winds decrease and low tide occurs. Seas near 13 ft this evening could result in some ocean overwash and beach erosion with the next high tide early Thu so will continue the High Surf Advisory until 7 AM Thu. Rough surf will also continue into early Thu along north of Hatteras.

Coastal concerns will continue along the Outer Banks this weekend, as low pressures over the Atlantic strengthens and retrogrades back towards the East Coast. Beaches will begin to see long period swell from the distant low arrive Friday, peaking Saturday and Saturday night. Confidence is increasing that the Outer Banks will see large powerful wave action and prolonged period of wave run up (double digit seas with periods 14-15 seconds), with the threats for very rough surf, coastal flooding, beach erosion and ocean overwash. Moderate to potentially significant impacts will be possible for ocean side locations of the Outer Banks. This could impact portions of Highway 12, especially at times of high tide.

MHX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. NC . High Surf Advisory until 7 AM EDT this morning for NCZ203-205. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until 3 PM EDT Sunday for AMZ150-152-154- 156-158.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
