Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 638 PM EST Fri Jan 22 2021

SYNOPSIS. Cool Canadian high pressure will build south over the Carolinas through the weekend. A warm front will lift north across the area Monday as strong low pressure passes by well to the west. High pressure will again build over the area Tuesday into Wednesday, before a strong coastal storm impacts the area late next week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SATURDAY MORNING/. As of 630 PM Friday . The latest satellite imagery is showing most of that persistent mid to high level clouds are finally moving offshore. So, expect the rest of the night to see clear skies across E NC. A dry cold front should move south of the area by around midnight with gusty N/NNW wind developing. Lows should be in the lower 30s for most of the area, except the mid 30s Outer Banks.

SHORT TERM /6 AM SATURDAY MORNING THROUGH 6 PM SATURDAY/. As of 345 PM Friday . Canadian high pressure will build south across the Carolinas with gusty N/NNW winds and chilly high temperatures, given strong cold air advection. Highs will in the mid 40s for most areas, except lower 40s over the northern Outer Banks region. Skies should be mostly sunny.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/. As of 300 AM Fri . Dry weather is expected through the weekend, with below normal temps. Then, a fairly complex storm system will move over the area Monday into Tuesday, bringing the potential for rain and gusty winds. Then high pressure will briefly build in on Wednesday, with another, stronger storm expected to impact the area Wednesday night into Thursday.

Saturday Night through and Sunday . Highs on Sunday will remain in the 40s. Very cold lows are expected Saturday night, as CAA eases enough for some decent radiational cooling to take place. Have lows down into the low to mid 20s inland, and the upper 20s to low 30s across the coast.

Monday through Wednesday . High pressure will shift offshore early Monday morning, as a complex low pressure system moves out of the lower Mississippi Valley. A warm front, with possible weak wave along it, will move over the area Monday morning through the afternoon, as the parent low tracks into the Ohio Valley. Expect very good coverage of rain most of the day Monday due to isentropic lift, and have increased PoPs to categorical. Late Monday, precip will become more scattered in the warm sector, until a new triple point area of low pressure strengthens along the NC/VA border and tracks to the east. Best chances for rain Monday night will therefore be along the northern tier and over to the NOBX, until the cold front pushes across the area Tuesday, bringing another round of showers to most areas. Since the area will be in the warm sector, we will see temps reaching the 50s to low 60s on Monday, and then 60s to almost 70s on Tuesday. Behind this system Tuesday night, temps will crash into the 30s, with highs only in the 40s expected on Wednesday with high pressure building in.

Wednesday Night and Thursday . There is modest, but increasing confidence that another area of low pressure will move into the region Wednesday night, and then deepen rapidly off the NC coast on Thursday. Model solutions have up until now, been wildly erratic, however the latest 00z cycle of the ECMWF and GFS (and others), have come into much better agreement showing a potential bomb cyclone somewhere off the NC coast. The location of this low will be critical to determining impacts to the area, which could possibly include snow, heavy rain, very strong winds, and coastal flooding. The evolution of this system will be closely monitored.

AVIATION /00Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. Short Term /through 18Z Saturday/ . As of 630 PM Friday . High confidence in VFR conditions will dominate the TAF period. Most all the persistent mid to high level clouds have moved south of all TAF sites . leading to mostly clear skies through the overnight. A dry front will push through late tonight, and winds will shift to the NW as a dry airmass builds in. VFR conditions will continue through tomorrow with gusts up to 15-20 kts by mid morning. Gusty winds are expected to subside by late afternoon.

Long Term /Saturday Night through Wednesday/ . As of 330 AM Fri . VFR conditions are expected through Monday morning with high pressure and mostly dry weather over the airspace. A large storm system will move into the area on Monday into Tuesday, with sub-VFR conditions likely at times.

MARINE. Short Term /Tonight and Saturday/ . As of 635 PM Friday . The latest buoy observations are showing west winds continue on area waters at 10-15 knots with seas 3-4 feet. A dry cold front will cross the waters around 02z-05z tonight with winds veering form W to NW/N and increasing to 15-20 knots. Gradient increases more for Saturday into Saturday over the northern tier and have initiated a Small Craft Advisory for the waters north of Ocracoke from 16z Saturday into early Sunday morning. Seas will build to up to 6 feet in the SCA area by midday Saturday.

Long Term /Saturday Night through Wednesday/ . As of 330 AM Fri . Small craft conditions are likely Saturday night behind a dry cold front with winds NNW 15-25 kts, and seas 4-6 ft. NNW slowly subside by Sunday morning with winds becoming NW around 10 kts Sunday, and seas 2-4 ft. Then, as a warm front crosses the area Monday, winds will increase to S/SW 15-25 kts, and then further strengthening to 25-30 kts Monday night, with seas building to 6-12 ft late. Winds will subside slightly on Tuesday, but remain W 15-25 kts, with seas remaining elevated.

MHX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. NC . None. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory from 11 AM Saturday to 7 AM EST Sunday for AMZ150-152-154.

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.
