Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 933 AM EDT Sun Sep 27 2020

SYNOPSIS. Weak high pressure will build over the area today and tonight. A slow moving cold front will approach the area early this week and move through Wednesday night and early Thursday. Cooler high pressure expected to build over the area late week and next weekend.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. As of 930 AM Sun . High pressure surface and aloft was located over NC this morning and will persist into this evening. Widespread radiational fog and low stratus continues to plague the area this morning, with vsbys ranging from 1/4-1 mile. Although the DFA was allowed to expire at 9 AM, we have issued SPS/MWS statements valid until 11 AM for continued local poor visibilities. There should be rapid improvement in visibilities around 10 AM as convective mixing begins to scour out the low levels. The low ceilings however, will linger into early afternoon with expected weak convective mixing. An isolated shower is possible this afternoon, but given deep layer dry air, subsidence aloft and lack of forcing will keep mention of pops out of forecast at this time. Low level thickness values support temps near climo, with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 AM MONDAY/. As of 3 AM Sun . Shortwave will push through the area tonight and may be enough to support isolated to scattered showers. Some guidance keeps the area dry, while others like the EC, NAM and HRRR show an area of light showers moving in from the SW and pushing through the area overnight. Will continue sc to low chance pops with light qpf amts. Overnight lows in the mid to upper 60s. Think increasing clouds should limit fog potential.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 330 AM Sun . Unsettled with temps near or slightly above climo through mid next week, then cooler and drier late next week.

Monday . Weak high pressure and upper ridge will be tempo in place, leading to mainly dry weather with warm and humid conditions. Could see an iso to widely sct shower impinge on the Coastal Plain counties the second half of the day as PW's begin to surge, but main forcing for ascent will remain west of the region through the day.

Monday night through Wednesday . The upper flow is forecast to become more amplified next week with an Eastern upper trough deepening across the MS River Valley. The leading edge of the trough will be associated with a strong surface cold front which will move slowly across the Mid- Atlantic, producing scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms. Models continue to converge into better agreement with the synoptic pattern and timing of the sfc features. Complex pattern expected, as cut off low develops at the base of digging trough over the TN Valley and then pivoting through the southeastern states. This feature will move through the SE US Wed inducing sfc cyclogenesis along the front in the Carolinas, then becoming vert stacked as it lifts up the Mid- Atlantic and NE coast Thu. A variety of weather impacts possible with this scenario, including heavy rain with localized flooding, and a potential severe weather threat. Details on mesoscale features have yet to be worked out, with ECM soln indicating heaviest axis of rain across the Piedmont of the Carolinas, while the GFS brings heaviest precip shield through E NC with at least several inches of storm total rainfall. Nevertheless, enough model agreement amongst global models, as well as their respective ensembles, to raise pops to 60-70% for the period later Mon night through early Wed. Temps will be warm and humid this period with highs in the lower 80s with lows in the upr 60s to low 70s.

Thursday through Saturday . Drier and cooler air will filter in behind the front late week into next weekend with troughing aloft and sfc high building in. Highs in the 70s with lows in the 50s this period.

AVIATION /14Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Short Term /through tonight/ . As of 645 AM Sun . High confidence in widespread IFR/LIFR conditions this morning with areas of dense fog and low stratus. Most sites reporting LIFR, given the calm winds and abundant low level moisture in place. Conditions may drop below airport minimums at times early this morning. Cigs expected to lift to MVFR by mid morning with VFR conditions returning in the afternoon. Patchy fog and low clouds will be possible overnight and early Monday morning, but think increasing mid level clouds will limit development.

Long Term /Mon through Thu/ . As of 330 AM Sun . Mainly VFR after some morning fog on Mon as high pres will be in control. Sub-VFR chances increase later Mon night and esp Tue and Wed as widespread showers with embedded thunderstorms affect the region ahead of a slow moving cold front. VFR and mo sunny returns by Thu.

MARINE. Short Term /through tonight/ . As of 930 AM Sun . Main concern this morning is areas of dense marine fog which are expected to dissipate rapidly after 10 AM.

Latest obs show light NW/N winds 5-10 kt with seas 2-4 ft. Weak high pressure will continue over the waters today into tonight and other than the fog this morning, expect excellent conditions across the waters. Winds will be backing through the day, becoming S/SW by afternoon and remaining 10 kt or less. Seas 2-4 ft today will be subsiding to 2-3 ft tonight.

Long Term /Monday through Thursday/ . As of 330 AM Sun . Monday continues with good boating conditions with winds generally 10 kt or less and seas 2-4 ft. A cold front will slowly approach the waters Tue, likely not pushing through until mid week. S/SW 10-20 kt Tue increasing to 15-25 kt Tue night into Wed night with higher gusts. Confidence is increasing that waters will see a period of SCA conditions beginning Tue as seas respond by building 6+ ft. Conditions will begin to improve on Thu as winds become wrly and diminish, with high seas following suit.
