Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 431 PM EST Fri Jan 28 2022

SYNOPSIS. Rapidly deepening low pressure system passing well offshore will impact the area through tomorrow. High pressure will build back over the area late weekend and early next week. The next storm system will approach mid to late next week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. As of 330 PM Fri . The upper trough is pushing across the South with 1008mb low pressure analyzed around 250 mi SE of Charleston. The low will deepen while lifting north off the southeast coast tonight passing approx 150 mi E of Cape Hatteras late tonight. Moisture advecting ahead of the low is currently bringing light showers across coastal sections this afternoon. A cold rain will continue through the evening with best chances along the coast and locations west of Highway 17 may not see much precip. Liquid QPF amounts will be around a quarter to half an inch east of Highway 17 and up to 3/4 inch across the OBX. Will begin to see the Ptype transition to snow late this evening and after midnight but at the same time the heaviest precip will be lifting north/moving offshore limiting the amount of snow accumulation. A lull in precip is expected after midnight with the best chance for area wide snow showers coming late as the upper trough begins to transition the area. However, QPF amounts will be light with limited snow accumulation, generally less than an inch. N to NW winds will increase overnight as the low deepens offshore with gusts around 25 to 35 mph along the coast. Temps will fall into the 30s this evening and lows in the upper 20s around daybreak.

SHORT TERM /SATURDAY/. As of 4 PM Fri . Rapidly deepening Low pressure lift offshore to the New England coast Saturday with the upper trough pushing across the region bringing strong forcing but moisture will be limited by this point. Snow showers will continue across most of ENC through the morning hours but accumulations remain limitedwith most of the area receiving less than an inch of snow. Far northern sections expected to receive the greatest storm total accumulation and could see locally 1 to 2" along the Highway 64 corridor. The trough moves offshore during the afternoon with snow showers tapering off. Gradient winds continue to strengthen as the low bombs off the Mid-Atlantic coast with gusts up to 45 mph possible across the OBX and continue the wind advisory for the OBX from Ocracoke Island northward. The strong NWly winds will also bring increased water levels across portions of the OBX and more information can be found in the Tides/Coastal Flooding section below. Strong CAA all day with little change in temps with only into the mid 30s with wind chill values holding in the teens and 20s all day.

It is also worth noting that, dependent on how long the snowfall persists into the day Saturday as the gradient is tightening along the Northern Outer Banks, strong wind gusts over 35 mph and falling/blowing snow may combine to reduce visibilities to 1/4 mile or less at times.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 330 AM Fri . Strong CAA continues Saturday night, bringing one of the coldest nights of the season. Lows will reach well into the teens for most of the area, with lower 20s for the beaches, with wind chill values in the lower teens or upper single digits, especially for areas that received accumulating snowfall. At these temperatures, any wet surface will freeze, and black ice and slick roads will be a concern.

High pressure builds in from the south Sunday and Monday, then from the north Tuesday, keeping a dry conditions in place and allowing temps to slowly moderate.

The high then slides off the Northeast coast mid to late week as low pressure rides up the Appalachians. This will bring WAA locally, with Wednesday and Thursday shaping up to be two of the warmer days in the last several weeks. Rainfall chances return to the forecast with the arrival of the more moist airmass, but significant timing differences with the arrival of the best lift ahead of an approaching cold front justifies no more than chance POPs Wednesday through the end of the workweek for the time being.

AVIATION /20Z FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. SHORT TERM /through Saturday/ . As of 140 PM Fri . High pressure will begin eroding today as an amplified mid level trough develops a coastal low off the SE coast. Mid and high clouds will inc through the evening with conditions deteriorating overnight. MVFR conditions expected to develop late tonight, then likely becoming widespread IFR early Sat morning. Scattered rain showers this evening and the first part of tonight grad changing over to light snow early Sat morning. All terminals could see a brief period of light snow Sat morning. Conditions will grad improve likely becoming VFR towards 18z. Nrly flow will strengthen and turn NNW Saturday AM, gusting to 15-25 kts through the day.

LONG TERM /Saturday night through Wednesday/ . As of 4 AM Fri . VFR then prevails Saturday night through early next week as high pressure remains in control.

MARINE. SHORT TERM /through Friday night/ . As of 415 PM Fri . Rapidly deepening low pressure will pass about 150 mi east of Cape Hatteras tonight and lift to off the New England coast Saturday. NW wind will quickly increase overnight with Gales developing across most of the coastal waters by Saturday morning. The exception is the rivers where overland trajectory is expected to keep winds just below Gales, however cannot rule out a few gusts to gales here as well. Seas build overnight peaking Saturday around 7-10 ft north of Ocracoke and 5-8 ft south.

LONG TERM /Saturday night through Wednesday/ . As of 4 AM Fri . Conditions steadily improve Saturday night into Sunday as the low moves off the New England coast and high pressure begins to build in from the south locally. Any lingering hazardous seas (6+ ft) will subside Sunday.

Generally favorable marine conditions then prevail through early next week as high pressure builds in from the south initially, then from the north beginning Monday night.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. As of 140 PM Fri . Rapidly deepening low pressure passing offshore will bring strong north to northwest winds Saturday. Minor coastal flooding is possible mainly along the soundside Outer Banks South of Rodanthe and Downeast Carteret County Saturday into early Sunday morning. Additionally, the combination of elevated water levels and building northerly swell could bring the threat for minor ocean overwash for Hatteras Island north of Cape Hatteras around the time of high tide over the weekend. Will issue CF Advisory for the Outer Banks and Eastern Carteret for water levels 1-2 ft agl, and High Surf Advisory north of Cape Hatteras.
