Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 505 AM EDT Fri Apr 16 2021

SYNOPSIS. A reinforcing cold front will push offshore this morning. High pressure will build into the area through Saturday. A front will remains stalled south of the area this weekend through the middle of next week as weak areas of low pressure move along it. A strong cold front will move through the area late Wednesday.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. As of 445 AM Friday . Weak reinforcing cold front pushes offshore locally this morning while the deep closed low to our North reaches the coast of New England. Height increases across the Appalachians as high pressure builds in over the area today as the low continues to move to the northeast. Dry throughout the day with clear skies until some upper level moisture advects in from the west which will cut down on sunshine during peak heating hours. Highs in the upper 60s flirting with hitting 70 across most of the area, low to mid 60s OBX.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 AM SATURDAY/. As of 445 AM Friday . Zonal flow aloft pushes in drier air clearing out the upper level clouds before another round of moisture advects in in the early morning hours allowing temps to cool quickly for a short period before the increasing cloud coverage before sunrise puts an end to strong radiational cooling. Lows inland in the mid 40s, upper 40s along the coast and low 50s OBX.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 245 AM Fri . A cold front will stall south of the area into next week, with a weak areas of low pressure strengthening along it. A strong front will push through the area late Wednesday or Wednesday night. Near to slightly below average temperatures expected through the period.

Saturday through Tuesday . High pressure will weaken across the area Saturday as the stalled front to the south slowly lifts northward and weak waves of low pressure strengthen along it. 00z guidance in fairly good agreement with weak sfc low strengthening off the coast Sunday morning, then quickly pushing ENE into Sunday night . though most guidance now keeps the track of the low further offshore with the best moisture remaining south of the area. Will continue with sc/low chance of showers developing across the southern 2/3 of the area Sat afternoon and evening, though may take awhile for column to moisten given dry air in place. Slightly better shower chances Sat night into Sun morning along the coast, as moisture increases in response to low strengthening to the south. The front will remain stalled to the south through mid week as waves continue to develop along it. Weak low pressure and shortwave energy aloft will be enough to support isolated to widely scattered showers and tstms Monday, and increased pops a bit. High pressure will build in briefly Monday night and Tuesday, then pushing offshore Tue night ahead of the next front. Below normal temps expected Sat with highs in the 60s, coolest along the Outer Banks with onshore flow. Gradual warm up through early next week, with highs back into the 70s inland and upper 60s for the Outer Banks Mon and Tue.

Wednesday through Thursday . Stronger front is progged to push through late Wednesday, as waves of low pressure continue to move along the stalled front offshore. As expected this far out, some uncertainty with regard to timing. The GFS pushes the front through Wed afternoon and the EC is on the slower side with fropa Wed night. Added sc pop and tstm to forecast for Wed afternoon, with EC showing a bit more instability developing ahead of the front. Cooler and drier airmass expected behind the front with high pressure building in from the WSW and upper troughing. Highs Thu generally in the 60s with dewpoints falling into the 30s.

AVIATION /08Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. Short Term /through 6Z Saturday/ . As of 130 AM Fri . VFR flight cats with clearing skies through Friday. Surge of CAA behind cold front providing NWerly winds around 10kts with gusts up to 15 to 20 kts for a few hours overnight. Gusts die off a few hours before sunrise. Tomorrow, SKC save for some upper level cirrus with W/NWerly winds 5 to 10 kts to start the day becoming more Werly with gusts building back in the afternoon.

Long Term /Saturday through Tuesday/ . As of 245 AM Fri . Pred VFR conditions expected through Saturday. Sub-VFR conditions possible Saturday night into Sunday morning with scattered showers and low ceilings. Then VFR likely returning late weekend into early next week.

MARINE. Short Term /through tonight/ . As of 5 AM Friday . Cold surge has died down inland, warranting dropping the SCA for the Albermarle Sound and Alligator River. Offshore, NWerly winds 15 to 20 kts with gusts up to 25 kts diminish to 10 to 15 kts throughout the morning and turn more Werly as the weak cold front pushes further offshore this afternoon. The northern and central waters that were subject to long Nerly fetch experience lingering heightened seas through most of the day before dropping below SCA criteria late this afternoon/early this evening. Seas over the coastal waters south of Oracoke Inlet lay down much quicker by mid morning.

Long Term /Saturday through Tuesday/ . As of 245 AM Fri . Front will remain stalled to the south through the period as weak waves of low pressure move along it. Fairly quiet wx expected across the waters the next few days, but expect many wind shifts with stalled front and weak lows in the vicinity. Winds generally 5-15 kt through Tue with seas 2-4 ft. A strong cold front will approach the waters Wednesday, pushing through late Wed or Wed night. SCA conditions likely to develop late Wed in the SW flow ahead of the front, with stronger NNW winds developing behind it.
