Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 730 PM EDT Sat May 30 2020

SYNOPSIS. A cold front will move offshore late tonight. High pressure will build south from Canada into the Carolinas Sunday through midweek. Another cold front will approach from the northwest Thursday into Friday.

NEAR TERM /Through Tonight/. As of 730 PM Sat . Bkn line of shra and tsra moving into the northern tier and coastal plain counties, and will maintain 40-60 pops through the next several hours. This activity should weaken as it approaches the coast and have pops diminishing later this evening as a result.

Prev discussion . As of 310 PM Saturday . Convective coverage has lagged a bit this afternoon, due in part to extensive cloud cover limiting the amount of instability. A few showers detected in the southern zones at mid-afternoon and best chance for convective initiation will be near the coast for the next few hours. Expect additional showers and thunderstorm to develop along cold front, now moving into the eastern Piedmont and approaching our CWA. Marginal potential for a locally strong or severe tstm, but main threat continues to be heavy rainfall producing temporary localized flooding. Dewpoints should fall nicely behind the cold front after midnight with lows dropping into the mid to upper 60s.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY/. As of 310 PM Saturday . Strong high pressure starts to build south from the Great Lakes Sunday with much more comfortable dewpoints and generally sunny skies. High temperatures Sunday will be 75 to 80 degrees, except upper 60s northern Outer Banks. Dewpoints should drop into the low/mid 50s in most areas during the afternoon making for a very nice Sunday.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 250 PM Saturday . High pressure builds into the region early next week producing drier and cooler weather conditions. High pressure moved offshore by the middle of the week with a series of disturbances bringing rain chances back into the forecast late week into next weekend.

Sunday night through Tuesday . High pressure will continue to build into the area from the northwest Sunday night. The high will be centered across the area Monday, then begins to slide offshore Tuesday. NW downslope flow aloft will bring dry and much more comfortable conditions with dewpoints dropping into the 40s and 50s. Temps Mon will be around 5-10 degrees below normal with highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s. Latest models show return flow developing faster Tuesday with temps warming into the lower 80s inland.

Tuesday night through Saturday . High pressure will slide farther offshore Tuesday night with a warm front passing through the area followed by a series of weak disturbances moving through the NW flow aloft for the remainder of the period which will bring a chance of showers across the area especially from late week into next weekend. Models have wavered some with timing and coverage of pcpn, so will limit PoPs to slight chance to low chance at this time. The best chances may come Friday and Sat as a backdoor cold front is progged to pushing into the area. SW return flow around the high offshore will bring much warmer temps with highs in the mid to upper 80s, with lower 90s possible on Wed and Thursday.

AVIATION /00Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Short Term /through 18Z Sunday/ . As of 730 PM Sat . Looking at mainly a VFR forecast this TAF period with 2 exceptions: 1) Brief IFR conditions will be possible in numerous showers and thunderstorms through early evening and 2) A period of MVFR ceilings will be possible after midnight along a cold front which will crossing the area late tonight. N winds will gust at times to 20 kt on Sunday behind the cold front.

Long Term /Sunday night through Thursday/ . As of 330 PM Saturday . High pressure will build into the area Sunday Night and Monday, then move offshore Tuesday with a much drier airmass building into the area bringing pred VFR conditions. Could see a few showers return Tuesday night into Wednesday as a mid level disturbance moves through the NW flow aloft, but generally expect VFR conditions to prevail.

MARINE. Short Term /through Sunday/ . As of 320 PM Saturday . No real changes in the marine forecast as SW winds continue at 15 knots or less with seas 3-5 feet at late afternoon. Slow moving cold front will continue to cross the CWA this evening and move offshore around midnight or shortly thereafter. Expect SW winds 10-15 kt to continue this evening with some gusts to 20 kt, with seas 3-5 ft. Gusty northerly surge 15-25 kt expected to develop behind the front early Sunday morning continuing into Sunday evening. SCA continues for the coastal waters and Pamlico Sound.

Long Term /Sunday night through Thursday/ . As of 315 AM Friday . High pressure building over the waters Sunday night and Mon will result in diminishing winds and subsiding seas. Sunday night NE winds 15-20 kt will decrease to 10-15 kt with seas subsiding below 6 ft. Mon NE winds will be 10-15 kt with 3-5 ft seas subsiding to 2-4 ft. Tue will start off with light S-SW flow around 10 kt increasing to 15-25 kt late in the day.

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.
