Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 757 PM EDT Sun Jul 5 2020

SYNOPSIS. A weak front will linger just to our south through Monday morning. An area of low pressure will develop and lift along the Southeast coast Tuesday through late week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM MONDAY MORNING/. As of 753 PM Sunday . Earlier convection has moved out of the area this evening leaving some temperature disparities across the forecast area as temperatures have already fallen into the low to mid 70s in rain cooled areas west of Jacksonville and Kinston. Elsewhere temperatures remain in the low to mid 80s across the northern and eastern areas with Hatteras still at 85 degrees. Radar estimates show upwards of 2 to 2.5 inches of rain across western Onslow and eastern Duplin Counties. These areas are at risk for some fog overnight as the surface will remain very moist going into the overnight hours. Elsewhere fog should not be much of an issue as low levels should remain relatively dry. Winds overnight will be light and variable but should veer from southerly to southwesterly as a surface high sets up just offshore and the boundary from earlier today dissolves. Expect lows tonight in the low 70s with mid 70s along the Outer Banks.

SHORT TERM /6 AM MONDAY MORNING THROUGH 6 PM MONDAY/. As of 325 PM Sunday . With very weak upper level flow and minimal mid-level shortwave energy, any convection on Monday will be driven by sea breeze interaction during the afternoon and early evening. As a result, will keep PoPs in the slight chance range with limited convective coverage. Highs will be in the upper 80s to lower 90s, with mid 80s Outer Banks.

LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/. As of 310 PM Sunday . Low pressure will develop to the south around Tuesday, moving slowly northeast along or just off the the coastal Carolinas mid through late week resulting in unsettled weather for most of the upcoming week.

Monday Night through Friday . Guidance continues to indicate the development of a surface low over the Deep South early next week which is then forecast to move slowly over or just off the Carolinas mid through late next week. There remains large spread in guidance with this system for both development and possible track of the surface low. The National Hurricane Center is also monitoring for development, and currently places the chance of tropical cyclone formation at 30 percent (low). The circulation around this area of low pressure, however, will draw deeper moisture north into the area and enhance coverage/intensity of showers and thunderstorms especially during peak heating. Temps should be near normal, with the potential for some below normal highs on the days with more extensive cloud cover and precip.

Saturday and Sunday . The low pressure area will lift northeast away from the area by late Friday into Saturday, with a return to above normal temps in southwesterly flow, with mainly diurnally driven convection.

AVIATION /00Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. Short Term /through 18Z Monday/ . As of 750 PM Sun . Despite early convective activity at OAJ and ISO, VFR conditions remain across the area. Of all the TAF sites, OAJ received the most rain and current dewpoint depression is only two degrees, therefore a period of fog is possible and will cover with MVFR visibilities in the TAF for both OAJ/ISO. Otherwise a quiet night in store as convection has ended at this time and forecast soundings are relatively dry in the low levels. While periods of MVFR fog could be possible, low stratus should not be much of a factor overnight. If it were to come into play it would also be at MVFR levels. Winds overnight will be southerly, veering to WSW by sunrise as a surface high sets up just offshore.

Looking ahead to Monday, again a fairly quiet day with light and variable winds through early afternoon becoming southeasterly at 5- 10 kts with more afternoon convection focused on the sea breeze. In the absence of the boundary we had this afternoon, coverage is likely to be less Monday afternoon than it was today.

Long Term /Monday Night through Friday/ . As of 145 PM Sunday . More widespread showers and thunderstorms should develop Tuesday as a slow moving area of low pressure moves into the area. Expect mostly VFR conditions outside of showers and thunderstorms through Monday with more widespread sub-VFR conditions possible Tuesday through Wednesday and then again Thursday afternoon. As usual, with very moist low levels, morning stratus and fog may occur in areas that receive rain on the previous day leading to sub VFR conditions.

MARINE. Short Term /Tonight and Monday/ . As of 750 PM Sunday . Good conditions remain over the forecast area this evening with all buoy observations coming in with 2 ft seas with 7-9 second periods. Winds are generally light and variable with offshore buoys gusting to 15 kts or so with a southerly component as the boundary lifts out. Expect southerly winds on Monday with seas remaining at 2-3 feet through the period.

Long Term /Monday Night through Friday/ . As of 3 AM Sunday . Benign marine conditions will continue through mid week with a generally light gradient over the waters resulting in southerly winds 5-15 kt through Tuesday, then southeasterly by Wednesday. Winds will then become easterly Wed night and northeasterly by Thursday morning, due to an area of low pressure crossing through the waters. Seas will be 2-3 ft through Wednesday, building to 4-6 ft later Thursday into Friday, in response to the low pressure crossing the ENC waters. Coverage of showers and thunderstorms is expected to become more widespread mid to late next week which could impact marine safety.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
