Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 335 AM EDT Fri Jul 10 2020

SYNOPSIS. Tropical Storm Fay will continue to lift north away from the region today. A weak front trailing Fay will linger in the region this weekend and into early next week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TODAY/. As of 240 AM Fri . Mainly dry wx expected today as a little drier air pushes in behind departing TS Fay. There is still enuf moisture that cant rule out an isold shra/tsra near sea breeze this aftn closer to cst. Decent amount of sunshine will lead to highs 90 to 95 inland with 80s beaches.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT/. As of 240 AM Fri . Generally dry wx expected most of the night. Did cont prev fcst trend of small pops near cst late as some shra/tsra will be moving NE over the ocean and a few could move onshore. Mdls show weakening batch of shra approach inland areas late so kept slight pop these areas as well. Typical summertime temps with lows in the 70s.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 3 AM Fri .

Saturday . A cold front will move over our area while washing out. Meanwhile upstairs we will have a 500 mb short wave moving in late in the day. This shortwave will enhance precipitation chances with likely pops now over most of our area. Our atmosphere still will be soupy, with PWATS above 2" so again, locally heavy downpours will be possible. We remain hot, with highs well into the 90s inland.

Sunday through Tuesday . We remain under the influence of a broad trof, with a deep southwest flow keeping our area hot or seasonable for mid July. While the models don't show discrete features yet, the daily instability and trof in the east is enough to continue a 30-40% chance of storms each day. While not a washout, highest chances likely will coincide will peak heating during the afternoon.

Wednesday/Thursday . A sprawling 594 dm upper level high will spread over the Carolinas, with 850 Mb temps remaining around 20/21C supporting highs well into the 90s inland. A typical summertime pattern with daily chances of thunderstorms, most likely driven by the daily sea breeze.

AVIATION /07Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. Short Term /through Tonight/ . As of 1240 AM Fri . VFR conts across rtes however most guidance show lower cigs building SW into the region thru daybreak. Confidence in this is low as most of the guidance is already overdone. Will cont mainly VFR til late then some sites may see period of sub VFR cigs thru early to mid morn. Any low clouds that do develop shld lift to VFR thru morn with sct cu this aftn with only very small chc of a shra/storm. VFR expected to cont thru tonight.

Long Term /Sat through Tue/ . As of 3 AM Fri . Mainly VFR through the period. Potential for brief MVFR restrictions especially during the afternoon in periods of showers or thunderstorms. Early morning fog also possible in the footprint of afternoon/evening rainfall.

Seas cont 5 to 7 feet N of Cape Hatteras so slightly extended SCA these waters til 12Z. Mainly NW winds early will grad shift to the SW this aftn at 10 to 15 kt with seas 3 to 5 ft after 12Z. SW winds will cont tonight with speeds mostly 10 to 15 kts could see some gusts around 20 kt thru evening. Seas cont at 3 to 5 feet, highest outer central wtrs.

Long Term /Sat through Tue/ . As of 3 AM Fri . Small craft conditions possible by Saturday evening with building seas and a continued southwest wind through the period.

Building seas will be the main boating concern during the long term period, especially Saturday evening through Monday. Southwest winds 10 to 20 kts Saturday, gradually increase to 15 to 25 kts Sunday and Monday. In response a swell will produce 6 foot seas as early as Saturday evening, building to 5 to 8 feet Sunday and Monday. As winds diminish a bit Tuesday, 10 to 20 kts, seas subside to 3 to 5 feet.

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.
