Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 958 PM EDT Fri Jul 3 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure builds into the area through the weekend. An area of low pressure may develop and lift along the Southeast coast next week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SATURDAY MORNING/. As of 950 PM Fri . The current forecast is on track. No update needed.

Pre Dis . No significant changes to the current forecast. The latest radar returns are showing a few isolated light showers that developed over the eastern-end of Mainland Hyde which was along the sea-breeze boundary--which diminished quickly. Can't rule another brief isolated shower along the sea breeze before sunset.

Prev Dis . Mostly dry conditions and clear skies expected this evening through tomorrow morning with high pressure in place. Light NW flow has fended off sea breeze development all day, though obs are starting to show it advance slowly late this afternoon as expected. Can't rule out a brief isolated shower along that boundary prior to sunset, but atmosphere is relatively dry throughout, so no POPs are mentioned. Temps cool down to low-to-mid 70s inland and around 80 for coastal areas.

SHORT TERM /6 AM SATURDAY MORNING THROUGH 6 PM SATURDAY/. As of 320 PM Fri . Mostly dry for the first half of Saturday with strong ridge of high pressure in control through the early afternoon. Models then show a backdoor cold front advancing south mid-afternoon through the evening and providing a chance for showers and thunderstorms to develop along it. Some guidance disagreement on the significance of the front and the storms forming along it, with the ECMWF being the outlier with a weak FROPA and little to no QPF. Capped POPs at 30-40% for the area at the moment, but still forecasting some sct showers and tstorms along the front given modest instability and PWAT values near 2 inches in the vicinity of the front. Additionally, general WNW winds will delay, but not prevent, sea breeze development through at least mid-afternoon. A few showers and storms could form along that boundary as well. Temps will have no problem warming up ahead of the backdoor front with highs getting into the mid- 90s inland and upper-80s along the beaches.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/. As of 250 AM Friday . Bermuda high pressure to the east re- establishes itself on Sunday, before low pressure forms over the Deep South late in the weekend then moves slowly along or off the NC coast early through late next week resulting in unsettled weather for most of the upcoming week.

Sunday and Monday . Bermuda high pressure will temporarily build into the region through Monday as the front stalls and slowly dissipates across the southern half of the area. The remnant front should act as a focus for mainly diurnally driven showers and thunderstorms both days. Sunday as the front dissipates over the region. Warm and humid conditions will prevail with highs mainly in the mid to upper 80s.

Tuesday through Thursday . The models continue to show the development of a surface low over the Deep South Sunday which is then forecast to move slowly near or off the NC coast early through late next week. The low will draw deeper moisture north into the area and thus will have high chance PoPs through Thursday. Daytime highs mainly in the mid to upper 80s each day.

AVIATION /02Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. Short Term /through Saturday/ . As of 650 PM Fri . High confidence in VFR conditions will dominate most of the TAF period. Mostly clear skies with light and variable winds, some places may become calm overnight. Can't rule out a brief patchy fog to develop near sunrise, though dewpoints are forecasted to be lower than last night. Overall, expect dry weather to continue through most of tomorrow then a backdoor cold front will start to push through in the afternoon-- increasing the chances for showers and thunderstorms late in the TAF period.

Long Term /Saturday through Tuesday/ . As of 250 AM Friday . Widely scattered to scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected Saturday afternoon and night as a backdoor cold front moves into the area. The front is forecast to stall and dissipate over the southern portion of the area Sunday and Monday and act as a focus for mainly diurnally driven showers and thunderstorms. More widespread showers and thunderstorms could 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. 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 /through Saturday/ . As of 950 PM Fri . The latest buoy observations are showing mostly SW winds 10 knots or less and seas 2 ft. Overall pleasant boating weather continues tonight and into tomorrow. SW winds will pick up a little overnight to 10-15 kts and turn W by daybreak Saturday. A backdoor front will begin its push south in the afternoon and shift winds to the NE as it passes before coming to a stop around the Crystal Coast in the evening. Seas will remain 2-3 ft with a few 4 ft waves further offshore in the central waters.

Long Term /Saturday through Tuesday/ . As of 250 AM Friday . Benign marine conditions will continue through early next week with a generally light gradient over the waters resulting in winds 5-15 kt through the period. Winds will be southerly through Tue with the northern and portions of the central waters becoming easterly Sat and Sunday. Seas will be 2-3 ft through the period.
