Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 658 PM EST Fri Dec 13 2019

SYNOPSIS. An area of low pressure to the south will lift north just inland from the coast tonight. The low will continue to lift north of the region Saturday pushing a cold front through eastern North Carolina. High pressure will build in briefly Sunday and Monday, followed by another cold front on Tuesday.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SATURDAY MORNING/. As of 655 PM Friday . Large area of moderate to occasionally heavy rain continues to lift onshore across most of the CWA at early evening. With deep moisture in place (precipitable water values over 1.5 inches), periods of showers with heavy downpours will continue through at least the evening hours, before perhaps a lull after midnight. The tight temperature gradient persists across our CWA with readings around 60 to the lower 60s on the coast, but in the upper 40s to lower 50s inland. Based on current temperatures, did lower the minimum temperatures tonight over the far western CWA. LDS showing some lightning off the Outer Banks and will keep the small chance of thunder in the forecast near the coast into the overnight hours. Some patches of dense fog are also likely to develop through the remainder of the evening into the overnight hours.

SHORT TERM /6 AM SATURDAY MORNING THROUGH 6 PM SATURDAY/. As of 230 PM Fri . Sfc low will continue to lift north of the area early Sat with front pushing through in the afternoon. Active weather will continue for the first part of Sat, with widespread rain and isolated storms (along the coast). Some convective banding is possible, however most of the instability should remain just offshore limiting the severe potential, but still couldn't rule out some strong wind gusts or isolated rotating cells. Precip chances will be quickly decreasing late morning and early afternoon as westerly flow develops and drier air moves in behind the front. As the upper level trough moves across the area in the afternoon, some isolated showers are possible across the coastal plain and a bit further east, though coverage looks minimal at this time. Mild temps with highs in the lower 60s.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/. As of 240 AM Fri . Dry and mild conditions are expected Sunday and Monday. Another cold front will cross the area Tuesday, bringing additional chances for rain, as well as cooler temperatures for Wednesday and Thursday.

Sunday and Monday . Upper level trough will move out of the region Sunday morning, with heights quickly rebounding. High pressure will move in from the west, and settle in offshore late Sunday through Monday. Expect high temps on Sunday to reach the upper 50s to low 60s across the area, and be even milder on Monday, reaching the mid to upper 60s.

Tuesday . A stronger cold front will move through the region on Tuesday afternoon ahead of a potent upper level trough. Dry conditions are expected through early morning when showers move into the area from the west. Widespread rain is expected from mid morning through at least late evening, with perhaps a few rumbles of thunder as well. Temperatures will remain mild ahead of the front, reaching the mid to upper 60s for high temps. Then behind the front, temps will quickly drop into the 50s and eventually all the way into the upper 30s to low 40s by Wednesday morning.

Wednesday and Thursday . An expansive longwave trough will remain over the region for this period, leading to below average temperatures. Strong CAA will persist through at least Thursday morning, leading to high temps only reaching the mid to upper 40s Wednesday and then maybe a couple of degrees warmer Thursday.

AVIATION /00Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. Short Term /through 00Z Sunday/ . As of 7 PM Friday . Not much change in the current aviation forecast as widespread rain coupled with patches of dense fog through this evening and the overnight hours into Saturday morning will lead to IFR/LIFR ceilings. Conditions will be improving late Saturday morning and afternoon, and should return to VFR by late Saturday afternoon. Westerly wind gusts increase to 15-20 kt behind the front Sat afternoon.

Long Term /Saturday night through Wednesday/ . As of 315 AM Fri . VFR conditions through Tuesday morning when another cold front moves into the area and may bring another period of MVFR/IFR conditions through late Tuesday.

MARINE. Short Term /through Saturday/ . As of 7 PM Friday . Winds are initially NE/E on most of the coastal waters and Sounds this evening, but as low pressure develops and lifts north along the front inland tonight SE/S winds will increase over the coastal waters reaching 15 to 25 kts with outer central wtrs likely 25 to 35 kt. As winds increase tonight seas will build to 6 to 11 feet . highest outer central wtrs. Could see areas of fog develop across the coastal waters overnight into Saturday morning, becoming locally dense at times. Could see some gale force gusts develop across the waters south of Oregon Inlet Saturday morning and early afternoon. Front will move through the waters by Saturday afternoon with winds becoming westerly 20-25 kt gusting to 30 kt. Seas will remain 6-11 ft. Added Albemarle, Croatan/Roanoke Sounds, and Alligator Rvr to SCA beginning early Sat evening with increasing westerly winds.

Long Term /Saturday night Through Wednesday/ . As of 315 AM Fri . Then winds subside briefly Sunday through Monday morning, before increasing out of the S at 15-25 kts early Monday night. Winds 20-25 kts continue Tuesday as another cold front moves through the coastal waters.

Seas subsiding to 5-8 ft on Sunday. Seas then briefly become 3-5 ft Sunday night and Monday, before increasing to 6-9 ft Monday night through Tuesday.

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.
