Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 412 PM EST Tue Jan 26 2021

SYNOPSIS. Strong low pressure passing west and north of the area tomorrow will drag a cold front through tonight, which will stall to the south. A strong coastal storm will develop along this front and impact the area late Wednesday and into Thursday. High pressure will build over the area Friday and Saturday.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM WEDNESDAY MORNING/. As of 320 PM Tue . The warm front has finally moved northward and through about half of the area with temperatures now climbing into the 60s to the south of the front, while chilly temps in the upper 40s remain to the north. Don't expect much more of a northern push however as the wedge front has been quite stubborn to move at all over the past 18 hours. Some eroding of the low cloud deck could happen in time for some sunshine to return briefly across southern NC, but it likely won't be enough to push temps past the mid 60s. Mostly dry conditions will continue through the rest of the afternoon as well.

The surface front will approach from the northwest this evening, passing offshore tonight. Not much wind is expected with this weak boundary, but scattered showers will begin to overspread southern NC by late evening. Elsewhere it should remain dry through most of the overnight hours. As a wave develops on the front south of the area, precip will spread back into the area around sunrise from the SW. Have lows generally in the upper 40s to low 50s.

SHORT TERM /6 AM WEDNESDAY MORNING THROUGH 6 PM WEDNESDAY/. As of 340 PM Tue . A weak wave will develop along the front stalled to our south tomorrow, which will bring light rain back into the area through the morning. Best chances for rain will be along the southern coast, with rain likely scattered at times across the Albemarle and NOBX region. Decent northerly flow and continued low clouds, will limit highs to only the upper 40s to low 50s across the area.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/. As of 330 AM Tuesday . A strong low pressure system will develop Wednesday night into early Thursday morning with the potential for strong winds, rainy conditions, and the potential for some light snow late Wednesday night. Then cooler and drier weather will dominate Thursday through Saturday. The next cold front is forecast to affect the area Sunday into early next week.

Wednesday Night through Thursday night . By Wednesday evening an approaching upper level trough will catch up with the weak low to the south of the area, leading to intense cyclogenesis off the NC coast. Initially light rain will become heavier through the night as the low intensifies, and as winds also strengthen, cold air will quickly move into the area overnight. A changeover to snow is likely across a decent portion of the area, with some minor accumulations possible across the northern half of the forecast area, but mainly north of US 264 and over to the NOBX. The snow accumulation forecast remains low confidence as there are still some variances with how quickly the cold air moves into the region, and also how much precip will inevitably fall as snow before the system pulls away from the coast. Strong winds could also produce brief near whiteout conditions along the NE NC coast before precip ends Thursday morning.

Strong CAA Thursday will keep temps well below normal with highs only reaching the upper 30s to low 40s, with gusty winds leading to wind chills in the 20s all day.

Friday and Saturday . High pressure will build into the region leading to cold and dry weather for this period. Expect temperatures to reach into the 40s.

Sunday through Tuesday . A low pressure system is forecast to develop around the MS/OH/TN Valley Sunday morning and lift into the Midwest. Models are indicating a secondary low will form across the Southeast states leading to additional rainfall. A cold front is expected to push through Monday, but with light rain to continue on the backside of the low.

AVIATION /20Z TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. Short Term /through Wednesday Morning/ . As of 1 PM Tuesday . IFR/LIFR cats expected to remain through most of the period with brief window of MVFR possible an hour or two on each side of 00Z. With ample amounts of low level moisture and calming winds, fog is expected to develop rather early tonight; confidence was high for onset of 5/6Z but development is possible as early as 2/3Z. Stratus is expected to accompany the fog with similar timing. Fog/stratus is forecast to lift/scatter out around 12Z tomorrow morning, bringing VFR cats before conditions worsen once again to sub-VFR conditions brought on by more rain showers in the afternoon. Showers will start from the coast in the south in the morning building to cover the whole area by the afternoon.

Long Term /Wednesday Night through Sunday/ . As of 400 PM Tuesday . Periods of sub-VFR conditions will be likely as rain becomes widespread Wednesday Night through Thursday morning due to a low pressure system. Also, windy conditions are expected as the low deepens off the NC coast. Expect high pressure to build in Friday and Saturday leading to VFR conditions dominate.

MARINE. Short Term /Through Tomorrow/ . As of 400 PM Tue . SCAs continue for the coastal waters south of Oregon Inlet as strong winds have finally developed south of a warm front located over inland Eastern NC. Seas remain mostly 4-6 ft over these areas, but could briefly build to 5-7 ft as winds continue to be SW 15-25 kts with gusts 25-30 kts. Further north, winds remain around 10 kts mostly out of the west. Conditions should improve later this evening/early tonight as a weak boundary moves southward through the waters and pushes the stronger winds further offshore. By early tonight winds will shift to the W at 10-15 kts, and then NW around 10 kts overnight with seas falling to 3-5 ft. Tomorrow winds will continue out of the NNW 10-15 kts with seas 2-4 ft.

Long Term /Wednesday Night through Sunday/ . As of 400 PM Tue . Marine conditions will quickly deteriorate Wednesday night as a low pressure system lifts into the area and deepens quickly. Have issued Gale Warning for the coastal waters and eastern sounds, as well as SCAs for the inland rivers and Albemarle Sound. Winds will increase quickly Wednesday night to 15-25 kts, and then further strengthen to NNW 25-35 kts overnight, with seas building to 5-10 ft by Thursday morning. Strong winds continue most of the day Thursday with seas peaking at 6-10 ft, before winds slowly subside Thursday night.

Winds will subside to 20-25 kts Friday as seas will remain elevated (above 6ft). Winds finally become 15-20 kts Saturday, while seas 3-5 ft with 6 footer still possible over the central waters.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. As of 400 PM Tuesday . Rapidly deepening low pressure off of the North Carolina Coast early Thursday will produce Gale Force northerly winds along the coast. This may result in minor coastal flooding adjacent to the Pamlico Sound across Hatteras Island, Ocracoke, and Down east Carteret county Thursday into Thursday night with water levels of 1 to 2 feet above ground level. Have issued a coastal flood advisory for these areas beginning after midnight Thursday morning.

MHX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. NC . Wind Advisory from midnight Wednesday night to 7 PM EST Thursday for NCZ196-203>205. Coastal Flood Advisory from 1 AM to 7 PM EST Thursday for NCZ196-204-205.
