Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 832 PM EDT Tue Jul 7 2020

SYNOPSIS. An area of low pressure will move from the Southeast states to the Carolina coast tonight into Wednesday. The low will then gradually lift north along the Mid Atlantic coast through late week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. As of 8 PM Tuesday . Low pressure currently centered near the central SC/GA border this evening will slowly lift toward the area overnight. Showers have waned some this evening as we lose daytime heating and are generally isolated and south of Highway 70. While a lull in the precipitation is likely into the early overnight hours, expect showers/storms to reinvigorate offshore and move toward coast toward daybreak Wednesday morning as the low moves closer to the area. With precipitable water approaching 2 inches and minimal wind in the mid-levels, some heavy downpours are likely with a quick inch or two possible, producing brief flooding of low- lying areas. Lows tonight will be in the low/mid 70s.

SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY/. As of 330 PM Tuesday . The surface low will linger along the South Carolina coast on Wednesday as a weak 500 mb low become closed over the Carolinas during the day. Deep feed of moisture with precipitable water over 2 inches, will lead to periods of heavy rain and most of eastern NC is in a Slight Risk of Excessive Rainfall from WPC. PoPs in the likely to categorical range for Wednesday with the highest values and biggest QPF closer to the coast. With cloud cover and precipitation, high temperatures for Wednesday will be limited to about 82 to 85 degrees.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/. As of 310 PM Tuesday . Low pressure will move slowly northeast along or just off the coastal Carolinas Wednesday Night through Friday resulting in unsettled weather for late week. An upper trough and surface cold front will cross the area late Saturday with showers and thunderstorms again possible this weekend.

Wednesday Night through Friday . Surface low is forecast to move slowly over or just off the Carolinas Wednesday Night trough Friday. Guidance is in better agreement through Thursday, with considerable divergence by Friday on the timing of departure with the surface low lifting northeast of the area. The circulation around this area of low pressure will draw deeper moisture north into the area and enhance coverage/intensity of showers and thunderstorms especially during peak heating. Trended PoPs to slightly higher for this period given better agreement, with storm total QPF through Thursday night ranging 1-2 inches inland to 2.5-3.5 inches along the immediate coast. Temps should be near normal, with the potential for some below normal max temps for days with more extensive cloud cover and precip.

The National Hurricane Center is also monitoring this low for development, and currently places the chance of tropical cyclone formation at 40 percent (medium) once it re-emerges over the Atlantic off or just along the SC/NC coast.

Saturday and Sunday . The low pressure area should lift northeast away from the area by late Friday into early Saturday. A broad eastern CONUS trough will develop with a strong shortwave and cold front moving through the area late Saturday into Saturday night. These features will result in slightly above normal temps in southwesterly flow, with showers/thunderstorms possible with the weak front Saturday evening/night, and again Sunday mainly due to diurnally driven convection.

AVIATION /01Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. Short Term /through Wednesday/ . As of 8 PM Tuesday . VFR conditions continue at the terminals this evening with mainly isolated showers across southern rtes. Low pressure will continue to lift toward the area through the TAF period with precip chances increasing late tonight, and especially Wednesday as deep moisture moves into the region. Cigs expected to become pred MVFR late tonight and Wednesday morning and continue through much of the day with periods of moderate to heavy showers and an occasional tstm bringing periods of lower cigs.

Long Term /Wednesday Night through Sunday/ . As of 330 PM Tuesday . As a slow moving area of low pressure moves into the area, expect more widespread sub-VFR conditions through the long term as the area of low pressure tracks through or just off the Eastern NC coast. Guidance diverges beyond Thursday, with duration of sub-VFR conditions dependent on track of surface low which looks to lift northeast of the region sometime late Thursday into Friday.

MARINE. Short Term /Tonight and Wednesday/ . As of 340 PM Tuesday . Winds have increased a bit this afternoon in relation to other days, running SE at 10-15 knots in most areas. Seas are at 2-3 feet. S/SE winds are expected tonight into Wednesday at 10-15 knots with seas continuing at 2-3 feet.

Long Term /Wednesday Night through Sunday/ . As of 3 PM Tuesday . Winds shift to more easterly by late Wed and eventually northeasterly by Thurs morning. Seas build to 2-4 ft Wed night then 3-5 ft Thurs through Friday. May see Small Craft Advisories Thursday night through Friday for the central coastal waters where seas could build to 4-6 ft in response to the low pressure crossing the ENC waters. All other waters appear to peak at 3-5 ft during the later portions of the forecast.

Coverage of showers and thunderstorms is expected to become be widespread Wednesday Night through Friday 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.
