Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 948 AM EST Sun Jan 19 2020

SYNOPSIS. A strong cold front will cross the region today. Cold high pressure then dominates the region for most of next week. Low pressure and its associated cold front will impact the area next weekend.

NEAR TERM /TODAY/. As of 950 AM Sunday . Cold front will continue to push E and move offshore this afternoon. Latest radar imagery shows light showers blossoming a bit along the southern tier late this morning. Will continue high chance pops the next few hours tapering off late morning and early afternoon. Warm start with SW winds ahead of front . temps at daybreak prob wont rise much with clouds/precip then CAA kicks in this aftn. Expect highs around 60 nrn tier with mid 60s S. SW winds will be gusty coast early then expect gusty NW winds all areas this aftn behind front.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT/. As of 230 AM Sunday . Strong cold/dry advection conts tonight behind front with mclr skies. NW winds will remain gusty coast but diminish a bit inland. Lows will drop to around 25 cooler inland spots to low/mid 30s most beaches.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 330 AM Sun . Settled but cold conditions for the first part of the week, trending more seasonable mid-week before the next frontal system arrives next weekend.

Monday through Thursday . Upper low embedded within broad troughing over the eastern US slides south of the area Monday night into Tuesday, then off the Southeast coast Wednesday morning. Despite the potential for vort advection aloft to encourage lift, high pressure building in from the west will keep the lower and mid levels very dry, so a dry forecast remains in place to start the workweek. Persistent northerly winds ahead of the approaching arctic high will bring some of the coldest temps of the year, with highs mainly in the lower 40s Monday and Tuesday, and lows in the lower to mid 20s inland, and around freezing at the beaches, both nights.

Heights aloft peak Wednesday night before beginning to fall Thursday as the upper ridge axis moves west of the area. Meanwhile, surface high pressure continues to build Wednesday, moving overhead or nearby Thursday. Deep subsidence keeps a dry forecast in place through mid-week, but weakening CAA will allow temps to trend back toward normal, possibly reaching a couple degrees above normal Thursday.

Friday and Saturday . Friday will be a transition day as a broad cutoff low crossing the Midwest or Great Lakes brings continued height falls aloft, and low level flow becomes increasingly southerly as the high slides offshore and a cold front approaches from the west. Significant variability exists between global guidance, with the EC and Canadian indicating a stacked low crossing the Midwest, with the potential for a secondary wave/low to form within the approaching front and sliding across the Mid-Atlantic. Alternatively, the GFS favors a further north track of the stacked low, with a less progressive and weaker front. Have slightly favored ECMWF solution, with moisture advection increasing through the day Friday, and mid-range chance POPs arriving in the forecast Friday night and Saturday.

AVIATION /15Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Short Term /through Tonight/ . As of 615 AM Sun . Expect a few bouts of sub VFR thru mid to late morn as sct to numerous shra cross ahead of cold front. Think will be mainly MVFR at times but some IFR poss. Conditions shld improve rapidly from late morn on as much drier air spread in behind front with clouds lifting and sct out. VFR will cont tonight with mclr skies. NW winds will gusts 15 to 20 kts from mid day on behind front . winds shld diminish this evening.

Long Term /Monday through Thursday/ . As of 330 AM Sun . VFR conditions and mostly clear skies prevail through the period with breezy north winds through midweek.

MARINE. Short Term /through Tonight/ . As of 950 AM Sunday . Winds have been slow to diminish nrn tier with several sites near Albemarle Sound still gusting aoa 25 kts. Based on this will extend SCA for nrn sounds/rivers thru tonight as any lull in winds shld be brief as NW winds ramp up later today. Gales look marginal central and srn wtrs but will cont a little while longer as most all guidance conts to show SW winds aoa 30 kts thru mid morn.

Gusty W/SW winds 25 to 35 kt will cont thru mid/late morn ahead of cold front, highest outer wtrs from Cape Hat S. As front pushes offshore this aftn winds will become NW 15 to 25 kts. Winds will cont at mainly 15 to 25 kt tonight with dir becoming more N. Seas will be peaking thru daybreak at 10 to 11 ft outer central wtrs. Seas will slowly subside to 6 to 8 ft outer wtrs today and 5 to 7 ft tonight.

Will cont Gale Warning central and srn wtrs thru late morn. SCA for nrn sounds/rivers will briefly come down later this morn . will likely need to issue another one for these wtrs tonight. SCA will cont for nrn wtrs and Pamlico Sound thru tonight.

Long Term /Mon through Thursday/ . As of 330 AM Sun . Persistent north winds bring hazardous marine conditions through the first part of the workweek as high pressure builds in from the west and low pressure develops well off the Southeast coast. CAA should ensure efficient mixing of winds to the surface, resulting in breezy conditions on all area waterways. Seas remain elevated through midweek in mainly locally generated windswell, and SCAs will likely be necessary for all coastal waters at least through Wednesday. Conditions will begin to improve Thursday as high pressure builds closer and the local gradient begins to relax.

MHX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. NC . None. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until 7 AM EST Monday for AMZ131-135-230- 231. Gale Warning until 11 AM EST this morning for AMZ152-154-156- 158. Small Craft Advisory until 1 PM EST Wednesday for AMZ150.

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.
