Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 629 AM EST Sun Feb 23 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will continue over the region through today. Another area of low pressure will impact the area Monday through midweek. High pressure will again build over the area for the end of next week into the weekend.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. As of 630 AM Sun . A 1028 mb high is in full control of our weather this morning, providing excellent conditions for a chilly start to the day. Although not as cold as 24 hours ago, temps are running in the middle 20s to near 30 as of 630 AM. High pressure slides off the coast late today with some increasing high clouds this afternoon. After a chilly start, despite only mixing to around 925 mb, ample sun will boost highs into the lower 60s inland.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 AM MONDAY/. As of 3 AM Sunday . It won't be nearly as chilly tonight with increasing clouds ahead of our next system, capping overnight lows well above freezing or generally in the upper 30s. Moisture sharply increases after 06Z, mainly above 10KFT, so our forecast will remain dry through the overnight period.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 3 AM Sun . Unsettled weather arrives later Monday and continues through mid week as a large complex storm system slowly moves across the Eastern US. Much colder, and drier weather is expected by late week into next weekend.

Monday through Wednesday night . High pressure parks offshore as weak troughing develops along the coast and light southerly flow prevails. Gradually increasing deep layer WAA will bring increasing cloud cover, and temps Monday will be near to only a few degrees above normal despite increasing low level thicknesses. Showers will approach late in the day Monday as an elevated warm front moves towards the area. The warm front will move over the area Monday night as its parent low moves into the Ohio Valley and occludes. Thereafter the area will remain in a region of deep, moist southerly flow Tuesday and Wednesday with unsettled weather expected. Then later Wednesday, an area of low pressure will develop along the slow moving cold front to the west and help push the front through the area overnight into Thursday morning. It will be quite unsettled during this period, with rounds of rainfall expected. The wettest periods appear to be late Monday night through Tuesday morning, and Wednesday. Otherwise it will be very warm, with temperatures expected to reach the mid 60s to low 70s Tuesday and Wednesday, with mild overnight lows.

Thursday through Saturday . A deep upper level trough will be positioned to the west Thursday morning as the front crosses the region and winds shift to the west (with conditions quickly drying). Temperatures Thursday will likely drop through the day as CAA strengthens behind the cold front and the upper level trough swings across the area. Friday will be similar with, dry, with below normal temps 45-50 degrees. Low temps will be cold as well, with lows likely in the upper 20s to low 30s across the area. Saturday brings about weakening mid to upper level subsidence as a shortwave approaches the area, maybe pushing a dry reinforcing cold front through. Overall still expect dry conditions with continued below normal temps.

AVIATION /12Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Short Term /through Tonight/ . As of 630 AM Sunday . VFR expected through the end of the TAF period. Calm conditions this morning will give way to southwest winds at less than 5 kts by late morning, before becoming light/variable again tonight. Some increase in high clouds are expected by late tonight with CIGS lowering to around 10KFT by 12Z Monday.

Long Term /Monday through Thursday/ . As of 3 AM Sun . VFR conditions expected to prevail through Monday afternoon. Then an extended period of unsettled weather will bring periods of sub-VFR conditions through mid-week.

MARINE. Short Term /through Sunday/ . As of 630 AM Sun . Northwest winds around 10 kts now will diminish this afternoon and veer into the southwest around 5 kts as an area of high pressure moves over the waters. In response seas that are running 3 to 5 feet now, will subside to 2 to 4 feet late today and tonight. Winds increase slightly overnight ahead of our next system, 10 to 15 kts out of the southwest.

Long Term /Monday through Thursday/ . As of 3 AM Sun . High pressure will remain offshore as a cold front approaches from the west through Wed. Light winds expected Monday, with increasing SW flow Tue, peaking Wednesday night into Thursday morning. SCA conditions could begin as early as Tuesday morning for the waters south of Oregon Inlet with seas building to 6 ft, continuing through Thu. The front is progged to push through the waters late Wed night and Thursday morning, with winds becoming westerly 20-25 kt Thu as strong CAA develops behind the front. Seas 2-4 ft Monday gradually building through mid week, peaking Wed night into early Thur at 4-8 ft ahead of the front.
