Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 726 PM EST Mon Jan 27 2020

SYNOPSIS. Fast moving low pressure will bring scattered showers tonight before high pressure builds back in. A weak area of low pressure will pass south of the region Thursday with a stronger coastal storm possibly impacting the area this weekend.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM TUESDAY MORNING/. As of 715 PM Mon . The latest radar returns are showing the showers moving the area associated with the upper level disturbance. Skies are starting to clear up along the foothills of NC. As the upper level disturbance axis moves offshore, shower may linger along the Outer Banks, but this will not last long. Shortly after midnight, expect skies to start clearing up, allowing for sunny skies by morning. Expect overnight lows in the mid to upper 30s inland and low 40s along the beaches.

Pre Dis . Mostly clear skies will begin to give way to increasing clouds through late afternoon and into the evening hours ahead of a quick-moving low pressure system. A few sparse showers may show up on radar ahead of the main batch, but dry low levels will likely soak it up and reduce it to a sprinkle before dark. After sunset, a cluster of showers will quickly push through the area and provide some light rain. A few pockets of more steady showers may develop as the Wrly low level flow shifts slightly WSW providing a slightly more moist profile, but expect mostly light showers with no more than a tenth of an inch of total QPF. Any lingering precip will move swiftly offshore after midnight along with clearing skies and a NW/NNW flow following suit.

SHORT TERM /6 AM TUESDAY MORNING THROUGH 6 PM TUESDAY/. As of 3 PM Mon . High pressure will build from the NW through the day with clear skies and a light NW flow. Leaned more heavily on warmer guidance with building deep-layer ridging, bringing daytime highs to low-to-mid 50s inland and upper 40s along the coast.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 330 PM Monday . Quiet weather expected for the Tuesday Night into Wednesday. A quick area of low pressure will move south of the region Thursday producing some coastal showers. A more substantial area of low pressure may impact the area next weekend, but considerable spread continues in the long-term guidance with this system.

Tuesday Night through Wednesday Night . Weak mid-level ridging and a large surface ridge extending south from the Great Lakes will lead to a couple of dry and seasonal days Tuesday and Wednesday. Temperatures will be near to a little below normal with highs in the upper 40s Outer Banks to lower 50s elsewhere with lows in the lower 30s inland to lower 40s Outer Banks.

Thursday and Thursday Night . A strong mid-level shortwave will dive south across the Carolinas Thursday with a strong surface low forming and move well south of our coast. Guidance indicates light precipitation near the coast. With the fast-moving nature of this system, have kept PoPs low however. Friday through Sunday . Trends in guidance have again shifted a bit over the past 24 hours. GFS continues to be the outlier in showing a wet Friday/Friday night. Strong mid-level shortwave trough will dive across the Southeast and Southern Atlantic Coast Saturday into early Sunday. Cyclogenesis will occur off the Southeast coast with the ECMWF showing rapid development offshore to our north. Again, this is a large shift from yesterday's guidance which showed a much more suppressed system well offshore. Given the uncertainty, will only raise PoPs slightly for Saturday to high chance. Temperatures at this point look to be mild Saturday with highs mid 50s to around 60. The low should race away from the area Sunday. An upper level ridge builds behind the system with mild highs Sunday into the mid 50s and a very mild week next week.

AVIATION /00Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. Short Term /through 18z Tuesday/ . As of 700 PM Mon . Mainly a VFR forecast through the TAF period. Clouds and rain spread across all TAF sites this evening, and expect mostly VFR with a brief period of MVFR associated with heavier showers (added a TEMPO). As the upper level disturbance axis moves offshore, showers will end quickly and ceiling heights will rise. Expect VFR conditions to dominate after 6z tonight with mostly clear skies starting around sunrise and continuing through the day.

Long Term /Tuesday Night through Saturday/ . As of 330 PM Monday . VFR conditions are expected Tuesday night and Wednesday with high pressure controlling the weather. A few light showers may impact areas, east of the TAF sites near the coast, on Thursday, with lower ceilings possible there. Some uncertainty on the coverage of any precipitation Friday, but most areas should be VFR with only scattered brief areas of lower ceilings and/or vsbys.

MARINE. Short Term /through Tuesday/ . As of 715 PM Mon . Found NWPS initializing a tad too high again this run, so manually brought down wave heights about a foot or so across the board. Winds will start off Wrly around 10-15 kts this evening, shifting to the NW as a fast-moving low pushes through after midnight. Expect a short period of NW winds 15-20 kts with 20-25kt gusts possible along coastal waters S of Oregon Inlet beyond 10 nm. Waves will build from 2-4 ft this afternoon to 3-5 ft this evening and into the overnight as the stronger NW wind kicks in. Winds will calm to 10-15 kts after sunrise Tuesday, decreasing to 5-15 kts Tuesday afternoon. Seas improve to a general 2-4 ft by sunset Tuesday.

Long Term /Tuesday Night through Saturday/ . As of 330 PM Monday . Expect generally N winds at 5-15 knots with seas 3-5 feet. A few higher gusts, to around 20 knots, may occur Thursday as strong low pressure passes well south of the area waters.

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.
