Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Raleigh NC 353 AM EDT Sat Jun 22 2024

SYNOPSIS
High pressure aloft will remain in control ahead of a weak upper level trough that will move across the Middle Atlantic on Sunday. A pre-frontal trough and weak cold front will move into NC Monday afternoon and night, then lift northeastward across the Middle Atlantic as a warm front Tuesday and Wednesday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/
As of 325 AM Saturday...

...Hot with Heat Indices Topping Out In the Upper 90s to Lower 100s...

Continued Dry

Though weakening, central NC will remain under the influence of the upper anticyclone/ridge as it retrogrades further west to the lower MS Valley and srn Plains by early Sunday. The Atlantic surface high will push farther east out into the Atlantic, with a pre-frontal trough developing in the lee of the Appalachians. Low-level thicknesses and humidity will steadily rise as the low-level flow becomes increasingly southerly. Low-level thicknesses are forecast to increase 5-7m from yesterday's observed 1426m, which should yield in max temps being ~2 degrees warmer than yesterday. Highs generally in the mid 90s, which is 7-10 degrees above normal.

Afternoon humidity levels east of the Triangle will be higher than recent days, with upper 60s to lower 70 dewpoints expected. This is where heat indices are expected to top out into the upper 90s to lower 100s. This level of heat, this early in the season when most are not acclimated will pose a moderate risk for heat related illnesses, especially those without effective cooling and those with chronic diseases.

Rain chances will once again be limited to isolated sea-breeze convection across the far SE zones. Dry elsewhere.

Warmer overnight lows in the lower to mid 70s.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY AND SUNDAY NIGHT/
As of 325 AM Saturday...

...Second Consecutive Day of Heat Indices Topping Out In the Upper 90s to Lower 100s...

Rain chances return

Broad upper level troughing will develop and extend south into the area as the parent shortwave dives SEwd through the Great Lakes and into the Northeast by Sunday night. Embedded disturbances are progged to move through the mid-Atlantic, including NC, during the afternoon and evening, with the convectively enhanced cold front expected to move into the area overnight.

Isolated to scattered showers and storms possible from the afternoon on, with chance PoPs continuing overnight, mainly across the northern half of the forecast area. Given weak shear, severe storms are not anticipated. Additionally, rainfall amounts are expected to be light and/or fairly scattered. Thus, expect little to no relief from the rapidly developing drought.

Low-level thicknesses level out, with high very comparable and in some locations a few degrees cooler, owing to increasing PWATs/moisture and associated rain chances. Highs in the lower to mid 90s. The upper 60 to lower 70 dewpoints will be a little more widespread, with heat indices again in the upper 90s NW to lower 100s along and east of US 1. It is strongly recommended to avoid outdoor activities during the warmest part of the day and if possible, stay in an air conditioned location. Additionally, elderly are especially vulnerable to heat. Check on elderly often and make sure they hydrate.

Lows generally in the mid 70s, which will provide little relief at night.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/
As of 353 AM Saturday...

Dangerously hot temperatures expected early to mid week

As an upper level trough moves across the region Monday, ridging will build back in quickly by Wednesday. A second upper level trough will move across the region Thursday as weak upper level high pressure will slowly creep into the Mid-Atlantic region late week.

At the surface, a weak cold front will make its way across the Appalachian mountains and into Central NC on Monday. As the front approaches dew points are expected to get into the mid/upper 70s in some areas resulting in another hot day. Monday rain chances will be isolated across much of the Piedmont region and more scattered to numerous over the Coast Plain region. Timing is still a little uncertain as some models show decaying of the precip as it moves across the region but for now have best/high chance in the afternoon to early evening especially over the Coastal Plain. Temperatures are expected to be in the low 90s in the NW to mid/upper 90s elsewhere.

Tuesday is expected to be dry with the frontal boundary to the south of the region. However the far southeastern portions of the FA could see lingering showers Tuesday afternoon if the boundary stalls closer than anticipated. As surface high sits just off the Mid- Atlantic coast, Wednesday is expected to be oppressive as dew points are expected to get back into the low to mid 70s and temperatures warming up into the mid/upper 90s with a few triple digits in the warmer areas. Heat indices will be in the 100s almost everywhere with 105+ F heat indices around the Triangle and far southern portions of the Sandhills. Scattered showers will be possible especially across the western Piedmont and Sandhills Wednesday afternoon as moisture returns to the area, although chances remain low in the 20-30 percent range.

Thursday into Friday another cold front is expected to move across the region bringing a better chance for showers and storms.
Continuous model agreement has shown the best chance for precipitation will be in the afternoon and early evening hours. The frontal system is expected to move to the coast by Friday morning where like last time is expected to linger. This will result in afternoon showers and storms possible across the far southern portions of the CWA Friday and Saturday afternoons. Thursday will be warm ahead of the front with high temperatures in the mid/upper 90s.
Temperatures are expected to cool down a little Friday and Saturday (but still 5-7 degrees above normal) with highs in the low to mid 90s.

AVIATION /06Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/
As of 120 AM Friday...

24-hour TAF period: Increasing low-level moisture in the form of +70 dewpoints into the coastal plain, sandhills, and now the eastern Piedmont counties will support a chance for IFR to MVFR restrictions in stratus and/or fog at KFAY and KRWI, and possibly KRDU.
Meanwhile, KGSO and KINT should remain VFR overnight.

The stratus/fog should scour out relatively quickly, between 12-14z, with scattered VFR cumulus clouds again this afternoon.

Outlook: An approaching cold front will support a slight chance of showers and storms and related sub-VFR restrictions on Sunday, with better coverage on Monday. Tuesday should be mostly dry before isolated showers and storms may return on Wednesday especially west.
