SYNOPSIS
High pressure will remain over the Mid Atlantic and Carolinas through much of this week. Moisture will increase across the area late this week into this weekend, bringing some increased rain chances to the Sandhills/Southern Coastal Plain.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/
As of 1100 AM Wednesday...

An anomalously strong 598 dam anticyclone at 500 mb will remain centered over the northern Mid-Atlantic today. At the surface, ~1030 mb high pressure is centered over the western Atlantic to the SE of New England. This pattern will continue to support easterly flow both aloft and at the surface through tonight. Visible satellite shows scattered cumulus already developing, but it will remain capped beneath a strong subsidence inversion around 800-850 mb.
Water vapor imagery depicts a lot of dry air over central NC, and this will also continue through tonight with PW values only 70-80% of normal. This will help dew points again mix out to the upper-50s to lower-60s in the afternoon. So heat indices will again be close to the actual air temperatures, which are expected to again reach the upper-80s to lower-90s with similar low-level thicknesses to yesterday. Some CAMS depict a few light showers in far eastern NC this afternoon, but with so much dry air anything should dissipate before getting this far inland. Lows tonight will again be in the mid-to-upper-60s.

SHORT TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/
As of 313 AM Wednesday...

The anomalous mid-level ridge will de-amplify a bit Thursday as the center of the anticyclone retrogrades over the southeast. The sfc high will remain anchored offshore, positioned to continue light esely flow and a steady stream of drier air across central NC (PWAT remains ~70 to 80 % below normal Thursday). As such, max temps will remain near 90 and heat indices will remain under criteria as dew points once again mix out into the lower 60s. Void of lifting mechanism and moisture, expect another dry weather day on Thursday.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/
As of 340 AM Wednesday...

..Dangerously Hot Temperatures Expected this Weekend and into Early Next Week...

The anomalously strong upper level anticyclone will shift westward while undergoing gradual weakening through the weekend, before finally giving way to a northern stream trough that will traverse the NE US and southern Canada late Sunday and into early next week.
Downstairs at the surface, SELY flow around Bermuda high pressure will lead to increasing humidity through the weekended, with the high moving farther out into the Atlantic as a cold front approaches from the west late in the weekend and into early next week.

The main weather headlines will be in the intensifying heat and humidity over the weekend and continuing into early next week. Low- level thicknesses and humidity will steadily rise as the low-level flow becomes increasingly southerly. By Sunday, highs are forecast to reach the mid/upper with lower to mid 70 dewpoints becoming more prevalent across central NC. This combination will support heat indices of 100-105 F, with Sunday and Monday expected to pose the greatest heat risk. This level of heat will affect anyone without effective cooling and/or adequate hydration.

In terms of rain chances, any rain associated with the inverted sfc trough tracking westward and onshore over FL/GA on Fri will remain south of the area. Aside from some isolated seabreeze showers/storms across the far SE zones Friday and Saturday afternoons, mostly dry conditions will persist through Saturday. Rain chances should begin to increase Sunday and especially Monday with the approach of the northern stream trough and attendant front from the NW, that will have the potential to stall or wash out across the area.

AVIATION /18Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY/
As of 145 PM Wednesday...

VFR conditions and dry weather will prevail across central NC through the next 24 hours, with just some scattered cumulus this afternoon. The one possible exception is parts of the NE Piedmont and northern Coastal Plain, which 12z HRRR probabilities indicate have a small chance for some fog/mist late tonight and early tomorrow morning. Considering it did occur at a few spots this morning, opted to add a TEMPO group for MVFR visibilities at RWI.
Winds will remain easterly and light through the period, around 7 kts or less.

Outlook: VFR and dry conditions should persist through Saturday.
Moisture and the chance for showers will return Sunday and Monday, especially near KFAY/KRDU/KRWI, which may result in periods of sub- VFR conditions.

RAH WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
None.
