Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 425 AM EDT Mon Jul 13 2020

SYNOPSIS. Another weak front is expected to approach the area today, followed by Bermuda high pressure dominating and inland lee trough over the piedmont.

NEAR TERM /TODAY/. As of 400 AM Mon . The latest analysis is showing a sfc trough across central NC with a broad trough aloft over the eastern CONUS. A shortwave is evident on the WV satellite digging down and interacting with the sfc trough . allow for showers and thunderstorms to develop early this morning. This same shortwave will move towards ENC this afternoon--during the time when instability will be the highest with CAPE values ranging 2500 -3500 J/kg . allowing for upper level support to produce organized clusters of thunderstorms with the main threat being damaging wind gusts.

Most of the Hi-Res models continue to show showers and thunderstorms to start firing up along the sea breeze first, then the second cluster of storms will develop ahead of the approaching cold front while the shortwave is moving through the area. Expect highs in the low 90s inland and upper 80s along the Outer Banks.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT/. As of 400 AM Mon . All the models have a good consensus that the showers and thunderstorms activity will diminish this evening due to the lack of daytime heating. Clouds will linger during the night, while the cold front pushes through and be near the coast by Tuesday morning. Expect overnight lows in the 70s.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. As of 400 AM Mon . Broad upper troughing across the east coast will continue on Tuesday but with the axis setting up offshore, more robust convection will remain offshore with the seabreeze left to control much of the land based development. By midweek, upper level ridging commences over the Carolinas, again leaving the primary focus for afternoon convection on the sea breeze. Highs in the upper 80s to low 80s each day. Lows in the mid to upper 70s.

Late week, a surface low develops over the Ohio Valley and pushes northeastward through New England, eventually dragging a front into North Carolina for the weekend. Models generally agree on timing but that is about where the comparison ends as the GFS spins up the system quickly and is more robust throughout the rest of the run. In its wake, a relative surface high develops over the Ohio valley and helps push convection with the front into North Carolina. By contrast, the ECMWF solution is not as strong and doesn't develop this feature. Therefore it is weaker and slower with the surface low, and the associated front has a hard time making it into eastern NC. Will handle for now with chance PoPs until more details evolve. Regardless, it will continue to be warm with highs around 90 and lows in the mid 70s.


AVIATION /08Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. Short Term /through Tomorrow Evening/ . As of 215 AM Mon . VFR conditions to dominate most of the TAF period. Light winds and some clouds should limit fog development during the overnight hours. FEW to SCT clouds will be across the area, but remain VFR by morning, then scattered to widespread showers and thunderstorms develop in the afternoon. Some of the storms can lead to brief sub-VFR and produce gusty winds. Showers and storms are expected to diminish during the evening.

Long Term /Monday night through Thursday/ . As of 400 AM Mon . VFR expected through much of the long term aside from sea breeze convection during the afternoons and an associated chance of fog during the early morning hours where rain occurs. By the end of the week attention will turn to an approaching front that may bring an increased chance of showers and storms to the area. With this will come a better chance for adverse aviation conditions.

MARINE. Short Term /Monday/ . As of 400 AM Mon . Latest buoy observations showing SW winds 5-17 kts and seas 4-6 ft south of Oregon Inlet and 2-4 north. SW winds 10-20 knots will continue with seas 4-6 with occasional 7 footers along Diamond Shoals though the morning, then seas will gradually subside this afternoon and become 4-5 ft late this evening as winds become 5-15 knots. SCA remains in effect south of Oregon Inlet.

Long Term /Monday Night through Thursday/ . As of 400 AM Mon . Seas will begin to come down on Tuesday with 2-4 feet expected much of the day and winds fall to less than 10 kts. After a period of variable wind directions, southerly winds should prevail through much of the rest of the forecast period with seas around 2 feet.

MHX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. NC . Beach Hazards Statement through this evening for NCZ195-196- 199-204-205. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until 11 PM EDT this evening for AMZ152- 154.

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.
