AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Raleigh NC 325 PM EDT Tue Mar 31 2020

SYNOPSIS. Low pressure will track across South Carolina and off the Outer Banks this afternoon and tonight, bringing rain to all locations tonight. While a shower may linger into Wednesday, high pressure moving into the region should keep the weather dry through at least Saturday night.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. As of 245 PM Tuesday .

As of 2pm, surface low pressure was over central Georgia, with an upper trough centered over Ohio extending south to the Gulf Coast pushing east. The surface low will be just off the Wilmington coast this evening and will move east of the Outer Banks by Wednesday morning. The primary rain shield with the surface low extends north from Georgia into South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia. This will overspread the entire region this afternoon into early this evening. There may be a brief lull in rain before a second round of rain moves through, this round from the upper trough. Added a slight chance of thunderstorms to the forecast this evening in southeastern counties due to marginal elevated instability. However, any severe weather threat is expected to stay well south. Rainfall totals have come down slightly with the latest model guidance, but half an inch in the southwest to an inch in the northeast is still a good estimate. Lows will fall into the 40s at all locations.

SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY AND WEDNESDAY NIGHT/. As of 300 PM Tuesday .

By Wednesday morning the bulk of rainfall should have moved offshore. However, a deformation zone will remain across central North Carolina and western Virginia, which could produce a brief shower early in the morning. In addition, there could be a straggling shower along the western edge of the rain shield across eastern counties. The chance of rain should come to an end by early afternoon, with skies partly clearing by early afternoon. A stiff northerly wind will keep highs in the 50s in all locations. Wednesday night lows will be similar to tonight's, in the 40s.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. As of 300 PM Tuesday .

High pressure will extend across the eastern United States for the rest of the work week into the weekend, keeping the weather dry. Low pressure will move from the eastern Great Lakes on Sunday north of Maine, with a front extending all the way south to the Gulf Coast. With the low so far to the north, the dynamics will be much weaker along the front across the Carolinas. Only have a slight chance of showers across the Triad on Sunday, then a slight chance in all locations Sunday night and Monday. Next, low pressure will develop in the central Plains and extend a warm front east into the Carolinas. The warm front will extend over the Atlantic Ocean, allowing the ocean to serve as a good moisture source. Have continued with chance pops Monday night and Tuesday. Temperatures will warm slightly each day through the period. Highs on Thursday will be in the 60s, rising into the 70s by Monday. Lows in the 40s Thursday night and Friday night will rise into the 50s by Sunday night.

AVIATION /19Z TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. As of 322 PM Tuesday .

24 hour TAF period: VFR conditions to start the TAF period will give way to MVFR conditions as cigs thicken and lower through the rest of the evening. Rain will move in from the southwest this afternoon and evening and linger overnight. Timing of IFR conditions are medium confidence as they will coincide with timing of the heaviest rainfall. Ceilings will fall to IFR between 20z and 00z. With an area of enhanced rainfall expected on the NW side of the low as it moves northward along the Carolina coast this evening/overnight, winds could also become strong and gusty out of the NNE. The eastern terminals have the greatest chance of seeing stronger gusts as the low will move along the coast during the overnight hours. As the low moves NE along the NC coast tonight, areas of light rain may persist into Wednesday pre-dawn. Expect conditions to improve from SW to NE on Wednesday late morning early afternoon as the low moves away and cigs begin to lift.

Looking ahead: VFR conditions are expected to prevail for the remainder of the week and into the weekend.

RAH WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. None.

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.
