AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Raleigh NC 945 PM EDT Sat Jul 11 2020

SYNOPSIS. A weak surface boundary across the Coastal Plain will dissipate Sunday morning. An upper level trough approaching late Sunday will bring another weak surface front into the Appalachians Sunday night and into the central Carolinas Monday. A strong upper level ridge will build in from the west and southwest Tuesday through the end of the work week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. As of 940 PM Saturday .

Aside from an isolated shower possible over the southeast Coastal Plain, tonight should be dry across central NC. The surface boundary remains draped across eastern NC this evening, with lingering warm, moist air to the east and a bit lower dewpoints and relatively high pressure to the west. There are still a few clouds out there, but expect mostly clear skies to prevail through much of tonight. Lows tonight will still be mild, upper 60s NW to mid 70s SE.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY AND SUNDAY NIGHT/. As of 245 PM Saturday .

With today's boundary having minimal movement, the area east of I-95 where showers/storms are possible today should be a very similar area Sunday afternoon, following a diurnal timing trend. In addition, there will be a chance for showers/storms following a non- diurnal trend west of US-1. Upstream convection occurring today across the central United States should continue east tonight into Sunday, and any MCV that remains could provide means for forcing into west-central North Carolina. While any chance of showers would not be likely to last past midnight, chances across this area will likely peak during the evening hours. Both highs and lows during this 24 hour period will likely be a couple degrees higher than the current 24 hour period.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 310 PM Saturday .

Mon/Mon night: This period presents what may be the best chance for showers and storms in this time frame, mainly in the E, where PW will be highest. The diffuse surface front should be located somewhere over the W Piedmont, as the heart of the mid level trough axis slowly swings through the area. Will have low chance pops W but good chances in the E (beneath better upper divergence in the right entrance region of a weak upper jet E of the trough), from afternoon well into the night as most guidance shows convection peaking in the evening. Following close to persistence, will have highs 90-95 and lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

Tue through Sat: The mid level trough will continue to weaken gradually and shift E off the coast as the strong mid level ridge over the Desert Southwest today steadily builds to the ENE into the Carolinas. Tue to Thu should see below normal precip chances, given the mid level warm/stable air and lack of substantial deep moisture influx, with temps remaining above normal. Expect highs to again be in the 90-95 range, with lows 68-74. Then, as Bermuda ridging builds late in the week, the offshore height weakness appears likely to propagate back westward and onto the East Coast for Fri/Sat, resulting in increasing Atlantic and Gulf moisture advection and greater shower/storm chances, especially each afternoon/evening. Will trend to good chance pops for now for both days, although we may need to go up to likely if model trends hold. Expect highs around 90 to the lower 90s and lows in the low-mid 70s with mostly cloudy skies. -GIH

AVIATION /00Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 720 PM Saturday .

24 hour TAF period: High confidence VFR conditions will prevail through the TAF period. An isolated shower or two could impact KRDU, KFAY or KRWI briefly, but not currently expecting any adverse aviation conditions. Winds should be around 5 kts or less through Sunday morning. -KC

Looking ahead: Diurnally driven isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to continue through the week. However, an upper level trough should allow for the greatest coverage to occur on Monday. -Green

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.
