Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 642 PM EST Mon Mar 1 2021

SYNOPSIS. A cold front will push through the area tonight. High pressure will build into the region from the north Tuesday followed by low pressure passing just offshore Wednesday. High pressure builds back in to round out the work week. Another offshore low could affect the area over the weekend.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM TUESDAY MORNING/. As of 340 PM Mon . No changes to prev disc.

Prev disc . Latest analysis shows closed upper low over eastern Canada slowly pivoting eastward while a second closed low slowly meanders over the Texas Panhandle, helping channel a stream of Pacific moisture across the Gulf States and the Carolinas. At the surface, a weak front that spurred gusty shower activity earlier this morning is decaying offshore while a second front is marching east across NC, right now between Greensboro and Durham. Rain activity is struggling this afternoon, suggesting the relatively unsaturated 900-700 mb layer picked up by the 12Z sounding this morning remains in place. Forecast RAP soundings indicate this as well.

Upper trough will depart the region tonight taking the cold front and attendant moisture with it. Shower activity will continue to struggle ahead of FROPA and only show slight chance PoPs before midnight, drying out completely as cool high pressure builds in from the northwest. Upper level moisture stream will keep a layer of mid and high clouds overhead, keeping lows in the upper 30s inland and around 40 closer to the coast.

SHORT TERM /6 AM TUESDAY MORNING THROUGH 6 PM TUESDAY/. As of 350 PM Mon . Upper level ridge briefly builds overhead as upper low over Texas slides eastward. Surface high pressure will shift over the mid-Atlantic and begin to erode late as a surface low begins to take shape over the northeastern Gulf of Mexico. Deeper moisture will be shunted south with sunnier conditions expected especially towards the Albemarle Sound. Much cooler with low-level thicknesses about 60-80 m lower than today, supporting highs around 50 and in the 40s for OBX with brisk northerly winds in the morning.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 220 AM Tuesday . Much cooler and dry for Tuesday, followed by more rain Wednesday as a low pressure area tracks offshore, then dry again late week with another high building in. There are mixed signals in the models regarding a possible coastal low and it's impacts on Eastern NC during next weekend.

Tuesday night through Wednesday . Better model agreement on upper pattern by midweek, as they are converging on a solution with the next shortwave ejecting out of the Four Corners region early in the week, passing through the TN Valley on Tue, and then through the SERN CONUS mid week. The latest guidance is suggesting that the onset of precipitation will hold off until after midnight Tuesday night and that there will be a south to north moisture gradient Wed, with areas south of Highway 264 having the best chances for rain and the highest amounts. Will forecast categorical PoPs south, likely central, and will only have chance northeast zones based on the 0Z model run. Temps near climo this period, with highs in the 50s to lower 60s and lows 35-45.

Thursday through Friday . High pressure will build over the area with dry weather expected and a reinforcement of the cold temps Fri. Temps will be near climo due Thu, dropping below normal on Fri.

Saturday and Sunday . Looks like low pressure will be developing off the southeast coast this weekend. The track of this system will be critical to how much wind/precipitation impact's there will be across Eastern NC. There is still lack of run to run continuity and differences in the models, with areas east of Highway 17 having the best chance of precipitation which at this times looks like a cold rain. This is almost a week away so expecting a lot of variance in solutions over the next couple of days but will continue to monitor.

AVIATION /00Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. Short Term /through Tuesday afternoon/ . As of 640 PM Monday . A few lingering light showers are making their way across the region this evening as the cold front pushes through. Expect a slight wind shift from the W to the NW behind the front tonight. Winds will turn more Nrly overnight and calm near daybreak. Mid-level stratus over the region will clear out behind the front as well. High pressure builds in Tuesday to provide clearing skies and prevailing VFR conditions.

Long Term /Tuesday night through Saturday/ . As of 220 AM Tuesday . Dry high pres builds in for Mon night through Tue with VFR conditions. A low pres area moves just off the coast Wed with good rain chances and more sub VFR possible. High pressure builds in Thu and Fri with dry weather and VFR conditions.

MARINE. Short Term /Tonight and Tomorrow/ . As of 400 PM Mon . Latest observations show southwesterly winds at 10-15 kt with seas 2-4 feet from Diamond Shoals north, with seas 4-6 south. Next cold front is expected to cross the area later tonight with winds veering northwesterly and surging to 20-25 kt over Pamlico Sound and offshore waters, especially after midnight. This will help drive seas to their peak of 5-7 feet right around daybreak Tuesday. A few spotty Gale Force gusts are possible overnight especially closer to the Gulf Stream. Only changes to SCA was to extend headlines over the Pamlico Sound.

High pressure builds over the region Tuesday, resulting in lighter easterly winds and seas falling to 3-5 feet north of Diamond Shoals, 2-4 feet south.

Long Term /Tuesday through Friday/ . As of 220 AM Monday . SCA conditions will be ongoing Tue in the brisk northerly flow behind the cold front. Winds will start out 20-25 kt then diminish to 10-15 kt in the afternoon with 5-7 ft seas subsiding to 3-5 ft late. Winds will continue 10-15 kt Tue night into Wed morning while veering SE with seas subsiding to 2-4 ft, then winds are forecast to increase yet again out of the N to SCA levels late Wed into Wed night as low pressure passes just off of the coast. Northerly flow 15-20 kt Thu will diminish to 5-10 late Fri as high pressure builds over the waters. Seas build to 4-6 ft Wed night-early Thu then subside to 3-5 ft late Thu and 2-4 ft Fri.
