.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SATURDAY MORNING/...
AS OF 600 PM FRIDAY...UPDATED POPS AND SKIES ACROSS THE FA MAINLY 
ALONG THE SEA BREEZE BOUNDARY...AND EXTRAPOLATED WESTWARD ACROSS
THE FA THROUGH 9 PM. ENOUGH INSTABILITY AND AVAILABLE MOISTURE
PRODUCING SCT/BKN LOW CLOUDS ALONG WITH EVEN ISOLATED SHRA VIA
LATEST KLTX 88D AND SAT IMAGERY. THE CLOUDS AND PCPN ACTIVITY
ACROSS THE FA MAINLY DIURNALLY DRIVEN ALONG THE SEA BREEZE AND
SHOULD SEE A QUICK DECLINE OF PCPN AND LOW LEVEL CLOUDS BY/AFTER
SUNSET. NO LIGHTNING DATA THUS WILL KEEP THUNDER OUT OF THE FORECAST.

PREVIOUS DISCUSSION..............................................
AS OF 214 PM FRIDAY...THE FRONT HAS MOVED TO THE NORTHERN EDGE OF
THE COUNTY WARNING AREA AND THE BEST MOISTURE REMAINS TO THE NORTH
OF THE 925 MB THETA-E GRADIENT AND THE LATEST BLENDED TOTAL
PRECIPITABLE WATER CONFIRMS THE BEST MOISTURE IS ALONG THE
NORTHERN TIER OF COUNTIES FOR THIS AFTERNOON. THE 14 UTC HRRR
CONTINUES TO SHOW ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS NORTH OF A LUMBERTON TO
BURGAW LINE SO HAVE ADDED A 20 PERCENT POP IF THE DEEPER MOISTURE
DOES SNEAK FARTHER SOUTH BY THE END OF THE DAY.

CALM WINDS ARE EXPECTED OVERNIGHT AND WITH HIGH PRESSURE TO THE
NORTH...WINDS WILL SHIFT TO AN ONSHORE FLOW. THIS WILL INCREASE
THE LOW LEVEL MOISTURE AND IT IS EXPECTED TO INCREASE THE
PROBABILITY OF FOG AND LOW STRATUS OVERNIGHT. LOWS OVERNIGHT ARE
EXPECTED TO FALL TO AROUND 70.

&&

.SHORT TERM /6 AM SATURDAY MORNING THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/...
AS OF 214 PM FRIDAY...A FAIR WEATHER LABOR WEEKEND ON TAP WITH

BRIEFLY ALONG THE CORRIDOR OF LOW LEVEL CONVERGENCE THAT WILL
STRENGTHEN ALONG AND NEAR THE SEA BREEZE FRONT IN THE AFTERNOON TO
EARLY EVENING...WITH CHANCES LOOKING SLIGHTLY BETTER SUNDAY.

LIGHT WINDS PRESENTLY ACROSS THE REGION ARE NOT ADVECTING MUCH

ALLOWED DEWPOINTS TO DROP INTO THE 60S OVER MUCH OF THE AREA AWAY
FROM THE COAST AND COASTAL INTERIOR. PATCHES OF FOG MAY DEVELOP
OVER THE INTERIOR COOL POCKETS OR PROTECTED COASTAL LOCATIONS BUT 
COVERAGE SHOULD REMAIN PATCHY WITH NO FOG ISSUES TO START SAT.

AS MORE OF A ZONAL FLOW DEVELOPING AS A VERY BROAD RIDGE TAKES
OVER THE SOUTHERN HALF OF THE CONUS WITH A VERY BROAD TROUGH
ACROSS THE NORTHERN HALF. BERMUDA HIGH TO THE EAST WILL MAINTAIN A
WARM AND MOIST SOUTHERLY RETURN FLOW AS PIEDMONT TROUGH TO THE
WEST WILL REMAIN FOCAL POINT FOR CONVECTION THROUGH MUCH OF THE
WEEK. A SHORTWAVE WILL RIDE THROUGH THE ALMOST ZONAL FLOW ON
MONDAY ENHANCING CONVECTION MON AFTN AND A WESTERLY STEERING FLOW
WILL CARRY THESE SHWRS/TSTMS TOWARD THE COAST. THE PCP WATER
REACHES UP ABOVE 2 INCHES MON NIGHT INTO TUES AFTN. A DEEPER DRIER
NORTHWEST FLOW WILL MOVE IN BEHIND SHORTWAVE LATE TUES WITH PCP
WATER VALUES DROPPING TO 1.75 INCHES. OVERALL WILL SEE A WARM AND
HUMID AIR MASS IN PLACE THROUGH MUCH OF THE WEEK WITH TEMPS
RUNNING ABOVE NORMAL AND SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ENHANCED BY

DAYTIME HIGHS WILL REACH CLOSE TO 90 ALONG THE COAST AND INTO THE
MID 90S INLAND.

.AVIATION /00Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
AS OF 00Z...VFR CONDITIONS THIS EVENING WILL GIVE WAY TO AREAS OF 
MVFR/IFR VSBYS OVERNIGHT. CLEAR CONDITIONS TONIGHT SHOULD ALLOW FOR 
GOOD RADIATIONAL COOLING TO SUPPORT FOG DEVELOPMENT...PRIMARILY 
AFTER 06Z AS LIGHT ONSHORE WINDS BECOME CALM. HIGH CONFIDENCE FOR 
IFR VSBYS AT KLBT BASED ON FCST SOUNDINGS AND LOCAL CLIMO. KFLO WILL 
LIKELY ALSO SEE AT LEAST TEMPO IFR BEFORE 12Z. WILL MAINTAIN MVFR 
VSBYS AT THE COASTAL TERMS...ALTHOUGH TEMPO IFR CANNOT BE RULED OUT 
FOR FOG-PRONE KCRE. CONDITIONS SHOULD IMPROVE TO VFR BY 13-14Z SAT.
