AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WILMINGTON NC
704 PM EDT TUE JUL 22 2014

.SYNOPSIS...
A STATIONARY FRONT ALONG THE COAST WILL SLOWLY MOVE INLAND AND
DISSIPATE TONIGHT. BERMUDA HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD INTO THE AREA
WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY. A COLD FRONT WILL APPROACH FROM THE
NORTHWEST LATE THURSDAY...STALLING NEAR THE COAST FOR THE WEEKEND.
ANOTHER COLD FRONT WILL APPROACH FROM THE NORTHWEST MONDAY OR
TUESDAY.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
AS OF 330 PM TUESDAY...ITS BEEN A TOUGH DAY DIAGNOSING WHY MORE 
WIDESPREAD CONVECTION WITH HEAVY RAIN HAS NOT DEVELOPED ACROSS THE 
AREA. AN UPPER LEVEL LOW NEAR THE MOUTH OF THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER AND 
AN UPPER RIDGE IN THE EASTERN BAHAMAS ARE LIFTING A TROPICAL 
MOISTURE PLUME NORTH ACROSS THE CAROLINAS. AN OLD STATIONARY FRONT 
AT THE SURFACE IS MERGING WITH THE WEAK SEABREEZE BOUNDARY... 
PROVIDING A LITTLE EXTRA LOW-LEVEL CONVERGENCE. WIND SPEEDS THROUGH 
THE LOWEST 20KFT OF THE ATMOSPHERE ARE VERY LIGHT WHICH IS LIMITING 
MOISTURE ADVECTION...ALTHOUGH THE AIRMASS ITSELF REMAINS LOADED WITH 
MOISTURE AS SHOWN BY PRECIPITABLE WATER VALUES OF 2.1 TO 2.3 INCHES. 

THE ONLY FACTOR THAT REALLY STICKS OUT IS THAT CONTINUED PRESENCE OF 
MULTIPLE LARGE CONVECTIVE CLUSTERS OVER THE GULF STREAM FROM SC 
SOUTH TO FLORIDA. WITH SO MUCH SUSTAINED UPWARD VERTICAL MOTION 
CENTERED THERE...THERE HAS TO BE A CORRESPONDING DOWNWARD VERTICAL 
MOTION LOCATED DOWNSTREAM OVER OUR HEADS. THE FLOOD WATCH HAS BEEN 
CANCELLED EARLY AS A RESULT. SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS 
WILL CONTINUE INTO THE EARLY EVENING...BUT COVERAGE AND RAINFALL 
RATES WILL BE MUCH LOWER THAN THOUGHT THIS MORNING. 

THE MID-LEVEL FLOW WILL VEER A LITTLE MORE TONIGHT AS THE BAHAMAS 
RIDGE BUILDS A LITTLE MORE WESTWARD ACROSS FLORIDA. THE MEAN FLOW 
SHOULD REMAIN ORIENTED ONSHORE FOR THE CAPE FEAR REGION...AND FOR 
THE SOUTHPORT/WILMINGTON AREA I WILL INDICATE AN INCREASING TREND IN 
POPS AFTER MIDNIGHT. 12Z MODELS SHOW NOCTURNAL MARINE CONVECTION 
PASSING VERY CLOSE TO CAPE FEAR IN THE 06-12Z TIME FRAME.

BOTH GFS AND NAM MOS SHOWED A PRONOUNCED COOL BIAS LAST NIGHT SO I 
HAVE ADJUSTED MY FORECAST LOWS UPWARD. LOWS SHOULD RANGE FROM AROUND 
73 INLAND TO 75 AT THE COAST. LIKE LAST NIGHT WIDESPREAD LOW STRATUS 
AND SOME FOG WILL PROBABLY DEVELOP BY MIDNIGHT.

&&

.SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/... 
AS OF 330 PM TUESDAY...UPPER LOW OVER THE GULF COAST WILL CONTINUE
RETROGRADING ON WEDNESDAY...ALLOWING A 500 MB RIDGE TO BRIEFLY
BUILD INTO THE SOUTHEAST. MID LEVEL FLOW WILL BECOME MORE WESTERLY
DURING THE AFTERNOON/EVENING HOURS...FINALLY BRINGING AN END TO
THE CONTINUOUS CHANNEL OF DEEP MOISTURE THAT HAS FUNNELED INTO THE
AREA OVER THE PAST COUPLE DAYS. MOST ONGOING SHOWER ACTIVITY
WEDNESDAY MORNING WILL BE OFFSHORE...BUT WILL MENTION HIGHER POPS
ALONG THE COAST EARLY. PWAT VALUES WILL REMAIN IN THE 2.0 INCH
RANGE DURING THE DAY...SO STILL EXPECT ISOLATED TO SCATTERED
CONVECTION IN THE AFTN ALONG THE SEA BREEZE. BUT OVERALL PCPN
COVERAGE SHOULD BE LESS WIDESPREAD THAN WE HAVE SEEN OVER THE PAST
COUPLE DAYS. 500 MB HEIGHTS WILL GRADUALLY FALL ON THURSDAY AHEAD
OF AN APPROACHING COLD FRONT. RAIN CHANCES INCREASE AGAIN LATE
THURSDAY INTO EARLY FRIDAY AS THE FRONT NEARS OUR FORECAST AREA.
BY 12Z FRIDAY THE BOUNDARY WILL BE DRAPED ACROSS THE
CAROLINAS...PERHAPS EVEN BISECTING OUR FORECAST AREA AS IT STALLS.

THE SFC PRESSURE GRADIENT WILL TIGHTEN BETWEEN BERMUDA HIGH PRESSURE 
AND A PRE-FRONTAL TROUGH...WITH STRENGTHENING S-SW WINDS THROUGH THE 
PERIOD. 1000-500 MB THICKNESSES INDICATE A WARMING TREND AS THE FLOW 
ACQUIRES A MORE WESTERLY COMPONENT. EXPECT HIGHS TO CLIMB INTO THE 
LOW 90S WEDNESDAY AND MID 90S THURSDAY ACROSS OUR INLAND ZONES... 
WITH HEAT INDICES NEARING OR EXCEEDING TRIPLE DIGITS. LOW TEMPS BOTH 
NIGHTS WILL BE IN THE MID 70S.

&&

.LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...
AS OF 330 AM TUESDAY...COLD FRONT MAY BE HUNG UP RIGHT ALONG THE
COAST FRI MORNING BUT NAM WANTS TO PUSH IT SOUTH AND EAST OF AREA
LEAVING HIGH PRESSURE IN CONTROL. NOT CONFIDENT THAT THE BOUNDARY
WILL GET TOO FAR SOUTH AS H5 TROUGH LIFTS NORTH LEAVING A VERY
BROAD MID TO UPPER TROUGH ANCHORED OVER THE GREAT LAKES
MAINTAINING MORE OF A SW FLOW ALOFT AND NOT GIVING MUCH OF PUSH TO
THE COLD FRONT. THEREFORE WILL KEEP FRONT JUST TO OUR NORTHWEST
ON FRI. DEEP SW FLOW WILL KEEP A WARMER AND MORE HUMID AIR MASS
OVER THE AREA LEAVING POTENTIAL FOR LOCALIZED CONVECTION THROUGH
THE WEEKEND.

MID TO UPPER TROUGH WILL DIG DOWN FROM THE GREAT LAKES COME MONDAY
PUSHING ANOTHER COLD FRONT INTO THE CAROLINAS. THIS WILL PRODUCE
MORE WIDESPREAD CONVECTION IN INCREASED UPPER LEVEL SUPPORT LATER
ON MONDAY. ONCE AGAIN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH WILL REMAIN TO OUR WEST
LEAVING A FLOW RUNNING MORE PARALLEL TO FRONT AND NOT GIVING IT
TOO STRONG OF A PUSH THROUGH THE AREA. THEREFORE MAY NOT SEE TOO
MUCH OF AN AIR MASS CHANGE BEHIND FRONT.

OVERALL EXPECT GREATEST POTENTIAL FOR MORE WIDESPREAD CONVECTION
EARLY FRI AND AGAIN MON AFTN INTO EARLY TUES...BUT EXPECT MORE
TYPICAL DIURNAL TYPE SHWR ACTIVITY MOST DAYS. SOME DRIER AIR SHOULD
MAKE IT INTO INLAND AREAS ON FRI AND ON TUES BEHIND FRONTS...BUT
WILL MOST LIKELY REMAIN JUST TO THE WEST OF FORECAST AREA. TEMPS WILL
BASICALLY BE ABOVE CLIMO WITH OVERNIGHT LOWS IN THE 70S AND DAY
TIME HIGHS INTO THE 90S MOST DAYS WITH LOWER TEMPS EXPECTED. AS
TROUGH DIGS DOWN THURS INTO FRI AND AGAIN MON INTO TUES MAY SEE
BELOW NORMAL TEMPS IN LOWERED H5 HEIGHTS.

&&

.AVIATION /00Z TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/...
AS OF 00Z...CONVECTION IS OVER FOR THE MOST PART...HOWEVER SOME 
NOCTURNAL SHOWERS ARE POSSIBLE NEAR THE COAST THROUGH THE OVERNIGHT 
HOURS. STILL A LOT OF CONVECTIVE DEBRIS...HOWEVER MOST OF THAT WILL 
BE DISSIPATING IN A FEW HOURS...ALLOWING MODERATE RADIATIONAL 
COOLING TO COMMENCE. FOG WILL RETURN TO THE REGION...HOWEVER LOW 
LEVEL MOISTURE IS NOT AS PREVALENT AS LAST NIGHT SO WILL BACK OFF A 
BIT ON THE INTENSITY AT THIS TIME. COULD SEE POCKETS OF IFR...AS 
WELL AS STRATUS. WEDNESDAY...AN IMPULSE WILL MOVE UP THE COAST...AND 
COASTAL TERMINALS ARE EXPECTED TO SEE CONVECTION START FAIRLY EARLY 
IN THE DAY...BECOMING MORE INTENSE BY EARLY AFTERNOON WITH THUNDER 
EXPECTED. WEAK SOUTHWEST FLOW TOMORROW.

EXTENDED OUTLOOK...CHANCE OF SHOWERS/TSTMS WILL PERSIST THROUGH THE 
EXTENDED PERIOD. EXPECT PREDOMINANTLY VFR CONDITIONS WITH TEMPO 
PERIODS OF MVFR/IFR CIGS/VSBYS IN STORMS.

&&

.MARINE...
NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
AS OF 330 PM TUESDAY...AN OLD STATIONARY FRONT THAT HAS BEEN
STALLED NEAR THE COAST ALL DAY SHOULD LARGELY DISSIPATE
TONIGHT...LEAVING SLOWLY VEERING WIND PATTERN IN ITS WAKE. BY THIS
EVENING WINDS EVERYWHERE SHOULD BE TURNING SOUTHERLY AND WILL
INCREASE TO 10-12 KNOTS NEARSHORE AND 15 KNOTS OFFSHORE. SEAS ARE
CURRENTLY 2-3 FEET MAINLY IN A SOUTHEAST 7 SECOND SWELL. THIS WILL
BE SUPPLEMENTED BY A SHORT PERIOD WIND CHOP OVERNIGHT...BUT WITH
LITTLE SIGNIFICANT INCREASE IN SEA HEIGHTS.

SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/...
AS OF 330 PM TUESDAY...SOUTHWEST WINDS AROUND 15 KTS WILL PREVAIL
WEDNESDAY AFTN THROUGH THURSDAY AS THE GRADIENT IS PINCHED BETWEEN
BERMUDA HIGH PRESSURE AND A PRE-FRONTAL TROUGH. SEAS WILL BE 3-4
FT...BUILDING TO 4-5 FT ON THURSDAY ACROSS AMZ250/252 WHERE WINDS
MAY GUST TO 20 KTS. THE DOMINANT WAVE GROUP WILL BE A 5-6 SECOND
SOUTHERLY WIND CHOP. WINDS AND SEAS WILL RELAX A BIT TOWARD THE
END OF THE PERIOD AS A COLD FRONT DROPPING SOUTHWARD NEARS THE
COAST.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
AS OF 330 AM TUESDAY...COLD FRONT REACHES INTO THE CAROLINAS EARLY
FRI BUT WILL MOST LIKELY STALL AND DISSIPATE OVER INLAND CAROLINAS
OVER THE WEEKEND. EXPECT TO MAINTAIN A SW FLOW AROUND BERMUDA HIGH
WEAKENING AS GRADIENT RELAXES THROUGH FRIDAY INTO SATURDAY AS
FRONT DISSIPATES OVER THE CAROLINAS. SEAS UP TO 3 TO 5 FT EARLY
FRI WILL FALL BACK DOWN TO 2 TO 4 FT THROUGH LATE FRI INTO
SATURDAY.
