Synopsis
High pressure will move east through the southeast states this
weekend. A cold front will pass through Tuesday. High pressure
will build in behind the front Wednesday and Thursday.

Near term through today
As of 3 am fri... Quiet day in store with surface ridge centered
near the gulf coast building in with a very dry airmass, clear
skies and a light west wind. Highs generally from the upper 40s
northern outer banks to lower 50s southwest.

Short term tonight
As of 3 am fri... Surface ridge continues to expand into the
area. Under clear skies lows will drop to the upper 20s, with
lower 30s south coast and upper 30s outer banks.

Long term Saturday through Thursday
As of 3 am Friday... A stretch of quiet and milder weather is
expected for the next several days. Other than a frontal system
bringing some rainfall Monday night and Tuesday, no
precipitation is anticipated for the extended period at this
time.

Saturday through Sunday... Weak surface high pressure and rising
mid-level heights will lead to some milder temperatures for the
weekend as low-level flow will be SW w. Model guidance showing
high temperatures into the upper 50s for Saturday for many areas
with lower 60s likely for Sunday. Still chilly for Saturday
night with lows in the low to mid 30s.

Monday through Tuesday... Good agreement among the medium range
models as closed upper low moves across the great lakes pushing
a cold front across the region late Monday night and Tuesday
morning. Most of Monday should remain dry, but precipitable
waters jumps to nearly 1.5 inches Monday night into early
Tuesday. Have continued the high chance pops Monday night into
Tuesday, but current QPF totals are expected to be low, less
than one-tenth of an inch in most areas with perhaps a quarter-
inch on the outer banks. Milder overnight lows expected Monday
night with lows upper 40s to lower 50s, followed by highs around
60 on Tuesday.

Monday through Tuesday... A cold front will approach mon
bringing a threat of showers to area by evening. More widespread
showers are expected Monday night as the front moves into the
area. Increased pops to high chance Mon night. Mild
temperatures will continue ahead of the front with highs in the
lower to middle 60s expected mon. The front is now forecast to
cross the area Tuesday morning so will include low chance pops.

Temps will continue mild with highs in the low 60s.

Wednesday and Thursday... Behind the cold front, a return to dry
and seasonable temperatures as strong high pressure builds east

50s and lows in the 30s for mid to late week.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
