Synopsis
A cold front will cross the area this afternoon. High pressure will build north
of the region Friday through the weekend. Slow moving low pressure will impact
the area early to mid next week.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
As of 415 am Thursday... A cold front, currently crossing
tennessee, will quickly move across the carolinas and offshore
by later this evening. Mid-level shortwave energy coupled with
some shallow moisture will lead to a slight chance of a few
light showers or sprinkles during the early afternoon hours and
have added a 20 percent pop for most areas today. With gusty
southwest winds, high temperatures in most places should reach
the low mid 70s (upper 60s outer banks) ahead of the frontal
passage during the late afternoon. The gusty winds will start to
subside a bit late in the day.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 am Friday
As of 415 am Thursday... The cold front should push offshore by
00z with strong CAA to kick in as dewpoints crash into the lower
30s with chilly low temperatures ranging from the upper 30s well
inland to the low mid 40s coast. Winds will be remain gusty near
the coast, but should diminish somewhat inland overnight.

Long term Friday through Wednesday
As of 4 am thurs...

Friday through Sunday... Sfc high will build into the region from
the northwest Friday through Sunday. While to the west, an mid upper
level low will move across the southern plains lower ms valley,
while at the sfc an area of low pressure develops over the gulf
states. Expect mostly sunny with cool temperatures through Saturday,
then Sunday an increase of clouds ahead of the low pressure system.

Expect highs in the 60s with temperatures increasing 3-4 degree each
day. Friday night will be a chilly night for this time of year,
expect overnight lows around 40 degrees inland to mid upper 40s
along the outer banks. Saturday night, expect lows in the low mid
40s inland and mid upper 40s coast, then Sunday night, lows in the
mid upper 40s inland to low mid 50s coast.

Monday through Wednesday... The 00z models have a general consensus
with the sfc low developing over the gulf states and lifting towards
the carolinas tues wed., but aloft the models don't have a good
handle with the upper level cut-off low. Therefore, uncertainty
remains with the timing of the sfc low and strength track of cut-off
low aloft. With the models in agreement with timing of the precip,
have decreased pops slightly Monday, but kept 30-50% pops tues wed.

The warming trends continues through Wednesday with highs in the
upper 60s low 70s inland and low mid 60s outer banks.

becoming w. A few patchy light showers and ceilings in the
5000-7000 foot range will accompany the front through the area.

nw. Wind gusts this afternoon could be as high as 25 knots.

Long term Friday through Monday ...

as of 330 am thurs...VFR conditions will dominate the taf
period. High pressure will build in from the north Friday

currently 2-4 feet over the northern waters, but up to 8 feet
well offshore of the southern waters. The increasing winds will
be build seas to as high as 7-9 feet today into tonight,

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.
