Synopsis
Arctic high pressure will build in from the northwest through
Tuesday. Another cold front will approach from the west late
Wednesday into Thursday, then move offshore Thursday night.

High pressure builds over the region from the west by late week
into the weekend.

Near term until 6 am this morning
As of 110 am Tuesday... Strong 1039 mb high pressure continues to
build southeast from the southern great lakes early this
morning. Skies are clear except for a few cirrus approaching the
far western portions of the cwa. With a very dry airmass in
place with precipitable water at 0.06 on tonight's 00z mhx
soundings, very low surface dewpoints are in place, leading to
good radiational cooling across the region. Current forecast low
temperatures in the low mid teens still look good and no major
changes made to current forecast.

Short term 6 am this morning through 6 am Wednesday
As of 125 pm Monday... The strong upper trough will lift
northeast into the canadian maritimes on Tuesday along upper
ridging to build over the eastern u.S. At the surface, the
strong surface ridge will shift east into the mid-atlantic
states on Tuesday, nosing south over eastern nc. Dry conditions
will again prevail on Tuesday. Winds will shift from north early
in the morning, to northeast by late afternoon, and remain
generally 10 mph or less, with slightly higher winds near the
coast. CAA relaxes by midday with low level thicknesses slowly
rebounding from south to north. MAX temps will range from the
upper 30s north to lower 40s across southern zones.

Long term Wednesday through Tuesday
As of 245 pm mon... A slow moving cold front will impact the
area Wednesday and Thursday, with a return to warmer and wetter
conditions. Then, drier and colder air return for Friday and the
weekend. A coastal storm may impact eastern nc Sunday night and
into early next week.

Wednesday and Thursday... Warm southerly flow will develop
Wednesday as high pressure moves offshore and a large storm
system approaches from the west. Most of Wednesday should remain
dry, with only some scattered showers possible along the coast,
and later in the afternoon along the coastal plain. Temps will
climb drastically from lows Wednesday morning around freezing to
the low to mid 60s by Wednesday afternoon. Rainfall associated
with the slow moving cold front will move into the region
Wednesday night, and have pops ramping up from chance to
likely. Have categorical pops for the period of heaviest rain
Thursday morning, and as the front pushes offshore later in the
day have showers tapering off from west to east. It is possible
that some instability may develop during the strongest low level
waa ahead of the front during the day Thursday, and a few
rumbles of thunder cannot be ruled out mainly along the coast,
though the probability is too low to include in the official
forecast at this point. Additionally, guidance indicates that
several hours of sustained winds of 30 to 40 mph mainly along
the outer banks Thursday, and a wind advisory may eventually be
needed. Highs on Thursday are again expected to be in the low to
mid 60s.

Friday and Saturday... Behind this storm system a deep longwave
trough will anchor itself over the most of the CONUS centered
over the midwest and deep south. A secondary arctic cold front
will move into the region late Friday, bringing another blast
of frigid weather for the weekend. High temps on Friday will
reach the mid to upper 40s, and then expect highs only in the
low to mid 40s on Saturday. Lows will range from the low to mid
20s inland to the mid 30s along the coast.

Sunday... Though there are still considerable differences in
forecast guidance, it's appearing more probable that a coastal
storm will develop and strengthen along or off the east coast
Sunday night and into Monday. Will introduce chance pops across
the area for the day Sunday. Have high temps ranging from the
mid 40s to low 50s, but this is subject to change depending on
the placement and strength of the low pressure system.

Aviation 06z Tuesday through Saturday
Short term through 06z Wednesday ...

as of 110 am Tuesday... No issues expected at the TAF sites for
the next 24 hours as skies will clear except for some patchy
high cirrus clouds. Winds have diminished inland at the taf
sites, but the airmass is too dry to support any shallow fog
early this morning.

Long term Tuesday night through Saturday ...

as of 240 am mon... .Vfr conditions are expected through most of
Wednesday, before a cold front brings sub-vfr ceilings and rain
showers Wednesday night and Thursday.VFR conditions are
expected to return by Thursday evening and last through Friday.

Marine
Short term through Tuesday ...

as of 110 am Tuesday... Based on current observations and trends,
allowed SCA to expire for the pamlico and albemarle sound and
southern coastal waters at 1 am this morning. Elsewhere, winds
are generally NW N at 15-25 knots with seas 5-8 feet and will
hang on the SCA for the waters north of ocracoke until later in
the day Tuesday. Wind speeds will diminish to 10-15 kt
Tuesday afternoon in all areas.

Long term Tuesday night through Saturday ...

as of 245 pm mon... Winds will turn to the SE early Wednesday
morning ahead of the next storm system, and will strengthen to s
20-25 kts by late afternoon. Gale force conditions are likely
as winds peak Thursday ssw 25-40 kts. These winds will result in
minor water level rises along the roanoke and croatan sounds,
with inundation of less than 1 foot for very low lying areas
expected. Behind the cold front Thursday evening, winds turn to
the W at 15-25 kts. Then, winds Friday become NW 15-20 kts.

Seas will build Wednesday afternoon to 4-7 ft, and then by
Thursday morning waves are expected to peak around 9-15 ft, and
a high surf advisory may be needed for beaches from hatters
island south. Seas slowly subside Thursday night, and become 4-6
ft on Friday.

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.
