High pressure along the mid-atlantic coast today will move east
tonight. A trof of low pressure will develop off the southeast
coast tonight and move east Monday. A trof of low pressure will
pass through Tuesday. High pressure will then build into the
region through Friday. The next storm system will affect the
region by next Saturday.

Near term through today
As of 9 am sun... No changes needed through today, though will
have to monitor trends for an iso sct shower mention for the
immediate coast as weak trof offshore the outer banks may spit
out a shower or two later today.

Previous discussion... As of 7 am sun... No changes needed.

Continued quiet and bit milder weather on tap today as high
pressure continues to ridge into the area from the mid-
atlantic. Skies will range from mostly clear inland, to partly
to maybe occasionally mostly cloudy along the coast. Warmer
highs in the lower to middle 60s are expected.

Short term tonight
As of 9 am sun... Reintroduced pops back into fcst late tonight,
as now meso models in good agreement with ecm cmc on the weak
impulse spreading rain into the fa by daybreak.

Previous discussion... As of 230 am sun... The surface ridge
over the mid- atlantic will move east off the coast. In its
place, a trof of low pressure will develop off the southeast
coast. Isolated showers initially off the coast this evening
will slowly spread toward the coast after midnight. Confined
pops to along east of a line from jacksonville-new bern-manteo.

Warmer lows tonight due to increased cloud cover, with mid upper
40s inland to lower mid 50s south coast and outer banks.

Long term Monday through Saturday
As of 230 am sun... The surface ridge over the southern
appalachians will continue to dissipate Monday a weak coastal
trof develops and moves along the E nc coast. High pres builds
back in late Monday through the rest of the period, with yet
another low pressure system likely to impact the area next
weekend.

Monday... A weak coastal trough will strengthen along the coast
early Monday then move offshore Monday afternoon and evening.

Still a challenging precip forecast with continued model
disagreement, though the latest ECMWF came in slightly drier
than previous runs. Lowered pops slightly for Monday, but will
continue slight chance pops inland increasing to high
chance likely along the coast. Best chance of rain likely in the
first part of the day, with precip shifting off the coast late.

for thanksgiving day and Friday. First freeze of the season may
come to parts of E nc on Fri morning as lows fcst to drop to the
lower 30s inland, remaining in the low 40s coast.

indicate digging trough across the southern ms valley, which
may spawn sfc cyclogenesis across the southeastern states and
our next precipitation chances.

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.
