Synopsis
High pressure will extend over the gulf of mexico and southeast
states today through tonight. A dry cold front will cross north
carolina Tuesday, ushering in even colder air for mid week.

Near term today through tonight
As of 927 pm Sunday...

clipper-like wave aloft that can be seen rotating sewd into the
southern and central appalachians, will move through the region over
the next several hours. Given very dry airmass(pwat ~0.25") in
place, this feature is expected to yield only thin high cloudiness,
having little to no influence on radiational cooling. Lows tonight
ranging from lower to mid 20s where snow cover still exists to upper
20s elsewhere.

Short term Monday through Monday night
As of 209 pm Sunday...

a short wave dropping SE across the western great lakes region will
back the flow over our area, thus allowing for warming. Low level
thicknesses will increase nearly 50m over the next 24-30 hours. Thus
highs tomorrow will range from around 50 across the triad, to low
50s triangle, to mid 50s around fayetteville. Otherwise, look for
another day with plenty of sunshine, and perhaps some passing mid
and high clouds Monday evening ahead of the aforementioned short
wave. Passing mid and high clouds will continue overnight as the
short wave and its attendant cold front crosses the ohio valley.

Lows Monday night will fall to around freezing... A little warmer
than previous nights thanks to the aforementioned clouds and
an overall warming trend ahead of the front.

Long term Tuesday through Sunday
As of 308 pm Sunday...

the highly amplified pattern, with cold trough in the east and the
warm ridge out west is expected to deamplify late week. After
another quick shot over very cold air Tuesday into Wednesday night,
a moderation in temperatures can be expected Thursday into the
weekend. As this pattern becomes more zonal late this week, and most
likely transitional (back to another highly amplified pattern in 6-
10 days), the uncertainty will increase significantly in the details
of the forecast. Therefore, we will keep out any precipitation late
week or over the weekend due to the considerable spread in the
overall guidance by then.

As far as temperatures, the coldest period will be Tuesday night
through Thursday morning when lows are expected to be 19-25 and
highs in the 30s Wednesday. The warmest readings should be next
weekend when highs potentially will reach well into the 50s to near
60 se.

Aviation 06z Monday through Friday
As of 1240 am Monday...

vfr conditions are a near certainty for the next 24 hours, as a
surface high pressure ridge extends into the area from the wsw.

Vsbys will be unrestricted, with no cigs. Surface winds will be
light, under 8 kts, from the w, shifting to SW then S late today
into tonight.

Looking beyond 06z tue: there is a low-confidence chance of sub-vfr
conditions at gso int early Tue morning (08z-12z) with increasing
low level moisture ahead of the approaching dry cold front. Winds
will shift back to northwesterly after frontal passage tue.

Otherwise,VFR conditions will dominate through at least Thu night.

Sub-vfr conditions are possible with rain chances increasing fri
as an upper trough approaches. -gih

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.
