1235 am edt Fri mar 24 2017

Synopsis
High pressure will extend over the area from the north-northeast
tonight and then slide offshore Friday. The high will remain
offshore through the weekend with the next frontal system
approaching the middle of next week.

Near term /until 6 am this morning/
As of 1235 am Friday... High pressure continues to ridge into
the area from the north tonight while slowly moving offshore.

Skies will remain clear overnight with light winds producing
good radiational cooling and areas of frost over inland portions
of carteret/onslow counties as temperatures drop into the mid
to upper 30s. Veering winds suggest an increase in dewpoints is
likely toward dawn which could lead to the development of patchy
shallow ground fog.

Short term /6 am this morning through 6 am Saturday/
As of 330 pm Thursday... Spring-like warmth will return as high
pressure moves offshore along with ridging aloft. Winds veering
to SE and S will result in some scattered cu/scu during the day
but good insolation will allow temps to warm to 65-70 inland and
60-65 outer banks.

Long term /Saturday through Friday/
As of 240 pm thu... Above normal temperatures expected through
the period... With scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms
developing late weekend and early next week.

Friday night through Tuesday... High pressure will remain
anchored off the southeast coast, as frontal boundary slowly
approaches from the west. Warm moist s/sw flow expected across
the region, and low level thickness values support highs 65-70
degrees along the outer banks, and upper 60s to upper 70s
inland. Overnight lows generally in the 50s. Weak shortwave
moves through the carolinas Sunday, and could support an isolated
showers/tstm... Though expect best chances west of the area with
better forcing. Similar set up for Mon with scattered convection
possible. Better precip chances Tue as main front and trough
move into the mid-atlantic and SE us. Will continue 20-40
pops... Highest tue.

Tuesday night through Thursday... Latest guidance shows front
pushing through late Tuesday night and early Wednesday. High
pressure will build in from the north Wed and thu, as another
frontal system approaches late week. Continue slight chance pops
Tuesday night, and dry for Wed and thu. At this time does not
seem like a significant airmass change behind the front, with
above normal temps in the mid 60s to mid 70s wed... And a few
degrees cooler for thu.

Aviation /06z Friday through Tuesday/
Short term /through Friday evening/...

as of 1235 am Friday... High confidence inVFR conditions
through the TAF period as dry high pressure continues to
influence the weather while moving offshore. Strong radiational
cooling and light winds coupled with a veering wind profile
early Friday morning should lead to an increase in dewpoints
and some patchy shallow ground fog development. Bases of diurnal
cumulus that develop late Friday are expected to be AOA 4k ft.

Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/...

as of 240 pm thu... PredVFR through the period, with periods of
sub-vfr possible Sunday through Tuesday in scattered showers and
isolated tstms.

Marine
Short term /through Friday/...

as of 1235 am Friday... Ne swell continues across the waters
highest over the central waters with buoy 41025 still reporting
8 ft seas. Expecting this swell to slowly subside overnight but
may need to extend the current SCA into Friday morning.

High center will spread over waters tonight and then shift
offshore Friday, resulting in light veering winds late tonight
and flow becoming s-sw 10-15 kt Friday afternoon. Seas are
forecast to subside to 2-3 feet all waters Friday.

Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/...

as of 240 pm thu... High pressure will remain anchored off the
coast through the period, as a slow moving cold front approaches
the waters early next week. S/sw winds generally 5-15 kt
expected into early next week. Seas 2-4 feet Fri night through
Sunday. Models show waves building to 3-5 feet Monday. Could see
some 6 ft seas develop Monday night and Tue south of oregon
inlet in combo of SW winds and increasing swell energy.

Mhx watches/warnings/advisories
Nc... Frost advisory until 9 am edt this morning for ncz095-098.

Marine... Small craft advisory until 6 am edt early this morning for
amz152-154.

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.
