Synopsis
High pressure will ridge into the region through the weekend. A
trough of low pressure will move along the coast Monday. High
pressure will build over the area Tuesday through Thursday.

Near term through tonight
As of 240 pm fri... High pressure will build over the area
tonight, with excellent radiational cooling developing due to
mostly clear skies and light winds. A light freeze could be
possible for inland sheltered locations, but based on guidance
(mos) temp dewpoint forecasts which are in excellent agreement,
think most lows will be in the mid 30s (33-36) so patchy frost
more likely. Along the coast, mixing will produce warmer mins in
the low to mid 40s.

with sunny skies, diminishing winds and temps moderating into
upper 50s to lower 60s.

slowly weaken and dissipate by Saturday night. A weak coastal
trof will develop Sunday night then move off to the east Monday.

Have the best chances of rain after midnight Sunday through
Monday. Dry weather expected for the remainder of the period as
a surface ridge builds into the region from the northwest.

Low temps Sat night will dip to the mid upper 30s inland, and
low to mid 40s along the coast (except obx which will remain in
upper 40s). Highs Sunday will be in the low to mid 60s. High
temperatures Monday through Thursday will dip down to a bit
below climo, with readings in the mid upper 50s, and lows in the
30s interior to 40s coast.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
