shortwaves cross the region. A chance of precipitation will
occur mainly across the northern counties late Saturday into
Saturday night. As the weak boundary moves south and stalls on
Sunday, scattered showers and a few thunderstorms will continue
over most of the area on Sunday. H8 temps will support a rather
warm weekend, especially inland with highs into the lower 90s
with mid 80s along the coast.

Sunday night through Tuesday... Deep moisture will linger across
the CWA through early next week with a stalled boundary over the
southern part of nc. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will

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.
