Synopsis
Low pressure and its associated cold front will push across the
area tonight. Strong high pressure will build in from the north
Tuesday through Thursday then slide offshore Friday and Saturday.

The next frontal system will impact the region Sunday into
Monday.

Near term until 6 am Tuesday morning
As of 3 pm Monday... A robust shortwave and broad surface low
pressure area is pushing across the southern appalachians this
afternoon. Shower activity has been increasing across the area
this afternoon, most concentrated along the sea breeze where
better low level convergence is maximized. CAPE is currently
around 500-1000 j kg with 30-40 kt bulk shear but have yet to
see any lightning with the highest reflectivity generally below
the freezing level and all 40 dbz echoes below -20c.

The upper tough will continue to move toward the area overnight
while the low pressure area deepens as it pushes across the
area. Precip chances will expected to increase in earnest late
this afternoon and evening as prefrontal moisture convergence
increases ahead of an approaching cold front and PVA is
maximized as a h5 shortwave crosses the carolinas. Will keep
slight change of tstms in the forcast this evening with modest
instability and shear continuing ahead of the front, but
conditions stabilize quickly as the low moves offshore and the
cold front pushes across the area. QPF amounts still looking to
be around a quarter to three quarters of an inch, highest
across the northern counties. Temps will remain mild this
evening, mainly in the 60s, ahead of the front, but are expected
to drop to around 45-50 by daybreak Tuesday with CAA ramping up
behind the front.

The low will deepen rapidly late tonight as it pushes offshore
bringing tightening pressure gradients across the area and
windy conditions developing along the coast toward daybreak.

Short term Tuesday
As of 330 pm Monday... Tight pressure gradients between deepening
low pressure offshore and strong high pressure building in from
the NW will persist through Tuesday. Could see some lingering
showers Tuesday morning, especially near the coast, but will
quickly push offshore with dry conditions and decreasing clouds
through the afternoon. Very windy conditions will persist
through the day bringing rough surf conditions along much of the
coast and coastal flooding concerns along the southern pamlico
sound. See tides coastal flooding section below for details.

Continue the wind advisory for the obx and extended to include
down east carteret county for winds to 30-35 mph with gusts up
to 45-50 mph. Temps will be much cooler with highs generally
around 50-55 degrees.

Long term Tuesday night through Monday
As of 300 pm mon... Gusty nne winds and cool temps begin Tuesday
night through mid week. High pressure builds across the area
late week with dry weather and warming temperature trend into
the weekend. Next front will impact region late next weekend.

Tuesday night through wed... Low pressure moving offshore combined
with strong high pressure building in from the north will lead to
strong nne winds this period especially along the coast. Dry weather
expected through Wed with cool temps and gusty nne winds. Highs will
be mainly in the 50s with northern tier possibly holding in the
upper 40s. Tuesday night minimum temps will be the coldest of the
long term period, with low mid 30s inland though decent breeze
should limit threat for frost. Wind gusts Tuesday night will range
40 to 50 mph, thus no changes to ongoing wind advisory. See
tides coastal flood section below for details on possible minor
coastal flooding and high surf.

Wednesday night through Saturday... The high pressure ridge axis will
shift off the new england coast though continue to nose southwest
over eastern nc through the period. Gusty coastal winds will
diminish, and dry weather will continue. Temps may be close to
freezing again for minimum temps early Thursday morning, then
moderate into the 60s by Thursday afternoon. Building heights and
thicknesses will lead to temps rising above climatology by Friday
into Saturday with lower 70s Fri and mid upper 70s Sat inland.

Sunday... Guidance indicates a strong trough will dig into the ohio
river valley on Sunday, with a surface low moving from the southern
great lakes into southern quebec, dragging a cold front through
eastern nc sometime late Sunday into Monday. Big differences amongst
guidance with regards to location timing so will cap pops at chance
for late Sunday into Sunday night. Temperatures remain mild Sunday
with highs in the low mid 70s inland to 60s beaches.

Aviation 19z Monday through Saturday
Short term through tonight ...

as of 2 pm Monday... GenVFR conditions this afternoon with
scattered showers across rtes. A low pressure area and cold
front will approach this evening and push across the area after
midnight. CIGS are expected to lower to MVFR late this evening
with shower coverage continuing to increase ahead of the front.

Could see a period of ifr condition late tonight into tue
morning behind the front with low level moisture lingering
below a strengthening low level inversion.VFR conditions will
return by mid-day Tue with gusty northerly winds to around 25-30
kt across the area through out the day which could bring cross
wind concerns at area terminals.

Long term Tuesday night through Friday ...

as of 300 pm Monday...VFR conditions will prevail for the long
term. Gusty nne winds will persist into Wed especially closer to
coast. High pressure building in from the west through Thu and
sliding offshore fri, leading to a prolonged period ofVFR.

Marine
Short term through tonight ...

as of 4 pm Monday... A storm system approaching from the west
will keep moderate south to southwest winds through the evening
hours. The system will them move through the waters overnight,
leading to a period of more variable winds and widespread
showers and thunderstorms overnight, before passing offshore
very late tonight.

Marine conditions will deteriorate rapidly Tuesday morning as
gusty northeast winds develop behind the departing storm system.

Winds across marine areas are expected to increase from around
10 kt to over 35 kt within only a couple of hours, between about
8z and 14z. Continue the gale warning for all waters except the
inland rivers where the small craft advisory remains. Seas
will remain around 2-4 ft through tonight, then will build
rapidly Tue with guidance showing 10-13 ft north of ocracoke
inlet to 6-10 ft south by Tue afternoon.

Long term Tuesday night through Friday ...

as of 300 pm Monday... Gale warning continues into Tuesday night
for all waters except inland rivers where SCA expected. Tight
gradient between departing low pressure offshore and strong high
to the north will lead to nne winds 25 to 40 kts into Tue night
that will slowly subside Wed into Thu reaching 15 kts by thu
evening. NE winds become light Fri as high pressure builds
across the waters, then as the high moves offshore Sat winds
will become ssw 10 to 15 kts.

Dangerous seas of 8 to 16 feet expected by later Tue that will
only slowly subside to 7 to 13 feet Wed and reach 5 to 8 feet
late thu. As winds become light Fri seas will subside to 4 to 6
feet, then finally drop below SCA levels all waters Sat reaching 2
to 4 feet late.

Tides coastal flooding
As of 300 pm mon... The strong nne winds Tue will lead to very
rough surf and poss some minor coastal flooding that will cont
into mid week. The greatest threat for minor coastal flooding
exists for areas along the southern pamlico sound later Tuesday
into Wednesday morning. The area of greatest concern is
downeast carteret county, where inundation of up to 2 feet for
very low lying areas is possible. A coastal flood advisory will
be issued for counties adjacent to the southern pamlico sound
with this forecast package.

Additionally, very rough surf will develop for the beaches from
cape lookout n... Espcly for the obx N of CAPE hatteras and will
issue a high surf advisory for these areas.

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.
