Synopsis
An area of low pressure will across eastern north carolina
today then lift quickly north of the area tonight pushing a cold
front offshore. High pressure will ridge into the region Friday
through the weekend.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
As of 1230 pm Thursday... Surface analysis this morning
continues to show a strong 1035+ mb high centered over new
england ridging south down the east coast into nc while low
pressure slowly strengthens just north of wilmington, nc. The
low is forecast to continue to move nne across eastern nc this
afternoon into early evening along east of highway 17. This
system will produce a variety of impacts across eastern nc
including: 1) strong coastal winds through early evening 2)
minor soundside flooding over the western pamlico sound 3) heavy
rains with local 2+ inches of rain possible east of highway 17
and 4) the potential for severe thunderstorms mainly along the
immediate coast from the crystal coast to the outer banks.

Initial area of heavy rains has moved east of highway 17 early
this afternoon. With no additional heavy rains expected west of
highway 17 remainder of today will cancel the flash flood watch
there early at 1 pm. Heavy rain continue along the coast. Expect
this rain to move offshore around 2 pm, however, the high
resolution models indicate a line of deep convection developing
ahead of the surface cold front and moving across the area 3-6
pm so will continue eastern watch until 22z. A brief window for
severe weather along the coast will continue through about 22z
especially with the secondary line of convection that is
forecast to develop. This line is forecast to be strongest when
it moves into the marginally unstable airmass located along the
coast. The primary threat will be damaging wind gusts and
isolated tornadoes given large values of low-level shear despite
minimal instability which would be enough to support supercell
development. In additional to the severe weather threat, a flash
flood watch continues in effect east of highway 17. Latest wpc
forecasts show local amounts of 2 inches of rain possible
today. This rainfall, in addition to the 2-4 inches that fell
Tuesday morning, could lead to localized flooding of low-lying
areas. By early evening, any threat of severe weather should
end and leftover precipitation should quickly move offshore.

The low will produce strong winds along the immediate coast just
east of it's track and will continue the outer banks wind advisory
for gusts to 45 mph.

There will again be a large temperature gradient across the area
today, with highs surging into the lower to mid 70s SE coast
and only around 60 northern coastal plain. Categorical pops for
most of the day will taper off mid afternoon through early this
evening from west to east.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 am Friday
As of 3 am Thursday... Any precipitation should be offshore
shortly after 00z (7 pm). Dewpoints should really crash after
midnight as cooler and drier air moves over eastern nc behind
the quickly departing low. Gusty wnw NW winds will help drop
temperatures into the upper 30s to mid 40s by morning with lows
around 50 on the outer banks.

Long term Friday through Wednesday
As of 215 am thurs... Drier high pressure will build in late
week through this weekend, and then a week coastal trough
develops by Monday and could bring some rain showers to the
coast. High pressure will then build in again through midweek.

Temps will generally be near climo.

Friday through Sunday... High pressure will build in from the
west on Friday, and continue to ridge into eastern nc this
weekend. It will be a bit cooler as much of the us will be
under a longwave trough. However, a modest warming trend will
be present this weekend, with highs Friday in the mid to upper
50s, and then by Sunday high temps will reach the low to mid 60s
across eastern nc. Low temps will dip to the mid 30s interior,
and low to mid 40s near the beaches (except obx which will
remain in upper 40s).

Monday through Wednesday... A weak coastal trough will develop
early Monday morning, and will bring the threat for showers to
coastal areas. Have the best chances of rain through the morning
hours, and then taper off pops from west to east later in the
day. Then, for Tuesday and Wednesday high pressure will build
back into the area from the north, with dry conditions expected.

High temperatures will reach the low to mid 60s Monday, and then
cool down to the mid to upper 50s Tuesday and Wednesday. Lows
will be around average in the mid upper 30s to low mid 40s.

Aviation 18z Thursday through Tuesday
Short term through 18z Friday ...

as of 102 pm Thursday... Widespread ifr conditions prevail
across our area this afternoon with periods of MVFR with some
breaks in the clouds. Rain generally coming to an end at all
sites although a few lingering showers in the next couple of
hours cannot be ruled out. Latest hi-res guidance suggesting
these breaks continue for the next couple of hours as low lifts
north before a more uniform ifr cloud deck pushes in again late
this afternoon. Lower ceilings quickly give way toVFR skies
overnight with the advection of much drier air into the region.

Winds will quickly shift with passage of the low to mainly
westerly at around 10 knots with higher gusts by late afternoon.

Long term Friday through Sunday ...

as of 230 am thurs...VFR conditions are expected through the
long term as high pressure builds into the region.

Marine
Short term today and tonight ...

as of 1230 pm Thursday... No changes to previous thinking
surface low continues to strengthen over eastern nc and the
gradient between the low and a strong high over new england will
keep a tight gradient and strong winds through early evening.

Gale force winds continue with gusts to 45 knots at diamond buoy
and seas to around 15 ft. With these rough conditions, will
continue the high surf advisory as gale warnings remain in
effect for all coastal waters and the pamlico sound through
early this evening. While winds may subside just a bit this
evening, they should increase again overnight as another surge
occurs behind the exiting low. Overall, very poor marine
conditions can be expected through the remainder of the week.

Long term Friday through Monday ...

as of 230 am thurs... Strong winds continue Friday morning with
winds W 25-30 kts, with gusts to 35 kts. Winds will subside
through the morning hours, becoming W 15-20 kts by the
afternoon. Winds will become the N NE 5-15 kts Saturday and
Sunday, and then a coastal trough develops Monday, and causes
winds to turn to the NW at 10-15 kts.

Seas will initially be 6-10 ft. Friday morning, but will
subside to 4-6 ft by mid afternoon. Seas will then become mostly
2-4 ft. Saturday through Monday.

Tides coastal flooding
As of 945 am thu... Strong easterly onshore flow will lead to
waves in surf zone building to 8 feet or greater... Espcly from
cape lookout n. High surf advisory continues into this evening
from carteret county north to outer banks. The strong easterly
flow will also produce minor soundside flooding over the western
pamlico sound with water levels 2-3 ft above normal.

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.
