944 am edt Thu apr 27 2017

Synopsis
High pressure over the atlantic will continue to extend over
eastern nc through the weekend producing above normal
temperatures. A cold front will approach from the west Monday
and cross late Monday night or early Tuesday. High pressure will
build in behind the front Wednesday.

Near term /rest of today/
As of 945 am thu... No big changes with morning update. Only a 20
pop for iso showers across the obx and downeast carteret through
rest of the morning as some sprinkles grazing the coast here.

Previous discussion... As of 655 am thu... Latest sfc analysis
shows stacked low slowly moving along the NE coast early this
morning, as high pressure extends over eastern nc from offshore.

992mb low over northern il/eastern wi and associated front
draped through the gulf states will continue to push eastward
with moisture gradually increasing across the carolinas today.

Latest satellite imagery shows area of sct/bkn clouds pushing
through the albemarle sound region and northern obx this
morning, increased sky cover for the next few hours. Very warm
and dry day expected across the region, with low level thickness
values and ssw supporting temps several degrees above normal,
with highs generally 80-85 degrees.

Short term /tonight/
As of 655 am thu... Surface low will lift northward into the
great lakes region and southern ontario, as front pushes into
the mid-atlantic and SE us. Dampening shortwave energy
associated with this feature could be enough to support isolated
to widely scattered showers and storms overnight. High res
models show line of precip associated with this feature having a
difficult time pushing east of the mountains, but models are in
good agreement showing weakening line approaching the coastal
plain after 03/04z. Will continue sc/low chance pops, with best
chances across the northern tier late. Overnight lows in the
upper 60s/low 70s.

Long term /Friday through Wednesday/
As of 230 am thu... Warm and mainly dry through the weekend then
rain chances increase early next week as a cold front crosses
the area late Monday night into early Tuesday. Temps are
forecast to briefly cool down to normal levels behind the front
Tuesday.

Friday... Remnants of a short wave may produce widely sct
convection Fri morn espcly cst then mainly dry rest of the day
with just isold convection poss along inland moving sea breeze.

With good deal of Sun and SW winds will be very warm with highs
approaching 90 inland with upr 70s/low 80s cst.

Sat and sun... This period will be dominated by surface high
pressure offshore with ridging aloft. Precip chances look
minimal with just a few widely sct shra/tsra poss each
afternoon and evening assoc with sea breeze. With predominately
southwest flow thru the weekend will have very warm temps with
highs 85 to around 90 inland and upper 70s to lower 80s
beaches. Early summer like lows in the 60s to lower 70s.

Mon through wed... A cold front will approach from the W Mon and
slowly cross the region Mon night and early tue. Will remain
warm Mon with chc of some convection espcly inland during the
aftn as the front approaches. Models continue to indicate a
decent coverage of precipitation Mon night/early Tue with the
front sliding offshore late Tue with lingering shra ending from
w to e. Highs Mon will again climb well into the 80s then cool
into the 70s Tue behind the front. High pressure is forecast to
build into the area Wed with temps moderating into the low 80s
inland.

Aviation /14z Thursday through Monday/
Short term /through tonight/...

as of 655 am thu...VFR conditions expected through the period.

Sct CU expected to develop this afternoon. Ssw wind gusts
15-20kt today. Could see isolated to widely scattered
showers/tstms push into the area ahead of a cold front tonight,
with best chances at pgv. Low confidence at this time, but
there is the potential for sub-vfr ceilings to develop late
tonight and early Friday morning.

Long term /fri through Monday/...

as of 230 am thu...VFR should dominate most of this period.

Widely sct shra and tsra possible early Fri as weakening short
wave crosses... Otherwise mainly dry with just isold late day
shra/tsra poss with sea breeze Sat and Sunday. Cold front will
be approaching from the W later Mon and may see a bit better
coverage of shra and storms inland with brief subVFR poss. Sw
flow around offshore high pres shld limit threat for late night
fog thru the period.

Short term /through tonight/...

as of 655 am thu... Latest obs show s/sw winds 5-15kt, strongest
over the outer central waters, with seas 3-6 feet. High
pressure will continue to extend over the waters through the
period. Gradient will tighten late today and tonight, as a cold
front approaches from the west. S/sw winds increase to 15-20kt
this evening, with seas building to 4-7 feet south of oregon
inlet. Will initialize with SCA for the central waters with
41025 still hovering at 6 ft, and nwps model keeps 6 ft seas
across the central waters through the period. SCA seas develop
south of ocracoke this evening.

Long term /fri through mon/...

as of 230 am thu... Moderate SW flow of 10 to 20 kts expected
thru Sat night around offshore high pres. These winds combined
with some lingering swell should lead to 6 foot seas outer
central and SRN wtrs Thu night into fri... Otherwise seas of 3
to 5 feet rest of the period. On Sunday the the flow is

creek in hookerton is expected to crest above moderate flood
stage. The NE CAPE fear river in chinquapin and neuse river in
kinston expected to reach minor flooding. The roanoke river is

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.
