Synopsis
High pressure will build over the region today and tonight.

Another strong storm system will affect the area Friday into
the weekend. High pressure will gradually build in from the
west early next week.

Near term today
As of 950 am wed... No significant changes needed. Satellite
imagery shows increasing mid and high clouds from the west
today. Ridge of high pres will build across the region today
with very light winds. Low and mid lvls are dry however mdls all
show good deal of upper lvl moisture pushing in from mid
morning on. Hard to determine how opaque the high clouds will be
but shld see periods of pc skies this aftn. No change to high
temps with upper 40s NE to low mid 50s rest of region.

Short term tonight
As of 215 am wed... High pressure will continue over the region
tonight with mclr to pc skies. Good radiational cooling will
lead to lows around 30 inland to mid upr 30s beaches.

Long term Thursday through Tuesday
As of 215 am wed... The first half of the long term will be very
wet, with dry for the second half. GFS and ECMWF in good
agreement concerning the placement of what will be a cutoff mid-
level low moving across the deep south. The primary concern
with this system continues to be the threat of heavy rainfall,
as a consensus of the gfs ECMWF shows 2-4 inches of rain. With
already swollen creeks and rivers, this could cause additional
flooding of low-lying areas. Strong gusty SE S winds will also
be likely with this system. Tweaked the onset of rain on Friday
over the outer banks, with dry conditions in the morning, then
chance pops in the afternoon. Continued categorical pops Friday
night across the entire area. Instability for thunder continues
to look marginal Friday night, so kept chance wording for
thunder. Plenty of wraparound moisture for showers Saturday
lingering into Sunday. HPC now favoring the progressive gfs
solution for early next week with low pressure moving off to the
northeast and high pressure building in from the west, instead
of the ECMWF which favors developing low pressure just off the
coast early next week.

Aviation 15z Wednesday through Sunday
Short term through tonight ...

as of 615 am wed...VFR conditions should dominate thru the period
as high pres builds across. Low and mid lvls will remain dry
however mdls show good deal of upper lvl moisture spreading in
today into the evening so expect sct bkn cirrus.

Long term Thu through Sunday ...

as of 145 am wed... Mainly sub-vfr conditions through the period
as a very wet slow-moving system passes through the southeast.

Surface winds south around 5 knots thu, southeast 10-15 knots
fri, southwest 10-15 knots Sat and north 10-15 knots sun.

Marine
Short term through tonight ...

as of 950 am wed... Dropped SCA for the central waters. Latest
obs show NW N winds 5-10 kt, with gusts to 15 kt across the
outer waters, and seas 2-5 ft. High pres will build in from the
w today and cont over the area tonight. Winds will diminish to
light and variable by evening and cont very light tonight. Seas
will subside to 2 to 4 feet later today and be mainly 2 to 3
feet tonight.

Long term Thu through Sunday ...

as of 215 am wed... Thursday will be the only good boating day
in the long term period. A strong storm system will be passing
through the southeast producing an extended period of hazardous
winds seas beginning Friday and continuing through Sunday. Winds
thu will be mainly west to northwest 5-10 knots with seas 2-3
feet. Friday into Saturday the flow will veer from southeast to
southwest, eventually becoming northwest Sunday. Seas will
build, peaking Friday night into Saturday as high as 9-12 feet
in the central waters from oregon inlet to ocracoke. Strongest
winds will peak Friday into Friday night at 20-30 knots, with a
few gusts to gale force possible in the central waters. Winds

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.
