Synopsis
High pressure will build in from the west today, and then shift
offshore Thursday. High pressure remains offshore through the
weekend with troughing inland through early next week.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
As of 930 am wed... Temperatures have quickly warmed into the
mid-60's inland, and into the low-70's near the coast.

Temperatures will continue to quickly rise, with abundant
sunshine throughout the area. Afternoon highs are expected to
reach the mid upper 80s inland, and the low 80s along the coast.

Dry and mostly sunny weather is expected today, with high
pressure overhead and light winds initially N NE then shifting
ne E as the high pressure begins to move off of the coast this
afternoon into the evening.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 am Thursday
As of 645 am wed... Another clear night is expected with high
pressure in control. Low temps Wednesday night will not drop as
low as this morning, as winds become sse and low level moisture
subtly returns to the region. Still, lows to around 60 are
expected inland, with upper 60s to low 70s likely along the
coast.

Long term Thursday through Tuesday
As of 4 am Wednesday... High pressure will shift off the coast
Thursday with return southerly flow developing. Unsettled
weather returns Friday afternoon through Tuesday as scattered
showers and thunderstorms will be possible each day.

Thursday... Dry weather is expected through Thursday as high
pressure slowly shifts off the mid-atlantic coast. Winds become
more southeasterly on Thursday, allowing dew points to build
back into the mid 60s by late afternoon. Low level thicknesses
will range 1390-1400 meters Thursday, yielding MAX temps in the
mid to upper 80s across eastern nc, with low 80s along the
coast.

Friday... A weak upper level disturbance will move into the
region Friday morning originating from the gulf of mexico.

Latest guidance indicates showers possible for the southern
half of the CWA on Friday. Will maintain trend of slight chance
pops increasing from the south starting late Thursday night into
early Friday morning. Pops increase to 20 to 40 percent Friday,
highest across southern areas. Shower thunderstorm activity
will shift to the coast and coastal waters Friday night and have
chance pops along the coast for this. High temps will reach the
upper 80s inland with mid 80s for coastal areas.

Saturday through Tuesday... Scattered showers thunderstorms are
possible each afternoon from Saturday to Tuesday and move
towards the coast overnight. Have broad chance pops for this
period with the highest pops over inland areas during the day,
and along the coast at night. A weak front may aid shower and
thunderstorm development Sunday. High temps will range from the
low 90s inland to mid 80s near the coast, with lows in the
lower to mid 70s.

Aviation 14z Wednesday through Sunday
Short term through 12z Thursday ...

as of 645 am wed...VFR conditions are expected through Thursday
morning when at least MVFR fog is expected to develop. Winds
today will be light out of the ne, then turn ene later in the
afternoon under cloudless skies. With clear skies expected to
persist overnight, and calm winds likely, prime radiational
cooling conditions are expected. MVFR fog is likely at all taf
sites with kpgv, kiso, and koaj having the best chances. There
is potential for more dense fog to develop, but will defer from
including in the TAF for now.

Long term Thursday through Sunday ...

as of 4 pm Wednesday...VFR conditions are expected to prevail
through the period. Some brief sub-vfr periods are possible
Friday afternoon through Sunday as scattered showers and
thunderstorms will be possible, and could see some periods of
MVFR-ifr fog low stratus early mornings beginning on Friday.

Marine
Short term Wednesday and Wednesday night ...

as of 930 am wed... Winds for the rest of Wednesday and into
Wednesday night will generally be out of the N NE at 10-15 kts,
with gusts to 20 kts, turning to the E later Wednesday evening.

Seas will mostly be 2-3 ft through the period.

Long term Thursday night through Sunday ...

as of 4 am Wednesday... Fair boating conditions expected through
the long term, especially Thursday. Winds will shift SE Thursday
and remain light. SE flow around 10 kt gradually becomes more
southerly by Thursday night into Friday. By Saturday winds
become more southwest and increase to 10-15 kts. This will
continue into Sunday. Could see periods of 15 to 20 kt in the
outer waters Saturday and Sunday. Seas will be mostly 2-3 ft,
with some 4 ft seas possible beginning Saturday across the outer
fringes of the central and southern waters. Nwps and wavewatch
appeared in good agreement through the medium range, with
wavewatch reasonable for the extended period.

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.
