Synopsis
A trough of low pressure will dissipate over the southern
sections tonight. High pressure will extend into the area from
the northwest Friday through the weekend. Hurricane maria is
expected to track between the bahamas and bermuda early next
week.

Near term through tonight
As of 225 pm Thursday... Scattered showers and storms have fired
from greenville to newport and are expected to drift S or se
into the evening. Will have high chc likely pops SW tier thru
aftn then diminish to slight chc this evening as activity
diminishes and pushes to the se. Shld remain dry over nw
sections. Overnight clouds shld diminish and with light to calm
winds expect patchy fog to develop inland. Lows will range from
mid 60s inland to upr 60s around 70 beaches.

Short term Friday
As of 225 pm Thursday... High pressure and drier air will build
into the region with mostly sunny skies across the region. A
few of the models show some spotty shra near cst but think these
shld be very isolated and mainly to the SW so will keep fcst
dry. Shld have highs around 85 inland to lower 80s cst.

Long term Friday night through Thursday
As of 250 pm thu... High pressure centered over the great lakes
will extend down across the region through the period, while we
continue to monitor hurricane maria. Some uncertainty continues
regarding the track of maria. Eastern nc residents and
interested parties should continue to monitor the latest
official forecasts from nhc.

Friday night through Saturday night... Surface high pressure and
upper ridge will continue to build in from the north through
the weekend, as jose gradually weakens and meanders off the ne
and mid-atlantic coast. Pred dry weather expected. Low level
thickness values support above normal temps with highs in the
upper 70s to mid 80s and overnight lows in the mid 60s to low
70s.

Sunday through Wednesday... Hurricane maria is currently
forecast to slowly lift north off the SE coast through mid week.

Eventual track will be determined by several factors including
the strength of the upper ridge and circulation of jose. Latest
guidance has again slowed down and shifted maria slightly
eastward, which should limit impacts felt along the coast. It
is still too soon to determine specific impacts for eastern nc,
which will be very dependent on the track how close to the coast
it gets. Regardless of the exact track, rough surf and
dangerous rip currents are likely this weekend into next week,
as large long period southeast swells build. Gusty N NW winds,
minor coastal flooding, and ocean overwash erosion will be also
possible. Slight chance low chance rain showers, mainly along
the coast, possible through wed. Temps through the period, near
to slightly above normal with highs in the 80s and lows in the
mid 60s low 70s.

Eastern nc residents and interested parties should continue to
monitor the latest official forecasts from NHC on hurricane
maria.

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.
