Synopsis
A frontal boundary just to the south will dissipate tonight.

High pressure will extend over the area from offshore Monday
through Wednesday, then a stronger cold front will move through
Thursday.

Near term through tonight
As of 215 pm sun... Weak high pressure will extend over area
from n-ne with surface boundary dissipating offshore. Convective
activity expected to remain offshore during evening, but some
isolated threat along coast overnight with light onshore flow.

Patchy fog and low clouds possible for mainly inland sections
late tonight with light winds. Lows will range from lower 70s
coastal plain to mid 70s coast.

Short term Monday
As of 215 pm sun... Hot and humid weather expected with inland
highs into the lower 90s and dewpoints in the mid 70s, keeping
muggy weather around. Most of the area will remain dry but
leftover moisture will linger over southern sections from the
dissipated front. It will be here that a isolated showers or
storms will be possible mainly during the peak heating of the
day.

Long term Monday night through Saturday
As of 230 pm Sunday... Forecast remains on track with a quiet
start to the week followed by increasing chances for rain
Wednesday into Thursday. Much cooler weather still expected by
weeks end.

Monday night Tuesday... Hot and humid weather expected both days
with inland highs into the 90s and dewpoints in the mid 70s,
keeping muggy weather around. Most of the area will remain dry
but a front that has stalled over our area now will wash out
over the southern part of our forecast area. It will be here
that a few showers or storms will be possible during the peak
heating of the day. Pwats will be closer to climo this period,
or around 1.5 to 1.75". This will make locally heavy rain a bit
less of a concern than it was the past few days with pwats well
above the 2" mark.

Wednesday into Thursday... A cold front will move into north
carolina Wednesday and will be moving through our area Wednesday
night into Thursday. Slowed the progression of the front
slightly with this update, closer to wpc guidance ECMWF than
faster gfs. This front will be an anafront with the best chance
for precipitation along and behind it. With that thinking will
maintain high chance pops (50%) ahead of the front Wednesday
afternoon, with the most likely period for raining coming
Wednesday night into Thursday. With a good chunk of Wednesday
looking dry we will make another run at 90 inland. By Thursday
however cooler air aloft, clouds, and rain chances will cap
temps in the lower 80s.

Friday into Sunday... .If you like the cooler weather for
Thursday, you will love our forecast heading into next weekend.

Highs will remain in the lower 80s through Sunday, with lows at
night in the 60s! Confidence in pops Friday is low, with model
blends continuing to indicate a low chance pop along the
immediate coast, but there is still a chance the precip is
mostly off the coast Friday. Drier air makes a more substantial
push Saturday into Sunday, which will dry us out along with
increase our chances for some sunshine.

Aviation 18z Sunday through Friday
Short term through mon
as of 215 pm sun...VFR through late this evening. Guidance
supports repeat of ifr fog stratus again late tonight mainly
inland from the coast, with weak high pressure extending over
area from ne. Any fog will burn off by mid-morning Monday with
mostly clear skies. An isolated thunderstorm is possible at ewn
and oaj in the afternoon, with dry conditions forecast at pgv
and iso. Winds will be calm overnight and southeast around 5
knots Monday.

Long term Monday night through Friday ...

as of 230 pm Sunday...VFR through Tuesday. SubVFR conditions
possible late Wednesday into Thursday in scattered showers and
storms. NE flow could keep low stratus into Thursday night
before we see a return to predominateVFR Friday.

Marine
Short term through mon
as of 215 pm sun... Quiet boating conditions continue through
Monday. Weak high pressure will build in from the north and
extend over the area tonight into Monday. Winds will be mainly
east to northeast across the marine area at 10 knots or less,
with seas 2-3 feet.

Long term Monday night through Friday ...

as of 230 pm Sunday... Quiet boating conditions continue through
Tuesday mid day. During this period winds will be 10 kts or
less with wave heights 2 to 3 feet. With a boundary near the
coastal waters wind directions will vary quite a bit during this
time depending on location on the water (north to south).

Tuesday afternoon and evening winds begin to increase out of
the south as a front approaches and by Tuesday night marine
conditions become less favorable. Ahead of the front southwest
winds increase 10 to 20 kt, with seas building to 3 to 4 feet as
a gradient tightens ahead of the front. We may see a few 5
footers outer central waters during this time.

Winds will decrease to around 10 kt and seas will subside to 3
to 4 feet Wednesday night as the front begins moving into the
area. The front will make its way through the waters on
Thursday. Thursday will see variable winds around 10 kt and seas
2 to 3 feet. Winds will be shifting with the frontal passage
and begin to increase out of the northeast Thursday night to a
solid 15 kt with seas building to 3 to 4 feet.

By Friday we will be in solid NE flow 15 to 20 kt with seas
building to 4 to 5 feet.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
