What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Synopsis
An inland trough offshore high pattern will prevail over the
area today. A cold front will approach from the northwest
tonight and move through the area Monday into Monday night.

High pressure will build into the area Tuesday and gradually
move offshore Wednesday.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
As of 1130 am Sunday... Main change with update was to increase
pops to 30% over all but coastal secions with wording of
scattered tstms for 2-8 pm period. Latest NAM and hrrr support
scattered activity moving into area from w-sw late afternoon
into early evening. With capes near 3500 and 20-30 kt of shear,
isolated wet microbursts will be possible again per SPC day 1
outlook upgrade to marginal severe risk for area. Temps on track
and no change to heat advisory.

Previous discussion
as of 615 am Sunday... Outside of the canadian model, there is a
strong consensus in the other operational and high resolution
models that there will be a minimum in diurnal convection today
through 5 or 6 pm so will continue with isolated to low end
scattered coverage low chance to slight chance afternoon pops.

The most impactful weather will be the combination of heat and
humidity which will produce dangerous heat index values at or
above 105 degrees this afternoon. The coastal plain counties
tend to have deeper mixing and thus lower dewpoints, so heat
index values there will be in the 100-104 degree range and will
leave them out of the heat advisory which is in effect today for
the counties mainly east of highway 70. Highs will be in the
mid 90s inland and around 90 beaches.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 am Monday
As of 310 am Sunday... The cold front will push into the area
tonight and combined with low amplitude shortwave energy, will
lead to scattered showers and thunderstorms. Will keep pops in
the 40-50% range in line with met mav mos. Main threat will be
locally heavy downpours. Lows will generally be in the mid to
upper 70s but rain cooled air could briefly produce a few
readings in the low 70s.

Long term Monday through Saturday
As of 345 am Sunday... A cold front will push through the area
Monday bringing showers and thunderstorms. High pressure will
build into the region from the north Tuesday, then the center of
the high off the mid-atlantic coast Wednesday and extend over
the region through next weekend.

Monday... A broad trough will persist over the area, while a
cold front pushes south and stall along the southern counties of
the forecast area. Ahead of the frontal boundary, CAPE values
are expected to reach AOA 3000-4000 j kg and 0-6 kt to 20-25 kt
by Monday afternoon. This will result to scattered showers and
thunderstorms across eastern nc, especially around the counties
bordering onslow county where SPC day 2 outlook has a marginal
risk for severe weather. Possible threats are locally strong
damaging winds and hail.

Tuesday-Wednesday... The cold front is forecasted to be to the
south of the area as high pressure builds in from the north
Tuesday and off the mid-atlantic coast Wednesday. Expect a
typical summer pattern, where enough residual moisture and
instability behind the front to warrant low chance pops each day
for a few mainly diurnally driven showers or storms. Temps will
be closer to normal values in the low to mid 80s.

Thursday-Sunday... The high pressure will extend over the area
from the western atlantic while a piedmont trough develops
inland. A southernly flow returns bringing warm humid airmass
across the area. This will allow for diurnally driven scattered
showers and thunderstorms across the area for each day. Expect
highs in back into the 90s inland and mid upper 80s along the
obx.

Aviation 16z Sunday through Thursday
Short term through 12z Monday ...

as of 615 am Sunday... Consensus of the models is for only
widely scattered convection before 6 pm today thus will forecast
prevailingVFR conditions through 22z and vcts thereafter.

After 00z forcing associated with an approaching cold front is
expected to trigger more numerous shower and thunderstorm
activity.

Long term Monday through Thursday ...

as of 345 am Sunday... VFR conditions will persist through the
period, except for Monday as the cold front pushes through the
area; bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms resulting to
occasional sub-vfr conditions. Additional showers and
thunderstorms are expected each day as high pressure builds in
from the north.

Marine
Short term through tonight ...

as of 1130 am Sunday... No changes with update. Winds have
diminished to 15-20 kt as expected this morning but latest
guidance supports increasing winds again this afternoon into
tonight.

Previous discussion
as of 615 am Sunday... Small craft advisory conditions will
continue across the waters through tonight in prefrontal sw
flow. SW winds currently diminished 10 to 15 kt with a few gusts
around 20 kt. Winds are forecast to increase to 20-25 kt late
this afternoon into tonight ahead of the approaching cold front.

Winds will then diminish back to 15 kt around dawn Monday. Seas
will be 3 to 5 ft for most of today, building to 4 to 6 ft late
today and tonight.

Long term Monday through Thursday ...

as of 345 am Sunday... A cold front will push through the coastal
waters Monday. Winds will shift from the wsw W 10-20 knots to
ne and diminish to 5 to 15 kt behind the front. NE 10-15 kt
will continue Tue as high pressure builds in from the north,
then veering SE Wed and becoming S 5-15 kt Thursday. Seas
subside 3-4 ft by Monday afternoon, then 2 to 4 ft through the
rest of the period.

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