Synopsis
A cold front will move quickly across eastern north carolina today
and move offshore by this evening. High pressure builds in from
the west by Friday into Monday. Another cold front will
pass through the area Tuesday night.

Near term through today
As of 340 am Thursday... Eastern nc is in the warm sector ahead
of a strong cold front now crossing the mountains from tennessee
into north carolina. Rainfall has been rather spotty through the
night but is starting to increase in our western CWA with more
widespread and heavier rain across the central carolinas. Based
on latest hrrr 3km NAM models, most of the precipitation will
arrive in our area after 12z then move quickly offshore around
18-20z. Heavy downpours are likely with upwards of an inch
possible which may produce minor flooding of low-lying areas. A
wind advisory remains in effect for outer banks dare, mainland
dare, outer banks hyde and carteret counties as wind gusts of
45-50 mph will be possible through early afternoon. Some
isolated thunderstorms are possible, but limited instability
will likely preclude any severe storms, but showers will mix
down the strong gradient winds as local vad wind profile shows
45-55 knot winds in the 1000-3000 foot level. High temperatures
will be reached prior to 18z, in the mid upper 60s, before
dropping this afternoon as dewpoints crash after 18z into the
early evening. The rainfall should be well offshore by sunset.

Short term tonight
As of 340 am Thursday... With impressive dewpoint drops into the
upper 20s by morning, temperatures will be on the order of 25
degrees cooler than this morning with readings in the low mid
30s, except around 40 outer banks. NW winds should gradually
subside toward morning.

Long term Friday night through Wednesday
As of 230 am thu... A dry and cooler airmass, along with mostly
clear skies, will spread across the region in the wake of the
front passing through today. Highs will range in the mid upper
40s Fri and sat. Morning lows will be in the mid to upper 20s
sat morning. Temps will warm steadily from Sun through tue, as
the high across the southeast shifts off the coast and winds
become southwest ahead of the next cold front. Highs will start
out in the lower mid 50s sun, warming to the upper 50s lower 60s
tue. Morning lows will be in the mid 20s west to mid 30s sat
morning, then upper 30s west to upper 40s outer banks by tue
morning. The next chance for rain comes with the next cold
front, forecast to pass through Tue night. Behind the front on
wed, under mostly clear skies, highs will be back in the mid 40s
after morning lows in the 30s.

Aviation 07z Thursday through Monday
Short term through 06z Friday ...

as of 1 am Thursday... Using the latest hrrr and 3km NAM as
guides, ceilings should lower to MVFR by 10z as the steadier and
at time heavy precipitation arrives. Could see some occasional
ifr conditions through mid-afternoon today. Gusty S SW winds of
up to 25-30 mph are expected, along with bouts of low-level wind
shear. Conditions should improve toVFR by late afternoon as
winds become NW and usher drier air into the area.

Long term Thursday night through Monday ...

as of 230 am thu...VFR mostly skc through the period.

Marine
Short term today and tonight ...

as of 345 am Thursday... Very rough marine conditions expected
today ahead of a strong cold front as a strong low-level
southerly jet develops across the area. Latest vad wind profile
from mhx shows 45-55 knot winds in the 1000-3000 foot layer.

These gusty winds will likely be mixed down as precipitation
increases this morning. Already seeing gusts in excess of 30
knots over the far northern waters. Southerly winds of 25-35
knots with gusts as high as 40-50 knots will likely over the
coastal waters, with gusts up to 40-45 knots on the sounds
through early afternoon. As the winds become NW by this evening,
they should diminish, but seas will remain elevated through the
short term period. Seas will peak at as high as 18 feet over the
central waters this morning and early afternoon.

Long term Fri through Mon ...

as of 230 am thu... Winds will be 5-15 kts through the period.

Flow will be northwest Friday and Friday night, then generally
westerly through the remainder of the period. Small craft seas
Friday will subside as high pressure builds across the region
with light winds, with heights averaging 2-4 ft Sat through mon.

Tides coastal flooding
As of 300 am thu... Strong winds today will lead to high water
levels on the soundside of the outer banks north of cape
hatteras, where inundation up to 1 foot will be possible. High
surf is expected across the southern facing beaches with minor
beach erosion possible.

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.
