631 pm edt Tue oct 16 2018

Synopsis
A frontal boundary will stall across the area through tonight,
then push offshore Wednesday morning. A stronger but dry cold
front will push across the Wednesday night with high pressure
building in from the northwest late in the week. Another cold
front is expected to move through the area this weekend,
followed by dry and cool conditions early next week.

Near term until 6 am Wednesday morning
As of 630 pm Tuesday... The cold front continues to push west
across the area and is currently near trenton and swansboro.

The front is expected to reverse course and move back northeast
into the area late evening and overnight as a mid level
shortwave traverses the area with a weak low pressure area
moving along the front after midnight. Shower activity has
increased in coverage intensity over extreme southeast nc near
and west of wilmington. We expect this activity to increase
further in coverage by late this evening as forcing increases
with the aforementioned shortwave moving across the area.

Isolated to scattered thunderstorms possible with strong 0-6km
bulk shear around 50 kt in place. A few storms could produce
damaging wind gusts and SPC has placed southern portions of the
area in a marginal risk for severe storms. Modest instability
and mid-level lapse rates will limit the overall severe threat
however. Locally heavy rains are also likely with amounts of an
inch or more in frequent downpours possible. Mild temps
overnight with lows in the low to mid 60s inland and north coast
to upper 60s expected along southern coastal sections.

Short term 6 am Wednesday morning through 6 pm Wednesday
As of 345 pm Tuesday... The shortwave moves offshore early with
the cold front pushing offshore through the morning with winds
becoming NW throughout the area as CAA increases. Shower chances
continue during the morning but quickly pushes offshore by
early afternoon with clearing skies through the afternoon hours.

Little diurnal temp range expected with highs in the lower 70s
nw sections to mid 70s elsewhere and perhaps a few upper 70s
southern coastal sections.

Long term Wednesday night through Tuesday
As of 315 am tue... The second cold front pushes through
Wednesday night, followed by a drier and cooler airmass to
filter into the region; bringing seasonal fall weather for the
forecast period.

Wednesday night through Friday... A reinforcing dry cold front
will push across the area Wednesday night ushering in a cooler
airmass as the high builds into the region from the nw. The
center of the high will move offshore Friday afternoon.

Beautiful fall weather Thursday and Friday with highs in the
60s. Expect overnight lows to drop into the 40s inland and mid
50s coast Wednesday and Thursday nights. Friday night lows are
expected to be slightly warmer as high pressure moves offshore
and brings warm southernly flow; expect lows in the 50s across
the area.

Saturday through early next week... The latest models (gfs euro)
continue to show good agreement with a significant longwave trough
to sink down from the northern plains towards the carolinas during
this period. At surface, a cold front is progged to approach the
area Saturday, along with rain showers associated with it.

Afterward, models have high pressure building into the region,
bringing more fall weather to the area.

Aviation 22z Tuesday through Sunday
Short term through Wednesday ...

as of 630 pm Tuesday... Expecting widespread subVFR conditions
to develop by 3z (11 pm) as a front moves back into the area and
precipitation in the form of showers and thunderstorms increase
across eastern nc. This increase in low level moisture will
produce lowering CIGS overnight. Ifr lifr conditions expected
north of the frontal boundary and MVFR ifr to the south. The
shortwave moves offshore early Wednesday with the front moving
offshore during the morning. Expect precip to end at the
terminals by mid day with clearing skies through the afternoon
and prevailingVFR by early evening.

Long term Wednesday night through Sunday ...

as of 315 am tue...VFR conditions for most of the week, except
for Saturday as MVFR and possible ifr under rainy conditions.

Marine
Short term through Wednesday ...

as of 630 pm Tuesday... A frontal boundary has pushed into the
extreme southern waters near new river inlet early this evening
with NE winds around 10-15 kt north of the front and W to sw
winds around 10-15 kt to the south. The front is expected to
stall across southern waters early this evening, then lift a
little north overnight as a mid level system and weak surface
low move across the area. SW winds around 15-20 kt expected
across the southern waters late tonight and variable less than
15 kt across the central northern waters. The front will push
back through the waters Wednesday morning with winds becoming nw
around 10-15 kt through the day. Seas currently 3-5 ft northern
waters and 2-3 ft southern waters. Seas expected to diminish
slightly this evening then build some late tonight, especially
southern waters where SW flow is the strongest. Seas generally
2-4 ft Wednesday.

Long term Wednesday night through Sunday ...

as of 315 am tue... A secondary cold front will push through
the coastal water Wednesday evening leading to a surge of
stronger winds after the frontal passage and then another cold
front this weekend.

North winds 20-25 knots will lead to small craft conditions
Wednesday night through most of Thursday. Seas will range from 4
to 6 feet, highest over the central and northern waters.

Thursday night, winds start to diminish 10-20 knots and then
5-10 knots Friday as the high pressure center is over the area.

Seas will subside below 6 ft Thursday night and becoming 2-4 ft
Friday. Winds will increase again as the gradient tightens with
the next approaching cold front Saturday with SW winds 15-25
knots and seas building 3-5 ft.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
