High pressure will build overhead late tonight and Monday. The high
pressure will shift offshore Tuesday. Low pressure may develop
off the florida coast late Tuesday, and track northeastward along
the southeast coast during mid week.
Near term through tonight
As of 200 pm Sunday...
cold air advection stratocumulus were only over the mountains
of nc this afternoon. Otherwise, the skies were sunny across the
state. Winds continued to be up this afternoon in to the 15-20 mph
range. A 1028 mb surface high pressure was centered over texas, with
a strong CAA pattern with NW flow over the eastern third of the
united states. The high pressure is forecast to move ene to a
position over the southern appalachians of tn nc ga by late tonight.
In addition, the pressure gradient is forecast to really weaken over
our region mid to late evening. This will allow the winds to
weaken to less than 10 mph by mid-evening, then becoming nearly calm
overnight through daybreak. Good to excellent radiational
cooling in the very dry air will allow lows to bottom out into the
27-32 range in most areas.
Short term Monday and Monday night
As of 200 pm Sunday...
high pressure is expected to be overhead Monday into Monday night
with very dry air in place to the surface. Low level thicknesses do
increase some over the western piedmont, with a light southerly
return flow late Monday night. Most of this return flow will likely
remain above the near surface layer given the expected near surface
temperature inversion. Sunny skies are expected Monday with highs of
55-60. Clear skies are expected Monday night with lows from the
upper 20s to lower 30s NE ranging into the mid 30s sw.
Long term Tuesday through Saturday

the medium range portion of the forecast will be dominated by a
trough across the eastern portion of the country, with a series of|
disturbances tracking across both the northern tier of the country
and the gulf coast states southeastern u.S. Temps on Tuesday will be
highly dependent on how much clouds and if we see any precip. For
now will keep temps near to slightly below normal, generally ranging
from the mid to upper 50s NW to the mid 60s se. The best chance for
rain is expected to be on Tuesday night Wednesday morning, albeit a
low chance pop for some light rain.
Quick moving northern stream disturbance is expected to move through
the area on Wednesday morning ending any threat for precip, with
surface high pressure building back into the area. However, another
disturbance is expected to lift northeastward out of the gulf of
mexico and track along the baroclinic zone off the southeast u.S
Thursday into Friday. Medium range have trended further eastward
with the track, resulting in dry conditions across central nc.
However, given the lack of good run to run consistency will hold
onto a slight chance of rain across the southeastern half of the
area on Thursday into Thursday night, with temps turning colder by
Thursday, with highs in the 50s, with some upper 40s. High are
expected to rebound to near seasonal norms by Saturday, generally in
the upper 50s to 60s. Yet another northern stream trough is expected
to move across the area Saturday, resulting in another cool down for
Aviation 18z Sunday through Thursday
As of 1210 pm Sunday...
vfr conditions are expected with high confidence through 18z Monday.
Surface winds from the NW at 10-15kt will become light and variable
tonight and Monday.

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.
