Synopsis
High pressure centered over the great lakes and northeast states will
extend south into our region through early next week.

Near term through tonight
As of 140 pm Saturday...

a weak broad upper trough over the SE us will drift west today and
tonight with central nc becoming under the increasing influence of
the stacked anticyclone expanding eastward into the mid-atlantic
region. This will allow for dry conditions and a nearly cloud free
sky, aside from some very thin patchy cirrus clouds.

Some patchy fog will again be possible with overnight lows generally
in the lower to mid 60s, with even a few upper 50s in the cold rural
areas.

Short term Sunday and Sunday night
As of 140 pm Saturday...

stacked ridging and associated subsidence will support a dry and
stable air mass with a continuation of above-normal temperatures
across central nc. Meanwhile, hurricane maria will track north
through the open waters of the western atlantic. As pressure
gradient begins to tighten up ever so slightly, a steady 5 to 10
mph northerly breeze will make it very pleasant, despite the warm
temperatures. Highs in the mid to upper 80s. Lows in the 60s.

Long term Monday through Saturday
As of 100 pm Saturday...

expect gradual overspreading high cloudiness well ahead of hurricane
maria as early as Monday night. The official track has been
gradually nudged west, and the latest forecast would still keep
maria far enough offshore to preclude significant impacts aside from
gustiness from 20 to 25 mph in the coastal plain Tuesday and
Wednesday. Will introduce a slight chance of showers in the coastal
plain as well on Tuesday and Wednesday to account for the potential
of banded convection wrapping into the area. Highs will continue to
reach the mid and upper 80s through Thursday after morning lows in
the mid and upper 60s.

A long wave trof amplifying down the ohio valley will drive maria
offshore late week, and we will have a welcome airmass change as an
initial surge of dry cooler air drives east on Friday. Highs Friday
will be in the upper 70s to lower 80s, cooling further as the trof
continues to amplify, with highs next weekend solidly in the 70s.

Aviation 18z Saturday through Thursday
As of 140 pm Saturday...

24 hour TAF period: surface high pressure will extend southward into
nc today, generally resulting inVFR conditions through Sunday.

Patchy MVFR ground fog is possible at all terminals tonight,
with some periods of ifr lifr at krwi.

Outlook: generallyVFR conditions are expected through mid-week
the approach of hurricane maria towards the nc coast will result in
breezy conditions by Wednesday with northerly wind gusts as high
as 25 to 35 kts, strongest at eastern terminals.

Rah watches warnings advisories
None.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
