Synopsis
Arctic high pressure over the southeastern united states will slowly
move south through Saturday. This will allow a much milder southwest
flow, especially noticeable this weekend.

Near term through tonight
As of 1000 am Friday...

little change required to the near term forecast. May cancel the
winter weather advisory for black ice prior to 12 pm expiration as
sfc temperatures warm well above freezing.

12z gso upper air sounding depicts a strong sfc based inversion.

While temperatures at the surface were in the lower 20s, at 300 ft
agl, temperatures were in the upper 30s. In addition, the sounding
depicted a deep wly flow overhead. A minor S W passing to our north
and a weak area of high pressure to our south will maintain this wly
flow through tonight. The mild air mass aloft coupled with abundant
sunshine will go a long way in eroding the snowpack over portions of
central nc today. Still, the relatively deep snowpack over portions
of the northern piedmont will still modify temperatures. So while
areas that have bare ground will see afternoon temperatures in the
lower 50s, temperatures in the low-mid 40s will be common where
widespread snow covers the ground.

Tonight, while the air mass will continue to experience modification
thanks to the wly flow, residual snowpack will continue to influence
temperatures. Thus, expect another night early morning with a wide
variance in minimum temperatures, ranging from the mid 20s where the
ground is bare, to the upper teens around 20 where the snow is still
several inches deep.

Short term Saturday and Saturday night
As of 255 am Friday...

continued moderation as the arctic high and residual cold air mass
gets lifted out by increasing SW flow and continued melting snow.

Sunny skies Saturday will allow warming into the mid 50s to near 60.

The snow melt regions should continue to struggle with highs in the
lower 50s.

Clear and chilly Saturday night, but not as cold with more
moderation. Lows 25-30 north-central piedmont ranging into the mid
30s south.

Long term Sunday through Thursday
As of 255 am edt Friday...

much milder to warm weather expected by Sunday and Monday. Some
lingering snow will continue to keep some highs down over the
northern piedmont, otherwise highs should reach the lower to mid 60s
Sunday. Even warmer Monday with most snow gone by then - when highs
should get into the 60s in all areas.

The next chance of showers will be Monday night into Tuesday as the
main jet shifts to the plains to the great lakes, heralding warm
weather for the SE states including nc.

Subtle cooling is expected Wednesday and Thursday behind the front;
however, the pacific dominated air mass will bring lows in the 30s
and highs in the 50s. Even warmer weather is expected late week.

Aviation 12z Friday through Tuesday
As of 630 am Friday...

24 hour TAF period:VFR conditions through the TAF period.

Long term:VFR conditions through much of the long term with the
next system not expected to affect the area until Monday night into
Tuesday.

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.
