Synopsis
A mid to upper level trough will linger over the carolinas through
sat. Otherwise, high pressure centered over the great lakes and
northern middle atlantic states will extend south into our region
through early next week.

Near term through tonight
As of 240 pm Friday...

weak high pressure will persist over the area tonight and the upper
trof will edge nearer the coast. The diurnal cumulus field will
dissipate prior to sunset leaving us with clear skies overnight.

Conditions will be conducive to some patchy fog in the east where
areas from rocky mount to goldsboro received pretty good shower
coverage on Thursday. Mins will be close to persistence from this
morning as clear and calm conditions allow temps to radiate to the
dew points in the low and mid 60s.

Short term Saturday and Saturday night
As of 240 pm Friday...

the upper ridge building to our NW is expected to edge east then
down the atlantic coast Saturday into Saturday night. Will be warm
and dry tomorrow with highs similar to today... 85-90. A modest surge
of reinforcing dry air is expected tomorrow night as the ridging
surges south, with mins falling a couple of degrees, from 60 to 65.

Long term Sunday through Friday
As of 240 pm Friday...

the main weather story for the long term is the subtle westward
shift in the models and official NHC track regarding maria for the
middle of next week. Despite this westward shift, the system is
still forecast to be far enough to our east to preclude any
significant impacts on our weather other than a uptick in cloudiness
across our eastern zones, and an uptick the breeze, from late
Tuesday through early Thursday. Of course that can change if the
westward trend continues. In fact, if the forecast track shifts much
more westward with subsequent runs, then we'll have to do a notable
increase in our pops and wind; but for now, looks like the weather
with maria should stay mostly to our east.

Otherwise, the rest of the long term period is dry with high
pressure influencing our weather before maria approach, then dry
again in the wake of maria as the storm moves northeastward away
from the mid-atlantic coast. Above normal temps continue in the
long term.

Aviation 00z Saturday through Wednesday
As of 715 pm Friday...

high pressure ridging south into nc will result in mainlyVFR
conditions through the TAF period, although patchy fog will be
possible late tonight-early Sat morning, mainly at rwi.

Outlook: there is a chance of sub-vfr conditions mainly at eastern
taf sites early to mid next week, when moist northerly flow on the
west side of tropical cyclone maria will likely overspread ERN nc.

Rah watches warnings advisories
None.

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.
