Synopsis
Arctic high pressure will build in from the northwest through
Tuesday. Another cold front will approach from the west
Wednesday into Thursday, then move offshore Thursday night. High
pressure builds over the region from the west by late week into
the weekend.

Near term rest of today
As of 1015 am Monday... Small adjustments for the near term
forecast mainly to capture trends in hourly temps and dew points.

High pressure will continue to expand south from the upper great
lakes today with a cold and dry airmass in place across eastern
nc and continued gusty NW winds. Winds should subside by evening
per the latest high-resolution guidance. With strong caa
continuing, temperatures are not likely to rise much today,
despite sunshine, with highs remaining in the lower 30s, with a
few spots over the far northwestern zones (martin) struggling to
reach 30 degrees. Wind gusts to 20-30 mph will be possible
through late afternoon across the outer banks. Wind chills
remain in the teens this morning, and will remain in the teens
to lower 20s today.

Short term tonight
As of 340 am Monday... Winds should gradually subside, but it is
questionable if it completely decouples and GOES calm over
inland counties tonight. Coastal areas should keep 3-7 knots of
wind overnight. Despite this, low temperatures are still likely
to drop to the lowest levels so far this winter season, with
readings in the 16-20 degree range inland with mid 20s outer
banks.

Long term Tuesday through Sunday
As of 220 am mon... High pressure will remain over the region
Tuesday before a slow moving cold front affects the area
Wednesday and Thursday, with a return to warmer and wetter
conditions. Then, drier and colder air return for Friday and the
weekend. A coastal storm may impact eastern nc Sunday night and
into early next week.

Tuesday... Heights will build on Tuesday, as the upper trough
pushes away from the region. However, well below average highs
are again expected, with temps only reaching the upper 30s to
low 40s.

Wednesday and Thursday... Warm southerly flow will develop
Wednesday as high pressure moves offshore and a large storm
system approaches from the west. Most of Wednesday should remain
dry, with only some scattered showers possible along the coast,
and later in the afternoon along the coastal plain. Temps will
climb drastically from lows Wednesday morning around freezing to
the low to mid 60s by Wednesday afternoon. Rainfall associated
with the slow moving cold front will move into the region
Wednesday night, and have pops ramping up from chance to likely.

Have categorical pops for the period of heaviest rain Thursday
morning, and as the front pushes offshore later in the day have
showers tapering off from west to east. Highs on Thursday are
again expected to be in the low to mid 60s.

Friday and Saturday... Behind this storm system a deep longwave
trough will anchor itself over the most of the CONUS centered
over the midwest and deep south. A secondary arctic cold front
will move into the region late Friday, bringing another blast
of frigid weather for the weekend. High temps on Friday will
reach the mid to upper 40s, and then expect highs only in the
low to mid 40s on Saturday. Lows will range from the low to mid
20s inland to the mid 30s along the coast.

Sunday... Though there are still considerable differences in
forecast guidance, it's appearing more probable that a coastal
storm will develop and strengthen along or off the east coast
Sunday night and into Monday. Will introduce chance pops across
the area for the day Sunday. Have high temps ranging from the
mid 40s to low 50s, but this is subject to change depending on
the placement and strength of the low pressure system.

Aviation 15z Monday through Friday
Short term through 12z Tuesday ...

as of 655 am Monday...VFR conditions are expected to prevail
through the TAF cycle. Gusty NW winds of 20-25 knots will
continue before subsiding later this evening. These gusty nw
could result in some crosswind impacts for runways at ewn and
oaj.

Long term Tuesday through Friday ...

as of 240 am mon... .Vfr conditions are expected Tuesday and most
of Wednesday, before a cold front brings sub-vfr ceilings and
rain showers Wednesday night and Thursday.VFR conditions are
expected to return by Thursday evening and last through Friday.

Marine
Short term today and tonight ...

as of 1020 am Monday... Latest surface and buoy data indicate nw
winds mostly 15-25 kt across the waters, with gusts to gale
force implied for the outer portions of the central and
northern waters. We remain without diamond shoals buoy since it
lost mooring in december, with offshore buoys 44014 and 41064
gusting 33 and 31 kts, respectively. Lowers the gale warning for
the southern waters to small craft advisories and continued the
gales for the central and northern waters. Seas remain elevated
at 6-10 ft in wind-wave dominant conditions.

High pressure will continue to build over the waters from the
northwest today. Gusty NW nnw winds will continue throughout
the afternoon before subsiding this evening. Seas will remain
elevated north of ocracoke overnight and into Tuesday morning
per latest local nwps swan model.

Long term Tuesday through Friday ...

as of 240 am mon... Small craft conditions are likely to linger
through Tuesday morning, with some 6 ft seas still present
across the coastal waters.

Expect winds Tuesday morning to be N 15-20 kts, before
weakening to 10-15 kts by late afternoon. Winds will turn to the
se early Wednesday morning ahead of the next storm system, and
will strengthen to S 20-25 kts by late afternoon. Gale force
conditions are likely as winds peak Thursday morning at ssw
25-35 kts. Behind the cold front Thursday evening, winds turn to
the W at 15-25 kts. Then, winds Friday become NW 15-20 kts.

Seas Tuesday will become 3-5 ft by the afternoon. Seas will
build Wednesday afternoon to 4-7 ft, and then by Thursday
morning waves are expected to peak around 9-15 ft. Seas slowly
subside Thursday night, and become 4-6 ft on Friday.

Tides coastal flooding
As of 10 am mon... Persistent strong northwest winds will
continue today, resulting in elevated water levels along the
sound side of hatteras and ocracoke islands. Inundation is
generally expected to be a foot or less for very low lying
areas.

Mhx watches warnings advisories
Nc... None.

Marine... Small craft advisory until 7 am est Tuesday for amz130-131-135.

Gale warning until 8 pm est this evening for amz150-152-154.

Small craft advisory until 4 am est Tuesday for amz156-158.
