Synopsis
High pressure will continue off the coast tonight. A cold front
will push south into the region Monday, then quickly retreat
north Tuesday, with very hot temperatures expected across the
area through at least the middle of the week. A cold front is
expected to move into the area Friday.

Near term through tonight
As of 220 pm Sunday... Sea brz is slowly pushing inland and may
see isold convection develop inland from coast thru early
evening given strong instab, but overall lack of moisture and
forcing will keep majority of region rain free. If any
convection does form could develop quickly given the high cape
values over region, but will rapidly diminish this evening and
expect dry conditions overnight with mdls showing more organized
convection well to the n. Will be another mild night with most
locations dropping to 70 to 75.

Short term Monday
As of 220 pm Sunday... Backdoor cold front will push S thru most
of the region mon. Once again overall lack of forcing and
moisture aloft shld keep convection limited. Did cont isold
mention N and just inland from SRN cst for enhanced convergence
on front sea breeze. Will have decent temp gradient Mon with
nrn coast reaching 80 to 85 with developing onshore flow, sw
tier shld see some upr 90s. Dewpts progged to drop in aftn
inland keeping apparent temps mainly AOB 100.

Long term Monday night through Saturday
As of 200 pm Sunday... Upper ridging over the southeast coupled
with surface high pressure offshore will bring hot and mainly
dry conditions through much of the work week. The ridge breaks
down late in the week with a frontal system approaching from the
bringing increasing chances of showers and thunderstorms Friday
through Saturday.

Monday night through Thursday... Upper ridging will be centered
over the deep south with surface high pressure centered
offshore. Models continue to show a series of weak
impulses remnant convective complexes moving through the NW flow
aloft Monday night into Tuesday with a backdoor front pushing
to SRN tier Mon evening which dissipates early Tuesday. The
weak mid level energy combined with convergence along the front
and sea breeze boundaries may be sufficient to trigger isolated
thunderstorms across parts of the area with somewhat better
chances across the northern tier. The upper ridge axis shifts
eastward late Tuesday into Thursday with dry and hot conditions
prevailing.

The main story this week will be the hot temps with 850mb temps
around 17-20c, possibly peaking as high as 23c Wednesday as
fcst in the 00z ecmwf. The front dissipates by Tuesday with
highs expected in the mid to upper 90 inland to mid to upper 80s
beaches. The heat peaks Wed with highs around 100 inland to low
to mid 90s beaches, then the upper ridge begins to slide
offshore Thursday with high in the upper 90s inland to mid upper
80s along the beaches.

Friday and Saturday... The upper ridge slides offshore late in
the week with near zonal flow developing across the eastern
conus. A dampening shortwave trough and surface frontal boundary
approach from the west bringing increased chances of showers and
thunderstorms across eastern nc. There are some significant
model differences on timing and amount of precip, so will keep
pops to slight chance or low chance. Temps will not be quite as
hot as earlier in the week but still well above average with
highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s inland and mid 80s along the
coast.

Aviation 18z Sunday through Friday
Short term through Monday ...

as of 1230 pm Sunday...VFR expected to dominate thru pd. An
isold shra tsra poss on sea breeze over ERN tier this aftn but
cvrg too limited to mention in tafs. Overnight decent
temp dewpt spread shld preclude any fog and guidance shows no
stratus developing. On Mon backdoor front will sag S thru most
of the region however lack of forcing and moisture shld limit
convection to isold cvrg if any.

Long term Monday night through Fri ...

as of 200 pm Sunday... Upper ridging will keep generally dry and
hot conditions across the area this week with predVFR
conditions expected. Cannot rule out a widely scattered shower
Tuesday as weak impulses ride over the ridge but coverage
expected to be minimal. Early morning fog chances also look
minimal but cannot completely rule out patchy late night early
morning fog or stratus.

Marine
Short term tonight and Mon ...

as of 220 pm Sunday... Weak cold front will approach from the n
tonight then push S thru most of the region mon. Ahead of the
front tonight expect ssw winds 10 to 20 kts... Highest all wtrs
this evening then mainly SRN half late. As front pushed S mon
will see winds become nne in its wake at mainly 10 to 15 kts
with some gusts 15 to 20. Over far SRN tier front wl likely
slow and may have hard time pushing S as sea brz develops.

Seas mainly 2 to 4 feet however will see some 5 footers... Mainly
out wtrs off obx.

Long term Monday night through Friday ...

as of 200 pm Sunday... A backdoor front will dissipate Monday
night into Tuesday while high pressure remains centered offshore
through the period. Winds Tuesday veer to S around 10-15 kt by
afternoon, then becoming SW Tuesday night into Wednesday. Sw
winds increase to 15-20 kt late Wednesday through Thursday as
gradients tighten ahead of an approaching cold front. Small
craft conditions will be possible late in the day Thursday and
into Friday, as winds increase to 20-25 kts out of the sw. Seas
subside to 2-4 ft Tuesday and Wednesday. Seas begin to build
back to 3-5 ft Thursday, with some 6 foot seas possible by
Friday.

Record or near record warmth is expected for much of the week.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
