Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

A cold front will move through the area late tonight followed
by high pressure building in from the north Thursday. The high
will move offshore Friday with a bermuda high pattern returning
for the weekend.

Near term tonight
As of 630 pm wed... No significant changes needed to previous
forecast for update. Latest radar imagery shows showers and
storms diminishing across the southern tier, but still going
strong across the northern tier, north of hwy 64 and the
albemarle sound region. Expect convection to gradually spread
southward in the next few hours. Given the good instab and
modest deep lyr shear with NW flow aloft could see a cpl strong
to severe storms this evening with gusty winds and hail.

Convection will likely become most numerous along ahead of front
this evening cntral and N with activity grad pushing S with
front. Late tonight only SRN tier wil likely have threat of a
some shra's or storms. Lows mainly 65 to 70.

Short term Thursday
As of 300 pm Wednesday... Lingering shra and poss a storm over
srn tier will likely shift S with most areas dry mid to late
morn on. N to NE flow behind front will keep temps a bit cooler
with 80 to 85 most spots.

Long term Thursday night through Wednesday
As of 345 am Wednesday... A cold front will provide a brief
respite from the humidity Thursday into the early portion of the
weekend, before deep moisture returns with numerous showers and
thunderstorms for early next week.

Thursday night through Sunday... A pleasant night expected
Thursday night with lows into the 60s area-wide. Friday should
be a generally sunny day with highs in the lower 80s and
dewpoints in the 60s. Winds veer to SE S on Saturday but forcing
for precipitation remains weak. Will have just a few showers or
storms inland on the seabreeze for Saturday, with highs warming
to the mid 80s. Moisture will continue to increase on Sunday
with gusty southerly winds and highs into the mid 80s. Upper
forcing remains weak however, and will continue with just low
chance pops at this time.

Monday and Tuesday... Deepening moisture associated with an upper
low closing off along the gulf coast will lead to higher chances
of showers and thunderstorms for early next week. Precipitable
water values will surge to over 2 inches with increasingly gusty
se S winds. Will forecast high chance pops at this time with
high temperatures generally upper 70s to lower 80s with
increased cloud cover.

Aviation 22z Wednesday through Monday
Short term through Thursday ...

as of 630 pm wed...VFR conditions currently across the area
early this evening. Shld see mainlyVFR for the next several
hours, however sct to numerous shra and tstms continue to develop
which could result in a few periods of subVFR. Some of these
storms could be strong to severe with damaging wind gusts and
large hail possible. Shra and tsra shld grad end thru the
evening from N to S as front crosses withVFR returning and cont
thru the day Thu as clouds diminish. Moderate confidence that a
period of MVFR to possibly ifr ceilings could develop early thu
morning, mainly at iso ewn oaj. Low level SW winds become ne
late tonight and thu.

Long term Thursday night through Monday ...

as of 355 am Wednesday... A rather quiet period aviation-wise
expected for Thursday night through Sunday. Lower dewpoints and
light winds will lead to good flying conditions, mostlyVFR thru

will be short-lived.

gulf of mexico, SE S winds will start to increase Sunday with s
winds gusting to 20 knots possible by Sunday afternoon. Per
