Strong low pressure will linger off the coast through tonight
then move northeast away from the area Tuesday. High pressure
will build over the region Tuesday night through Thursday.

Another strong storm system will affect the area late in the
week into the weekend.

Near term through today
As of 215 am Sunday... Strong low pressure is drifting slowly
ene of CAPE hatteras. The main low will cont to lift ene away
from the area today, though a piece will linger back closer to
the coast as expect additional cyclogenesis to occur ahead of
approaching upr trf. This will keep strong winds and mainly
light precip over the region much of the day.

Will cont likely to cat pops thru the morn with mix of mainly
light rain and drizzle. May see a little heavier band cross
after 12z per latest mdls. Ptype quite tricky as low lvls cool a
bit thru the morn and soundings inland look favorable for some
snow or sleet to mix in. Since sfc temps expected to remain
above freezing and precip will be mainly light not expecting any
impacts if do see some snow sleet. Later today precip will grad
diminish and shift E and again some snow sleet could mix in
closer to cst late twrd evening. Clouds... Precip and nne flow
will keep temps cold with highs in the 30s inland to 40s
beaches.

Tight press grdnt will persist over the region keeping nne
winds strong espcly obx. Will keep high wind warning for obx
dare where still seeing some gusts AOA 50 mph. Wind advry will
cont for obx hyde and carteret as well. Later this morn and
into the aftn winds shld grad diminish enuf to lower wind
headlines.

Short term tonight
As of 215 am mon... As upper trof finally reaches coast expect
secondary sfc low to grad push E with winds slowly diminishing
and precip tapering off or ending from W to e. Cooler and drier
air on backside of low will likely lead to precip shield ending
as light snow or a rain snow mix mainly inland... Again given
light precip and marginal temps not expecting impacts. Lows will
range from around 30 deep inland to 35 to 40 beaches. N winds
will remain gusty coast but shld remain below any advisory lvls.

Long term Tuesday through Sunday
As of 2 am mon...

Tuesday through Thursday... Precipitation will end along coastal
areas Tuesday morning as the offshore low moves away. High
pressure will build in from the north and northeast through
midweek with below normal temperatures and dry conditions
expected. Highs will mostly be in the 40s Tuesday, mid upper 40s
Wednesday, but will warm well into the 50s for Thursday ahead
of the approaching storm system. Lows will be in the upper 20s
to lower 30s west, to upper 30s to lower 40s south coast and
outer banks.

Thursday night through Sunday... Another strong and dynamic storm
system will impact eastern nc starting early Friday into next
weekend. Ahead of the storm, temperatures will warm nicely with
lower mid 60s for highs Friday and Saturday as this will be
more of a pacific-originated system. Concerns early on with this
system will be the threat for very heavy rainfall as early
gfs ECMWF qpf already shows 2-4 inches, along with strong gusty
winds. Some convective potential exists Friday, and have
included chance of thunder across the area. Showers will linger
into Saturday and Saturday night in wraparound moisture in the
wake of the departing low to the northeast. Dry weather returns
Sunday as high pressure builds in from the west. Cooler highs
forecast Saturday and Sunday, mainly in the mid to upper 50s,
with lows in the upper 40s Sat morning and upper 30s to lower
40s Sunday morning, with upper 40s outer banks.

Aviation 06z Monday through Friday
Short term through tonight
as of 1220 am mon... Expect mainly ifr thru Mon morn with
widespread low clouds and light rain or drizzle. May see some
lower vsbys at times espcly inland late tonight and early mon
when some snow poss mixes with rain. Deeper moisture will begin
to grad shift E later today into the evening with precip ending
and CIGS slowly rising to MVFR and may reachVFR deep inland
this evening and closer to coast late Mon night.

Long term Tue through Friday ...

as of 2 am mon...VFR Tue through Thu as high pressure passes
through the area. Sub-vfr in numerous showers and scattered
thunderstorms Friday. Northwest winds 10-15 knots tue, and

Marine
Short term through tonight ...

as of 215 am mon... Strong N to NE winds cont with low pressure
drifting E of CAPE hat. As upper trof approach today and
tonight secondary low will develop offshore keeping winds
gusty. Will keep storm warning a few more hrs central and nrn
coastal wtrs where gusts AOA 45 kts occurring. Have gales for
rest of wtrs except western rivers where have sca. The tight
pres grdnt will keep strong winds going into tonight with gales
cont coastal wtrs thru the evening and SCA most of the remaining
wtrs. Massive 20 foot seas currently observed off NRN obx with
seas 7 to 11 feet SRN tier. With the nne winds remaining gusty
expect large waves to cont thru the period with seas remaining
aoa 10 feet outer wtrs thru tonight.

Long term Tue through Fri ...

as of 2 am mon... Gusty northerly winds and rough seas will
continue into Tuesday, driving seas as high as 7-11 feet as
surface low slowly moves along the coast and pulls away during
Tuesday. Winds and seas finally subside to below SCA during
Wednesday afternoon evening as high pressure settles over the
waters, leading to a relatively benign Thursday with E SE winds
at 5-15 knots. As another strong and dynamic storm system
approaches from the west by early Friday, with winds southeast
to south increasing to 20-30 knots and seas building to 5-8 in
the northern waters, 8-12 feet central waters and 7-11 feet
southern waters.

Tides coastal flooding
As of 215 am mon... The prolonged period of strong nne winds will
cont to produce coastal flooding, rough surf and beach erosion.

Minor to moderate coastal flooding, with water level rises 1-4
ft above ground (2-5 ft above normal) expected. This will
produce coastal flood warning type water level rises for ocean
side dare north of hatteras, and downeast carteret through
craven pamlico counties. Coastal flood advisories continue for
soundside hatteras isl and ocracoke. The highest water lvls and
best chc for ocean overwash will occur on oceanside of outer
banks dare (mainly north of CAPE hatteras) during the next high
tide around 9 am. A secondary low will develop offshore of the
carolinas later today into tonight, and may keep gale force
winds and minor coastal flooding issues in play into Tuesday.

Thereafter, conditions should improve into mid week.

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.
