Synopsis
High pressure at the surface and aloft will build across the
southeast states through early next week.

Near term until 6 am Wednesday morning
As of 930 pm tue... East to northeast flow prevails as the
backdoor cold front has moved well south and west of the area
and high pressure is building in from the north. A deck of low
stratus has developed from the crystal coast through
jacksonville and into duplin county on the north side of the
front. This cloud deck will slowly slide south through the
overnight hours, with clear skies prevailing otherwise. Modest
cold air advection brings cooler, drier conditions with temps
dropping back to near climo: 55-60 interior to lower 60s near
the coast.

Short term 6 am Wednesday morning through 6 pm Wednesday
As of 330 pm tue... Pleasant day on tap with temps near climo,
the last such day before heat wave builds into E nc once again
for late week through early next week. Highs tomorrow will be
very near climo, with pleasantly drier air mass in place under
mostly sunny skies as high pres builds in. Temps in the low 80s
for most interior areas, with 70-75 for the obx zones.

Long term Wednesday night through Tuesday
As of 345 am tue... A return to a highly amplified upper pattern
is expected across the CONUS for the remainder of the period
resulting in a strong upper ridge over the southeast states into
early next week. This pattern favors well above average
temperatures, possibly reaching record levels. Complicating the
temperature forecast is a wavy frontal boundary forecast over
the mid atlantic region which will likely oscillate north south
and could drift into portions of eastern nc Friday into sat
producing slightly cooler temperatures especially along the
coast due to onshore. Inland locations should remain with above
normal warmth. Still looks like a predominately dry forecast
through the period. The aforementioned wavy frontal boundary
could also result in some isolated to widely scattered
convective activity at times but current models indicate no
significant organized precipitation events over the next 7 days.

Thursday through Monday... A strengthening upper level ridge
will move out of the gulf of mexico and park itself over the
deep south Thursday into early next week. Surface high pressure
will again set up over the western atlantic, producing a deep
sw flow to the region. Early signs are showing that this
combination could bring close to record heat to the southeast
us. However, the latest model runs continue to show the ridge a
bit further west, placing eastern nc on the peripheral of the
heat, and vulnerable to wavy front from the north drifting south
into portions of the area though it still looks the potential
for very hot conditions still exists and will forecast inland
highs in the 90s through the period and mid to upper 80s closer
to the coast. Continued to trend towards previous forecast, wpc
and the ECMWF which keeps the ridge in place. Right now the
hottest days look like Sunday and Monday. ECMWF shows 850mb
temps 20c+ over most of eastern nc Sunday through the middle of
next week. Record high temps will be possible. Please see climate
section below for details.

Aviation 02z Wednesday through Sunday
Short term through Wed evening ...

as of 9 pm tue... An MVFR stratus deck has developed on the
north side of the cold front across portions of SE nc. MVFR
conditions will remain possible for the next several hours at
koaj, with the stratus deck expected to slide south of the area
overnight. Otherwise,VFR conditions prevail through the period
in mainly light east to northeast winds and mainly skc.

Long term Wednesday night through Sunday ...

as of 345 am tue... PredVFR conditions expected through the
period, though cannot rule out patchy shallow fog and or stratus
early each morning at the terminals.

Marine
Short term through Wed ...

as of 330 pm tue... Winds have turned NE behind cold front, as
the front is now moving through the crystal coast area. NE winds
will continue 10-15 with some gusts to 20 kt through tonight
with seas 2-4 ft. This will be repeated through the day wed,
with continued NE winds 10-15 kt.

Long term Wednesday night through Saturday ...

as of 345 am tue... High pressure will be the dominant feature
through the period. S SW winds 5-15 kt return on thu. Guidance
continues to show a front pushing through the waters Friday with
sw winds 15-20 kt briefly becoming NW N 10-15 kt over the
northern and central waters in the afternoon, and NE all waters
fri night. E NE flow 5-15 kt will continue across the waters
Saturday. Seas generally 2 to 4 ft through the period. Seas may
build up to 5 ft across the outer waters Thu night into Fri in
period of moderate SW flow.

Climate
Record or near record warmth is expected late this week into
early next week.

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.
