Synopsis
A warm front will move into the area today and linger through
Thursday. The front will shift back south Thursday night, then
back to the north as a warm front this weekend, resulting in a
continued unsettled weather pattern. High pressure will build in
from the northwest early next week.

Near term through today
As of 215 am wed... High pressure influencing the area from the
north will continue to weaken as in-situ damming sets up. A
weak shortwave moves up the coast while a coastal trough warm
front developing offshore pushes onshore. Widespread light to
moderate rain expected today with good isentropic lift and deep
moisture in place. Will continue categorical to likely pops
across the region with best cvrg later this morn into the aftn.

Temp forecast will be tricky with wedge in place across the
inland areas. Highs likely only getting to around 50 deg deep
inland with E NE winds and lower 60s along the central and srn
coast with winds becoming SE s.

Short term tonight
As of 215 am tue... The warm front becomes less defined tonight
with decrease in deep moisture. Cont prev trend of chc pops
overnight. Despite mainly S to SW sfc flow expect some fog to
cont with saturated low lvls. Very little temp drop overnight
with the warm sector over bulk of the region ... Lows mainly upr
40s inland to upper 50s cst and may even rise a bit late.

Long term Thursday through Tuesday
As of 2 am wed... Mostly unsettled weather expected through the
period, as a wavy front will linger across E nc through the
weekend. Dry high pressure finally makes an appearance by late
next weekend through early next week.

Thursday through Friday... Tough forecast this period, as
wavering front will be nearby, and continued broad swrly winds
aloft will mean rain chances each period as rain will be
isentropically lifted. Deep moisture in place along with vort
lobes passing across the area will result in pops in the good
chance to likely categories both days and during the overnight
periods.

Area will be in the warm sector thu, and with low lvl
thicknesses soaring to around 1390m, highs expected to be in the
70s most areas, though cloud cover and areas of rain,
especially north, may keep temps in the 60s here. High temps
Friday appear to drop into the 50s as wavering front looks to
drop back south as a cold front. More unsettled weather in the
form of rain Friday, as 850mb front remains across the area,
leading to some decent isentropic lift continuing.

Saturday... Unsettled weather continues for Saturday, as the
next low pressure area shortwave will swing through the ohio
valley and bring lift moisture through the region once again.

Temps warm into the 60s as warm front will be lifting through.

Sunday... Finally some drying on Sunday as area will be in warm
sector ahead of approaching cold front. Only chc rain showers at
this time, as best lift moisture will be north and west of the
region. It appears to be a very warm day, as thicknesses soar to
aoa 1390m, suggestive of high temps in the 75-80 degree range
(65-70 beaches).

Monday through Tuesday... Dry high pres arrives on Monday, though
flow will be zonal, so expecting temps to remain above climo,
with 60s for highs generally. Tuesday may see the approach of
the next system in a continued active storm track, and have
introduced chc pops.

Aviation 07z Wednesday through Sunday
Short term through tonight ...

as of 1215 am wed... Outside of pgvVFR conts currently. All
guidance shows conditions grad deteriorating thru the morn with
MVFR developing by 12z... Then ifr or worse developing between
12z and 18z with widespread low clouds developing as rain
increases. Once low clouds form just about all guidance keeps
them locked in thru rest of period. Good cvrg of rain thru the
day... Will also see areas of fog as well at times. Rain will
taper off tonight but some fog wl likely conts with low lvls
saturated.

Long term Thu through Sunday ...

outer central and SRN wtrs. Seas of 3 to 4 ft N and 5 to 6 ft s
early will build to 6 to 8 ft by evening and cont in that range
overnight. Cont all current headlines. Will have to watch
pamlico sound as may need to extend duration of SCA if warm
front pushes in a little further.

Long term Thu through Sunday ...

as of 2 am wed... Poor boating conditions forecast through most
of the period in unsettled weather pattern. SCA continues into
thu in messy pattern with a front moving in from the northwest.
