along the immediate coast. Leaned towards the colder guidance

highway 17, but should stay up east with good caa. Light breeze
should limit any frost potential for those coastal counties that

Short term Monday
As of 210 pm sun... High pressure will continue to build in from

values will drop to 25-30 percent inland Mon afternoon.

Long term Monday night through Sunday
As of 210 pm sun... High pressure shifts off the coast late

for those coastal counties that have not yet ended the growing
season Monday night Tue morning (mainland hyde, pamlico and
carteret)... With temps dropping into the mid to upper 30s. Warmer
southerly flow on Tuesday will lead to milder temps, with highs
in the lower to upper 60s.

Wednesday thru Friday... A cold front will move off the coast
Wednesday morning and stall over the offshore waters of the
southeast states. A few waves of low pressure will move
northeast along the front during this time. The best chance for
rain during this time will be mainly east of highway 17 with
pops no higher than 40-50%
high temps will be in the lower to mid 60s Wednesday, and then
the lower to mid 50s Thursday and 55-60 Friday. Low temps wed
will range from the upper 40s inland to the mid to upper 50s
along the south coast and outer banks. Lows Thursday will be
around 40 on the coastal plain to 45-50 south coast and obx.

Lows Friday morning will be in the mid to upper 30s coastal
plain to mid upper 40s south coast and obx.

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.
