Nags Head, NC

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.

Synopsis
An inland trough offshore high pattern will prevail over the
area through Saturday. A cold front will approach from the
northwest Sunday and move through Monday into Monday night.

High pressure will build into the area Tuesday and gradually
move offshore Wednesday.

Near term until 6 am Saturday morning
As of 1010 pm Friday... Showers redeveloping just to the west are
moving northeast and should stay out of the forecast area.

Convective cluster over northern south carolina is forecast by
short-range models to dissipate just west of the forecast area
shortly after midnight. Will maintain dry forecast for now. Sw
flow will keep min temps in mid to upper 70s.

Short term 6 am Saturday morning through 6 pm Saturday
As of 400 pm... Similar conditions will continue on Saturday with
offshore high inland trough pattern. Isolated convective
activity possible in morning with scattered coverage for
afternoon inland of sea breeze. Highs 90-95 inland with 85-90
coast and heat indices 100-105.

Long term Saturday night through Friday
As of 340 am Friday... Hot and humid SW flow is expected to
continue through the weekend. A moderately strong cold front is
then forecast to move into eastern nc Monday, pushing south of
the region Monday night. High pressure will then build into the
area from the north Tuesday and Wed then continue to influence
the weather while moving offshore Thursday into Friday with
temps near normal. Broad troughing aloft will keep the threat
for convection in the forecast over the weekend. The cold front
will bring even better chances for precipitation from Sunday
night into Monday night, then much lower but not non zero
chances for mainly diurnally driven showers and storms are
expected from Tuesday into Thursday as high pressure builds
tends to inhibit widespread organized convection.

Saturday through Monday... Unsettled muggy weather is expected
during this period. Broad upper troughing is expected to
persist over the area over the weekend aiding lift of hot humid
airmass which will be in place across the carolinas leading to
scattered showers and thunderstorms. The cold front will
continue the threat for showers and storms Mon mon night.

Tue through thu... The front is forecast to push south of the
region Tue as high pressure builds over the area from the
north into wed. The high is forecast to move offshore while
continuing to influence the weather thu. As is typical for this
time of year, there will be enough residual moisture and
instability behind the front to warrant low chance pops each day
for a few mainly diurnally driven showers or storms. Temps will
be closer to normal values in the low to mid 80s.

Aviation 02z Saturday through Wednesday
Short term through 18z Saturday ...

as of 7 pm Friday... Warm sector summertimeVFR expected to
prevail all sites through period. SW winds 5-10 kt expected to
preclude fog threat.

Long term Saturday night through Tuesday ...

as of 340 am Friday...VFR conditions are expected through most
of the long term, with the exception of occasional subVFR
conditions possible each day in scattered showers and
thunderstorms with the greatest threat Mon afternoon and
evening.

Marine
Short term through Saturday ...

as of 1010 pm Friday... No change to zones. Tightening pressure
gradient between offshore high and inland trough will keep ssw
winds 10-20 kt over waters tonight, and approaching front will
result in higher gusts Saturday afternoon. Gusty winds will
persist into Sunday night and have posted SCA for outer waters
and pamlico sound.

Seas will build to 3-4 feet tonight and 4-5 ft Saturday.

Long term Saturday night through Tuesday ... As of 340 am
Friday... Sw flow increases to 20-25 kt late Sat and continues
through Sun night ahead of the cold front. Winds Monday shift to
nw-n and diminish to 10 to 15 kt behind the front. Tue winds
are forecast to be NE 10 to 15 kt as high pressure builds over
the waters from the north. Seas build to 3 to 5 ft late sat,
then 4-7 ft Sat night through Sun night. Seas are then forecast
to subside to 3 to 5 ft late Mon morning and 2 to 4 ft tue

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.
