Synopsis
A cold front will pass through the area today. High pressure
will control the weather across the region Wednesday through
Friday. An area of low pressure will affect the area on
Saturday, followed by another one on Monday.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
As of 240 am tue... The cold front will pass through eastern nc
from the west this afternoon and will be off the coast by this
evening. Lift and convergence along ahead of the front is weak
and have kept pops capped at 30%. Any shower activity will end
quickly from west to east this afternoon as the front approaches
and then moves off the coast. Highs will range in the lower to
mid 60s.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 am Wednesday
As of 240 am tue... Forecast soundings and time sections show a
very dry airmass across the region tonight under mostly clear
skies with a light northwest wind. Fog is not forecast. Lows
will range in the mid upper 30s inland to lower mid 40s outer
banks.

Long term Wednesday through Monday
As of 3 am Tuesday... Mostly quiet weather is expected through
Friday as surface high pressure prevails across the area. The
models continue to signal more amplification in the upper flow
beginning this weekend and continuing into next week as a mean
trough is carved out over the northeast. The models spawn a
couple of surface lows, one Friday night into Saturday and
another one Monday but differ on their tracks.

Wednesday through Friday... High pressure will build over the
area from the north through the period producing cool dry
weather across eastern nc mid through late week. Highs Wednesday
will be in the 50s. A reinforcing dry cold front will move
through Wednesday night into early Thursday and 850mb temps
drop below zero across the northern half of the area.

Thanksgiving day looks like the coldest day with highs only in
the mid 40s to around 50, coolest across the northern half of
the forecast area, combined with a brisk nne wind. A hard freeze
inland will be possible Thursday night-early Fri morning. Lows
are progged to be in the mid to upper 20s inland and low to mid
30s coast. Highs Friday warm back into the low to mid 50s. Could
see a few coastal showers late in the day Friday as the flow
becomes easterly and moisture increases along the SE coast ahead
of an approaching coastal warm front.

Friday night through Sunday... A developing surface low is
forecast to impact the area Friday night into Saturday but the
track remains uncertain with some models keeping the low
offshore while others are just inland of the nc coast. Still
looking like a period of heavy rain and strong winds for the
area, with any severe threat dependent on the track of the
system (an inland track would be more favorable for severe
weather). Weak high pressure briefly builds into the area from
the southwest Sunday with dry weather expected. Temps will be
mild this period with highs in the 60s and lows in the mid upper
40s inland to low mid 50s coast.

Monday... Another low pressure system is forecast to impact the
area Monday but there remains significant model differences with
the timing, track and intensity of this system and continue to
keep pops in the low chance range. Mild conditions expected to
persist with the region in the warm sector ahead of the front
with highs in the 60s.

Aviation 08z Tuesday through Saturday
Short term through tonight ...

as of 240 am tue... Conditions have been slowly improving at the
4 area terminals over the past few hours. It's now a mixed bag
ranging from lifr to MVFR.VFR conditions will develop quickly
after sunrise, as a light southwest flow develops ahead of an
approaching cold front. MVFR possible in scattered light showers
along ahead of the front through early afternoon before the
front moves off the coast. Winds will become light northwest and
skies will become clear throughout the region by late
afternoon early evening as a dry airmass builds in.

Long term Wednesday through Saturday ...

as of 315 am Tuesday...VFR conditions are expected into Friday
with high pressure over the area. Sub-vfr conditions are
expected Friday night into Saturday as a developing low moves
across the area.

Marine
Short term through tonight
as of 240 am tue... A cold front will pass through the marine
zones from the west today. The flow will be westerly today,
averaging 10-15 knots north of CAPE hatteras and 15-20 knots
south, with 10-15 knots on the sounds and rivers. Winds tonight
will be northwest to north, averaging 15-20 knots on the coastal
waters and 10-15 knots on the sounds and rivers. Seas today and
tonight will average 2-4 knots north of ocracoke and 3-5 feet
south.

Long term Wednesday through Saturday ...

as of 315 am Tuesday... High pressure ridges into the region
Wednesday with NW to W winds around 5-15 kt and seas around 2-4
ft. A dry cold front will move through the waters Wed night and
early Thursday with strong high pressure building in from the
north behind the front. North winds around 15-25 kt with higher
gusts expected Thursday with winds veering to northeast around
10-20 kt Friday, strongest south of CAPE hatteras. Seas expected
to build Thursday and Thursday night to 5-8 ft northern and
central waters and 3-6 ft southern waters, then gradually
diminish to 3-5 ft by late Friday across all waters. This will
be short-lived however as a strong low pressure system is
expected to impact the area Saturday. There remains significant
uncertainty in the track and strength of the low at this time
but could see strong small craft to low end gale force
conditions ahead of the low Saturday and seas building to around
6-10 ft.

Nc... None.

Marine... None.

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.
