Synopsis
High pressure will build in from the north through the weekend.

A slow moving low pressure system will impact the area Monday
through Wednesday. A cold front is expected to push through the
area region late next week.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
As of 915 am sat... Not much happening across eastern nc this
morning as another beautiful day is expected, thanks to a ridge
of high pressure extending over the area from the great lakes.

After a cold morning temperatures have quickly warmed into the
50s. Below average temperatures are expected again, but it will
be a few degrees warmer than yesterday, as the upper ridge
continues to build in. Highs will reach the upper 60s to around
70 west of us 17, the low to mid 60s closer to the coast, and
only the mid to upper 50s across the outer banks as winds will
blow off the still quite cold ocean.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 am Sunday
As of 2 am sat... High pressure will continue to extend over the
area from the north tonight. Another cool night expected, with
decent radiational set up, but think it will be a few degrees
warmer than previous nights as low level flow becomes more
easterly. Could see some increasing high clouds across the
northern forecast area late. Not expecting any frost concerns at
this time with lows in the upper 30s to low 40s.

Long term Sunday through Friday
As of 345 am sat... High pressure will continue through Monday
morning, then a wet pattern for the rest of the week.

Sunday... High pressure will continue to influence the weather.

Conditions will remain dry and cool. Expect an increase of mid
to high clouds across the area with highs reaching to the upper
50s from the NE sections to upper 60s to the sw.

Monday through Tuesday night... Unsettled conditions are expected for
this period as a significant upper low tracks across the southern
plains ms valley during the first half of next week. High pressure
will continue to influence the weather Monday, delaying most of the
rain until Monday late afternoon as the upper level low and sfc low
lifts towards the carolinas Monday night and Tuesday. Meanwhile the
upper level will become an open wave and slightly negative tilted as
it becomes absorbed with another significant shortwave trough
dropping down from the northern plains. The track of the sfc low
will cross the area Tuesday night and Wednesday, but the latest
models differ with the exact track and timing. This system will have
the potential for widespread rain with amount over 1 inch as the
models show a significant 850mb moisture transport from the atlantic
towards the area Monday night and Tuesday. Plus, there is the
potential for severe weather if the low track farther inland Tuesday
with backed low level SE winds, and a negative tilt trough aloft,
but at this time instability is very limited; will continue to
monitor. Expect highs in the mid to upper 60s inland and low mid 60s
along the beaches.

Wednesday through end of week... Rain will start to taper off
Wednesday as the sfc low lifts NE and drier air filters in. Most
places will have a break from rain Wednesday night into Thursday
until the other aforementioned shortwave and it's associated weak
cold front approaches the area with rain redeveloping again
Thursday. The weak cold front is expected to push through Thursday
night with a secondary cold front Friday or Saturday. Expect a
warming trends to start Wednesday with highs 70s inland and 60s
along the outer banks.

Aviation 13z Saturday through Wednesday
Short term through tonight ...

as of 620 am sat... PredVFR conditions expected through the
period with mostly clear skies. Very brief and patchy shallow
ground fog possible through 12z this morning. Could see some
increasing high clouds late tonight and early Sun morning.

Long term Sunday through Wednesday ...

as of 345 am sat...VFR conditions will continue through Monday
as high pressure influences the weather. Moisture will increase
across the region as a low pressure system tracks towards the
carolinas producing widespread rain Monday night and Tuesday
resulting in MVFR conditions with possible ifr. Conditions will
slowing improve Wednesday as the low lifts north.

Marine
Short term through tonight ...

as of 620 am sat... Latest obs show variable winds NW to E 5-15
kt with seas 2-3 ft. High pressure will continue to extend over
the waters from the north through the period. Flow becomes more
n NE 10-15 kt this morning, then more easterly late today and
tonight. Seas generally 2-3 ft.

Long term Sunday through Wednesday ...

as of 345 am sat... Winds will slowly veer to the ene Sunday as the
sfc high gradually shifts off the mid-atlantic coast. Wind
gradient will tighten Monday as a low pressure system approaches
the region from the gulf states, expect winds to become ene
10-25 knots, then increasing to 20-30 knots Tuesday. As the low
lifts ne, winds will become SW 10-15 knots Wednesday. Seas will
generally be around 2-3 ft through early Monday morning, then
seas will build 4-6 ft throughout Monday. Seas will continue to
build Monday night and Tuesday as the sfc low approaches the
area, expect seas to reach as high 10-13 ft. Seas will gradually
subside Wednesday, but remain above 6 ft.

Mhx watches warnings advisories
Nc... None.

Marine... None.

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.
