Synopsis
High pressure will hold over the region through the remainder of the
week. A cold front will approach the area from the west early next
week.

Near term through tonight
As of 140 pm Tuesday...

a 1030mb surface high pressure centered over the mid-atlantic states
will result in a picturesque autumn day across central nc today.

Aside from some patchy thin jet streak cirrus across eastern nc,
expect abundant sunshine with a steady northerly breeze of
6 to 10 kts, that will occasionally gust into the lower teens.

Highs today will range from near 62 across the northern piedmont
near the va border to 67 across the southern piedmont and sandhills.

Clear skies and decoupling winds will result in ideal radiational
cooling conditions. Lows tonight will generally range in the upper
30s to lower 40s. A few of the typically colder locations to the
west of u.S. Route 1 could have lows in the 35 to 38 range which may
result in some patchy short-lived frost. Will include a mention of
frost in the hwo but not issue an advisory due to the isolated
nature of the frost and low confidence.

Short term Wednesday through Wednesday night
As of 140 pm Tuesday...

basically a temperature forecast with gradual airmass moderation as
center of surface high shifts east from the lee of the
central southern appalachians Wednesday morning to off the mid-
atlantic coast Wednesday afternoon evening. Highs Wednesday a good 5
degrees warmer than Tuesday, ranging from upper 60s to lower 70s.

A low-amplitude shortwave trough approaching the area late Wednesday
night may produce some patchy thin cirrus, but otherwise prove to be
inconsequential. Lows 40 to 48.

Long term Thursday through Tuesday
As of 255 pm Tuesday...

high pressure will dominate through the weekend, with a very gradual
warming trend through the period. Highs will be mostly in the mid to
upper 70s, with perhaps some lower 80s Saturday and Sunday. Mins
will be mostly in the mid 40s Friday morning warming to the upper
40s to lower 50s by Sunday morning.

The high pressure will shift offshore and we have a favorable return
flow setting up ahead of our next frontal passage. Timing will be a
key player early next week, as an upper trof moving east across the
southern midwest will cut off over the gulf states, assisting in
providing strong moisture advection ahead of associated surface cold
front. The chance of showers will increase by later Monday, with
even better chances on tap for Monday night into Tuesday. Slightly
delayed timing would be beneficial, as it would allow us to build up
stronger instability to invigorate convection ahead of the front on
Tuesday. Highs Monday will reach the mid and upper 70s, while
Tuesday's highs will be dependent on frontal passage... Probably see
70s again, but could see cold air advection halt the morning warmup
early in the northeast.

Aviation 00z Wednesday through Sunday
As of 735 pm Tuesday...

high confidence ofVFR conditions persisting through the next 24
hours and beyond, as deep high pressure sitting over the region
brings dry air and a lack of clouds. Winds will remain very light
from the NE and E at speeds under 5 kts.

Looking beyond 00z thu, deep high pressure will hold over the area
for several more days.VFR conditions will persist through Sunday,
although fay rwi may see areas of sub-vfr fog for a few hours early
thu morning. -gih

Rah watches warnings advisories
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.
