Synopsis
Strong low pressure will continue to move up the east coast, away
from nc this morning. High pressure will follow and expand across
the region today through the weekend.

Near term through tonight
As of 148 am Friday...

clearing has begun with the drying downslope winds coming off blue
ridge early this morning. The clearing will spread quickly east in the
next few hours. Deep mixing will likely keep the near surface
temperatures above freezing through daybreak.

Today will be a sunny and bright day, albeit chilly. The NW breeze
at 10-15 mph this morning will diminish to around 10 mph this
afternoon, as the pressure gradient slackens. Highs only 50-55 west
and north, with 55-60 SE expected.

High pressure will be over the region tonight. Clear skies, light
winds, and excellent radiational cooling will result. Lows generally
30 to 35, with upper 20s in the the typically colder locations.

Short term Saturday and Saturday night
As of 148 am Friday...

some moderation can be expected on Saturday and Saturday night
as the high pressure lingers but weakens over the region. There may be
some increase in high level moisture in the fast flow aloft by Saturday
night. Otherwise, mostly sunny skies are expected Saturday with warmer
highs of 58-65. Lows Saturday night should be in the lower to mid 40s.

Long term Sunday through Thursday
As of 148 am Friday...

a break in all the rain will continue into the upcoming week. A
weak dry backdoor cold frontal passage will keep the temperatures
"mild" Sunday and Monday, with lows in the 40s and highs in the lower
to mid 60s (warmest on Monday).

Another mid upper trough is expected to develop in the northeastern
united states mid week. This will allow a colder trend to arrive into
our region per a 1035 mb surface high with strong CAA later Tuesday
into Wednesday. Highs should hold in the upper 40s to mid 50s by
Wednesday and Thursday, with lows in the upper 20s to mid 30s.

Aviation 06z Friday through Tuesday
As of 1243 am Friday...

a return toVFR conditions will occur between 06z and 09z for most
areas, with a westerly wind at 10 kt.VFR conditions expected today
and tonight.

Outlook:VFR and dry conditions will dominate through early
next week.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
