Synopsis
An early season heat wave will build through the period as high
pressure at the surface and aloft will build across the
southeast states through next week.

Near term through tonight
As of 330 pm wed... Benign weather pattern as high pres ridges
into E nc from the mid atlantic region, with NE winds and
pleasant temperatures in the mid 70s to low 80s, near climo for
the third week of may.

Mostly clr skies and calm wind tonight will lead to good
radiational cooling overnight, with pleasantly cool temps
dropping down into the 55-60 degree range, coolest inland and
warmest on the beaches.

Short term Thursday
As of 330 pm wed... This will be a transition day before the heat
wave builds back into the SE conus. High pres migrates off the
mid atlantic coast, with return S to SW flow bringing a warming
trend. Temps rise back to above climo, with mid upr 80s inland
to low mid 80s on the beaches. Subsidence aloft will suppress
any chance for even an iso shower storm, with just some sct cu
development on the sea breeze boundary.

Long term Thursday night through Wednesday
As of 310 am wed... A highly amplified upper pattern is expected
across the CONUS through early next week featuring a strong
upper ridge over the southeast states. This pattern favors well
above average temperatures, possibly reaching record levels and
below normal precipitation. Complicating the temperature
forecast is a wavy frontal boundary forecast over the mid
atlantic region which will likely oscillate south into portions
of eastern nc Friday into Sat producing slightly cooler
temperatures Sat especially along the coast due to onshore flow.

Inland locations should remain with above normal warmth. Still
looks like a predominately dry forecast through the period.

Differential heating local sea breeze circulations and low
amplitude shortwaves could trigger isolated to widely scattered
convective activity at times but current model runs indicate no
significant organized precipitation events over the next 7 days.

Friday through Tuesday... A strong upper level ridge will move
out of the gulf of mexico and park itself over the deep south
into early next week. Surface high pressure will again set up
over the western atlantic, producing a deep SW flow across the
region. All signs continue to show that this combination could
bring close to record heat to the southeast us. However, the
latest model runs continue to show the ridge a bit further west,
placing eastern nc on the peripheral of the heat, and
vulnerable to weak boundaries drifting across the region from
the north and west resulting in cooler coastal temps if onshore
flow develops. Inland, the potential for very hot conditions
still exists and will forecast inland highs in the 90s through
the period and mid to upper 80s closer to the coast. Continued
to trend towards previous forecast, wpc and the ECMWF which
keeps the ridge in place. Right now the hottest days look like
Friday, and Sunday and Monday. ECMWF shows 850mb temps 20c+ over
most of eastern nc Sunday through the middle of next week.

Record high temps will be possible. Please see climate section
below for details.

Aviation 19z Wednesday through Monday
Short term through Thu ...

as of 2 pm wed...VFR mostly skc through the TAF pd as high pres
will be in control. Light NE winds this afternoon become calm
tonight, then light SW during the day on thu.

Long term Thursday night through Monday ...

as of 310 am wed... PredVFR conditions expected through the
period, though cannot rule out patchy shallow fog and or stratus
early each morning at the terminals.

Marine
Short term through Thursday ...

as of 330 pm wed... Surface ridge centered to the northeast of
the area will make for east to northeast surface flow through
this evening and overnight. The gradient lessens tonight, with
the 10-15 kt becoming 5-10 kt tonight while veering E to ese.

The high moves further east on thu, with winds veering to S and
sw while remaining light in the morning, 5-10 kt, then
increasing in the afternoon to 10-15 kt with gusts to 20 kt.

Seas will average 2-4 ft through the period.

Long term Thursday night through Monday ...

as of 310 am wed... High pressure will be the dominant feature
through the period. S SW winds 5-15 kt Thu increase to 15 to 20
kt and gusty Thu night with a brief period of SCA conditions
possible . Guidance continues to show a front pushing through
the waters Friday with W winds 15-20 kt early diminishing and
becoming N NE around 10 kt over the northern and central waters
in the afternoon, and NE 10 kt all waters Fri night. E NE flow
around 10 kt will become SE Sat afternoon. S SW winds 10-15 kt
are forecast for Sunday. Seas generally 2 to 4 ft through the
period. Seas may build up to 5 ft across the outer waters thu
night into early Fri in period of moderate SW W flow.

Climate
Record or near record warmth is expected late this week into
early next week.

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.
