Synopsis
High pressure will extend over the area from the north-northeast
tonight and then slide offshore Friday. The high will remain
offshore through the weekend with the next frontal system
approaching the middle of next week.

Near term /until 6 am Friday morning/
As of 10 pm Thursday... Current forecast in good shape as
temperatures have fallen into the upper 30s to lower 40s. Winds
should continue to gradually diminish overnight with strong
1036 mb high pressure ridging south from the DELMARVA region.

Expect good radiational cooling overnight for all but the
immediate coast. Frost advisory for inland portions of
onslow/carteret counties where lows mainly 33-36 and higher rh
than last night will lead to areas of frost.

Short term /6 am Friday morning through 6 pm Friday/
As of 330 pm Thursday... Spring-like warmth will return as high
pressure moves offshore along with ridging aloft. Winds veering
to SE and S will result in some scattered cu/scu during the day
but good insolation will allow temps to warm to 65-70 inland and
60-65 outer banks.

Long term /Friday night through Thursday/
As of 240 pm thu... Above normal temperatures expected through
the period... With scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms
developing late weekend and early next week.

Friday night through Tuesday... High pressure will remain
anchored off the southeast coast, as frontal boundary slowly
approaches from the west. Warm moist s/sw flow expected across
the region, and low level thickness values support highs 65-70
degrees along the outer banks, and upper 60s to upper 70s
inland. Overnight lows generally in the 50s. Weak shortwave
moves through the carolinas Sunday, and could support an isolated
showers/tstm... Though expect best chances west of the area with
better forcing. Similar set up for Mon with scattered convection
possible. Better precip chances Tue as main front and trough
move into the mid-atlantic and SE us. Will continue 20-40
pops... Highest tue.

Tuesday night through Thursday... Latest guidance shows front
pushing through late Tuesday night and early Wednesday. High
pressure will build in from the north Wed and thu, as another
frontal system approaches late week. Continue slight chance pops
Tuesday night, and dry for Wed and thu. At this time does not
seem like a significant airmass change behind the front, with
above normal temps in the mid 60s to mid 70s wed... And a few
degrees cooler for thu.

Aviation /02z Friday through Tuesday/
Short term /through 00z Saturday/...

as of 635 pm Thursday... High confidence inVFR conditions
overnight and through Saturday. Winds should gradually drop to
below 10 knots by late tonight and early Saturday. While patches
of steam fog cannot be ruled out with winds likely going calm by
morning... Especially at kpgv... Think the impacts would be very
low and will continue to leave out of the TAF at this time.

Clear skies again on Friday... Except for possibly some afternoon
cumulus... As winds will slowly veer around to the southeast.

Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/...

as of 240 pm thu... PredVFR through the period, with periods of
sub-vfr possible Sunday through Tuesday in scattered showers and
isolated tstms.

Marine
Short term /through Friday/...

as of 10 pm Thursday... With seas continue up to 8 feet at
diamond buoy... Have opted to extend the SCA until 10z as ne
swell energy lingers just offshore and down to the central outer
waters.

High center will spread over waters tonight and then shift
offshore Friday, resulting in light veering winds late tonight
and flow becoming s-sw 10-15 kt Friday afternoon. Seas will
subside to 2-3 feet Friday.

Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/...

as of 240 pm thu... High pressure will remain anchored off the
coast through the period, as a slow moving cold front approaches
the waters early next week. S/sw winds generally 5-15 kt
expected into early next week. Seas 2-4 feet Fri night through
Sunday. Models show waves building to 3-5 feet Monday. Could see
some 6 ft seas develop Monday night and Tue south of oregon
inlet in combo of SW winds and increasing swell energy.

Mhx watches/warnings/advisories
Nc... Frost advisory from 3 am to 9 am edt Friday for ncz095-098.

Marine... Small craft advisory until 6 am edt Friday for amz152-154.

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.
