Synopsis
High pressure will ridge into the region through the weekend. A
trough of low pressure will move along the coast Monday. High
pressure will build over the area Tuesday through Friday. Next
storm system may affect the region by next Saturday.

Near term until 6 am Sunday morning
As of 915 pm sat... Cirrus approaching from the SW appears to be
quite thin and likely wont impact cooling much with 30s inland
to 40s beaches. Some scu will be approaching SRN cst late but
bulk of this will hold off til after daybreak. Already seeing
some patchy fog develop so expanded cvrg a bit more overnight.

Short term 6 am Sunday morning through 6 pm Sunday
As of 225 pm sat... Continued quiet and bit milder weather on
tap Sunday as high pressure continues to ridge into the area
from the north. As mentioned above, can't rule out a few showers
immediate coast with the developing offshore trough of low
pressure but not seeing a strong enough signal in the models to
include it in the forecast at this time. Skies will range from
mostly clear inland, to partly to maybe occasionally mostly
cloudy along the coast. Warmer highs in the lower to middle 60s
are expected.

Long term Sunday night through Saturday
As of 245 pm sat... The surface ridge over the southern
appalachians will continue to dissipate, then Sunday night into
Monday a weak coastal trof will develop along and track across
the E nc coast. High pres builds back in late Monday through the
rest of the period, with next low pres system possible by next
weekend.

Sunday night Monday... Tricky forecast this period as there is
still wide model disagreement. Have inc pops quite a bit
however, as ecm and resultant ensemble members do indicate a
high pop low QPF scenario. This makes sense given the high
low mid level rh vals above 75%. Held off advertising likelies
for all but coastal locales, as other model guide like GFS nam
continue to be rather dry.

Monday night through Friday... Dry weather forecast this period
as high pressure ridges into the area. Temps will be mild to
start, with 60s for highs on tue, then a dry cold front moves
through mid week, bringing below climo temps to the east coast.

Temps dip into the 50s for highs on wed, then some upper 40s to
lower 50s for thanksgiving day and Friday. First freeze of the
season may come to parts of E nc on Fri morning as lows fcst to
drop to the lower 30s inland, remaining in the low 40s coast.

Saturday... 17 12z global model suite indicating digging trough
across the southern ms valley, which may spawn sfc cyclogenesis
across the southeastern states and our next precipitation
chance.

Aviation 02z Sunday through Thursday
Short term through Sunday ...

as of 915 pm sat... Some patchy fog will cont to develop
overnight with subVFR vsbys poss at times... Pgv likely best chc
to see longer duration of ifr. Fog that does form will lift
quickly Sunday morning. Increasing low mid lvl moisture will
lead to more clouds Sun espcly closer to coast but cigs
expected to be inVFR range.

Long term Sunday night through Thursday ...

as of 245 pm sat... MostlyVFR dry conditions are expected
through the long term. A coastal trof will bring some rain late
sun night and ESP Monday, and may drop to subVFR at times in
lower stratus. Any low clouds move out by late Monday as the
trof scoots offshore.VFR skc Tue through thanksgiving.

Marine
Short term through Sunday ...

as of 915 pm sat... Fcst looks good with NE flow increasing to
around 15 kts overnight SRN half of region.

Prev disc... Two weather systems will affect the marine weather
through Sunday. The strongest system is high pressure to the
north continuing to ridge south into the region as it moves
offshore during Sunday. The second feature is a weak trough of
low pressure that is forecast to take shape overnight and
Sunday. As this system develops, it is forecast to increase the
ne flow tonight and Monday. The models differed on the timing,
location of strongest flow, and the strength and duration of
this flow. Consensus of the models indicated that the location
of strongest winds will be mainly over the southern and central
waters west to the southern and eastern pamlico sound. Most of
the models indicate the strongest sustained winds will be around
15 kt from tonight through early Sunday afternoon with only a
couple of the higher resolution models stronger. Based on this
will keep conditions below advisory levels with mainly 2-4 ft
seas tonight and Sunday with some 5 ft seas expected over the
outer southern and central waters.

Long term Sunday night through Thursday ...

as of 245 pm sat... A coastal trof will affect the waters Sunday
night into Monday, then high pressure builds in from the
northwest for the remainder of the period. Overall flow pattern
through the period will be westerly and then northerly, with the
exception of Sunday night into Mon when winds temporarily
become SW due to the coastal trof. Seas will average 2-4 feet
through wed. Reinforcing dry cold front pushes through by
thanksgiving day, with SCA conditions developing as N winds fcst
to be 20-25 kt with seas 6+ ft.

Mhx watches warnings advisories
Nc... None.

Marine... None.
