SYNOPSIS. Cooler weather continues tomorrow ahead of our next chance for a cool, soaking rain on Wednesday. Milder and drier weather develops on Thursday before a dry cold front brings another shot of cool air on Friday. Still watching the potential for a cool and unsettled weekend.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/. As cold front pushes further offshore during the early afternoon, latest high resolution model guidance shows some post frontal light precipitation as upper level disturbance continues to move through the region. Any additional rain amounts will be light and less than a tenth of an inch. A quick moving high pressure system will move into the area tonight through Tuesday evening with much colder temperatures. Lows tonight will fall into the 40s, which is right around normal for early March. Highs Tuesday will be cooler than the past several days in the low to mid 50s, which is on the order of 5 degrees below normal and around 20 degrees cooler than high temperatures today. Another cool night for overnight Tuesday with lows in the 40s. Increasing chances for rain as the next system moves up the coastline starting Tuesday afternoon. By early Wednesday morning, area communities could see anywhere from 0.50" to 1" of rainfall.

SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/. Low pressure system continues to track northward on Wednesday with a steady light rain overspreading the area from south to north. Rain rates are likely to increase throughout the day as deep moisture aligns with upper-level lift within the approaching shortwave. Rainfall totals may reach up to 1.5 or 2 inches in a few spots with the best chance of heavy rain isolated to coastal areas. Rain tapers off late Wednesday and Wednesday night as a resurgence of cool air brings overnight lows back into the upper 30s. High pressure builds briefly on Thursday allowing temperatures to jump into the lower 60s with partly cloudy to mostly clear skies. Overnight lows will fall into the upper 30s as cool air advection continues.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. A dry cold front will push through the area early Friday bringing a few passing clouds during the morning with cooler temperatures arriving for the afternoon (highs in the low to mid 50s). On Friday evening, a mid-level shortwave traversing the southeastern US will interact with the frontal boundary on Saturday leading to the development of a low pressure off of the FL Gulf Coast. As the low crosses the panhandle of FL on Saturday and Saturday evening, the NW extent of the disturbance may bring light showers to our coastal areas as inland areas stay mostly dry. Regardless of our precip chances, temperatures will remain cool Sunday and Monday as an upper- level trough combines with the northerly flow behind the exiting low to keep temperatures in the low 50s. High pressure builds for early next week with temperatures remaining below normal.

AVIATION /21Z MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. Cold front pushing to the coast with a rather dramatic change in temperature and winds. Look for northwest flow this afternoon with showers exiting the coast around 20Z. A VFR stratocu ceiling is expected through much of the TAF period with much cooler temps.

Extended Outlook . Periods of MVFR/IFR late Tue night thru Wed due to the passage of low pressure. VFR to dominate late Wed night thru Fri due to Canadian high pressure.

MARINE. Through Tuesday night . High pressure tonight into Tuesday will bring a full circle in wind direction from the offshore/NW direction to N and eventually to the ENE by Tuesday evening between 10 and 15 kts with gusts as high as 20kts. Winds will stay in the ENE direction Tuesday night as the next coastal low pressure system moves up the coast and brings more rainfall chances and thunderstorms beyond 20 NM. Seas over the next 36 hour period will range between 2 and 5 feet from the SW at 6 seconds, the SE at 8 seconds, and the NNE around 5 seconds. Smaller vessels and inexperienced mariners may find difficulty navigating the coastal waters through Tuesday night.

Wednesday through Saturday . Winds become easterly on Wednesday as low pressure approaches from the south. The intensifying low is likely to bring elevated winds and seas to Small Craft Advisory thresholds throughout the duration of Wednesday. Low pressure quickly moves offshore by Wednesday evening, bringing a continuation of northerly winds associated with building high pressure for Thursday. Seas become 2-4 feet as the gradient weakens throughout the day on Thursday. Dry cold front will push through the area on Friday, bringing another brief surge of elevated winds and seas. Low pressure develops to our south on Friday night and Saturday bringing a wind shift from northerly to northeasterly. Gradient increases in response to the deepening surface low on Saturday with NE winds increasing to 15-20 knots. Small Craft Advisory conditions may be possible depending on the proximity of the disturbance through next weekend.

ILM WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. SC . None. NC . Coastal Flood Advisory until 2 PM EST Tuesday for NCZ107. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until 6 AM EST Tuesday for AMZ250-252-254- 256.
