SYNOPSIS
A cold front will move through this evening. The next front passes late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning.

NEAR TERM /TONIGHT/
As of 1010 PM Tue...Convection currently over the Pamlico Sound will continue to grad weaken over the next hour or so. A cold front is forecast to move offshore later this evening, with tstm threat decreasing. CAA behind the front isn't forecast to be overly strong, but it will feel cooler thanks to lowering dewpoints. Some guidance is hinting at the potential for fog development behind the front, perhaps especially where thunderstorms form today. This seems plausible given a lack of stronger post- frontal winds. At this time, though, coverage of fog is too patchy and areal placement of rainfall uncertain, so will leave fog out of fcst attm.

SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY/
As of 330 PM Tue...Light offshore (NW) flow is expected behind the fropa, though synoptic flow is quite weak, and by afternoon local sea/sound/river breezes will dominate. With lack of any forcing and drier air intrusion with TD's in the 50s to low 60s, no precip expected. Highs will be in the mid 80s area wide, except for the OBX and immediate beaches, which will be in the upper 70s to low 80s.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/
As of 0400 Monday...Mostly quiet long term with dry reinforcing front clearing Wednesday allowing cool high pressure to build in late week.

Rest of Workweek...Upper trough persists with shortwaves passing through the base of the trough Wednesday and again on Thursday with weak SFC trough developing inland behind the front. This troughing inland will delay the arrival of the SFC high from the NW, keeping temps fairly warm Wed. Forecast remains dry through this period save for Thurs night into Friday when a shortwave aloft sharpens the upper trough that has been relatively broad over ECONUS. Temps cool end of the week as the high pressure begins spilling over the area behind a reinforcing front pushing the inland troughing offshore. MaxTs in upper 70s, MinTs in the 50s.

Weekend...Upper trough will be offshore as ridging builds over the area through the entire column with SFC high almost directly overhead Saturday morning pushing offshore the latter half the weekend.

Early Next Week...Get back to warm and moist Serly flow regime with the high pressure now offshore and a developing shortwave approaching from the W leading to increase in cloudiness and rain chances.

AVIATION /02Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/
SHORT TERM /through Wednesday/...
As of 730 PM Tue...Some isolated to sct thunderstorms expected across coastal counties of ENC through this evening, best chances at EWN. Where TSRA occur, sub- VFR VIS can be expected, in addition to 40kt+ wind gusts and hail. In the wake of the TSRA, patchy low CIGs or BR/FG may develop, especially where it rains. Due to coverage of rain uncertainty, will not put fg in fcst attm. Otherwise VFR conditions expected through the period.

LONG TERM /Wednesday night through Sunday/...
As of 0400 Tuesday...A drying trend is setting up for the remainder of the workweek with Thursday night being the exception.

MARINE
SHORT TERM /through Wednesday/...
As of 1010 PM Tue...Shra and a couple storms will affect the waters and sounds through late evening. Latest obs show W-SW winds 5-10 kt with seas 2-3 ft. For Wed afternoon, local sea/sound/river breezes will dominate due to weak general winds, but will be light, less than 10 kt. Seas will be 3 ft or less through Wed.

LONG TERM /Wednesday night through Sunday/...
As of 0400 Tuesday...SFC trough/reinforcing front approaches and moves through Wed night, turning winds Nerly for the remainder of the work week. Seas generally falling through the week; 2-4ft Tues, 2-3ft Wed, 1-3ft late week.

MHX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
NC...None.
MARINE...None.
