SHORT TERM /TONIGHT/. As of 230 AM Thurs . The wind finally relax, but cold air advection continues to filter into the region. Temps will drop into the upper 20s to low 30s inland and mid/upper 30s along the Outer Banks, under clear skies.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. As of 315 AM Thu . High pressure will bring cooler and drier air late week into the weekend. A return to warm conditions by early next week with continued dry weather. Next cold front may move through around mid week.

Friday through Sunday . A broad upper level trough will persist across the eastern United States for the end of the week into the weekend as surface high pressure builds in from the north and west. This will lead to a period of slightly below normal temperatures and mostly dry weather. Reinforcing cold fronts will push through this weekend. Very little moisture with the fronts and associated shortwave energy, so will leave a dry fcst. Highs Fri and Sat in the low/mid 50s, then moderating to the mid/upr 50s by Sun. Overnight lows in the upper 20s to low 30s inland and mid/upr 30s along the coast.

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.
