Synopsis
Developing low pressure will move up the east coast tonight and
push a cold front offshore this evening. Cooler high pressure
will build in late week and into the weekend. An unsettled
pattern is expected late in the weekend into early next as
several systems impact the area.

Near term until 6 am Thursday morning
As of 325 pm wed... The main area of warm advection initiated
precipitation is moving rapidly northeast and will be offshore
around 20z. Behind this a couple of lines of showers were
developing ahead of rapidly advancing surface cold front moving
east into the area. This front was associated with a vertically
stacked low over the great lakes. Ahead of the front, it looks
like a weak surface low was trying to form vicinity of cape
lookout in region of 5 mb 3 hourly pressure falls and bagginess
in the pressure pattern. The cold front should catch up with the
low offshore of the outer banks early this evening and begin to
rapidly deepen as it moves up the eastern seaboard overnight.

Not expecting much if any precipitation after 23z as strong
cold dry advection begins behind the cold front. Skies will
clear and winds will shift to NW and increase, especially along
the coast. Lows will fall into the mid to upper 40s to lower 50s
inland, and low to mid 50s along the coast.

Short term 6 am Thursday morning through 6 pm Thursday
As of 325 pm wed... High pressure will build over the area from
the north with much cooler and drier air. Highs will be in the
low to mid 60s under sunny skies. Brisk NW winds combined with
the cooler temps will make it finally feel like fall.

Long term Thursday night through Wednesday
As of 330 am Wednesday... High pressure will build in through
the early weekend bringing a cooler and drier airmass. An
unsettled pattern is expected late in the weekend into early
next week as several systems impact the area.

Thursday night through Saturday... Strong high pressure builds
in from the west Thursday night and Friday bringing a dry and a
much cooler airmass. Lows around 40 inland to low to mid 50s
along the coast and we could even see some upper 30s in coolest
inland locations. The upper ridge crests over the area Saturday
with the surface high migrating offshore with return flow
developing late Sat bringing a warming trend with highs in the
upper 60s to lower 70s.

Saturday night through Tuesday... Upper ridging slides offshore
Saturday night while shortwave energy moving across the south
taps into rich moisture in the gulf of mexico and lifts it
across the southeast and the fa Sunday into Monday. This is
associated with the trough that is currently over southern
mexico and outlooked by nhc. Guidance has tended a bit faster
with this system and could see precip begin across the area late
Saturday night or Sunday with an area of low pressure lifting
across the area Monday. Meanwhile, a longwave mid level trough
and attendant strong cold front digs into the central conus
Monday with another surge of gulf moisture lifting into the area
Monday night ahead of the cold front which is currently progged
to push across the area late Tuesday. Temps expected to be
several degrees above normal ahead of the cold front.

Aviation 20z Wednesday through Monday
Short term through Thursday ...

as of 325 pm wed... Widespread sub-vfr ceilings early this
afternoon will improve toVFR by early evening as high pressure
builds over the area. Associated cold dry advection will result
in clear skies and gusty NW winds tonight and Sat with continued
vfr.

Long term Thursday night through Monday ...

as of 325 pm Wednesday... High pressure builds into the area
Thursday night through Saturday with predVFR conditions
expected. An area of low pressure will lift toward the area late
in the weekend with shower chances increasing late Saturday
night into Monday which could bring periods of sub-vfr
conditions across rtes.

Marine
Short term through Thursday ...

as of 325 pm wed... Sca's continue for all the nc waters. Strong
winds and building seas are expected tonight over the enc
waters as a cold front moves through early evening and low
pressure deepens off the mid atlantic coast. Southerly winds
have increased to 20-30 with higher gusts as expected, and we
could see a 2-3 hour period of marginal gale conditions through
early evening in gusts over the southern and central waters. The
flow will shift to NW 20-30 kt with higher gusts this evening
and continue tonight as strong cold advection occurs behind the
departing cold front. Seas will build 7-10 ft this evening then
subside to 5-8 late tonight due to the onshore flow. High
pressure will build over the waters thu. Winds initially will
diminish to 15-20 kt, but then a secondary NW surge to 20-25 kt
is expected late in the day. Seas could briefly subside to 4-5
ft Thu afternoon but should build back to AOA 6 ft as the winds
increase late.

Long term Thursday night through Monday ...

as of 325 pm Wednesday... SCA conditions expected to continue
into Thursday night in strong post frontal NW flow. NW winds
of 20-25 kt will produce seas 4-7 ft gradually subsiding to 3-5
ft Friday morning. High pressure builds in Friday into Saturday
as NW winds continue to diminish, becoming light and variable
Saturday as the high migrates across the region. The high slides
offshore late Saturday and Sunday with winds becoming S to se
around 10-15 kt with building seas possibly reaching SCA levels
Sunday night and mon.

Tides coastal flooding
As of 350 pm wed... Strong S winds late today will become strong
w NW behind a cold front this evening and tonight. Water levels
remain elevated across the sounds and given the forecast wind
directions, minor water level rises will be possible for the
soundside outer banks (duck to ocracoke) late today through at
least early thu. Inundation of 1-2 ft is possible, so a coastal
flood advisory has been issued through 9z for minor soundside
coastal flooding along the outer banks.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
