Synopsis
Strong high pressure will continue to build over the area
through early next week bringing the first touch of fall
weather to the area over through tonight. The high will become
centered over the region this weekend then drift offshore while
continuing to influence the weather early next week. A dry cold
front will cross the area Tuesday.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
As of 1015 am Friday..High pressure surface and aloft will
continue over the area into early next week. No significant
changes with the late morning update. The 12z kmhx sounding
shows a very dry column (pwat of 0.67), so a dry day is on tap.

Modest low level moisture could allow for the formation of some
cumulus this afternoon inland, by overall mostly sunny skies
will prevail with temps a few degrees below normal.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 am Saturday
As of 355 am Friday... Continued quiet, pleasant weather with
skies becoming clear and winds inland decoupling, resulting in
patchy, shallow radiational fog forming after midnight. Lows
will range from the cool low to mid 50s inland to the lower 60s
beaches.

Long term Saturday through Thursday
As of 4 am Friday... Surface high pressure will be centered
across the region with upper ridging over the eastern conus
through the weekend with dry weather and mainly clear skies
dominating. Temps gradually moderate as we move into the weekend
with near normal temps returning by Saturday and Sunday.

The surface high slides offshore late in the weekend with
return flow bringing additional warming into next week. A robust
shortwave approaches the area early next week and is progged to
push across the area Monday night with an attendant cold front
moving across the area early Tuesday. Moisture still looks
limited with best dynamics placed north of the area and guidance
is showing little to no precip at this time and will keep
minimal pops in the forecast. Temps expected to be near to a few
degrees above normal for much of next week.

Aviation 15z Friday through Tuesday
Short term through tonight ...

as of 620 am Friday...VFR conditions will generally prevail
through the period. Exceptions will be early this morning and
again early Saturday morning when brief subVFR conditions will
occur as possible MVFR stratus along the coast could push inland
far enough to reach the terminals, or more likely, light winds
inland will allow some patchy, shallow fog to develop.

Long term Saturday through Tuesday ...

as of 415 am Friday... PredVFR conditions expected through the
long term with high pressure dominating. Could see patchy
shallow ground fog during the early morning hours as good
radiational cooling conditions will be present.

Marine
Short term through tonight ...

as of 620 am Friday... Sca's continue for all of the coastal
waters. Winds will continue to diminish today and tonight as
high pressure builds over the waters. Speeds will be lowering to
5-15 kt all waters this afternoon and 10 kt or less tonight.

Long period seas of 6 to 9 ft will be very slow to subside only
subsiding to 4-8 ft overnight.

Long term Saturday through Tuesday ...

as of 415 am Friday... High pressure will be centered over the
into Sunday, then will gradually slide offshore early next week.

Light and variable winds continue into Sunday, then become
s to SW around 5-15 kt late Sunday into Monday. A cold front is
progged to push across the water early Tuesday with winds
becoming N around 10-15 kt
large swells from hurricane humberto will continue to impact the
waters into the weekend, around 4-8 ft Saturday morning, then
slowly subside below 6 ft Saturday evening. Seas expected to be
around 2-4 ft Sunday into Monday, then build to 3-5 ft late
Monday and Tuesday.

Tides coastal flooding
As of 355 am Friday..Longer period swells will cont through the
weekend, keeping a high threat of rip currents along all
beaches. High surf will cont for the east facing beaches from
cape lookout N for breaking waves 8 ft or more thru tonight.

Additionally, significant wave runup from the large swell could
result in ocean overwash along vulnerable stretches of the outer
banks around the time of the high tides which will occur again
midday today.

Mhx watches warnings advisories
Nc... Beach hazards statement until 8 pm edt this evening for ncz195-
196-199-203>205.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
