Synopsis
Strong low pressure south of CAPE hatteras will slowly lift
northeast and further offshore through Monday. A mainly dry
cold front will push through Tuesday with high pressure building
into the area Wednesday and Thursday. Another cold front will
push through late in the week.

Near term tonight
As of 1000 pm sun... Low pressure center continues to push off to
the northeast as shortwave trough continues to traverse the
southeastern u.S. 00z mhx sounding shows a strong low level
inversion at about 900 mb which will keep low level moisture and
low clouds trapped over the entire area for the evening. Some
lingering light rain drizzle remains possible for a few more
hours over obx. Increased cloud cover forecast overnight and
adjusted t TD trends, otherwise no major changes to the
forecast.

Prev disc... Low pressure currently about 275 mi S of cape
hatteras is slowly drifting to the east through the rest of the
afternoon and then lift northeast and accelerate tonight as a
robust upper level trough approaches from the west. Expect winds
to very slowly diminish through the evening, the ramp down a
bit faster late tonight through Monday as the low moves away
from the area. The wind advisory for the obx looks on track to
expire early this evening. Abundant moisture trapped below a
strong low level inversion will keep cloudy skies through the
period. Rain mainly confined to coastal section this afternoon
will slowly pull offshore through the evening. Lows expected
around 40 across the coastal plain to low mid 50s obx.

Short term Monday
As of 215 pm Sunday... Low pressure continues to lift northeast
of the area Monday with the upper level trough axis pushing
across the area, which may help trigger a period of light rain
across the region. A strong low level inversion will persist
with plenty of moisture trapped in the boundary layer and expect
mainly cloudy skies to prevail. Temps will remain well below
average with highs generally in the low to mid 50s.

Long term Monday night through Sunday
As of 300 pm Sunday... Added small pop mainly closer to coast
tue night as short wave crosses. Otherwise not much change with
unsettled weather developing late in the week into the weekend.

Prev disc... Strong high pressure will build over the region in
the wake of the low Tuesday through Thursday. With generally
clear skies, temperatures will be fairly close to climatology,
with highs in the low mid 60s and lows in the low mid 40s.

While differences exist in the details and placement of surface
features, both the GFS and ECMWF indicate a return of unsettled
weather Friday into next weekend. A frontal boundary moves into
the region during the day Friday with increased chances of rain.

The ECMWF develops a strong low that moves inland across the
tennessee valley, while the GFS shows more of a miller type-b
setup with a strong low forming off the carolina coast. Both
models are fairly moist and would indicate high rain chances.

Given the uncertainty this far out in the forecast, will carry
just low chance pops for now, but if current trends continue,
pops will likely go up.

Aviation 03z Monday through Friday
Short term through Monday ...

as of 645 pm sun... Low pressure offshore will continue to slowly
drift away from the area through the period, but plenty of
moisture is expected to remain socked below a strong low-level
inversion keeping sub-vfr conditions through tomorrow night.

MVFR CIGS this evening should lower to ifr overnight as winds
continue to subside, then rebounding to MVFR late Monday
morning. Guidance diverges on whether conditions continue to
improve late Monday or remain sub-vfr. Favored the more
pessimistic guidance as models generally weaken low-level
inversions like these too aggressively.

Long term Monday night through Friday ...

as of 300 pm Sunday... Some pockets of subVFR in fog st poss
late Mon night as winds become light. Tue through Thu shld see
mainlyVFR with little in the way of precip as high pres
dominates. Unsettled weather returns late in the week as front
moves into the area with some pds of subVFR likely.

Marine
Short term through Monday ...

as of 1000 pm Sunday... Winds have come down quite a bit over the
pamlico sound and opted to drop the gale warning here to be
replaced with a SCA until Monday morning. Still gusts over 35
knots offshore with waves anywhere from 11-19 feet per latest
observations and still expect seas to slowly improve through
the period.

Prev disc... Low pressure S of CAPE hatteras will slowly drift
eastward through the evening, then accelerate to the NE late
tonight and Monday. Area obs currently showing northerly winds
around 25-35 kt with gusts around 40-45 kt, highest across the
offshore waters, with seas around 14-19 ft northern and central
waters and 8-14 ft southern waters. Conditions are expected to
slowly improve through the period as the low moves away from the
area and will downgrade or remove headlines as conditions
warrant. Expect wind to diminish below SCA criteria mid day
Monday, though rough seas around 6-11 ft will keep the sca
across the coastal waters beyond the afternoon.

Long term Monday night through Friday ...

as of 300 pm Sunday... Nw winds become light Mon night into tue
as low pres conts to move away. Large seas will slowly subside
thru Tue with all wtrs dropping below 6 ft by late Tue tue
evening. High pres will build across Wed and Thu with NW winds
10 to 20 kts Wed becoming light W later thu, seas wl be 3 to 5
ft wed... Subsiding to 2 to 4 ft thu. Cold front will be
approaching Fri with wsw winds 15 to 25 kts and seas 4 to 6 ft.

Tides coastal flooding
As of 230 pm Sunday... Strong low pressure will slowly drift away
from the area through this evening, then lift quickly away from
the area Monday. We are just coming off the highest tide cycle
expected for this event and have seen many area of ocean
overwash along the obx. With very rough seas with descent wave
energy and run up, could continue to see area experience
overwash during the next two high tide cycles, though not as
severe as this past high tide.

Winds have shifted to the north through the morning and have
seen the water levels begin to recede along the neuse river
this afternoon, while rising along southern portions of hatteras
island and ocracoke where minor coastal flooding has begun.

Winds will slowly diminish through Monday and expect sound side
flooding to gradually improve through tonight.

Will drop the coastal flood advisory for tyrrell, mainland dare,
mainland hyde and beaufort counties with the afternoon package
and downgrade the warning across the obx, downeast carteret,
southern craven, and pamlico counties with the afternoon
forecast package.

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.
