Synopsis
Strong high pressure will continue to build in from the north
and northeast though the end of the week bringing the first
touch of fall weather to the area. The high will become centered
over the region this weekend then drift offshore early next
week.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
As of noon thu... No significant changes with the midday update.

Stratus deck has largely eroded this afternoon, with mostly
sunny skies prevailing across much of the area. High res
guidance indicates that some sprinkles remain possible mainly
across the obx, but based on radar and surface obs, this is
likely overdone so dry conditions expected to continue. Well
below normal temps continue as breezy northeast flow brings a
cooler maritime-like airmass to eastern nc.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 am Friday
As of 245 am thu... High pressure will cont to build S toward the
area. Shld see mclr skies across the region and as winds
diminish inland will have good radiational cooling with lows
approaching 50. Brz will cont cst with lows upr 50s to lower
60s.

Long term Friday through Wednesday
As of 300 am Thursday... 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 Tuesday. Moisture 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 the first half of next week.

Aviation 18z Thursday through Tuesday
Short term through tonight ...

as of 1 pm thu...VFR conditions generally prevail through the
period. Sub-vfr conditions are possible overnight as possible
MVFR stratus along the coast could push inland far enough to
reach the terminals, or light winds inland could allow some
shallow fog to develop, but the likelihood of either of these is
too low to include in the forecast at this point.

Long term Friday through Monday ...

as of 330 am Thursday... PredVFR conditions expected through the
long term with high pressure dominating. Could see patch shallow
ground fog during the early morning hours as good radiational
cooling conditions will be present.

Marine
Short term through tonight ...

as of noon thu... Breezy northeast winds continue this afternoon
and, with winds diminishing a bit slower than expected, have
extended the SCA for the all major rivers except the pamlico,
and the sounds north or oregon inlet through the afternoon.

For the cstl waters seas are quite high and will be slow to
diminish keeping SCA going thru period. Winds of 20 to 30 kts
this morn will diminish to mainly 10 to 20 kts this evening and
be mainly 15 kts or less by late tonight. Seas of 7 to 13 feet
this morning will slowly subside to 5 to 10 feet tonight highest
outer central and NRN wtrs.

Long term Friday through Monday ...

as of 330 am Thursday... High pressure will be centered over the
waters Friday into Sunday, then will gradually slide offshore
early next week. N to NE winds around 10-15 kt to start the day
Friday,diminish to 10 kt or less Friday afternoon, then will be
variable through Sunday. By late Sunday into Monday, the winds

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.
