SYNOPSIS. Cold front pushes offshore this evening. Cool high pressure will then build over the area Tuesday through Thursday. Another strong low pressure system will likely impact the area this weekend.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THIS MORNING/. As of 115 AM Tue . Trailing cold front behind the strong storm system that moved through the area today has pushed offshore, and colder, drier air continues to move into the area. Temps have dropped into the 40s and low 50s at this hour, with lows likely to range from the low 40s inland to the upper 40s along the Outer Banks.

As the upper level low slowly moves overhead tonight, some widely scattered light showers are possible beginning in the next hour or so through around sunrise. Most of the shower activity should remain north of US 70.

SHORT TERM /6 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH 6 PM WEDNESDAY/. As of 350 PM Mon . Large cut-off low centered over the NY/Ontario border will drag cold air south across much of the Mid Atlantic and Southeast. While a modest SW wind will persist tomorrow, 850mb temp anomolies of -10 to -15 Celsius across much of the Southeast will only result in strong cold air advection. Despite sunny skies, aftn high temps Tue will only reach the upper 40s to around 50 inland with mid 50s along the OBX.

Highs Wed will be in the upper 40s to low- 50s, warming into the mid- upper 50s Thu. Overnight lows will drop to or below freezing for most inland locations Wed and Thu mornings.

Friday through Monday . Models still show a low pressure system impacting the area this weekend, but quite a bit different with respect to timing and specifics. High pressure will continue to shift offshore Friday. Sfc low is progged to strengthen and lift through the SE while strong upper low over the central plains and approaches the Carolinas. Forecast specifics still tbd, but periods of heavy rain, strong winds and coastal impacts all possible.

Later this morning through sunrise, there could be a period of MVFR ceilings as some scattered showers push across the area associated with an upper level low. Thereafter, VFR conditions are expected with skies clearing through the rest of the morning.

Long Term /Tuesday through Friday/ . As of 3 AM Mon . Pred VFR conditions expected through the period with high pressure in control. W wind gusts 20-25 kt expected Tue.

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.
