Synopsis
A cold front will stall offshore tonight and Sunday. Low
pressure will lift northeast well offshore of the southeast
coast early next week. Another cold front will approach the area
mid to late week.

Near term until 6 am Sunday morning
As of 930 pm Saturday... Patchy rain conts over mainly the nrn
tier. Will cont chc pops overnight highest N init... Also added
patchy drizzle all areas. Temps have dropped to mid 60s NW tier
already so lowered mins a bit.

Prev disc... Latest upper air analysis shows a broad positively-
tilted trough draped across the northeast u.S. With eastern
n.C. Near the right- entrance region of an h3 50-60 kt jet. Some
weak mid- level energy at h5 was noted in SPC mesoanalysis
drifting into central nc. At the surface, a ridge of high
pressure (indicative of cad) continues to strengthen in the wake
of the cold front now stalled off the coast. Overrunning 850 mb
southerly flow over the front, combined with the mid-level
vorticity advection and weak jet support has aided in scattered
shower activity across much of the area.

Expect rain to continue into the evening as the aforementioned
mid-level disturbance slowly migrates east and the front remains
pinned near the coast. The extensive cloud cover today, as
expected, greatly hindered instability and the odds of any real
appreciable QPF associated with convective downpours. Kept pops
at likely but did lower QPF quite a bit as a result and took out
any mention of thunder as best instability looks to be offshore.

Have pops gradually trending lower into the morning hours as
mid- level support degrades. Coastal areas closest to the
surface front could still see a shower or two and kept chance
pops here.

Temps cooler still as the wedge persists with lows upper 60s
inland and low to mid 70s along the coast.

Short term 6 am Sunday morning through 6 pm Sunday
The upper level trough gradually shifts east with increasingly
dry air filtering in at the mid and upper levels. The high
pressure ridge is expected to continue strengthening Sunday. The
bulk of precip should remain offshore near the front coastal
trough but cannot rule out a few showers or two near the coast.

Otherwise with increasing dry air cloud cover should finally
start to slowly decrease through the day. The wedge should still
keep temps pleasant for late august with highs again upper 70s
inland and low 80s closer to the coast.

Long term Sunday night through Saturday
As of 345 pm sat... A drying trend for the latter half of the
weekend through early next week, then a cold front moves through
mid week with the next chance of showers or storms. Mainly dry
for the end of the week with high pres moving back in.

Sunday night through Monday... The mid to upper level trough
over the NE CONUS will will slide farther east, with high pres
ridging southward into the carolinas and possible tropical or
subtropical system moving NE well off the coast. This regime
will bring mainly dry conditions as drier dewpoints advect in
with the high and the quasi- stationary frontal boundary
remaining well south of the area. Decreased pops markedly,
though kept some small 20-30% along immediate coast where some
showers may brush by, though mainly should remain over the
coastal waters.

Much cooler for Sun night as td's drop into the low 60s inland
to. Lows will range from the low mid 60s coastal plain to around
70 coastal locales. Highs Monday pleasant with continued lowered
dewpoints, and mainly in the 80-85 degree range.

Tuesday... Continued mainly dry as tempo ridging continues with
next shortwave and front still well to the west. Temps moderate
a bit more into the mid to possibly some upper 80s.

Wednesday through Thursday... Good agreement amongst 24 12z
global model suite in next shortwave and cold front swinging
through. Have continued the chc pops for sct showers storms
mainly Wed and Wed night. Kept in a chc pop for thur as well as
there are some timing differences on the exit of the shortwave
and frontal boundary. Temps will be near climo with highs
mid upr 80s and lows in the mid upr 60s interior to low 70s
coast.

Friday through Saturday... Fcst a bit more murky this period.

Some indication the frontal boundary lifts north or becomes hung
up near the coast, and some showers develop with increasing
fgen, so will keep chc pops coastal areas and silent 20 pop for
interior zones. Latest ecm has a clean FROPA and dry high pres,
though would like to see more run-to-run continuity before
removing pops. Temps will continue near climo this period.

Aviation 01z Sunday through Thursday
Short term through Sunday ...

as of 630 pm Saturday... Confident will have mainly subVFR thru
sun morn... Difficult to determine how much ifr wl occur. Bulk
of guidance keeps CIGS in MVFR range, however some periods of
ifr poss espcly early then again twrd morning. On Sunday cigs
shld slowly lift and eventually begin to sct out as drier air
works in withVFR expected in the aftn.

Long term Sunday night through Thu ...

as of 345 pm sat... A quasi-stationary boundary will remain
well south later this weekend through early next week, therefore
a drier regime expected. Still could see some ocnl subVFR
mainly in lowered CIGS as some low level moisture remains, but
generally a drying trend is taking shape. Next cold front with
possible showers storms arrives by Wednesday.

Marine
Short term through Sunday ...

as of 930 pm sat... Ne winds grad increasing along the coast and
that trend will cont overnight into sun. Expect SCA to grad
develop N to S later tonight and Sunday.

Prev disc... Current obs show seas around 2 feet south of
hatteras and 3 to 5 north with winds generally around 10-15
knots out of the N nne. Seas never got quite to 6 feet but have
lingered at around 5 feet north of oregon inlet. Similar
conditions expected in the near term before a tightening
gradient between the front and the ridge increases winds to
10-20 knots, increasing to around 20 to 25 knots from north to
south by Sunday afternoon. Scas have been expanded to all waters
by Sunday morning and continuing into the long term. Seas
gradually build to 6 feet for all waters by Sunday night.

Long term Sunday night through Thu ...

as of 345 pm sat... Ne winds peak Sun evening with high pres
inland and low pres well off the coast maximizing the gradient.

Winds solid 15-25 kt with some higher gusts, and SCA for all
rivers and sounds except for the pamlico river. The wind
gradient begins to relax on Monday, though seas will remain
elevated for longer, through Tuesday. Return flow to the E and
then S develops on Wed though will be quite light no higher
than 10 kts ahead of next front that sweeps through sometime
Wednesday night, which will bring winds back around to a nrly
direction by thu.

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.
