SYNOPSIS
A cold front then pushes through this morning. High pressure dominates the rest of the weekend into next week.

NEAR TERM /Through Today/
As of 345 AM Sat...Diffuse cold front currently moving s to sewrd through nrn NC, with only some iso showers out ahead of it moving through ENC early this morning. Iso showers will move off the coast by around sunrise, with sct clouds and and sun in it's wake. CAPEs will pool acrs srn half of the FA ahead of stronger back door front, which will move through the region this afternoon. With initial front washing out acrs the Crystal Coast region, a pinned sea breeze will form today, and be the focus for sct tsra later this afternoon. With instability building to aoa 1.5k J/KG, and shear vals aoa 25 kt, a stronger storm or two is possible, though with main forcing sfc based and not much upr support, no svr storms are expected. Pops are highest along the Crystal Coast and coastal Onslow, in the 30-40% range, and taper back quickly n of this region, to dry for the northern 2/3 of the FA. It will be quite hot today, with nwrly to nrly flow keeping temps in the 90s all the way to the Crystal Coast. The OBX will be refreshed by n to ne flow off the cooler waters, and highs only in the low 80s here, particularly the nrn OBX.

SHORT TERM /Tonight/
As of 345 AM Sat...Some lingering showers possible early this evening, esp swrn zones, before drying occurs with deep nerly flow overtaking ENC. This will bring drier air to the region, and pleasant overnight temps are expected with clear skies and light winds allowing for lows to drop back to the 60-65 range inland, to upr 60s to near 70 coast.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/
As of 3 AM Saturday...

Key Points: - Extended period of warm, dry weather through next week

Sunday - Tuesday...Strong ridging will build over the eastern US through mid-week, which will bring several days of warm, dry weather for ENC. Although temps will still be plenty warm each day (low 90s coastal plain, mid 80s OBX), onshore easterly flow will work in our favor to keep us from even hotter temps.

Wednesday - Friday...There are still notable differences in the long range models, but the consensus is that an upper level low will develop east of the Bahamas and move west towards the Gulf of Mexico. In addition, surface troughing will develop across ENC on Wednesday and stick around through the end of the work week. PoPs remain below mentionable until Thursday, however, given the lack of moisture in the column. Confidence in precipitation for coastal communities is not high enough to go greater than slight chance at this time.

This extended period of warm, dry weather will also present increased fire weather concerns through the week with afternoon minimum RHs dipping to the mid 30s.

AVIATION /08Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/
SHORT TERM /through this evening/...
As of 2 AM Sat...Front is forecast to be crossing coastal TAF sites around sunrise with N-Nerly winds today as high pressure beings to build over the area. A few SHRA or TSRA may develop this afternoon along the seabreeze, best chance srn coastal sites 18-00Z, but probabilities are too low and covg not enough to include explicitly in the TAFs attm. Have mentioned a vcty shower for KOAJ as this area has the best chance to see some precip later today.

LONG TERM /Saturday night through Wednesday/...
As of 3 AM Saturday...VFR conditions expected through the period with high pressure remaining dominant through the period.

MARINE
SHORT TERM /through tonight/...
As of 345 AM Sat..A period of 10-20kt northeasterly winds behind back door cold front today as it moves through during the late morning and afternoon. A few gusts to 25 kt possible with the nerly surge this afternoon, though not long enough duration to warrant any SCA headlines. Seas build to 3-4 ft this afternoon with the nerly winds, with some 5 ft sets possible outer ctrl waters later afternoon into evening.

LONG TERM /Saturday night through Wednesday/...
As of 3 AM Saturday...Sub-SCA, warm, and dry through the period.

Sunday: NE 10-15 kt, 2-4 ft (5 ft offshore)
Monday-Tuesday: E 5-10 kt, 2-4 ft Wednesday: E 10-15 kt, 2-3 ft (4-5 ft offshore)

MHX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
NC...None.
