Synopsis
Cool high pressure will build in through early this weekend. An
unsettled pattern is expected late in the weekend into early
next week as several systems impact the area.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
As of 1 pm Thursday... No changes needed for the early afternoon
update as skies remain clear except for some transient jet-level
cirrus impacting inland areas. Temperature-wise, highs will be mainly
in the mid 60s with northerly breezes making it feel even
cooler.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 am Friday
As of 215 am thu... High pressure will continue to build over
the area tonight. Excellent radiational cooling conditions
develop with mostly clear skies and light winds inland. Lows
will drop into the upper 30s to low 40s inland, and upper 40s to
low 50s along the beaches. Very patchy frost may be possible at
sheltered inland locations early Fri morning.

Long term Friday through Wednesday
As of 345 am thurs... High pressure will continue to build in
through the early weekend bringing a cooler and drier weather.

An unsettled pattern is expected late in the weekend into early
next week as several systems impact the area.

Friday through Saturday... Strong high pressure will build in
from the west through Friday, while the mid upper trough axis
pushes offshore... As drier and a much cooler airmass continues
to filter in. The mid upper ridge will build and crest over the
area Saturday as the sfc high begins to slide offshore...

allowing for a S SE flow. Friday's temperatures is expected to
range btw 60-65 degree, while overnight lows around 40 inland
to low to mid 50s along the coast and we could even see some
upper 30s in coolest inland locations. Saturday's high will
gradually increase into the upper 60s to lower 70s.

Saturday night through Tuesday... The mid upper ridge will
gradually move north Saturday night as the sfc high slides
offshore completely. A tropical sub-tropical disturbance
currently over the bay of campeche (70% chance of developing
within the next 48 hrs as per nhc) will combine with a lingering
shortwave skirting across the gulf states. This system and it's
associated tropical moisture is expected to lift and move
across the southeast and the fa Sunday into Monday. The latest
models are becoming in better agreement in the timing, but the
gfs continues to the fastest. The area can expect rain to start
as early late Saturday night Sunday as the area of low pressure
lifts across the area Monday. Meanwhile, a longwave mid level
trough and attendant strong cold front digs into the central
conus Monday with another surge of gulf moisture lifting into
the area Monday night ahead of the cold front which is currently
progged to push across the area late Tuesday. Temps expected to
be several degrees above normal ahead of the cold front.

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

as of 1 pm Thursday...VFR conditions should continue through
this TAF cycle. Gusty W wnw winds should begin to subside early
in the day on Friday, only minimal cirrus clouds are expected
through the period.

Long term Friday through Monday ...

as of 345 am thurs... High pressure will continue to build across
the region through Saturday withVFR conditions to dominate. An
area of low pressure will lift toward the area late in the
weekend with shower chances increasing late Saturday night
through Monday which could bring periods of sub-vfr conditions.

Marine
Short term through Thursday ...

as of 1 pm Thursday... Seas have subsided a bit as expected, but
a few W wnw gusts to 25 knots continue over the coastal waters.

Even with an additional lull in the wind expected this
afternoon, will continue SCA for tonight as a secondary surge of
20-25 knots is still expected. Some of the short-term models are
not quite as strong with the winds tonight, but will make no
changes at this time. Seas could build back to AOA 6 ft as the
winds increase tonight.

Long term Friday through Monday ...

as of 345 am thurs... High pressure will continue to build
Friday, then slide offshore late Saturday. NW winds will 10-20
knots Friday, then becoming light and variable Saturday. As the
high slides offshore late Saturday Sunday, winds will become
s to SE 10-20 knots through Monday as seas build to SCA levels
Sunday night Monday and continues into Tuesday.

Tides coastal flooding
As of 640 am thu... Extended cf advisory through late this
afternoon for minor soundside flooding along the outer banks
(duck to ocracoke). Had some reports last evening, and given
that water levels remain 1-1.5 ft above normal in the sounds and
gusty W NW winds will continue... Expect the threat to continue
as well. Inundation of 1-2 ft is possible.

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.
