SYNOPSIS
An unsettled pattern will persist across ENC through the workweek as several disturbances impact the area bringing multiple rounds of rain to ENC this week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM MONDAY MORNING/
As of 10 PM Sun...A weak ridge of high pressure will remain across northern NC tonight while a weak low develops along a coastal trough to our south.

Ahead of this system quiet conditions will continue through early tonight with light winds and mostly cloudy skies. Some modest cooling is expected through the clouds with early lows in the mid to upper 50s.

Later tonight cloud cover will thicken and lower across the CWA with rain reaching the OBX and coast after midnight, and then spreading inland early tomorrow morning. Areas of fog will likely develop again inland, but should not become extensively dense overnight.

SHORT TERM /6 AM MONDAY MORNING THROUGH 6 PM MONDAY/
As of 330 PM Sun... Any leftover fog should quickly dissipate after sunrise as rainfall makes its way further inland and fog dissipates.
Previously mentioned surface low continues to track N'wards likely tracking somewhere between our coastal waters and the Pamlico Sound by Mon afternoon before beginning to depart off to the north Mon night. Rain will continue to spread inland with no thunder threat forecast. The biggest challenge for Mon will be how far inland moisture will get with some of the high res guidance suggesting that rainfall does not make it past Hwy 17 on Mon. However, given much of the guidance still shows at least some light rain intruding into our western zones elected to at least keep Chc PoP's here with a low track moving N across Hatteras tomorrow afternoon. High temps get into the mid to upper 60s inland with some mid 50s found along the N'rn OBX.

LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/
As of 220 AM Sun...The models continue to indicate a very unsettled pattern for the upcoming week as a series of low pressure systems move across or in vicinity of eastern NC bringing a very good chance for rain. Several inches are possible by the end of next weekend. While there is still significant uncertainty in the timing of and track of these lows, there is strong agreement that the weather across eastern NC will be very wet, especially but not limited to the coast.

Monday night through Tuesday...An area of low pressure will track slowly along or just off the NC coast Mon night with rain persisting into Mon night. Right now the heaviest amounts with this system are expected east of Highway 17 and there could be tight gradient in the precipitation coverage with the NAM/Canadian keeping most of the precipitation along the coast.
The consensus of the other models is to bring at least some light amounts as far west as I95. There are also issues with timing as some guidance produces the bulk of the precipitation Mon night and lingers it further into Tue. The forecast will follow a faster solution which is in line with the multi-model consensus. Though a chance of rain will be in the forecast Tue, at this time not expecting much in the way of coverage or amounts as mid level dry slotting develops Mon night and persists into Tue. Temps will cont above climo with 60s to around 70 interior and 50s to 60s beaches, with lows well above climo continuing.

Wednesday through Saturday...Confidence continues to be high for a mid week wet period, and will continue likely PoPs centered on Wed afternoon and evening with highest ensemble support during this period. The rain threat with this system will linger into Thu as a trailing cold front moves through.
This system looks to contain a decent GOM moisture feed and deep srly moist flow, with another chance of fairly significant QPF amounts of over 1" for most. Drier weather will be forecast for Thu night and Fri as high pressure briefly builds in. The models are indicating yet another low passing to the west over next weekend which would bring another good chance for widespread rain beginning Fri night and persisting into at least a portion of next weekend. Will keep PoPs in the chance range due to typical uncertainty that far out in time. Temps will cont to be well above climo for early March with lows in the 50s and highs in the 60s to low 70s.

AVIATION /03Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/
SHORT TERM /through Monday Evening/...
As of 7 PM Sun...Subpar flying conditions will continue tonight as low clouds and eventually some fog reforms across the area overnight.

Conditions have temporarily improved to VFR across most of the airspace, but as temperatures cool this evening, low level stratus should reform with a moist low level airmass still in place. Some patchy fog will also accompany the stratus, though the bigger impact to aviation is likely to be the stratus which will form initially around 2000-3000 ft, and then lower overnight, reaching IFR levels soon after midnight. The best chances for IFR will be along and south of US 70, as well as east of US 17, with areas to the north/west remaining mostly at MVFR levels.

Additionally, a weak surface low will develop overnight to our south and lift northwards into Eastern NC tomorrow morning, which will bring scattered to widespread rain to the area for most of tomorrow. This will likely cause IFR conditions to persist through most of the day along the coast, including as far west as KEWN and the US 17 corridor. Farther west, rain will be scattered enough that some improvement to MVFR ceilings is expected. Flying conditions will eventually improve sometime tomorrow night as this system exits to the north.

LONG TERM /Monday afternoon through Friday/...
As of 220 AM Sun...Expecting occasional sub VFR conditions Mon evening into possibly early Tue as low pressure and associated precipitation move across eastern NC. Widespread precipitation is once again expected to develop across the area Wed into Thu with occasional periods of sub VFR conditions.

MARINE
SHORT TERM /through Monday/...
As of 10 PM Sun...NE'rly winds at 10-20 kts with 25 kt gusts will continue through tomorrow morning, with some backing possible as a low pressure moves across the waters from the south. Winds will shift to more of a NW'rly direction behind the departing low at 10-15 kts across our southern waters Mon afternoon. Winds will be close to SCA criteria, but more importantly seas build to 5-7 ft overnight and through tomorrow.

LONG TERM /Monday night through Friday/...
As of 220 AM Sun...Elevated seas AOA 6 ft are expected across the waters through the period due to stronger flow further offshore causing higher seas to advect closer to the coast. On Wed S/SW flow increases to 15-25 kt as low pressure passes to the west and this will maintain the elevated seas through late week.

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