Synopsis
High pressure offshore will extend west into eastern north
carolina through Friday as a trough lingers well inland. A
cold front will slowly approach the area Saturday and move
offshore by Sunday.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
As of 1220 pm Thursday... Still quiet over region with satl
showing cont mclr skies. Strong heating is leading to good sfc
based instab that will likely reach AOA 4000 this aftn. High
res mdls cont to show convection firing mid aftn espcly srn
tier. Shear is quite weak but given the expected strong instab a
cpl storms could briefly pulse to svr with gusty winds main
concern.

Prev disc... A few showers storms are clipping the far
northwestern corner of the CWA at daybreak. Will have small
pops across the northern tier for the next couple of hours. With
weak mid-level flow and minimal forcing other than sea breeze
interactions, today will be similar to the past day or two with
scattered convection forming during the early to mid afternoon,
mainly along and west of the highway 17 corridor. Temperatures
will likewise will quite similar to yesterday with upper 80s to
lower 90s inland and mid upper 80s beaches today.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 am Friday
As of 350 am Thursday... Any convection should again wane fairly
quickly with loss of heating this evening. This will lead to
another warm and humid night with some leftover debris
cloudiness likely. Lows will be in the mid upper 70s area-wide
tonight.

Long term Friday through Thursday
As of 345 am thurs... A slow moving cold front will approach enc
Friday, and cross through the forecast area over the weekend,
leading to another period of unsettled weather which may continue
into early next week.

Friday through Friday night... A cold front will slowly approach enc
from the north allowing for scattered to widespread showers and
thunderstorms to develop late Friday afternoon, mainly over the
northern half of the forecast area. Ahead of the front, temperatures
will rise into the upper 80s to lower 90's inland as pw values are
above 2.00" leading to unstable conditions. CAPE values are expected
to range 2500-3000 j kg, LI values AOA -7 and shear 15-20kt...

allowing for strong to severe thunderstorms with the main threat of
damaging winds. Continued with chance to likely pops for this
northern half, with some heavy rain and training cells possible.

Southern zones ESP near crystal coast and SRN obx should remain on
the dry side. Convection should ease southward through the overnight
affecting much of the fa, but at the same time slowly weakening
ending the heaviest rain threat after midnight.

Saturday... Models agreement with the cold front slowly crossing
through nc on Saturday, passing south of the region and off the
southern nc coast by Saturday evening. Maintained the likely pops
for especially SRN zones on Sat where the best coverage of precip is
anticipated as the front moves south. Heavy rain and training of
cells is possible and flooding may be an issue, especially
considering the copious amounts of rain we have seen this past week.

Sunday... Models continue to show less precip coverage as high
pressure wedges in from the north, but a low pressure off the coast
can keep clouds and some scattered showers, especially over the
southern and eastern zones. Expect highs in the low 80s under a N to
ne winds. Low temps more seasonable, reaching the upper 60s interior
to low mid 70s beaches.

Monday through Wednesday... Models are slightly a better agree with
the stall front off the nc coast, while a low pressure system moves
along it and moves NE away from the coast as high pressure builds in
models have been trending drier for Monday and Tuesday, but went
with chance pops Monday through Wednesday, best chances nearer the
coast. Cooler temperatures will likely continue with highs only in
the low to mid 80s, and low temps into the 60s and low 70s.

Aviation 16z Thursday through Monday
Short term through Friday ...

as of 1220 pm Thursday... Will cont to fcstVFR conditions. Wdly
sct to sct storms expected this aftn but limited cvrg wl only
use vcts wording... Any impacts that do occur shld be brief.

Convection will dissipate this evening with no precip expected
overnight. Light SW brz shld again limit threat for any fog st
overnight. ContVFR Fri morn with little or no precip then shld
see an uptick in convective cvrg late Fri espcly NRN tier ahead
of cold front that may lead to some subVFR at times.

Long term Friday night through Monday ...

as of 345 am thurs... Scattered to widespread showers and
thunderstorms will develop as a slow moving cold front moves
into the area Friday evening and overnight. The front will
slowly push south through the area this weekend, leading to some
periods of MVFR to ifr conditions. Conditions are expected to
improve Sunday and Monday.

Marine
Short term today and tonight ...

as of 1220 pm Thursday... No signif changes planned. Will again
be very close to SCA pamlico sound and portions of coastal wtrs
later today into the evening as ssw winds peak.

Prev disc... Winds gusts have dropped below 25 knots and have
lowered all sca's for area waters as of daybreak. The remainder
of the day should have SW winds 10-20 knots with seas 3-5 feet
with some longer period swell energy continuing over the
northern waters (11-14 sec). Winds tonight continue SW at 10-20
knots with seas 3-5 feet.

Long term Friday through Monday ...

as of 345 am thurs... A slow moving cold front will approach the
marine zones late Friday. Ahead of the front, SW winds 15-20 kts
with possible gust to 25 kts and seas 3-5 ft. Winds and seas then
weaken slightly as a slow moving cold front enters the region. Winds
will turn to the W at 10-15 kts early Saturday, and then as the
front slowly sinks south winds will turn to the N NE behind it
through the day. May see some ocnl SCA develop again Sunday into
early next week as sustained 15-20 kt winds develop with seas
approaching 6 ft.

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.
