SYNOPSIS
High pressure builds into the area from the south this weekend and dominates into early next week with a dry frontal passage occurring Monday night. Ridging reestablishes itself by Tuesday with the next potential frontal system at the end of next week.

NEAR TERM /Tonight/
As of 330 PM Fri...Afternoon strato cu will become more dense this evening as a potent upr trough swings east through NC. Have inc pops to the chc/sct range for the first part of the evening, as dynamics are quite strong with good div aloft. Have added thunder to the grids, as steep low/mid level lapse rates will be in place despite the low CAPE (<400 J/KG) vals. Some small hail (pea size) may result in the more potent/heavier showers due to relatively cool air aloft. Gusty winds will accompany the showers as well and may briefly gust to above 30 mph. CAA ensues afterwards, with breezy conditions on the coast with skies quickly clearing by midnight. Lows range from the 40s interior to low/mid 50s beaches.

SHORT TERM /SATURDAY/
As of 330 PM Fri...ENC will be under lee troughing with bluster wrly winds cont. The atms will be quite a bit drier, and thus humidities in the mid 20s% combined with the west winds gusting to 25+ kt will produce an increased threat of wildfires, esp for the Coastal Plain counties which did not receive much rain the other night. Highs will be mainly in the low 70s, with upper 60s on the OBX.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/
As of 300 AM Friday...High pressure builds in from the south and west over the weekend and settles in off the SE Coast early next week bringing fair weather to ENC from Sat to late next week, where our next chance of rain exists.

Sun through midweek next week...Upper trough eventually pushes away from the Mid-Atlantic on Sun with more zonal flow overspreading the Carolinas this weekend before upper ridging builds across the Eastern CONUS. A weak s/w trough may track across the Carolinas Sun night into Mon morning before ridging establishes itself. At the surface, high pressure builds in from the south and west on Sun before setting up in the Sargasso Sea off the SE Coast early next week.

As a second s/w trough moves across ENC Sun night into Mon, dry cold front approaches and outside of some elevated SW'rly winds and additional cloud cover Sun night little in the way of impacts will be felt from this front. Afterwards high pressure ridging remains in place promoting dry conditions and a gradual warming trend through Thursday. Frontal system approaches from the west as a low lifts to our north Friday into Saturday.

AVIATION /19Z FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/
SHORT TERM /through Sat/...
As of 2 PM Fri...Sct/bkn strato cu will become more bkn this evening as a potent upr system swings through. This feature may bring a brief pd of showers along with iso thunder. Gusty winds to 25+ kt and small hail (pea size) are possible with the heavier showers. Gusty winds will return after sunrise on Sat with W winds gusting to 25+ kt though skies should be mo clear.

LONG TERM /Saturday night through Wednesday/...
As of 3 AM Friday...Expect primarily VFR conditions through the TAF period with a high pressure gradually building in from the south and west through the weekend and into early next week. The main concern will be the gusty winds on Sat with SW to W'rly winds potentially gusting 20+ kts. Much lighter winds are then forecast from Sun onwards.

MARINE
SHORT TERM /through Sat/...
As of 330 PM Fri...A brief lull in the gusty winds occuring as gusts fall below 25 kts, but as a surface trough quickly sweeps E'wards across the region wind gusts will increase once again tonight to 25+ kts. Have added back in the inland rivers to the SCA suite as west winds efficient mix down the length of the rivers. The west winds finally diminish Sat afternoon, and seas will quickly follow suit as they are offshore winds, with SCA's ending all areas by 5PM.

LONG TERM /Saturday night through Tuesday/...
As of 3 AM Friday...Winds finally ease Sat evening down to 10-15 kts with gusts up to 20 kts ending the SCA's across our inland waters. 4-6 ft seas north of Hatteras and 4-8 ft seas south of Hatteras Saturday morning will gradually lower as the winds slowly ease with widespread 3-6 ft seas found across all waters by Sat evening. Better boating conditions remain in place through Sun before an incoming surface trough tightens the gradient Sun night bringing the potential for more low-end SCA conditions before quieter weather finally returns to the marine zones early next week.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING
As of 3 PM Friday...The latest information from NCDOT is that nrn section of Hwy 12 could reopen later today. Minor flooding could linger along the soundside northern OBX north of Pea Island through tonight and into Sat as west winds will be sustained 20-25 kt beginning tonight.
