Synopsis
A cold front will remain stalled offshore into Monday. Low
pressure will lift northeast well offshore of the southeast
coast early this week. Another cold front will move through
Wednesday night or Thursday.

Near term through tonight
As of 345 pm sun... High pressure to the north will continue to
wedge into the area with sfc front and low pres well offshore.

Drier air continues to filter in, with td's falling into the 50s
coastal plains locales. This will prohibit any more showers for
these areas. A few iso showers may continue to graze the coastal
counties overnight as cyclonic flow around offshore low continues,
though these won't amount to much in way of accums. With the
drier air filtering in, low temps will cool down into the low
60s interior, though remain warm in the low 70s at the beaches
where blustery NE breezes continue.

Short term Monday
As of 345 pm sun... Another coolish day on Monday as NE flow
continues between high to the NW and low pres well offshore.

Temps should be a couple degrees warmer as thicknesses rise more
and perhaps some more breaks in the ovc skies expected. Only a
few iso sct showers possible across mainly ERN zones in closer
proximity to the low offshore, though very little if any
measurable amounts expected. Highs in the low mid 80s.

Long term Monday night through Sunday
As of 335 pm sun... Eastern nc will remain in a weakly zonal
flow between subtropical upper ridges over the SW CONUS and
bermuda through tue, while at the surface a possible tropical
cyclone tracks northeast and offshore with minimal affects
expected over land. Mid week, amplification of the flow into an
upper trough will allow a cold front to push into our region
late Wed then stall just south Thu where it will dissipate
through fri. Upper ridging from the atlantic is forecast to
extend back over the area next weekend with a weakening cold
front possibly penetrating the ridge late in the weekend.

Minimal shower chances expected through early wed, then better
coverage of showers and thunderstorms are expected late Wed into
thu with the frontal passage. Will keep 20-30% pops fri-sun for
mainly diurnal showers and storms aided by weak frontal
boundaries near the area.

Tuesday... Only minimal (20%) chance for showers as low level ne
flow associated with high pressure prevails across the area
with the potential tropical cyclone expected to remain offshore.

Any cyclone related impacts will be water related in the form
of rough surf and strong rip currents.

Highs will be in the low to mid 80s.

Wednesday through Sunday... The aforementioned front begins to
affect the area late Wed into Thu with better coverage of
showers and thunderstorms expected. Temps should warm a bit
into the mid to upper 80s wed-thu as southerly flow briefly
develops ahead of the front. The front is forecast to stall and
dissipate near along the coast Fri into Sat with another weak
front possibly moving in Sunday. Therefore will need to keep low
end chance pops fri-sun for mainly afternoon evening activity.

Highs will mostly in the low to mid 80s and lows in the mid upr
60s interior to low 70s coast.

Aviation 20z Sunday through Friday
Short term through Mon ...

as of 2 pm sun... Return toVFR finally for most terminals as
lower atms continues to slowly mix out. Blustery NE breezes with
gusts 15-20 kt will abate to around 10 kt or less tonight. There
may be another lowering of CIGS by later this evening as more
cyclonic moisture swings around low pres that is spinning well
offshore, though don't foresee any ifr CIGS at this time. Low
stratus should mix back toVFR sct bkn CIGS Mon morning.

Long term Monday night through Friday ...

as of 335 pm sun... The best chance for showers and
thunderstorms will be late Wed into Thu as a cold front moves
through the area. Otherwise, the best chance for brief subVFR
conditions will early each morning in fog stratus and briefly in
scattered showers storms Tue and Fri afternoons and evenings.

Marine
Short term through Mon ...

as of 345 pm sun... Solid SCA conditions observed across the
marine domain as high pres ridges into the carolinas from the
north and low pres gathers well offshore producing the tightened
gradient. Seas have responded by building to 6-9 ft most areas.

The winds and seas should peak this evening, and remain in the
20-30 kt range before diminishing late, where SCA conditions
should expire for the sounds and rivers. The large seas will
continue through Mon as the gradient remains with NE winds
sustained 15-20 kt. Continued to fcst based on ec waves as wwiv
and hence nwps are too low with wave heights.

Long term Monday night through Friday ...

as of 335 pm sun... Ne flow around 15 kt is expected through tue
night. Residual 5-6 ft over the outer northern and central
waters are forecast to linger through Tue evening before
subsiding. Light SW flow around 10 kt is forecast to develop
late Wed and Wed night then shift to N NE Thu as a weak cold
front crosses the waters. NE E flow around 10 kt is forecast
fri. Seas 3-5 ft wed, then becoming 2-3 ft Thursday and fri.

Tides coastal flooding
As of 345 pm sun... Dangerous surf conditions expected to
continue through mon, with strong rip currents and dangerous
shore break. A high risk of rip currents continues north of cape
hatteras, with a moderate risk from CAPE hatteras to cape
lookout.

Minor water level rises will be possible for low lying areas
adjacent to the southern pamlico sound and neuse rivers
(including areas from downeast carteret, west towards cherry
point and oriental) through tonight, given the persistent
strong NE winds. Rises up to 1 ft above ground (1.5 ft above
normal).

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
