Synopsis
High pressure offshore will extend west into eastern north carolina
through mid week as a weak trough of low pressure lingers well inland.

A cold front will slowly approach the area late this week and
then cross the area next weekend.

Near term overnight
As of 945 pm mon... An area of very light showers continues near
highway 17 this evening, as earlier convection has dissipated across
the area. Slightly cooler across the area early this evening
courtesy of convection and associated outflow boundaries.

The area will remain between a well established bermuda ridge
offshore and developing troughing inland. Inland areas will
decouple shortly after sunset while coastal areas see persistent
light southwest winds as the high ridges strongly to our south.

Dry conditions are expected, though a stray shower or two over
the beaches cant be completely ruled out. Patchy fog is possible
for locations that decouple and can remain clear enough for
efficient radiational cooling. Though higher clouds from earlier
convection may limit cooling and possible fog. Lows will be
several degrees above normal as a warm and humid airmass remains
in place.

Short term 6 am Tuesday morning through 6 pm Tuesday
As of 330 pm mon... High pressure ridging into the area from the
east and south will dominate once again on Tuesday. Troughing
inland will be a bit stronger, and a bit more storm coverage
than today is possible. Still, it will overall be a similar day
to today with isolated to scattered convection away from the
beaches and the potential for a few strong storms producing
gusty winds. Temps will be a degree or two cooler than today,
owing primarily to increased cirrus coverage.

Long term Tuesday night through Monday
As of 245 am mon... High pressure will extend over the area
through Thursday with only scattered thunderstorms expected.

Then, a slow moving cold front will approach from the north late
in the week, and should eventually cross the area this weekend,
which would lead to another period of unsettled weather.

Tuesday night through Thursday... Scattered afternoon
thunderstorms are expected through Thursday with a weak lee
trough forming over central nc, and continued possible
convective initiation along the sea breeze each day. Very little
wind shear will keep convection disorganized. High temps will
be slightly above average through this period, with readings in
the low 90s inland and the mid to upper 80s along the coast.

Warm and humid nights will continue.

Friday through Sunday... The base of an upper level trough will
swing into the southern appalachians Friday, as a cold front
drops south through virginia. Precip chances will be increasing
Friday as storms fire along and south of the front in a hot and
humid airmass.

Thereafter guidance diverges, with the latest run of the gfs
aggressively pushing the front south of the region on Friday
before stalling (and then pushing back north late in the
weekend), whereas the latest ECMWF develops an area of low
pressure along the front Friday in southern va which halts the
progression of the front southward until later in the weekend
when the front moves eastward through the area. Will keep
generally 40-50% pops for Friday and the weekend, and hope for
some better model consensus in the next cycle.

Aviation 02z Tuesday through Saturday
Short term through Tuesday ...

as of 945 pm mon...VFR currently across the terminals as earlier
convection has dissipated. Patchy MVFR fog is possible again
early Tue morning, given the similar airmass. Scattered showers
and storms expected again Tue afternoon.

Long term Tuesday night through Saturday ...

as of 255 am mon... MostlyVFR conditions this week, with
scattered convection expected during the afternoons and
evenings. Patchy fog also possible in the early mornings with
high dewpoints and rather light winds.

Marine
Short term through Tuesday ...

as of 945 pm mon... Latest obs show wsw SW winds 10-15 kt with
seas 2-3 ft. Bermuda high pressure ridging south of the area
will remain in control. Light to moderate southeast winds
prevail, though winds may occasionally become more west-
southwest as the strength of the ridging to the south subtly
varies. Seas around 2-4 ft prevail in mainly locally generated
windswell.

Long term Tuesday night through Saturday ...

as of 255 am mon... Decent boating conditions are expected for
most of the upcoming week. Winds will be mostly SW 10-15 through
Wednesday afternoon, before increasing to ssw 15-20 kts
Wednesday evening through Friday morning. Seas will be 2-4 ft
through Wednesday, and then increase to 3-5 ft early Wednesday
night. Conditions Wednesday night through Thursday night will
likely be close to small craft over most of the coastal waters,
with wind gusts near 25 kts and seas around 5 feet.

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.
