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 approach the area
mid to late week.

Near term today
As of 650 am sun... Latest analysis shows front stalled off the
se coast, with 1030 mb high pressure centered over the NE us
extending into the mid-atlantic and SE us, resulting in a
cad wedge pattern across the carolinas. Latest radar imagery
shows scattered light showers across the area this morning. The
upper level trough will continue to shift eastward today as
drier air continues to filter into the mid and upper levels.

Still some low level moisture which supports isolated to widely
scattered showers, best chances this morning, then transitioning
towards the coast late morning and afternoon. Clouds may be
tough to scour out until late in the day from NW to SE with cad
pattern. Temps will continue to be pleasant and comfortable for
august standards. Low level thickness values and NE winds
support highs in the upper 70s to low 80s, and dewpoints
generally 65-70 deg. Breezy along the coast today, with NE wind
gusts 25-30 mph, as gradient tightens between high to the north
and front to the south.

Short term tonight
As of 240 am sun... High pressure to the north will continue to
wedge into the area with sfc front stalled off the coast. Drier
air continues to filter in, and while could see a few showers
along the coast expect most of the area to remain dry. Pleasant
temps with lows dropping into the low mid 60s inland and upper
60s to low 70s along the coast.

Long term Monday through Saturday
As of 340 am sun... A drier conditions start at the beginning of
the work-week, then a cold front will approach the area from
the west midweek and push through Thursday resulting in showers
and thunderstorms. Afterward, high pressure builds in leading to
drier weather.

Monday through Wednesday... A weak mid upper level ridging will
be placed over the southeast and mid-atlantic region, while a
shortwave trough is over the ms tn oh valley. At the sfc,
conditions will be drier as high pressure continues to wedge
into the carolinas from the north, while a potential tropical
system to the SE of enc coast. The previous runs of the ecwmf
have been consistent with the potential tropical system to
remain well offshore, while the cmc, ukmet, and spaghetti models
continues to support the ecwmf output. Most of the impacts will
be related to the water in the form of rough surf and strong
rip currents.

The previous mentioned shortwave trough weakens or somewhat gets
absorbed with a broad trough along the northern stream as it approaches
the carolinas Tuesday. Remaining energy from the shortwave is
forecasted to trigger some showers Tuesday afternoon and showers
and thunderstorms for Wednesday. Expect highs 80-85 degree
range on Monday, then temps will moderate a bit more into the
mid to possibly some upper 80s by Wednesday. Overnight lows will
range in the upper 60s to low 70s inland and mid 70's along the
outer banks.

Thursday through Saturday... Models diverge at this point with
the timing of the cold front and beyond. The ECMWF continues to
be consistent with the past few runs with the front pushing
through enc by Thursday morning, while the GFS is running aoa
24-hours behind. Afterward there is some indication the frontal
boundary lifts north or becomes hung up near the coast, and some
showers develop with increasing fgen, so will keep slight to
chance pops. Trended closer with the ECMWF due to it's
consistency. Expect highs in the mid upper 80s and lows in the
mid upr 60s interior to low 70s coast.

Aviation 10z Sunday through Thursday
Short term through tonight ...

as of 650 am sun... Widespread ifr and lifr ceilings across the
terminals early this morning. CIGS shld slowly lift and
eventually begin to sct out as drier air works in withVFR
expected in the aftn. NE wind gusts 20-25 kt expected this
afternoon.

Long term Monday through Thursday ...

as of 340 am sun... A quasi-stationary boundary will well south
of the area through midweek... Leading to a drier trends. Still
can see occasional sub-vfr in regards to lower ceilings due to
lingering low level moisture. An cold front will approach the
area Wednesday leading to additional showers and thunderstorms.

Cold front is expected to push through Thursday.

Marine
Short term through tonight ...

as of 650 am sun... SCA conditions developing quickly across the
waters early this morning. Latest buoy obs indicate nne ne
winds 15-25 kt, and seas 7-10 ft north of hatteras and 3-5 ft
south. Moderate to strong NE winds and rough seas expected today
and tonight. Scas continue for the coastal waters, sounds and
neuse bay rivers into tonight. The gradient will continue to
strengthen today between high pressure to the north and front to
the south, as area of stronger winds expands southward. Ne
winds increase to 20-25 kt with gusts to 30 kt and seas building
to 5-10 ft, highest north of hatteras. Leaned towards ec waves
with nwps and wavewatch several feet underdone north of hatteras
this morning. Strong NE winds will continue tonight with seas
remaining above 6 ft.

Long term Monday through Thursday ...

as of 340 am sun... Wind gradient will relax, though seas will
remain elevated due to the potential tropical system bringing
higher seas and swell. Expected NE winds 15-20 knots Monday,
becoming 10-15 Tuesday, while seas will be 4-6 ft across all
coastal waters and gradually subsiding from south to north
Tuesday. A return flow begins Wed with winds 10 knots or less
ahead of the approaching cold front. Then winds will become
northerly after the frontal passage. Seas 3-5 ft wed, becoming
2-3 ft Thursday.

Tides coastal flooding
As of 650 am sun... Dangerous surf conditions expected north of
cape hatteras today, 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 0.5 ft above ground (1 ft above
normal) possible.

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.
