Synopsis
A trough of low pressure will persist across the area through
Thursday. A cold front moves across the area Thursday night,
then stalls along the virginia-north carolina border Friday
before pushing south into the carolinas Saturday. High pressure
builds into the area for the later half of the weekend.

Near term today and tonight
As of 330 am edt Wednesday...

showers continues to slowly disspiate along the coast erly this
morning along a weak sfc trof. Meanwhile, addntl shwrs moving
nne from a secondary trof across the carolinas.

Expect another hot humid day with sct convection dvlpng due to the
s W lifting NE from the carolinas and sfc trof east of the mts. Spc
has the NRN half of the local area in a marginal svr risk with the
main threat being strong to damaging wind gusts. Like yesterday, any
storm will be capable of producing hvy downpours and freq lightning.

Skies avg pt sunny. Maintained chc pops. Highs upr 80s-lwr 90s. Sw
winds 10-15 mph.

Sct convection continues thru 06z tonite then dissipates. Otw, pt
cldy warm humid. Lows 70-75.

Short term Thursday through Friday night
As of 330 am edt Wednesday...

will keep a persistant forecast going thurs for mainly diurnal
convection firing up along the sfc trof during the aftrn eve ahead
of the cold front apprchg from the nw. Maintained chc pops (30-50%
highest west). Ahead of it, enuf heating to push temps back up into
the low-mid 90s before any convection dvlps. Heat index values arnd
100 degrees.

Models continue to slow the southern movement of the cold front
thurs nite, now to a position across central va by 12z fri. Kept chc
pops except low end likely across the ERN shore as this bndry slowly
sags south thurs nite. Mstly cldy with lows in the 70s.

Interesting setup Fri fri nite as the front is progged to stall near
the va nc border Fri aftrn with a few waves of low pressure progged
to move east on it Fri nite. This will enhance the pcpn threat
especially across the SRN half of the fa. Have increased pops to
high end likely for now. Could be looking at some training storms
leading to some potential flooding issues. Highs Fri in the 80s.

Rain tapers off (but does not end after midnight) Fri nite. Lows
mid 60s-lwr 70s. QPF 1-2 inches across the SRN half of the fa. Wpc
has us in a marginal day 2 ero risk.

Long term Saturday through Tuesday
As of 330 am edt Wednesday...

low pressure moves east into the vacapes erly sat. The movement
of the low combined with high pressure building in from the nw
will allow the front to sink south into SRN nc Sat aftrn. Enough
lingering moisture behind this bndry to keep chc pops going thru
the day sat. More clouds south with some pt sunny skies north by
the aftrn. Much cooler with highs ur 70s-lwr 80s.

Shower TSTM chances continue Sun over S SW portions of the cwa
as ridging aloft sets up off the sc ga coast and our region goes
under moist wsw-sw flow aloft while sfc ridging builds into the
area. Have 30-40% pops for SRN va NE nc. Continued chances for
mainly aftn-evening showers tstms early next week as weak troughing
tries to re-establish itself from the great lakes to the deep south
and deep layer moisture continues to stream into the region from
the sw.

Highs mainly in the low-mid 80s through Mon with lows in the
60s (except for some low 70s in coastal SE va NE nc). Slightly
warmer by next Tuesday with highs mainly in the mid 80s.

Aviation 07z Wednesday through Sunday
As of 140 am edt Wednesday...

sct convection conts to pop up east of i95 erly this morning,
but not affecting any TAF site attm. Latest data shows this
activity dissipates over the next few hrs, so decided to keep
thunder out of any TAF site.

Vfr conditions should prevail through the forecast period.

The exception will be for some ptchy br arnd sunrise in areas
that received rain last nite and for yet anther day of late
aftrn eve convection that fires up along the lee trof. Weak low
pressure across nc may also fire up sct shwrs across sern taf
sites after sunrise. SW winds 10-15 kts this aftrn.

Outlook...

more of the same Thursday as addntl late day eve convection
dvlps along the lee trof. A cold front slowly moves across the
local area thurs nite then stalls across nc fri. Expct sct to
numerous shras and tstms are anticipated W (and lingering
behind into sat) that cold frontal passage.

Marine
As of 330 am edt Wednesday...

small craft advisories are now in effect for the northern coastal
waters, ches bay, and currituck sound this afternoon into Thursday
morning. Current observations show SW winds of around 10 to 15 knots
over the waters with seas of 2 to 3 feet and waves in the bay of 1
to 2 feet. Expect winds to steadily increase through this afternoon
and evening as a cold front approaches the region from the west.

Winds become S to SW at around 15 to 20 knots late this afternoon
into tonight with gusts of 20 to 25 knots. Latest wind probability
guidance continues to highlight the northern coastal waters and ches
bay for at least low end SCA conditions through tonight, thus a sca
is now in effect beginning later this afternoon. Seas will also be
on the increase through the day, building to 4 to 5 feet across the
north by tonight. Winds decrease below SCA levels Thursday morning
as the pressure gradient relaxes. The aforementioned cold front
slowly drops south across the waters early Friday before likely
hanging up near or just south of the va nc border. Winds turn to the
n NW behind the front. The front eventually drops south of the
region by Saturday with onshore flow anticipated through the
weekend.

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.
