Nice…For Now!March 11th, 2013 at 7:36 am by Jeremy Wheeler under Weather
We had a great weekend with a lot of sunshine. There were a few problems with overwash on the Outer Banks. Also, it stayed a little cool along the beaches with easterly winds. But overall it was great. Today we are expecting a nice southerly breeze (10-15mph). This will help to boost the high temps into the 60s for just about everybody. High pressure will also provide some sunshine, but clouds will try to increase from the west.
The rain showers will move in tonight ahead of the cold front. Tomorrow we’ll see rain showers on and off for most of the day. It should be light to moderate, but it is possible that we could sneak in a couple of thunderstorms tomorrow afternoon. That would give us a few spots of heavier showers. We expect a little more than a half inch of rain, but several cities will see up to an inch. At least it will stay warm tomorrow with highs in the low/mid 60s.
The cooler weather will steadily seep in Wednesday into Thursday. In fact, we will see highs back in the upper 40s again by Thursday. We’ll try to warm things up by the weekend (mid 50s), but a back door cold front may cool things down again on Sunday.
Finally, the ocean should be settling down a little bit today. The tides should be going down as well. So we should be good in that regard. There shouldn’t be as much overwash over the Outer Banks, but it should be at a minimum if it hasn’t stopped already.
