The Rain Is Almost OverMarch 7th, 2014 at 5:07 pm by Jeff Edmondson WAVY under Weather
It has been a soggy day across Hampton Roads, but this storm is still on track to get out of our area tonight.
We still may see scattered showers across Hampton Roads tonight until midnight. Rain totals will be near 0.75″ to 1.5″.
The wind is also going to ease a bit overnight. Wind gusts have been as high as 47mph in Virginia Beach and Elizabeth City today. In Manteo a 49mph wind gust was observed today. Gusts have been around 35-40mph for the rest of our area today. Tonight the wind speed will slowly decrease as the storms moves away from our area.
With the strong winds, there will be the potential for minor tidal flooding across the Southside and North Carolina overnight during the next high tide. Sewells Point is a good benchmark for Southside Hampton Roads.
Here is the forecast for Duck Pier, North Carolina
Tomorrow we will have less wind and also more sunshine! High temperatures will climb to near 60 degrees in the afternoon.
Stay Dry/Warm Tonight.
