Wind speeds will decrease to about 15-25mph by midday and 10-20mph this afternoon. Gusts could still be at 30mph.
The strong winds helped to cause some minor flooding across the OBX. This water came up and flooded from the sound side of the OBX. The sound side flooding should decrease this afternoon.
We have a chance to see some sunshine this afternoon. High temperatures will be near 83 degrees.
