Well, at least for half of the weekend we are looking sunny. An area of high pressure is in control off to our north today. That will keep us with a fresh northeast breeze at around 10-15mph.
The dry air should keep our skies mostly clear this afternoon. The OBX still has a chance to see more cloud cover since you will be a bit closer to the offshore area of low pressure.
Overall, we are looking sunny and dry for today. Tomorrow may be a bit different, more cloud cover will be the theme. Temperatures should be in the mid to upper 70s on Sunday. Our weekend is looking dry, into next week Tuesday and Wednesday another coastal storm may bring us rain and wind. Stay tuned for updates.
No organized storms exist in the Atlantic Ocean, the tropics remain quiet.
The northeast windswell will continue for the next week. Sunday could be more fun since our northeast winds are expected to die down a bit.
That coastal storm next week may boost our waves in the 4-6ft range…stay tuned!
