Cloudy and cool air will dominate the weather across eastern Carolina though Wednesday.
An area of low pressure off the southeast coast will produce rain, with the heaviest amounts near the coast where one to two additional inches may fall by Wednesday evening. Winds will continue to blow at 15 to 25 mph out of the northeast through the day, with temps struggling to get above the low 60s.
A Coastal Flood Advisory will remain in effect until 8:00 pm Wednesday along the Outer Banks as well as counties along the Pamlico Sound. Water level rise of 1 to 2 feet will be possible along the Outer Banks as well as communities along the southern Pamlico Sound and up into the lower Neuse River.
A Gale Warning will remain in effect for coastal areas until 8pm from Ocracoke northward.
A Small Craft Advisory will remain in effect through tomorrow morning for the Sounds and locations south of Ocracoke.
The coastal storm will slowly pull away Thursday into Friday with a few lingering showers Thursday, followed by peaks of sunshine by Friday. By the weekend we should be looking pretty good with mostly to partly cloudy skies and highs in the low to mid 70s.
