Chilly Winds Monday; Cool Air Sticking Around

By  | 

As we head into the last week of March our highs typically should be reaching the upper 60s. We will continue to run well below that through out the week.

Lots of clouds, along with breezy conditions will keep the highs from getting much over 50° both Monday and Tuesday. With winds gusting to 30 mph on Monday, the wind chills will stay in the 40s all day.

Sunshine returns on Wednesday, but afternoon highs will only make the mid 50s through late week with overnight lows dipping into the mid 30s.

We should finally close in on 60° on Saturday with low 60s likely for Easter Sunday under mostly sunny skies. Easter sunrise will occur between 6:50 and 7:00 am with temps around 40°.

WIND ADVISORY: A wind advisory will be in effect for the Outer Banks from 11:00 am Monday through 5:00 am Tuesday. Westerly winds will gust between 30 and 40 mph at times.

COASTAL FLOOD ADVISORY: A coastal flood advisory will be in effect for the Outer Banks from 8:00 am Monday through 5:00 am Tuesday. Soundside flooding will be possible with water level rises of 2 to 3 feet above normal, especially around high tide around sunrise and sunset.

LOW WATER ADVISORY: A low water advisory is in effect for the Pamlico Sound through 5:00 am Tuesday. Strong west winds on Monday will bring abnormally low water levels to portions of the Pamlico River and western portions of the sound. Mariners should use extreme caution in typically low water areas.
