FORECAST DISCUSSION

Tropical Depression 8 approaches the coast Tuesday...

Tuesday
Tropical Depression #8 will bring gusty winds and periods of rain to the Outer Banks, Pamlico Sound, and Carteret county. Inland areas will see isolated showers with winds of 10 to 20 mph. Coastal winds will run 20 to 35+ mph.

Wednesday
Skies will gradually clear through the day as the tropical system exits the area, taking our rain chances with it. Temps will be in the upper 80s with overnight lows in the low 70s. Humidity levels will stay consistent, keeping muggy air over the east through the first half of the week.

Thursday, Friday & The Weekend
After a muggy and wet start to the week, a cold front will finally cross the area Thursday evening. While this front will bring a pretty decent shot of rain to the region, the dry air behind the front will help keep the weekend mostly sunny and mild. However, we'll be watching the track of Tropical Depression 9 closely.

The current track of T.D. 9 is nearly 100 miles off the Crystal Coast Friday and is expected to head further out to sea on Saturday. The depression will likely be a tropical storm as it tracks offshore of the southeast coast. The track could shift closer to our coast if the cold front fails to completely clear the Outer Banks. We'll be keeping a close eye on it.

Highs will be dropping into the low to mid 80s with overnight lows in the mid to low 60s. Dew points will also take a dive after the front passes, making Friday, Saturday and Sunday very comfortable, so long as the Depression stays clear of the coast.

TROPICAL UPDATE

Tropical Depression 9 finally formed early Sunday evening and will slowly gain strength as it passes by the southern tip of Florida and continues into the Gulf of Mexico on Monday. It will stay in the Gulf through Tuesday before turning northeast by Wednesday and moving over northern Florida. The official track moves the storm off the coast of Florida Thursday and keeps the storm off the coast of North Carolina on Friday as a tropical storm. The track continues well out to sea on Saturday. The current track would keep most of the impacts off the coast, but the storm will have to be watched closely in case the track shifts closer to the Crystal Coast.

Gaston has weakened into a category 2 hurricane, Dropping it from major hurricane status. Gaston had winds of 105 mph and was moving to the north-northeast on Monday evening. The storm is expected to continue to work its way northeastward over the deep Atlantic while weakening through the week.

FORECAST

Tuesday: Partly cloudy and breezy with scattered showers, especially along the coast. Winds will be out of the northeast at 10 to 20 inland, 20 to 35+ along the coast. Rain chance: 40%.

Tuesday Night: Mostly cloudy with heavy rain possible along the coast. Winds will be out of the northeast at 15 to 25 on the Outer Banks. Rain chance: 40%

Wednesday: Rain exiting and winds weakening. Partly cloudy afternoon with highs in the upper 80s. Rain chance: 20%.

BOATING FORECAST
