FORECAST DISCUSSION

The cold front will make its final push off our coast by midday. Highs will struggle to reach the mid 80s as cloud cover stays thick through morning hours. The average high this time of year is in the upper 80s and temperatures will be well below that on Thursday. A few light showers will be possible under the cloud deck, with skies starting to clear later in the day.

Tropics
Harvey has redeveloped into a tropical depression and continues to move northwestward over the southern Gulf of Mexico. The storm is expected to regain tropical storm strength late Wednesday. We will continue to monitor the system as it is now forecast to impact Texas late in the week. Hurricane Watches are in effect for a portion of the Texas coast.

A tropical wave located over south Florida has a low chance (30%) of becoming the next named storm. While the system could track off the southeast coast of the U.S., the strength of the system should be minimal. If we do see any impacts here in eastern Carolina, we won't feel them until next week.

The next 2 names after Harvey are Irma and Jose.

FORECAST:

Thursday: Mostly cloudy and cooler with some lingering showers mainly near the coast. Highs in the middle to low 80s. Northwest winds 7 to 15 mph. Rain chance: 40%.

BOATING FORECAST:

Winds will blow out of the southwest at 10 to 15 knots Wednesday. Offshore swells will run from 3 to 5 feet. Waves heights will run around 1 foot on the Albemarle and Pamlico Sounds.
