Removed from the ocean impacts of Jose, inland areas will see decreasing cloud cover and breezy conditions. Winds will be from the northeast at 10 to 20 mph. Highs in the afternoon will reach the mid 80s with overnight lows falling to the upper 60s. Coastal rain will be possible, but at this point, rainfall totals should not exceed 0.10" inland with isolated totals near 0.50" on the Outer Banks. Direct impacts from Jose will be felt along our beaches through Tuesday as the storm makes it's closest approach to eastern Carolina. Winds will be strongest along the Outer Banks, potentially seeing a few tropical storm force gusts Tuesday morning. Wave heights will range between 4'-6' along the Crystal Coast and 7'-11' along the Outer Banks.
