Weather Authority Forecast


Sunny weather continues through Sunday....

Drier air has finally moved into eastern Carolina. Mostly clear skies can be expected Sunday with winds shifting from the north to the southeast through the day. Highs will reach the middle to upper 80s Sunday afternoon before showers return to the East on Monday.

The beaches will see partly to mostly sunny skies. Afternoon highs will reach the middle 80s, with easterly winds at 10 to 20 mph. Rough surf and a rip current threat could impact some coastal communities, especially north of Cape Hatteras along the Outer Banks.

Showers return on Monday but will only stick around for a day as Tuesday looks mostly dry. Wednesday through Friday will be damp as the remnants of Erika slowly approach from the south.

Tropical Update:

Erika is now a remnant low and has a low chance of reforming over the next few days. It is still expected to bring rain and gusty winds to Florida, but will not do so as a tropical storm.

The remnants of Erika will move along the same general path, entering the Gulf of Mexico by Monday and approaching the Florida panhandle early Wednesday morning. Eastern Carolina could see some increased rain activity by Friday, but the system will not cause severe weather conditions here in the East.

Tropical Storm Fred has formed off the coast of African, becoming the sixth named storm of the 2015 hurricane season.

As of 8 am Sunday, Fred had sustained winds of 40 mph with gusts up to 46 mph. It is moving to the northwest towards the Cape Verde Islands at 12 mph. It will impact the Island chain by Monday afternoon, then turn westerly.

Fred is currently over 4000 miles from the Carolina coast. It is still unclear if Fred will be able to make it across the Atlantic, but if it does, we won't feel any of the impacts until the second week of September.


Sunday: Mostly sunny skies. Highs in the mid to upper 80s with winds out of the east to southeast at 6 to 12 mph.

Sunday Night: Mostly clear with increasing clouds later on. Lows in the upper 60s with winds from the south at 2 to 5 mph.
