With high pressure building to the west, our skies will be mostly sunny over the next few days. Temps will benefit from the increased sunshine, jumping to the upper 70s to near 80 Thursday through Friday. Less wind will help water levels continue to fall along the coastal regions.
A front will push across the area on Saturday, bringing a bit of a rain back to the region. There will be a slight risk for showers after midnight on Friday. The best chances will occur during the day on Saturday, with a 30% to 40% risk at any location across the the area. The weekend will be noticeably cooler due to the passing front, with highs maxing out in the lower 70s.
A coastal flood advisory will remain in effect through 6pm Wednesday for Dare, Hyde, Carteret, Onslow, Beaufort and Pamlico counties. Water levels of 2 to 3 feet above normal will still be possible for a few areas, but levels will continue to slowly trend downward late Wednesday.
Tropical Storm Joaquin is moving deeper into the north Atlantic with winds of 70 mph. The storm will continue to move towards Europe.
