Forecast Discussion: The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch from 8am Tuesday to 8pm Thursday for much of Eastern North Carolina. Tuesday begins a period of wet weather with cooler highs, consistently about ten degrees below the average. Tuesday morning looks rain-free, but later on, the rain increases from south to north. Daily rain chances will persist with 2 to 4 inches possible for the week total. Even higher amounts may occur near the coast.

Since some flooding will be possible this week, we are declaring late Tuesday a First Alert Weather Day. Stay aware of the latest weather conditions as flash flooding may be possible from some of the downpours. Be sure to have the WITN Weather App on your mobile device and check it often for updates.
