First Alert Weather Day Friday: Flood Advisories for multiple counties through evening
Heavy downpours totaling 1-3″ possible in under 12 hours for parts of Eastern North Carolina
GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - The steady rain we’ve seen today will gradually diminish overnight tonight. A Coastal Flood Advisory is in effect for Carteret, Craven and Pamlico counties until 8:30 p.m. We’ve seen well over an inch of rain come down along the coast with some areas reporting totals ranging between 1-3″. Radar estimates indicate Wilmington has seen over 7″ come down in just 24 hours. An additional 0.5-1.0″ is expected to fall over areas near the Sounds.
The rain will become scattered to isolated for communities along and west of Highway 17 as we approach midnight. Lingering showers will keep the Outer Banks wet on Saturday while the rest of the East sees cloud cover fade away. Storms will arrive by Sunday morning, throwing down more rain on top of already soaked soil.
