Sunday Night Impacts: Rain continues, temps fall and winds stay strong

By  | 

The storm has moved into the East and while it provided snow for some early this morning, rain has since taken over and will continue to fall overnight.

Wet and windy conditions will continue through the night. Winds will blow at 10 to 20 mph out of the north-northeast. With rain showers expected to last into Monday, the combination of wind and rain could lead to isolated power outages for some.

Rainfall totals for this weekend range between 1 to 2 inches and more is on the way tonight and tomorrow. An additional half inch to inch will be possible Monday before the system finally pulls away from the coast.

*Gale Warning Through Monday*

A coastal flood warning has been issued for Craven, Pamlico and Carteret counties until 7 a.m. Monday morning. Water levels will rise 3 to 5 feet above normal, potentially flooding low lying and flood prone areas. Rain showers will last longer along the coast. A weak secondary low will keep showers in the forecast for area beaches through Tuesday. Rainfall totals from Saturday through Tuesday should range between 4 to 5 inches.
