Low pressure system to impact Eastern NC early next week – OBX Today

According to the National Weather Service, a strong low pressure system will impact Eastern North Carolina Sunday and Monday, bringing the potential for strong winds, heavy rain, minor coastal flooding, and dangerous marine conditions.

Areas of heavy rainfall will bring the potential for localized minor flooding to poor drainage areas while strong, gusty winds could blow around light unsecured objects such as holiday decorations and cause isolated power outages.

Coastal impacts include minor coastal flooding possible (soundside and oceanside). Minor ocean overwash is also possible. Dangerous marine conditions will exist across all waterways

While the timing of the low is coming into better focus, the strength and track of the low, and thus the wind and coastal flooding threat, remain moderately uncertain at this time.
