Confidence continues to increase that Eastern NC will experience some impacts from the remnants of Tropical Cyclone Sally beginning tomorrow and indirectly extending into next week.
In addition to the minor coastal flooding impacts we've messaged for the past several days, we are forecasting:
- Heavy rain with possible flash flooding tomorrow and Friday
- A slight severe weather, with the main threats being a few damaging wind gusts and isolated tornadoes especially late tomorrow into Friday.
- Prolonged strong northeasterly winds behind the remnants of Sally, leading to possible coastal flooding, large waves, dangerous rip currents, and potentially significant beach erosion and ocean overwash.
If you have any questions you can always call the office at 252 223 5737 EXT 6.
