Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

***A Coastal Flood Advisory and a High Surf Advisory are in effect for the Outer Banks of Dare County until 8 PM Wednesday. A High Surf Advisory means that high surf will produce localized beach erosion and dangerous swimming conditions. A Coastal Flood Advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.

Much warmer… Highs will warm into the low 70s this afternoon, about 20 degrees warmer than yesterday. We will see a mix of sun and clouds again today. A stray shower is possible but most areas will stay dry. Winds will pick up a bit this afternoon, southwest at 5 to 15 mph.

Expect partly to mostly cloudy skies tonight with a stray shower possible. Lows will only drop into the mid 50s overnight.

Highs will climb to near 80 on Thursday, almost 20 degrees above normal for this time of year. We will see partly cloudy skies with a slim chance for a shower. Winds will pick up tomorrow, southwest at 10 to 15 with gusts to 25 mph.

Highs will slip into the mid 70s on Friday with more clouds and rain. Expect mostly cloudy skies, rain showers, and the possibility of thunderstorms mixing in. Sunshine will return for the weekend with highs in the 60s.

Today: Mix of Clouds, Warmer. Highs in the low 70s. Winds: SW 5-15

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy. Lows in the mid 50s. Winds: SW 5-10

Tomorrow: Partly Cloudy, Breezy. Highs near 80. Winds: SW 10-15G25
