**Gale Warning in effect for the lower Chesapeake Bay, the entire coastal waters, and Currituck

Rain will spread from the southwest to the northeast. Heavy rain is likely across the viewing area which could cause flooding and ponding on the roadways. 1 to 3 inches of rain is possible, with some locally higher amounts. Gusty winds along the coast could lead to downed trees and power outages. Winds will be out of the east and northeast at 15-20 mph, with gusts 30-40 mph possible. Tidal flooding will be possible at times of high tide. High tide at Sewells Point is 2 PM. If you live in an area that is prone to tidal flooding, make sure you prepare. An isolated severe storm is not out of the question during the afternoon. The Storm Prediction Center has southern portions of the Albemarle at a level 1 for severe weather. The biggest threat will be damaging wind gusts. The area of low pressure will move off the coast Sunday night with drier air moving in.

Monday is looking dry with a mix of sun and clouds and highs in the mid and upper 60s. A cold front will move through on Tuesday bringing a chance for showers. Temperatures will be milder with highs in the mid 70s. This will be the warmest day of the week.
