Latest Weather Alerts: ALERTS

Now that it's the first of April, let's see how we fared temperature-wise in March. In Norfolk, we had an average temperature of 57.0 degrees, making this March the 4th warmest on record. The #1 warmest March was back in 1945 with an average temperature of 59.5 degrees. Elizabeth City was also the 4th warmest on record with an average temperature of 58.0 degrees. The warmest March on record was also in 1945, with an average temperature of 61.5 degrees.

Drier air will continue to move in this evening with well-below normal temperatures (unfortunately, not an April Fool's joke). It will still be on the breezy side with winds out of the north around 20 and gusts up to 30 mph. Minor tidal flooding will be possible at times of high tide through Thursday. High tide at Sewells Point is at 4 PM today. We will see another high tide at 4 AM and 5 PM on Thursday. It will be chilly overnight with lows in the low 40s.

Sunshine returns as an area of high pressure builds in for Thursday and Friday. Temperatures will be just shy of normal, with highs in the upper 50s and low 60s. It will still be on the breezy side.

Conditions are looking mostly dry for the weekend, with highs in the low 60s on Saturday and mid 60s on Sunday.

The warming trend will continue into Monday, with highs warming to the low 70s. Rain chances increase on Tuesday.
