A messy start to the work week… An area of low pressure continues to churn off the NC coast. Clouds, showers, wind, and flooding remain over the area. Expect mostly cloudy skies again today with scattered showers and drizzle. Persistent northeast winds will continue at 10 to 20 with gusts to near 30 mph. Expect minor to moderate level flooding during times of high today this afternoon. Highs will struggle to reach the mid 70s today.

Clouds will continue for Tuesday with a few showers and drizzle. Winds will back down slightly, NNE at 10 to 15 mph. We could still see some minor level tidal flooding. Highs will only reach the mid 70s.

Expect more sunshine and a warmup to end the work week. Highs will climb to the upper 70s on Wednesday, low 80s on Thursday, and mid 80s on Friday. We will see mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies with low rain chances and light winds.

Tropical Update
A tropical wave located about 350 miles ESE of the Windward Islands continues to produce disorganized cloudiness and thunderstorms. Some slow development is possible during the next day or two while the system moves WNW at about 15 mph toward the Lesser Antilles. Strong upper-level winds are expected to limit further development.
* Formation chance through 48 hours: Low (20%)
* Formation chance through 5 days: Low (20%)

Shower and thunderstorm activity associated with another tropical wave located over the eastern Caribbean Sea has decreased since yesterday. Environmental conditions are not expected to support development of this system for the next day or two. However, some gradual development is possible beginning on Wednesday when the system nears the southeastern Bahamas.
* Formation chance through 48 hours: Low (0%)
* Formation chance through 5 days: Low (20%)
