Detailed Forecast


Synopsis: Weak low pressure centered about 500 miles east of Jacksonville late this morning will move northwestward and will approach the North Carolina Outer Banks by late Tuesday and early Wednesday. Atlantic ridging will build to the south of our waters towards midweek as a frontal boundary remains stalled well to the northwest of our region, resulting in a brief period of prevailing offshore winds. High pressure will then build over the Carolinas this weekend, with onshore winds resuming by the upcoming weekend.
