Maria is likely to swirl just east of the North Carolina Outer Banks through midweek... which means big ocean waves and brisk breezes but small shower chances for the Cape Fear Region. A cold front will likely usher-in some lower temperatures this weekend...

TUESDAY FORECAST DETAILS: Like Monday, expect clouds... and some sun intervals. A few showers could materialize but higher rain coverage ought to stay to the east. Temperatures are likely to crest in the lower to mid 80s amid feisty north breezes of 15 mph and gusts of 25+ mph.

EXTENDED FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS: Low daily shower chances will continue into the weekend. For Wednesday and Thursday, expect highs in the toasty upper 80s to even lower 90s. A cooler pattern of highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s appears more likely by the weekend...

SURF AND MARINE IMPACTS: Through at least midweek... expect breaking waves of mainly between 5 to 10 feet with some localized 10 to 15-foot sets! The rip current risk will remain high. Very rough seas should inspire small crafts to stay in port.

TROPICS: For more details on Hurricanes Maria and Lee, CLICK HERE. Since September is still the peak of hurricane season, you ought to have a family storm survival kit and plan... and for details on that, CLICK HERE.
