A low pressure system will bring just enough moisture for some chances for light showers Wednesday and Thursday. Otherwise, dry weather - along with cool temperatures - should remain the rule for the remainder of the week.
TUESDAY NIGHT FORECAST: Expect mostly clear skies and light east or north breezes. Temperatures will dip to late-night lows mainly in the low and mid 50s inland and upper 50s and low 60s for the beaches.
WEDNESDAY FORECAST: Expect variable clouds. Chances for light rain showers will grow from 0 - 10% early to near 20% late. Temperatures will grow to afternoon highs mainly in the mid and upper 70s.
LATE-WEEK FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS: Clouds and the chance for light showers will linger on Thursday but rain chances will trend toward 0% for Thursday night and Friday. Daily high temperatures in the 70s will stay likely.
WEEKEND FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS: A storm system could develop east of Hatteras, but at present models show it too far east of southeastern North Carolina to bring significant impacts. So, we'll keep a mostly dry forecast in-place with daily highs in the 70s to around 80 likely.
TROPICAL AREAS OF INTEREST: The final week of September is a traditionally active week for tropical systems in the Atlantic Basin. However, no tropical storms are expected to develop in the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, or Caribbean Sea in the next 3 to 5 days.
