Soundside flooding throughout Hatteras and
Ocracoke Islands and ocean overwash, mainly north of Cape Hatteras,
will be possible through the weekend. The duration and strength of
NW/N/NE winds will ultimately determine if or when coastal flooding
could become an issue for soundside portions of the Outer Banks.
As of Wednesday morning, wind guests of 40-45 mph
and seas up to 10-17 feet are forecast. The strong winds will develop
by early Friday morning, and will continue into Sunday.
