Severe Weather Possible Sunday
Night into Monday Morning

A potent storm system is forecast to move through eastern North Carolina starting late Sunday night or early Monday morning, per a Thursday update from the National Weather Service Newport / Morehead City office.

The timing may change over the weekend, but residents and visitors are urged to be prepared for the possibility of damaging wind gusts, isolated tornadoes, and locally heavy downpours.

Sustained winds in the 25-30 mph range are currently forecast for Hatteras and Ocracoke Islands late Sunday and early Monday morning.

With the timing of storm system, with the bulk of the severe weather occurring late at night, the public should ensure that they have a way to receive warnings as needed, such as a NOAA Weather Radio.  For more information on the weekend’s forecast, visit https://www.facebook.com/NWSMoreheadCity/.
