This Morning- Rain early on for New Hanover an Pender Counties; dry to the west. Sustained winds out of the N at 15-30 mph (with a few gusts over 45 mph). Note: High tide at 7am will cause high water and coastal flooding along the coast in flood prone areas.

Tonight – Partly cloudy, with winds out of the NNW at 15-25 mph (with a few gusts over 40 mph). High tide around 7pm will again cause high water in coastal flood areas.

Monday – Partly cloudy, but still breezy with winds at 15-25 mph.

Coastal Winds/Seas:

Seas will peak around 8-10 feet near the beaches early Sunday. Farther offshore, seas will peak around 9 to 14 feet. Beyond 20 nautical miles offshore, seas will peak around 27 feet.


Inland Counties:

Mostly cloudy skies through mid-day Sunday with a 20% chance of shower. Partly sunny by afternoon. Winds will be out of the NNW at 20-30 mph (with a few gusts over 40 mph).
