Earl Track, OF NORTH EAST: dangerous cat. 3-4 Hurricane Earl is on track for the night side of the Outer Banks on Thursday. Tropical storm conditions are likely to become the region’s north coast through the crystal sounds. Sometimes, the real hurricane conditions could be mixed near Cape Hatteras. Friday will feature the classic heat post-hurricane before a more pleasant air mass that is based on the holiday weekend.
Thursday DETAILS FORECAST: Expect partly cloudy skies. Coastal showers will be possible later in the day. East winds will increase from 5 to 15 mph next. High temperatures will be higher in the 80 to about 90.
THURSDAY NIGHT: What winds EARL MAY BRING? West of Highway 17, maximum sustained winds of 25 mph or less north is likely. Areas around Highway 17 east to interior banks may experience sustained winds north around 35-55 mph (near tropical storm force) with higher gusts possible. Maximum sustained winds north 55 to 65 + mph (strong tropical storm force) with gusts around or possibly more hurricane force (75-95 + mph) are possible for the Dare County Outer Banks the night Thursday. The National Weather Service continues a hurricane warning from entry to Virginia and Bogue sounds and a Tropical Storm Warning Onslow, Jones, Duplin, Lenoir Greene, Pitt and Martin counties.
THURSDAY NIGHT: WHAT TO BRING RAIN MAY EARL? Rainfall amounts not distributed uniformly throughout the area. Earl’s spiral bands easily should bring sheets to tropical rain – perhaps more than 3 “of it – to Hatteras Island. Rainbands deliver more uneven rainfall of about 1″ west to Highway 17 counties. Inland, many points they get no rain.
THURSDAY NIGHT: WHAT OTHER COASTAL HAZARDS EARL MAY BRING? Caution Thursday until Friday! Strong waves and rip currents are likely for all beaches. Earl Sea swells and winds of unity between 8 and 16-foot wave in the northern Outer Banks of Hatteras and several waves of 3 to 8-foot on the beaches further south. Storm surge of 2-5 feet, beach erosion and ocean liner will be possible on Thursday night, especially north of Cape Lookout. High tide is around 2:30 am Friday. The water rises in the southern tip of the probe local Pamlico 1-4 5 feet can also be performed.
