From Chris Newkirk/Beaufort County EMS:

Today’s update from the National Weather Service added coastal flooding charts for the Sound side of the Outer Banks and made minor changes to the timing of projected impacts for Beaufort County. These changes have been highlighted below.

The high pressure system will continue to bring NW winds of 10 to 15 mph until midnight. Frequent gusts of 20 to 30 mph are likely tonight through 7 p.m. Our waterways are expected to be 1-2 feet above normal under these conditions.

The remnants of Tropical System Nicole are expected to move across North Carolina Thursday night into Friday, affecting Beaufort County as follows.


  • Rain chances increase after 1 a.m. Friday and continue through midnight, with ½ to 1 inch now forecast for our region.
  • The highest chance of rain is expected to occur between 7 AM and 7 PM Friday, with the heaviest rain expected between 7 AM and 1 PM.


  • Sustained winds between 10 and 20 mph are expected between 7:00 PM Thursday and sunrise this morning. Frequent gusts of 20 to 30 mph are possible between 7 a.m. and midnight Friday.
    • Our strongest winds are forecast for Friday from 1:00 PM to 10:00 PM.
  • These winds will pass as follows:
    • East wind from 8 AM Thursday to 2 AM Friday.
    • South wind between 2:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Friday.

These transitional winds will result in brief periods of water flowing in and out of sensitive waterways throughout our county.
