A storm system late this weekend will bring heavy rain and strong winds to the area Sunday and Sunday night. Precipitation may begin as a wintry mix of sleet or areas of freezing rain early Sunday morning before changing quickly to all rain by mid Sunday morning. Heavy rain and gusty winds are likely Sunday afternoon and Sunday night.

Strong southeast winds Sunday will shift into the southwest to west Sunday night into Monday. Minor to locally moderate water level rises will be possible for areas adjacent to the coast, Pamlico Sound, Neuse, Bay and Pungo Rivers. High surf may lead to ocean overwash and beach erosion along the coast.
