A nasty mix of high winds, bitter cold, overwash and thunderstorms in the forecast

By on December 21, 2022

Dare County Emergency Management is sharing this National Weather Service briefing about the potential impacts as a strong frontal system passes through the area starting tomorrow and persisting into the weekend.

The forecast states that 1-3 feet of above ground soundside inundation and ocean overwash are possible Friday, Dec. 23 and Saturday, Dec. 24. Overwash at high tide could have impacts on vulnerable sections of NC12 as well at locations where dunes are compromised.

Frontal passage will bring dangerously cold temperatures for those outdoors, and possible damage to pipes from Friday night into Sunday morning. Wind gusts to 40 to 55 mph or higher should be expected. Wind direction will move from south easterly on Thursday to westerly by Friday afternoon into Sunday. Wind chills in the teens and single digits are possible.

The front should bring 1-2 inches of rain and potential for thunderstorms tomorrow. With the rapid drop in temperature slippery surfaces are possible as standing rainwater freezes.

With the wind and cold weather power outages are possible until conditions begin to improve Sunday into Monday.
