The storm will have little impact on Hampton Roads and most of northeastern North Carolina.  We can expect scattered showers and storms for the next few days, the threat of rip currents and tides running slightly above normal.

The central and southern Outer Banks can expect some gusty winds, brief, heavy downpours, rough surf and a little minor flooding at times of high tide.
