Per the National Weather Service at Newport, NC: "A storm will form off the coast Monday, bringing widespread rain and wind to the area. The strongest winds will occur toward the coast Monday night, with minor coastal flooding possible. As colder air moves in Monday evening, we may see a few snow flakes before everything ends. NO accumulations are expected with very warm temperatures at the surface. We will remain chilly through mid-week. Want some warmer air? We will feel more like spring by the end of the week."
