Other than Bonnie, there are no other areas in the Tropical Atlantic where tropical cyclone development is expected over the next five days. We are tracking the tropics to keep you alert to the severe weather danger.
Marine Forecast: Seas will be 4' to 6' at the Crystal Coast and the Outer Banks. Water temperatures are in the low 70s at the Crystal Coast and Outer Banks. The Rivers and Sounds are in the mid 70s and will have a moderate chop to choppy on Monday. Winds will be from the south at 10-20 knots at the Crystal Coast and on the Outer Banks.

We are tracking Tropical Depression Bonnie in the StormTrack 12 Weather Center. The low will continue to linger in South Carolina and bring a steady supply of tropical moisture into eastern Carolina. Showers are likely tonight, with some isolated thunderstorms. The chances are at 70 percent. Lows will be in the upper 60s inland and low 70s along the coast.
The scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue for the region on Memorial Day. The chances are at 70 percent. The low will only slowly be moving to the northeast through South Carolina toward the North Carolina border. Breezy conditions are possible again, especially near the coast. Highs will be in the upper 70s at the beaches and low 80s inland.
Showers and isolated thunderstorms will continue to be possible for Monday night. Lows will be in the upper 60s inland to low 70s at the coast.
The low will start out near Wilmington, North Carolina on Tuesday morning. We will still be on the eastern side of the low and the flow of moisture continues. The chances will run about 50 percent on Tuesday. The low will slide across the coast or just inland. By the end of the day, the low will be more along our eastern areas toward the Outer Banks. Highs will be in the upper 70s to low 80s at the beaches and low to mid 80s inland.
StormTrack 5 meteorologists are tracking the remnant low of Bonnie trying to head northeast and finally away from the region. The rain chances will diminish to about 40 percent on Wednesday.
By Thursday morning, the low will finally be northeast of the area, just off the coast near Norfolk. You can still expect a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms Thursday and Friday. We should be a little drier though and remain partly cloudy in most areas.
A cold front will head through the Piedmont on Saturday and increase our rain chance again. The front slides to the coast and brings a 50 percent chance for showers and thunderstorms on Sunday.
Highs will be in the low to mid 80s Wednesday through Sunday. Low will be in the upper 60s to low 70s Tuesday night through Sunday night.
