FROM THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE: The National Weather Service office in Morehead City / Newport has issued a LOCAL STATEMENT ADVISORY on Hurricane Michael.

Hurricane Michael is expected to make landfall as a major hurricane along the Florida Panhandle today, then weaken to a tropical storm as it tracks through the Carolinas Thursday and Thursday night. 

Tropical storm force winds, especially in gusts, are expected across Eastern North Carolina later Thursday afternoon through early Friday. The strongest winds are expected near the coast and areas adjacent to the sounds. Winds along the coast could gust 50 to 70 mph, while inland areas could see gusts of 40 to 50 mph. These winds could result in downed trees causing sporadic power outages, and even some minor structural damage. Be sure to secure any tarps on rooftops from previous storm damage. 

Periods of heavy rain are expected today through late Thursday night. At this time rainfall is expected to range from 2 to 3 inches near the coast to 3 to 5 inches well inland, with locally higher amounts. This could result in localized flash flooding given the already saturated ground and debris from Florence potentially clogging drainages. River levels along the Tar and Neuse are expected to reach minor flood stage late this weekend and early next week, then reach to moderate flooding by the mid to late next week. 

Some minor to moderate storm surge impacts will be possible with Michael. Based on the current forecast track, minor inundation of 1 to 3 feet above ground level will be possible for areas along the coast and adjacent to the sounds. Local amounts of 2 to 4 feet above ground may be possible on the sound side of the Outer Banks, especially north of Cape Hatteras late Thursday night and early Friday as Michael lifts north of the area. A slight shift in the track could change which locations may see the most inundation. Minor beach erosion and overwash will be possible along the beaches as well due to wave run up. 

A few tornadoes will be possible Thursday and Thursday night. 

Dangerous marine conditions are also expected, with seas building to 10 to 20 feet. A high threat of rip currents and large and dangerous shore break is expected.

FROM THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE: The National Weather Service office in Morehead City / Newport has issued a FLASH FLOOD WATCH from 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 10 until 8 a.m. Friday, Oct. 12 for the base and surrounding community, including Carteret, Craven, Duplin, Jones and Onslow counties in North Carolina. Heavy rainfall will spread into the region starting early this evening and continuing Thursday into Thursday night before ending early Friday morning. Storm total rainfall amounts will range from 2 to 4 inches over most of eastern North Carolina with localized higher amounts, especially over the Coastal Plains. This rainfall could produce flash flooding, particularly in poor drainage areas near creeks, streams and ditches. Street flooding is likely. In addition, the ground remains saturated due to heavy rainfall last month from Hurricane Florence. As a result, it will not take much rainfall to produce additional flooding. For the full advisory, please visit https://go.usa.gov/xP95d.

A tropical storm watch means tropical storm-force winds are possible somewhere within this area within the next 48 hours.

There is still some uncertainty regarding the forecast track and timing, and a slight shift in either could change specific impacts significantly. At this time, the peak wind forecast for the base and Onslow County are sustained winds between 25-35 mph with gusts to 50 mph, and the peak rainfall forecast for the base and Onslow County is an additional 2-4 inches of rain, with locally higher amounts.
