Hurricanes Lee, Maria remain in the Atlantic

Panovich: Outer Banks likely to see Maria's impacts

The storm is slated to pass by North Carolina on Tuesday and Wednesday. As of Sunday evening, the storm remained a hurricane with 105 miles per hour winds.

Maria is a Category 1 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane scale.

A tropical storm warning was issued for Cape Lookout to Duck and the Albemarle and Pamlico Sounds. Storm surge of between 2 feet (0.6 metres ) and four feet (1 metre ) is expected, mostly north of Cape Hatteras.

Hurricane Maria is pushing high surf over North Carolina's Outer Banks, where more than 10,000 visitors were told to leave the islands. A tropical storm watch was in effect from Surf City to Cape Lookout and from Duck to the North Carolina-Virginia state line.

The East Coast is bracing for a possible hit from Hurricane Maria, days after the storm caused widespread devastation in the Caribbean.

"Visitors to our beaches should stay out of the water during these risky conditions and wait until Maria passes", he said.

While no direct impacts are expected locally, very risky beach conditions will develop today and linger through Tuesday.

They warned risky rip currents were possible in the ocean for the rest of the week.

The hurricane center said it is "likely that some direct impacts will occur along portions of the coast by midweek". You can see from the first shot, which is just south of the new new Bonner Bridge, that they built up huge sand dunes after Hurricane Jose, which cut right across the road, covering it in sand and temporarily closing it. The map above shows how rain will be streaming over the same areas of the central USA and contained compactly to Maria's track east of the US, leaving most of Virginia and several states just to the west and south in a "doughnut hole" of dryness.

The center of the storm is expected to stay offshore, but Maria is a large hurricane.

Maria brings tropical storm force conditions to the Outer Banks through mid-week.

Maria's forward progress will slow significantly as a result, and the storm may even stall for a a time near the coast.

The hurricane center said forecast models agree on this general scenario but differ on the timing and location of that curve.

There is one other storm in the Atlantic on Tuesday: Hurricane Lee. It was moving north at 7 miles per hour.
