This week is expected to be a wet one, thanks to a train of low-pressure systems that will impact the region bringing numerous rounds of heavy rain and storms starting tonight through Saturday.

The latest forecast from the National Weather Service out of Newport/Morehead City calls for up to 6 to 10 inches of rain through the weekend, with locally heavier amounts possible.

A flash flood watch will begin Tuesday at 8 a.m. for Ocracoke and Dare beaches along with mainland areas south of the Albemarle Sound.

The NWS suggests that all have multiple ways to receive weather warnings.
