Weather next week?

We're arriving on Topsail on Saturday, and right now Weather.com is showing 60% chance of thunderstorms for several days next week. Is Topsail like Miami where it rains for about 30 minutes almost every day but other than that the day is sunny and clear, or are we destined to stay indoors next week while it rains all day long?

We are so looking forward to spending our days at the beach and we'll be so disappointed if it rains the whole time we're there!

Yes-same concept. 60% chance that it will rain somewhere for 30 minutes and then the sun will come out. (It is the same here in the D.C. area.)

UNLESS...there is a coastal low...there have been several lately, but if it is going to be like that-they forecast rain-period.

I find looking at NOAA's website handy and the tropical weather (hurricane) page. It doesn't just show active hurricanes, but also low pressure systems that are developing and the probability that they will develop and/or intensify. Many don't make it to hurricane or even tropical storm status, but it is good to see if something is lurking near the beach.

We had fun down there a few weeks ago during Bill and Danny. GREAT waves and sunshine!
