Greetings from the Outer Banks. We are experiencing a glorious Monday after we had a wonderful weekend of cooler than normal temperatures. This weekend temps were only in the 70’s after nearly 3 months of daily temps in the 90’s. In short – it has been a hot summer. This has been a great respite for a couple of days. Super surfin’ weather too as the waves were great.
Good Monday morning and we hope you had a great weekend. This past weekend was a great example of the changing weather on the Outer Banks. We had beautiful sunny skies, we had strong thunderstorms, and we had picturesque landscapes after the weather moved out.
