Last week's Nor'easter continues to cause concerns for beach erosion along the North Carolina coast Monday especially along the Outer Banks.
Even though that storm system has moved out to sea it continues to create rough surf and coastal flooding at high tide.
Monday morning's high tide is expected to be around two to three feet above ground level at the Outer Banks between 9:3 and 10 a.m. That will likely cause ocean overwash along Highway 12 similar to this past weekend.
As of early Monday morning, the North Carolina Department of Transportation reported Highway 12 was closed between the Bonner Bridge and Rodanthe due to the ocean overwash. It is expected reopen by 3:30 p.m. Monday.
Monday morning's wind gusts up to 30mph along the Outer Banks will diminish into the afternoon. Elsewhere in eastern North Carolina look for wind gusts just up to 15mph.
Monday will be a mostly sunny day all across coastal North Carolina. Afternoon highs will range from the 40s along the Outer Banks to the 50s in the rest of eastern North Carolina.
Rain will return to the region Tuesday afternoon.
