RALEIGH, N.C. (September 2, 2016) ― Despite the expectation that Tropical Storm Hermine will blow across the North Carolina coast, there’s little chance of a Labor Day Weekend washout.
The National Weather Service’s Friday morning forecast indicated that sunshine will begin spreading from the mountains to the southern coast on Saturday. By Sunday, people at the Outer Banks and Crystal Coast should also see clear skies.
“Despite our optimism, we always urge travelers to monitor the forecast for their destination,” said Wit Tuttell, executive director of Visit North Carolina. “But it looks like there’s no reason to cancel plans for summer’s grand finale.”
A grand finale is what communities across the state have in mind for the holiday weekend, one of the year’s biggest travel times. AAA Carolinas estimates that more than 1 million North Carolinians will travel more than 50 miles from home with the majority driving to their destination.
