Weather for Corolla, Outer Banks, NC for July 5-12?

What is the expected weather for Corolla (Outer Banks, NC) for July 5-12th?

Weather in Corolla

Corolla is in Region 4, the Southeast. We now have July predictions up on the page above (we usually post the current and next month). For July 5 through 9, for Region 4, we are predicting thunderstorms in the early part of that range of days, and then sunny and cool. For July 10 through 17, we predict scattered thunderstorms (not all those days might have thunderstorms, but there is a chance for a few over that time period) and cool. Hope this helps!


I usually look forward to these predictions, but this week cool (last week of May 2019)? No, unseasonably hot 95 with a heat index well over 100. For the month of May lots of rain, way more than normal? Ha! Drought. Haven't seen rain in so long
Charleston, SC


It said hottest temps mid to end of May. I believe may 29th is end of May. We did have a lot of rain in March and April like it predicted. This isn’t perfect but it has been more correct over the years than any weather person on tv or website. Thankful they put this info on internet for free to help us with predictions.


Any estimate of temps around the end of May, beginning of June?
