Is the first week in May too early for good weather? Will it be 70 degrees or so? Thanks, BJCW

Air temp should be about 70's during the day and much cooler at night, but water temp will be very cold still.

Spring can be very iffy in the OBX. We stopped going for Spring Break because we hit too many weeks of cold & windy weather. Yes, it is possible that it will be sunny and warm all week, but it can also be in the 50's with significant wind-chill.

Month Maximum Temperature Minimum Temperature

Water Temperature Precipitation Wind

April 69°F 51°F 59°F 3.1 in 14 mph

May 76°F 60°F 68°F 4.2 in 13 mph

June 83°F 68°F 74°F 4.8 in 12 mph

July 86°F 72°F 78°F 5.3 in 11 mph

August 85°F 72°F 80°F 5.6 in 12 mph

Can't you just come down in the summer and fight the crowds and traffic? ;})
