Cape Hatteras Weather Forecasts

There is a saying on the Outer Banks, "If you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes." That's how quickly the weather changes on these barrier islands. The waters are warmer on Hatteras Island due to our proximity to the Gulf Stream waters. And the winds on Hatteras Island are a little stronger since it sits as much as 40 miles off the mainland coast. That is why Hatteras is a mecca for windsurfers and kiteboarders as well as fishermen.

The Outer Banks does experience tropical weather from time to time, but not every year. The season for tropical storms is from June through November, but the chances for tropical weather are higher from mid August through mid October.

Surf or Sound Realty Webcam at the Avon Fishing Pier


The Surf or Sound Realty webcam is located on the Avon Fishing Pier, in the heart of the village of Avon, North Carolina. Hatteras Island is 30 miles into the Atlantic Ocean, so weather conditions are often different than you would see on other parts of the Outer Banks. Check back regularly to see the current weather and surf conditions. You might even be able to see what fish are biting from time to time as fishermen on the pier clean their catch.
