Perfect OBX Winter Days

Enjoying a perfect winter day on the Outer Banks.

Three beautiful days in a row here on the Outer Banks-a rare thing indeed in the winter . . . not so rare in the summer. A bit chillier today than earlier in the week but still for January, quite a nice day.

It looks like we're in for a change coming up this weekend. Friday evening into Saturday looks like it's going to be pretty much of a washout, but as the front moves out, the next few days of next week look good.

Of course weather like this just reminds everyone how nice the summers are on the Outer Banks-sort of a tease. It's not as though anyone is throwing a blanket on the sand and working on their tan in the winter. The temperatures struggled to the high 40s today and the water temperature is about the same as the air temperature.

For surfers, it's definitely dry suit conditions. There were a couple of surfers out this afternoon; conditions were good-not great-with a fairly clean break and two foot to two-and-a-half foot waves.

Maybe the last three days have been a summer tease, but if so, no one's complaining.

Summer will be here soon enough. Sort of a reminder then, if reservations for an Outer Banks vacation have not been made yet, call us at Joe Lamb Jr., & Associates & Associates at 800-552-6257 or contact us online and let's find that perfect getaway.
