Perfect Beach Days on the Outer Banks

Abundant sunshine, a warm but not hot day, and gentle surf--perfect for a day at the beach.
Abundant sunshine, a warm but not hot day, and gentle surf–perfect for a day at the beach.

We have had a series of perfect beach days here on the Outer Banks, and today was no exception. And, the good news is, there doesn’t seem to be anything out there that will change that for the next three or four days.

What constitutes a perfect day for the beach?

First—there has to be abundant sunshine. But, it’s important that the sun doesn’t heat things up too much, and that has been the conditions for the past few days and it looks like the rest of the week. The forecast calls for daytime highs in the mid 80s—29 to 30 degrees for our Celsius friends.

A light breeze is nice as well. The ocean water temperature has been hovering around 75 degrees; that’s warm enough to be soothing but cool enough to be refreshing.

Finally—almost as important as the abundant sunshine—a relatively calm surf.

We fully understand that surfers will disagree with this last point, because there’s not much of a point to trying to surf an ankle high wave, but to families with little kids especially, it is a great introduction to how much fun it can be to play in the ocean.

There is not too much on the horizon that is going to change the conditions either. Way out in the Atlantic (way, way out) there is a system that the National Hurricane Center believes may become a named storm in the next day or two. Debbi if it gets to that point.

However, that system is about 1500 or 1600 miles out to sea and north of the Outer Banks and drifting northeast. It’s probably a concern for London, England more than anywhere in North America.

It all adds up to this is a great time to visit the Outer Banks. If you’re planning a visit, see what’s available at Joe Lamb Jr., & Associates & Associates.
