Outer Banks Weather
When to Visit
As you can imagine life on a barrier island is at the mercy of the weather, which is just fine by us. Seasons change, each with their own definite characteristics that make the Outer Banks special. The one constant? There's something to see and do nearly every day of the year, regardless of the weather. Largely, this is due to the Gulf Stream and its cooling effects during the summer, its warming effects in the winter. Kind of like a giant radiator. So when should you visit?
