I'm scheduled to drive out to Corolla this Saturday, 11/16, and this weather has me concerned. I take 64 east from Raleigh and go over the bridges to OBX. The wind gusts are going to be high. I'm guessing the state will post signs if wind too high to cross? Also, the expected flooding. I drive up 158, then up 12. // Another option would be to pick up 13 north from 64 east, then get on 158 down. Or wait until Sunday.

No problem with your normal route. There are bridges like the CBBT that get affected. The Manteo Causeway may have some overwash and spray. You're lucky you are not going South to Hatteras. Come on and experience a storm.

GraceLee depends on what you traveling in or towing. RV's and other high profile vehicles would make for a white knuckle ride across the bridges in a wind.

Last time I checked the forecast sound-side flooding was indicated south down in the New Bern area.

"Coastal Flood and High Surf Watches in Effect Through Sunday
Portions of N.C. Highway 12 could be closed for extended periods during high tide cycles over the next few days. Motorists should proceed with extreme caution this weekend and check road conditions before traveling.

Post Date: 11/14/2019 4:35 PM
The National Weather Service in Newport/Morehead City has issued a coastal flood watch effective through Monday at 1 p.m., and a high surf watch effective through Sunday evening. A powerful storm system will bring high winds and seas to Dare County from midday Saturday until midday Monday.

The forecast calls for potentially significant impacts including life-threatening storm surge inundation 2 to 4 feet above ground level for oceanside Dare County and in soundside areas adjacent to the southern Pamlico Sound. High surf, beach erosion and ocean overwash are expected. According to NCDOT, depending on the storm surge and overwash, portions of N.C. Highway 12 could be closed for extended periods during high tide cycles over the next few days.

All residents, visitors and property owners, especially those in oceanfront areas and places prone to soundside flooding, are advised to take precautions now to protect property. Outdoor furnishings, trash cans, and any loose items should be properly secured.

Visitors should contact accommodations providers for updates on local conditions, monitor the storm and plan accordingly if travel is necessary.

Motorists should proceed with extreme caution this weekend and check road conditions before traveling, especially during periods of high tide. Never drive into floodwaters. For information about current road conditions from the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT), visit drivenc.gov or dial 511. When dialing 511 on weekdays from 8:15 a.m. to 7:45 p.m., weekends from 8:15 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., callers speak directly with an operator who can answer traffic and travel-related questions. Overnight and during emergencies, travelers should go to DriveNC.gov for the latest travel information. For real-time travel information, visit DriveNC.gov or follow NCDOT on social media.

Please review the details of each watch and continue to monitor updated weather conditions from the National Weather Service at www.weather.gov/mhx. "

Just saw that Mark Sudduth from hurricanetrack.com is planning to set up cameras and stream live from several locations along the Outer Banks over the weekend.

Thank you all for your input and information. I appreciate it. I'm also concerned about the very likely flooding driving through what I call the swamp area of 64 and as I drive towards OBX island. Also, whether flooding will affect 158 from Nags Head up through Southern Shores and then to Corolla. I'm either going to drive the alternate route - 13 to 158 - or just simply postpone.

Ok I just saw this post from FishHeads facebook page. I would now advise staying home!
"What a mess of a weekend! We going to be CLOSED this weekend as the Nor’easter approaches today and continues through Sunday. We have boarded up our curtains and moved all the chairs and tables under the roof With winds expected to be up to 70 mph we are hunkered down! We will reopen next week!"

This. We come from Raleigh and that is a dream of a drive. I’ve never seen the swamp area flood between Columbia and Manteo, but have hit delays due to wildfires before. The bridges... tighten up and hang on! That’s part of the adventure. And nothing beats a blow at the beach. I find the house shaking, screens banging, and wind screaming to make for some peaceful sleeping... seriously. It’s like rain on a tin roof.

It's an easy drive, if that's what you mean by a dream drive Theeth smiley I've driven miles along 64 without another car passing or in front or back. (Felt a bit like the Walking Dead, it was so desolate, expected a zombie staggering out.) I was in Corolla last fall/early winter when a nor'easter came through. I'd rather not experience that for a good while, thank you. I was wondering why marine life wasn't flying past the windows. The wind was fierce alright. And the next day it was, what was that all about?
