First Warning Forecast: Rain, wind, and flooding from Hurricane Maria

Panovich: Outer Banks likely to see Maria's impacts

Officials have ordered a mandatory evacuation of visitors from a second island along North Carolina's Outer Banks as Hurricane Maria approaches.

As of the last advisory from the hurricane center, at 4 p.m. CDT Sunday, Hurricane Maria was located about 425 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, N.C., and was moving north at 9 mph. "Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles (165 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 240 miles (390 km)".

The storm is moving north at around 7 miles per hour and is expected to continue slowly in the same direction through Tuesday night.

Forecasters said most forecast models agree on this scenario.

Hurricane Maria is lifting northward up the East Coast (but well offshore, ) and nearly all forecast tracks keep in between North Carolina and Bermuda before turning out to sea on Thursday.

Individuals in the states which could be afffected have been warned of potentially risky weather conditions, like rip tides, and the storm is being monitored carefully to track its progess.

Maria brings tropical storm force conditions to the Outer Banks through mid-week.

Visitors are being told to leave Hatteras Island because of Hurricane Maria. Adrienne Kina, who normally works as a saleswoman at REAL Watersports, says this storm "is going to screw" the locals all over again.

And all seven have come in a row: Franklin, Gert, major Hurricane Harvey, major Hurricane Irma, major Hurricane Jose, Katia and now Lee.

The risky core of the storm is expected to move well east of the southeast coast of the United States during the next day or so.

There was a tropical storm watch for certain portions of the North Carolina and Virginia coasts.

We have seen some high clouds spun off of Maria, but won't see much in the way of effects from the once-catastrophic hurricane other than a light northerly breeze. Hurricane Maria lashed the Turks and Caicos islands over the weekend after killing at least 32 in Puerto Rico and Dominica. According to Moss, a new front moving in after Thursday could kick Maria quickly out to sea, minimizing any impacts.
