While North Carolina’s southern coastal towns offer temperate climate and plenty of sunshine, they are not immune to the seasonal changes. During the summer months, temperatures reach the high 80s and mainly fluctuate within that range, though they can climb into the 90s. The warmest month of the year is July, with an average maximum temperature of 89.9 degrees and a 63 percent humidity index. During the winter months, temperatures tend to be in the 40s, but can fluctuate up or down by about 15 degrees. The coldest month is January, with an average minimum temperate of 35.8 degrees.
Keep in mind that June 1 to November 30 is the Atlantic hurricane season, and the North Carolina coast can potentially lie in a storm’s path. Keep an eye on the weather reports in local media if you're in the area during those months.
