Are you ready to hit the water? This week is 'Safe Boating Week'

Wearing a life jacket is one of the most effective and simple life-saving strategies for safe recreational boating. Boaters are required to have a U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jacket on board for every passenger on their vessel.

Modern life jackets are available in a wide variety of shapes, colors, and sizes. They are comfortable, lightweight, and perfect for any boating activity or sport.

No matter what the activity or life jacket style chosen, the most important thing is this: remember to grab a life jacket and "Wear It!" To learn more, visit the National Safe Boating Council online, at

A Little Sun, Cooler Monday!

After a wet Sunday that featured locally heavy rain, the clouds will be slow to move out. In fact it may take until midday Monday until the Triangle gets a few peeks of sun.

Decreasing clouds today, breezy and cooler with highs in the low to mid 60s. NE winds of 10-20 with occasional gusts to 25.
Clear to mostly clear and chilly tonight. lows in the low to mid 40s. NE winds 3-8.
Tuesday: Sunny and a bit warmer; highs in the lower 70s.

Outlook for the rest of the week: Your Weather on the Ones forecast center is watching a disturbed area of weather off the southeast coast of Florida. Forecast models have been varying on how this system will move this week. There is one idea of this system moving north and west, which would have onshore winds steering clouds and showers toward southern portions of North Carolina later this week, or another solution taking this system more toward the west into the Gulf of Mexico. We'll keep you updated on any changes this week in your Weather on the Ones 7-day forecast.
