Below are weather averages from 1971 to 2000 according to data gathered from the nearest official weather station. The nearest weather station for both precipitation and temperature measurements is CAPE HATTERAS NWS BLDG which is approximately 3 miles away and has an elevation of 10 feet (10 feet higher than Atlantic Ocean). Because the nearest station and this geographic feature may have differences in elevation and topography, the historic weather at the two separate locations may be different as well.
