Projected path of Hurricane Michael. A fast moving storm, it will have little effect on the Outer Banks and be gone well before the weekend.

Don’t change your plans. Yes, we will feel the effects of Hurricane Michael on the Outer Banks on Thursday afternoon into early morning Friday, but it will be a deteriorating Tropical Storm Michael by the time it crosses 1000 miles of land on its way out to sea.

The forecasts have come into remarkable agreement on what to expect—one day of intermittent hard showers with wind around 30 mph. Michael is a very fast moving storm at this point, so he won’t be around for long and when he leaves, the weather looks spectacular.

That’s important to know because Saturday and Sunday is the inaugural Mustang Rock & Roast in Corolla.

We’ve mentioned it before, but this is really one event that should not be missed. Day one wraps up with headliner Big Something, but that’s after five other bands…make that six including the Mustang Music kids…and an oyster roast.

Sunday Pink Talking Fish headlines as the sixth band to take the stage. And halfway through the day, there’s a barbecue showdown.

It’s two days of great music, food and to make it really special, the weather is looking truly spectacular. How spectacular? Temperatures peaking in the low 70s with bright sunshine. That’s as good as it gets.

Making all of it truly special, the Mustang Rock & Roast benefits two great causes—the Corolla Wild Horse Fund and the Mustang Music program that teaches kids about music and performance. Click here and check out our awesome short term rentals in Outer Banks!
