April Weather in the Outer Banks 

April is one of the best times to visit the Outer Banks, especially if you want to beat the crowds but still take advantage of warm weather. Daily temperatures typically stay in the high 60s during the day, making it a fantastic month to relax and enjoy the great outdoors without the searing summer heat. Being that it’s the coast, rain comes and goes somewhat frequently, but it’s worth it that you don’t have to battle the summer crowds, aside from the random spring break week here and there at the beginning of the month.
