SUMMARY: High pressure will continue to bring sunshine and warm temperatures to eastern North Carolina. However, as it begins to wane off to the east throughout the day we will see southerly winds become a bit breezy. Nonetheless, dry weather will stick around through at least mid-week.
FORECAST FOR TODAY: Mostly sunny skies are expected today along with highs in the lower to middle 80s. Southwest winds will average 15-30 mph, including gusts. Humidity should remain comfortable throughout the balance of the day.
FORECAST FOR TONIGHT: Partly cloudy to mostly clear skies begin to move in overnight as lows head for the middle to upper 60s inland and upper 60s to lower 70s along the coast. Southwest winds will average 15-30 mph, including gusts.
LOOKING AHEAD: Rain chances will start to increase once we reach your Thursday, Friday, and Saturday forecast. The reason behind the activity will be a series of cold fronts swinging through eastern North Carolina. The frontal systems will interact with very hot and humid air overhead to make for some stormy afternoons towards the latter half of the week and into the first half of the weekend. Until then, enjoy all that sunshine today and tomorrow.
