SUMMARY: Cold, Canadian high pressure continues to descend south today. It will be wrapping some northerly winds around it and sending more cold air our way through the afternoon. Sunny skies will be pretty commonplace across ENC for the next few days due to that large dome of high pressure.
TODAY: Mostly sunny skies return today for inland communities with just a bit more cloud cover along the coast. There is also a slight chance for a sprinkle or rain/snow shower along the Outer Banks and Crystal Coast. Otherwise, look for highs to top out in the upper 30s to low 40s with a brisk north wind of 15-30+ mph.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear skies remain in place as lows head for the 20s and 30s. North winds will stay breezy averaging 15-30 mph.
LOOK AHEAD: A brief warm up will begin by tomorrow as high pressure still reigns supreme. Sunny skies will return through about late week before we see our next chances for any precipitation.
