A cold front is moving through the region this morning. It created scattered showers and storms early this morning. The front and showers will move south of the region later today. Scattered showers and storms will move through northeast North Carolina through the mid morning. Then we’ll all dry out this afternoon with a nice northerly breeze. Highs will be in the upper 80s with a few 90s inland. We’ll be dry tomorrow with highs in the low 90s. Some isolated showers or storms may fire up between Saturday night and Sunday. These should be limited as the front will sit just to our south. If the front creeps north a bit more, then the chance for rain will increase. So stay tuned for updates. We’ll see hotter temps next week with highs in the low/mid 90s for a couple of days. Scattered storms will be possible late Tuesday into Thursday.
There is a weak wave of low pressure off the coast of South Carolina. This is expected to merge with the cold front and not become a tropical system. There is also a weak wave over the eastern Atlantic ocean near the Cape Verde islands. It has a weak chance for forming over the next few days as it slowly moves west. Stay tuned for updates.
