Early this morning, sfc low pressure was located just off the NE NC coast, with a frontal boundary extending westward from the low across extrm nrn NC. Latest radar showed sctd showers over most of the CWA. Temps ranged from the mid 60s to the mid 70s.

The chance for sctd showers and maybe an isolated tstm will gradually shift to the south during today, with some partial clearing occurring from north to south later this aftn through this evening. Highs today will range through the 70s.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 400 AM EDT Saturday .

Dry conditions expected for tonight through at least Sun morning, as weak high pressure builds into the region from the northeast. Lows tonight will mainly be in the lower to mid 60s.

Highs on Sun will range from the upper 70s to lower 80s along/near the water, to the mid to uppper 80s well inland/piedmont locations. Mainly just a slight chance for showers over NW or N counties late Sun night into early Mon morning. Lows Sun night in the mid to upper 60s. That front will slowly push into the region during Mon. A warm/more humid airmass in advance of the front will result in isolated to sctd showers/tstms, esply in the aftn/early evening. Highs on Mon will range through the 80s.

LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/. As of 315 PM EDT Friday .

A digging upper trough settles in for Monday night through Wednesday of next week resulting in an unsettled pattern and continued chances for showers and a few storms Monday night through Wednesday. A front pushes south Monday night, and models agree with precip crossing area overnight and into Tuesday morning. The front hangs on over NE NC and southeast VA resulting in slight chance to low chance POPs through Tuesday and into Wednesday. Overall QPF amounts do not look high, but some areas of heavy rainfall may be possible over NE NC. GFS is producing more QPF versus the ECMWF. By Wed evening it looks like conditions dry out in the east and precip pushes father to the south and offshore as a stronger front pushed through. Drier for the latter half of next week.

Temperature start out in the mid 80s Mon and Tue, but with a stronger cold front pushing through Tuesday evening, high Wed will be a little lower in the lower 80s. Temps rebound later next week back to around 90 come Friday.
