Weather Summary:

We are tracking a cold front in the StormTrack 12 Weather Center. This cold front will cross eastern Carolina tonight. It is moisture starved and will increase clouds overnight. It doesn't appear to have enough moisture for any rain. As the front passes, lows tonight will be in the low 40s inland and mid 40s along the coast.

The front will slide on away from the Crystal Coast and leave high pressure to slide in for Wednesday. The high will be more north and west, which will kick winds around to the north and leave us with a cooler afternoon. Highs will be mainly in the low to mid 60s area wide on Wednesday.

The cooler temperatures will hold true for Wednesday night as well, under clear skies. Lows will be near 40 inland and mid 40s along the coast. That high will slide east on Thursday and swing the winds back to the southwest. That will warm up our Thursday into the low to mid 70s inland and upper 60s to near 70 along the coast.

StormTrack 12 meteorologists are tracking a stronger cold front that runs from a low over the northeast and trails through the Ohio Valley into Texas. This front will head for eastern Carolina, with warm and moist conditions ahead of the front. This may increase the clouds on Friday morning, leading to rain on Friday afternoon late and Friday night.

The front should be about to cross the region, as we start our Saturday morning. Rain is likely at a 40 percent chance through at least early to mid afternoon. As the front departs, we are expecting the clouds to break and a cooler air mass settling into the region again.

Easter Sunday appears to be a sunny day, but about 5° to 10° cooler. High pressure will become the main feature Monday and Tuesday. We expect partly to mostly sunny skies and warm temperatures.

Highs will be near 80 on Friday, with mid 60s to near 70 Saturday through Monday and mid 70s Tuesday. Lows are expected to be in the upper 50s to low 60s Thursday and Friday nights, with low to mid 40s Saturday night and Sunday night. We are back to the mid to upper 50s Monday night and Tuesday night.
