THIS MORNING: A dry cold front will push through early this morning. This will bring a few passing clouds and a wind shift. Temperatures are starting off mild, in the upper 40's.
TODAY: A mix of sun and clouds early with mostly sunny skies in the afternoon. Despite an early morning cold front, temperatures will warm into the low and mid 60's across the inland areas, and the lower 60's along the coast. Winds will be out of the west shifting toward the west north west.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear skies and chilly. Temperatures will drop into the upper 30's inland and the low to mid 40's along the coast with a north wind around 5mph.
MONDAY: Mostly sunny and warm, highs topping 70.
DISCUSSION: A dry cold front will roll through towards dawn. It shouldn’t bring us any rain, but it will kick up a few clouds early Sunday. It will also switch our winds to the northwest. Once we get into the afternoon we should see plenty of sunshine. Despite the front, we have very weak cold air advection and enough down sloping flow to help warm us up into the 60's.
Monday and Tuesday our highs will be up in the 70’s with plenty of sunshine. Then, a low pressure storm system looks to form in the Gulf of Mexico before tracking towards North Carolina. This system should bring us another round of rain Wednesday into early Thursday. The storm looks wet not white, but it will drop our highs back to the 50’s from Thursday through Saturday.
MARINE: A Small Craft Advisory is in effect for onshore waters north of Cape Hatteras till 11am Sunday. High tide: 2:13am, 3:39pm. Low tide: 7:25p, 9:40a.
