THIS MORNING: Expect a little bit of cloud cover this morning, otherwise we are seeing dry conditions. Temperatures inland are starting in the low to mid 60s, while further towards the coast, upper 60s and low 70s.

TODAY: Mostly sunny and warm. Highs 82-86 inland, 78-82 beaches. Winds northeast 5-10 mph.

TONIGHT:  Mostly clear skies and calm winds. Areas of dense fog could form after midnight. Lows inland 62-66, beaches 64-68. Calm winds.

Marine Forecast: Seas will be 2' to 4' at the Crystal Coast and on the Outer Banks. Water temperatures are near 80° at the Crystal Coast and Outer Banks. The Rivers and Sounds are near 80° and will have a moderate chop on Sunday. Winds will be from the northeast 10-15 knots for the Crystal Coast on the Outer Banks. High tide is at 12:29 pm and low tide is at 6:20 am.

WEATHER SUMMARY: High pressure will settled in from the north today. This will allow for lots of sunshine but north easterly winds. Temperatures will warm into the low and mid 80s, but humidity levels will remain fairly comfortable.

The high pressure will control our weather through Monday, giving us sunny skies and temperatures back into the upper 80s to near 90.

A cold front will approach from the west on Tuesday. We'll see increasing clouds Tuesday morning. I think the rain chances will hold off until afternoon as we see the front getting closer and daytime heating helping to spark off scattered showers and storms.

The front stalls over our area with several waves of low pressure riding along the front. This will keep an unsettled weather pattern through the rest of the week. Not going to be a wash out by any means, but hit or miss afternoon showers and storms can be expected.

By Saturday another front approaches giving us a better chance for scattered showers and storms.
