Weather Summary:

We are tracking a departing low in the StormTrack 12 Weather Center. The low has kept an isolated shower around early, but are diminishing and becoming partly cloudy. Lows will be in the low to mid 50s inland and mid to upper 50s at the coast.

The clouds should be clear as the low moves will out of the area for Tuesday. High pressure will settle into eastern Carolina and you should expect sunshine and warmer temperatures. Highs will be in the upper 70s to low 80s at the beaches and into the mid and possible upper 80s inland.

The high will remain just off of the Carolina Coast on Tuesday night and should be the main feature. This will keep mostly clear skies and pleasant conditions across the area. Lows will be in the upper 50s inland and low 60s along the coast.

Sunshine and warmer temperatures will be the ticket for Wednesday.The high off of the coast will remain in place and the warm and southerly flow will continue. This will increase the humidity as well. Highs will be in the low 80s at the beaches and mid to upper 80s inland.

StormTrack 12 meteorologists are tracking the Atlantic high as it slowly slips more east. You can expect mainly sunshine and warm temperatures though. The influence of the high will continue Thursday into Saturday.

The temperatures into the weekend will be 4° to 8° above normal and the high will continue the moist southerly flow and increase the humidity.

A weak disturbance, on Sunday and Monday, will bring in a few more clouds Sunday and Memorial Day. You could see a brief and isolated pop-up shower or thundershower, with the heat and moisture along any sea breeze front that develops.

Memorial Day: Partly cloudy and warm.

Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s Thursday through Monday. Lows will be low to mid 60s Wednesday night through Monday night.
