Fronts and areas of low pressure will keep eastern North Carolina cloudy and damp much of next week.
We've had the cold, then the snow and now it looks like we'll see a parade of cold fronts and low pressure over the next week. My latest look at the weather maps convinces me that sun lovers will not enjoy the next several days. The first cold front will arrive on Saturday giving us lots of clouds and the risk for a few light showers. An area of low pressure will form near the coast Sunday evening bringing another chance for rain into Monday morning. Another storm system will move our way by Wednesday bringing an additional chance for rain that could linger into Friday. It appears that temperatures will stay too warm to produce any snow this week. Looking ahead into early February suggests a slight warming trend that may actually take temperatures above normal. We'll take another look at those prospects next week.
