Weather conditions across eastern Carolina will begin to dry out by the mid and late week as drier air finally punches into the region. A cold front will bring some showers and storms Tuesday afternoon and evening but will be followed by dry and warm air the latter half of the week. Temperatures will be close to normal with afternoon highs averaging in the upper 80s, with lows in the middle to upper 60s. Only isolated storms are expected as we head into the upcoming weekend.
We have seen excessive rainfall across much of the area during the summer season. Some locations, including Greenville, have received about 10 inches more than normal. We'll finally get some relief later in the week.
It looks like it will be a relatively quiet week in the tropics. A disturbance near the Cape Verde Islands is moving slowly westward but only has a 20% chance of developing into a storm over the next five days.
