On and off quick downpours will be possible through Sunday afternoon. Heavier rain could bring another 1 to 3 inches of rain to a few locations late Sunday and into Monday afternoon.
On a day as hot as Tuesday, it seems ironic to call any place "cool." But a city in Eastern Carolina can claim that as the truth.
Greenville joins 18 other cities across the state as being designated a cool city by the Sierra Club. It's the first city in Eastern Carolina to achieve "cool city" status. As proof of Greenville's earth conscious efforts, city leaders unveiled a hybrid vehicle as part of the fire-rescue's fleet.
The cool cities program is based on local mayors signing the U.S. mayors climate protection agreement. The main objective is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by seven percent by 2012.
