Light rain will continue to impact the area this afternoon. Showers will be light with better rain chances tonight. Highs today will only warm into the mid 40s with a calm easterly wind. Highs through the weekend show some improvement with the mercury hitting the 60s on Sunday.
After a brief period of sleet, most precipitation from the morning quickly turned over to all rain. Wet roadways will be a concern this afternoon as cloud cover will keep evaporation at a minimum. During the evening commute, more rain is expected to move back into eastern Carolina. Freezing conditions are not anticipated overnight and into the weekend.
