The stagnant weather pattern will continue across eastern North Carolina for the next two days. A stationary front across the coastal area continued to develop showers east of Highway 17 on Monday. The front will dissipate but a cold front over eastern Tennessee will move slowly east into western North Carolina late Tuesday bringing more showers to the area. The front will move offshore late Wednesday and that should bring an end to the rain. A stronger cold front will arrive late Friday ushering in the coolest air of the fall season for the weekend.
