The stagnant weather pattern responsible for dry and mild conditions will move offshore Friday allowing warm and moist air to surge into eastern North Carolina. There will be a 20% to 30% risk of showers Friday that will increase to a 50% risk over the weekend. Most of the weekend will remain free of rain but there will be an ever present risk of a shower at anytime. Despite the clouds, high temperatures will reach the middle to upper 70s Friday and lower 80s both Saturday and Sunday. The unsettled weather pattern will continue into early next week.
