It will be another hot and humid day across eastern North Carolina on Friday. Highs will be close to 90 degrees in most locations. A few thunderstorms will develop during the afternoon and evening as the atmosphere becomes more unstable ahead of a cold front approaching from Virginia. The front will stall near the Virginia border by Saturday causing additional showers and storms as we head into the weekend. An average of 1 to 2 inches of rain can be expected between Friday and Sunday. There will be locally heavier amounts.
