A strong cold front swept the showers and most of the clouds out of eastern North Carolina by late Tuesday afternoon. The clouds will dissipate overnight as cooler air works into the area. Overnight lows will dip into the middle to upper 30s under mostly clear skies. Patchy light frost is likely over some inland communities as winds become light. Sunny skies will return Wednesday as highs top out in the lower to middle 60s. Much warmer air will arrive on Thursday as most locations hit the middle 70s. Warm weather is expected to continue into the weekend with highs well into the 70s to lower 80s.
