A cold front swept through eastern North Carolina late Tuesday bringing some showers. Rainfall amounts were generally light with most communities receiving less than a tenth of an inch. We could still see a few light showers or sprinkles early Wednesday but a drying trend is on the way. We should see plenty of sunshine by Wednesday afternoon as highs reach the lower 70s inland and upper 60s along the Outer Banks. More sunshine can be expected Thursday and Friday as high pressure continues to dominate our weather pattern. Another cold front will push into our area on Saturday producing more showers and thunderstorms. High temperatures will hit the lower to middle 70s each day through Friday. Shower activity on Saturday may hold some locations to the 60s.
