FORECAST DISCUSSION

Monday
With the cold front that crossed the area Sunday continuing its way south, skies will start partly to mostly sunny for eastern Carolina. This increased sunshine will give us a slight boost in temps, going from Sunday's mid 70s to near 80°. A northeasterly breeze will keep a steady flow of cooler air going over the region.

Tuesday & Wednesday
While Tuesday will start out with sunshine for some, everyone will be receiving rain drops by the late afternoon to evening hours. A strong cold front will approach the region from the west, bringing with it heavy downpours and occasional thunderstorms. With the rain arriving Tuesday night, the cold front will not cross the area until Wednesday, leading to prolonged showers through the middle of the work week. Highs will still hover in the low 80s due to a southerly flow of warm air. The front is expected to slowly move offshore late Wednesday night.

Thursday, Friday & the Weekend
With a stalled cold front just offshore, we may start Thursday with a few scattered showers, particularly towards the coast. The rain shouldn't last all day as skies will slowly clear in the afternoon. Highs will be about 5° cooler for most areas, only reaching the mid to upper 70s all the way through the weekend. Cloud cover will recede little by little until we are left with mostly sunny skies by Saturday and Sunday.

<TROPICAL UPDATE

Tropical Wave
A tropical wave will be moving from the deep Atlantic towards the Caribbean through the weekend. The wave has a 90% chance of strengthening to a tropical storm as it moves westward over the next 5 days. The next name on the list is Matthew.
