Wednesday & Thursday
A cold front will finally exit the region before stalling just offshore. This will lead to scattered showers and a stray thunderstorms through Wednesday. An isolated strong thunderstorm will also be possible Wednesday afternoon. Highs will reach the low 80s due to a southerly flow of warm air. The front is expected to slowly move further offshore over night, with a few lingering showers over the area Thursday.
Friday & the Weekend
With the stalled cold front right off our coast, we may start Friday with a stray shower, particularly towards the coast. Highs will be about 5° cooler for most areas, only reaching the mid to upper 70s all the way through the weekend. Lows will dip to 50s for inland areas. Cloud cover will recede, until we are left with mostly sunny skies by Saturday and Sunday.
A tropical wave will be moving from the south-central Atlantic towards the Caribbean through the weekend. The wave has a high (90%) chance of strengthening to a tropical storm as it moves westward over the next 48 hours. The next name on the list is Matthew.
Tuesday Night: Cloudy skies, with a few showers possible. Lows in the upper 60s with winds out of the south at 4 to 8 mph. Rain chance: 30%.
Wednesday: Mostly cloudy skies with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs will reach the low 80s with a south breeze at 5 to 10 mph. Rain chance: 60%.
Wednesday Night: Showers slowly decrease. Lows in the upper 60s with winds out of the southwest at 3 to 6 mph.
Winds will blow out of the south at 10 to 15 knots on Wednesday. Offshore swells will run 3-5 feet. Waves heights will be at 1 to 2 feet on the Albemarle and Pamlico Sounds.
