Weak Bonnie to keep showers around through Wednesday......
While scattered showers remain in the forecast, the overall coverage and frequency of the rain will be somewhat diminished compared to what we've seen over the last few days. With humidity levels staying high, it will stay quite muggy with highs in the low 80s. Winds will blow out of the east to northeast at 7 to 15 mph.
Thursday & Friday
The chance of showers will decrease Thursday into Friday morning. A band of stronger showers will arrive late Friday as a cold front moves into the area, essentially kicking the remnants of Bonnie out to sea. While this will help remove one rain maker from the area, the front itself will stall just offshore, leading to a continued chance of showers through the weekend.
The remnants of Bonnie continue to move toward eastern Carolina, keeping the flow of moisture into our area going over the next day or two. The system has consistently lost strength and will continue to do so through Thursday. The threat of rip currents will remain high to moderate through Wednesday. The storm is expected to slowly track away from the area by Thursday.
Tuesday Night: Mostly cloudy with a few showers. Lows in the upper 60s with winds out of the east at 5 to 10 mph. Rain chance: 30%.
Wednesday: Staying mostly cloudy with scattered showers. The best rain chances will be over southern counties. Winds: East 7-12 mph. Rain chance: 40%.

Winds will be from the southeast at 7 to 15 knots by Wednesday. Swells will run from 3 to 5 feet offshore and 1 foot on the Albemarle and Pamlico Sounds.
