A seasonably mild and dry pattern will continue across Eastern North Carolina through Saturday. Highs will range in the upper 50s to lower 60s while overnight lows will drop to near 40. The lack of rain continues to be a problem. During the month of November many areas east of Interstate 95 have had less than an inch of rainfall. The normal for November is over three inches in most of the area. This month continues a streak of several months extending back into last spring where rainfall has averaged below normal. There is little hope for significant rainfall through the weekend although a few light showers or sprinkles could occur on Thursday as another cold front pushes through the area. Next week will offer a dramatic change in the weather pattern as colder air finally arrives in our area. The arrival of colder air could be preceded by some scattered showers Sunday night or Monday.
