A winter storm warning goes into effect at 7 a.m. Friday for Beaufort, Dare, mainland Hyde, Martin, Tyrrell and Washington counties. A winter storm advisory goes into effect at 7 a.m. Friday for the rest of Eastern Carolina. The threats are snow, sleet and freezing rain.
As our winds shift to the southwest, temperatures will jump from the mid 80s to the mid 90s by Tuesday and Wednesday. Monday's temperatures will hit the low 90s inland with the coast staying slightly cooler due to a sea breeze setting up over the area in the afternoon. The sea breeze could lead to a few spotty showers and storms, however inland areas will remain dry.
Tuesday and Wednesday will see the temperature rise continue with highs topping out in the mid 90s. There are storms planned later in the week, but conditions will stay mostly sunny through Wednesday.
