Friday
Temperatures will begin the day well above average in the upper 60s/low 70s with patchy fog through 8am. With the stalled front over the area, the chance for scattered showers and a possible thunderstorm will stay with us. Highs will be in the lower 80s with southwesterly winds around 10 mph. Rain chances will be around 40% on Friday.

The Weekend
The upper level low will ease a little farther east which will shift the best rain chance to the coast with lower chances inland. Skies will be partly sunny. Highs will be around 80 inland and upper 70s where most clouds will persist along the Outer Banks.
