Forecast Discussion: An area of low pressure will track along the North Carolina coast Saturday into Saturday night. There remains a low, 30% chance of development as the low passes by this weekend. While the system will likely not become a tropical storm, it will bring a healthy shot of rain to eastern North Carolina. Inland areas will likely see 1″ (give or take) of rainfall with locations east of highway 17 through the coast receiving 2-4″ of rainfall. Winds will gust to around 30 mph along the coast through the weekend.

Mum Fest is this weekend and rain chances for New Bern are heightened on Saturday in comparison to farther inland regions. Rain chances will be 80% Saturday and 30% Sunday with highs in the 70s.
