GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - The cold air didn’t make a clean sweep across the area today, allowing temperatures to return to the upper 50s and low 60s south of HWY 264. Tonight, we’ll see the cold air continue its slow path over the region. Temperatures will be down in the mid to upper 20s early Sunday morning with a light northeasterly breeze keeping the fog to a minimum. Sunny skies will hold as a high pressure system slides towards us. Afternoon highs will reach into the upper 40s with a 5 to 10 mph breeze out of the northeast.

Cloud cover will thicken late Sunday night ahead of rain showers Monday. A coastal low will get caught along as passing front around lunchtime Monday. This will lead to spotty rain during the morning commute, moderate showers during the middle of the day, and decreasing drops by sunset. The rain will be accompanied by highs in the low to mid 50s.

We’ll hang on to the heat after Monday’s front, holding in the 50s Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday before dipping into the low 60s by Friday. Leftover cloud cover early Tuesday will melt away in the afternoon. Skies will be mostly sunny from Wednesday through the start of the weekend.

Monday
