GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - The cloud cover and chilly temperatures will stick around for Sunday with the addition of light rain showers coming along for the ride. A quarter to half an inch of rain is expected from start to finish Sunday, which will keep temperatures below average by about ten degrees. Highs will top out in the upper 40s after starting the day near the 40° mark.

Sunny weather returns Monday (of course...) which will help encourage a slow rise in temperatures. Temperatures in the mid 50s will greet us to start the week and top out in the mid 60s by Wednesday. Our next round of rain will likely show up after next weekend due to a series of high pressure systems keeping the moisture out. This will enhance the drought affecting our southern counties, specifically Duplin, Onslow, Jones, and Lenoir.

Sunday

Light rain likely with chilly temps. High of 48. Rain chance: 80%.

Monday

Sunny and breezy with a high of 53. Wind: NE 15 G 25.

Tuesday

Sunny with a high of 60. Wind: NE 5 - S 5.

Wednesday

Mostly sunny with a high of 65. Wind: NW 10.
