GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - As air flows in off the Atlantic, skies will have a tropical appearance Saturday. The partly sunny skies will give way to periods of showers and storms which will roam in from the south and southeast. Temperatures will be mild to start the day with mid 60s thanks to higher humidity. Saturday will see temps peak in the low 80s between scattered showers. This will be enough heat to pop some showers up into storms, so if you hear thunder, get indoors.

Skies will turn mostly sunny by Sunday, breaking the stretch of rain before we start the upcoming work week. Highs will continue their upward climb, reaching the mid 80s Sunday afternoon. Sunshine will again be present early Monday before a cold front arrives in the evening. While this front will not have much cooler air behind it, it may trigger a few thunderstorms Monday evening. The rest of the week is looking warm to hot with 80s turning into 90s for highs later in the week.
