GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - We’ve been watching storms riding a cold front Friday. Though we had a Watch in effect, no strong storms became a problem. Torrential downpours did move through over and over but rain totals stayed below a half inch across ENC. The highest wind gusts were in our southern counties but now winds are quieting to about 10mph for the overnight.

The front will slow as it moves over the Atlantic, keeping a few showers in play for the coast Saturday morning. Inland, the sky will clear by lunchtime and sunshine will dominate the rest of the long weekend. Highs will through the 80s through Memorial Day on Monday. Beaches will likely be a popular spot this weekend but be sure to check any flags in the area as rip currents could be high.

Saturday

Partly cloudy and warm with a few scattered storms over coastal counties early. High 84. Wind: SW 15. Rain chance 30%.

Sunday

Mostly sunny and warm. High 87. Wind: SW 5.

Memorial Day

Mostly sunny and warm. High 86. Wind: SE 10-15.

Tuesday

Mostly sunny with a high of 88. Wind: W-S 5.

Wednesday

Sunny and warm with a high of 89. Wind: S 5-10.
