Jim Duncan’s First Alert Forecast: Sunny but hot for Memorial Day weekend
Mostly sunny skies here for the rest of the holiday weekend
GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - The return of sunshine this Saturday was accompanied by comfortably low dewpoints, and High pressure will continue to build over the region from the west, keeping a stretch of sunshine in the forecast through the rest of the Memorial Day weekend and into at least the middle of next week. The downside... it’s going to get hotter and more humid over the next several days. With respect to rain, a weak sea breeze front did try to spark a few isolated storms closer to the coast Saturday afternoon, but trends for those will diminish through the rest of the weekend.
Those lower dewpoints (translation comfortable humidity levels) will set the stage for a cool night into Sunday morning, with lows near 60, so enjoy before the hot weather and increasing heat index levels return.
Stay alert for continued rip current risk along portions of the Outer Banks Sunday.
