GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - Partly sunny skies with very warm temperatures this Sunday will give way to another relatively comfortable overnight through sunrise Monday, but look for some patchy fog tonight. While the rip current risk from Cape Hatteras southward has been under a moderate risk through Sunday, the National Weather Service has decreased it to a LOW risk for Monday.
Increasing heat and dewpoints. but mainly dry weather will govern over the next several days as a sprawling ridge of High pressure will be in control. Memorial Day will start with some early AM patchy fog that quickly gives way to sunshine. There’ll be a few scattered clouds during the afternoon but it will stay dry. Highs in Greenville and most areas away from the coast will top out near 90. it will get even hotter Tuesday through Thursday, with highs in the 90s
The presence of the high pressure system will help keep a lid on thunderstorm activity through Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon.. but by Thursday, the high will exit and storms will start to develop in the early afternoon. Temperatures will be in the low to mid 90s and the weak front that sparks the storms will slow down as it crosses the state. This will keep rain in the forecast through Friday, slowly cooling us down to the 80s. The weak front will dissipate over the weekend, keeping a slight chance of rain in play for Saturday while Sunday looks dry.
