GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - High pressure just off the Mid Atlantic will keep things dry for the balance of this first weekend of summer. The National Weather Service has raised the rip current risk to moderate for the Outer Banks for Sunday for all but south facing beaches.

Tonight, clear skies and calm winds will help cool us back down to the mid 60s, with some fog likely. Hyde, Beaufort and Pitt Counties should be aware of a smoky smell from the Hyde County fire. That early morning fog Sunday will burn away as the sun rises, with afternoon highs under partly to mostly sunny skies warming to the upper 80s along with some increase in humidity vs Saturday. Highs along the coast will be in the lower 80s with east winds.

A cold front will head this way by Monday night which could mean storms Monday evening and most likely into Tuesday. The front will briefly knock temperatures down again but they’ll climb once again through the end of the week.

Tonight

Clear but with some fog developing overnight. Lows in the mid 60s.
