GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - With the passage of a cold front, we’re getting a couple chances at some rain here in Eastern Carolina. Additionally, temperatures will stay nearly ten degrees below normal through Tuesday afternoon. A few additional storms are possible, mainly in our Eastern and Southern counties, Tuesday morning with lots of dry hours to follow. An isolated shower chance remains in our Southern counties for Wednesday but most will stay rain-free that day.

Thursday will mark the start of a dry-stretch and temperatures will start to rise. Highs will return to the upper 80s and low 90s for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Rain chances stay low for Sunday and Monday but with the holiday weekend we will be watching the setup very closely. Right now, a couple of our more reliable forecast models seem to hold off on substantial rain until Tuesday. That being said, a forecast for a week out can certainly shift by enough hours to put a damper on our holiday so keep checking back for updates.

Tuesday

Scattered showers and storms with a high near 80. Wind: S 5. Rain chance: 40%

Wednesday

Partly sunny with slight chance of scattered PM storms and a high of 84. Wind: NE-SE 5. Rain chance: 30%

Thursday

Mostly sunny and warmer. High of 88. Wind S 5-10.

Friday

Mostly sunny and warm. High of 92. Wind S 5-10.

Saturday

Mostly sunny and hot with a high of 90. Wind: SW 10.
