GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - A slow moving front will ease southward over our area tonight and produce some downpours with thunder and lightning before fading away late tonight. Some of the downpours may produce localized flooding, especially over urban areas.

A weak disturbance riding along the front may cause clouds and rain to reform over the area Sunday. A northeast wind will keep temperatures below average Sunday as well with many places unable to reach 80 for a high.

Drier weather will return to the area Monday and Tuesday as the boundary stalls far enough south to keep us dry. A few coastal rain drops will be possible both days before the rain pushes north and inland Wednesday. All rain is needed as most of the area remains under a moderate to severe drought.

Tonight

Mostly cloudy with showers and storms growing southeastward. Low of 68. Wind: SW/NE 10-15. Rain chance: 70%

Sunday

Cloudy with periods of rain. Wind: NE 10-20. Rain chance: 70%

Monday

Mostly sunny with a light breeze and highs around 84. Wind: NE 5-10.

Tuesday

Mostly sunny with a high of 88. Wind: S 5-10. Rain chance: 20%

Wednesday

Mostly cloudy with chance for PM T-showers. Wind: SW10 G15. Rain chance: 40%
