GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - A disturbance over and east of Florida is moving northward and will lift our humidity levels Monday and bring a chance of showers and storms. The chance you find rain overhead at some point Monday is up to 50%. Highs will reach the upper 80s to near 90 around those showers. A south or southwest breeze will blow at 10 to 15 mph with some higher gusts along the coast.

The rest of the week will feature a weak front fading away over us Tuesday with a 40% chance you find some rain during the afternoon. Otherwise, heat will build by midweek. Mid 90s are possible for Wednesday and Thursday with a heat index reaching triple digits.

Another front arrives Thursday night or Friday bringing our next chance of organized storms. Timing of this front will be an important factor to determine how much rain we get. A late night or early morning frontal passage will decrease our rain chance.
