GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - The high pressure system that has kept us dry and mostly sunny will pull away from the East today, allowing clouds to slowly move in. Temperatures will come up a few degrees thanks to a shifting breeze, turning from the northeast to the southeast. Wind speeds today will be light, staying in the 4 to 8 mph range for inland areas while the coast sees a 7 to 12 mph breeze. Highs will reach the mid to upper 70s today, near our seasonal average.

The rain will arrive Thursday morning and while the heaviest rain will taper off in the afternoon, the rain won’t completely come to an end until the front clears the coast early Friday morning. The threat of thunderstorms is still present, however our chance of severe weather is low thanks to a weakening of the front prior to its arrival. Highs Thursday will hit the mid 70s despite the rain, however cooler weather is on the way for Friday.

Another area of high pressure will trail the cold front, increasing the wind out of the north and cooling our temps for Friday and the upcoming weekend. The high pressure system will provide the East with plentiful sunshine, so if you are itching for outdoor weather, the weekend is looking splendid. High temperatures will range between the low to mid 70s with overnight lows near the 50° mark.
