GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - The pattern of partly to mostly sunny skies will hold over Saturday and Sunday. Rain chances will hold at 20% as the easterly winds push moisture over the area. Highs will remain well above average, holding near the 80° mark through the weekend. Overnight lows will fall to the low 60s.

The warmer-than-average high temperatures will stay in the low 80s on Monday before cooler air arrives Tuesday. Highs on Tuesday and Wednesday will fall to the low 70s, about ten degrees cooler than the weekend yet still about three to five degrees above average. The flow of cooler air will accelerate thanks to a broad area of low pressure moving closer to the Outer Banks. Winds will blow in at 10 to 20 mph sustained with gusts reaching up to 30 to 35 mph out of the northeast. Coastal flooding is possible from Tuesday through Thursday due to the persistent northeast winds. Temperatures will come back closer to average with upper 60s and low 70s likely for the 2nd half of the week. Rain drops from the low will reach the coast later in the week with the heaviest rain arriving by the following weekend.
