GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - The cloud cover that spread from the coast to Raleigh today will be gone by midnight tonight. This will set up a much sunnier Saturday, however temperatures will stay cool. For reference, average highs this time of year range in the low 60s (60°-63°) and we will end up short of that range, topping out in the upper 50s. Winds will shift through the day thanks to a passing high pressure system, starting out of the northwest and finishing out of the southwest.

Warmer weather will return on Sunday as southwesterly winds push the mercury back up into the 70s. The warmth will come with rain as a second area of low pressure sweeps over the East this holiday weekend. The rain will move in after lunch and will pull away from the coast after midnight. About half an inch will fall over most communities, adding to the half inch to full inch many received early Friday morning.

Sky conditions will flip flop again, turning back to sunshine on Monday and Tuesday thanks to another area of high pressure cruising by. The sunshine will come with near average air temperatures over the two day stretch. More rain arrives late Wednesday and lingers into Thursday morning before we turn sunny for the following weekend.
