GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - Early morning fog will be present for some inland communities as air temperatures fall to our dew points overnight, the upper 50s. As the fog burns off, mid to high level cloud cover will return. Rain showers will show up around lunch and linger a few hours past sunset. About a quarter to half an inch of rain is expected with the heavier amounts projected to fall closer to the Virginia line. Highs will return to the low 70s in the afternoon as winds blow in out of the southwest.

Partly sunny skies make a brief return to the East on Thursday before the rain rolls back in late Friday night into Saturday morning. High temperatures will fall from the low 70s Wednesday to the mid 60s Thursday and the upper 50s Friday. Winds will pick up speed over the weekend as a low-pressure system pulls away from the New Jersey coast. Winds will blow in out of the northeast with the strongest winds present over the Outer Banks. Highs on both Saturday and Sunday will hit the upper 50s as skies remain partly to mostly cloudy.

DROUGHT MONITOR: As of the latest update (Thursday, 12/1), most Eastern NC counties continue to grapple with abnormally dry conditions to moderate drought. Any rain received over the next few days will be beneficial to our soil as this is an event that could have long-term impacts throughout Winter 2022-23.
