GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - Mostly cloudy skies will be greeting you on your Sunday as temps remain in the upper 50s.

A cold front will approach the area this morning. Most backyards will see cloudy skies and minimal showers, averaging well below a quarter of an inch for those along and north and east of Interstate 40. Communities closer to the Crystal Coast will likely see a few drops, barely a trace in the rain buckets. Highs will warm into the mid to upper 50s as slightly warmer air moves in.

Colder air arrives late Sunday night, clearing skies and delivering gentle breezes to the area. The light and variable breezes along with clearing skies may set the stage for a rapid drop in temperatures due to radiational cooling. Some backyards may drop into the lower to mid 30s Sunday night through Tuesday night so please be sure to bundle up!

A vigorous low pressure system is forecast to develop across the Central US early this week increasing the odds for possible severe weather across the Southern US by Tuesday and Wednesday. As of now, there is a risk for showers on Thursday in Eastern NC. The severe weather risk is very low, but will closely be monitored

DROUGHT MONITOR: As of Thursday’s (12/8) update, most Eastern NC counties continue to grapple with abnormally dry conditions to moderate drought. The minimal rain over the next few days will lead to little change in our soil moisture, extending the duration of the drought through winter. Multiple communities in Eastern NC are running several inches below normal for the year.


Mostly cloudy skies with late day raindrops. High of 58. Wind NE 10-15. Rain chance 20%.


Mostly sunny and breezy. Near freezing overnight. High of 53. Wind NE 7-15
