GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - A warm front will lift through eastern NC Tuesday morning giving us a few showers to start the day. The clouds will break up after midday with highs climbing to 80° Tuesday afternoon. The unseasonably warm air will lock in through Thursday with highs both Wednesday and Thursday reaching the mid 80s inland with mid 70s on the coast. Typically our highs peak around 70° in early April.

A late week cold front will bring an end to the warmer air while bringing good rain chances to eastern NC as well. The front will move in Thursday night bringing widespread showers, along with an isolated thunderstorm. The front will likely stall out over the area Friday and Saturday with periods of rain likely both days. Highs will fall to the upper 50s both Friday and Saturday. Severe weather is unlikely.

We may get lucky for Easter Sunday with the raindrops moving south of the area as the sun rises around 6:45am. Upper 40s at sunrise will lift to the low 60s Easter afternoon with skies trending mostly sunny.
