GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - High pressure off to our west will remain strong enough to keep sunshine in the forecast through the rest of today, however an incoming cold front dropping in from the north will change our sky conditions by the middle of the week. Highs today will respond positively to the increased sunshine, rising into the upper 70s to low 80s. Overnight lows will again drift all the way down into the 50s, keeping humidity away for the time being.

A few more clouds will be present Tuesday, but even partly sunny skies will be enough to send highs back towards the mid 80s. A chance of rain will accompany the increase in cloud cover. The rain drops become more likely late Wednesday into Thursday as that’s when the front is expected to move across the region. The chance of severe weather is low with this passing front, even though a few thunderstorms may develop along the boundary as it passes. Highs will fall to the upper 70s Thursday and Friday thanks to a steady north-northeasterly breeze.

Our upcoming weekend is looking sunny and dry, pushing temperatures into the mid 80s. The tropics are also relatively quiet at this point with the only low being tracked by the NHC sitting near the Azores.
