GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - Air Quality Alerts have expired across all Eastern NC counties. We’ll still have a bit of a smoky haze to wrap up the week, but smoke levels will be down a bit from the last couple days.

Highs will climb to the 80° mark this afternoon under sun filled skies with light northwest winds. A little haze from the wildfires will remain over the area, however improvement is expected through the weekend. Warmer temperatures will build in over the next two days as highs reach into the low to mid 80s Saturday and the mid to upper 80s Sunday. Both days will bring mostly clear skies with overnight lows dipping to around 60°.

A cold front will approach the area on Monday with scattered showers and a few thunderstorms looking likely. Muggy mid to upper 80s may support a few strong storms Monday afternoon. The heavier the rain, the more relief we’ll see with regards to air quality. The showers chances could extend all the way through next Thursday, however it will come with the heat and humidity we’ve been lacking so far this June.
