Dustin’s First Alert Forecast: Dreary & drizzle conditions end today; Sunshine returns this weekend
Clouds start to break up as we go into the weekend
GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - After a week in the clouds and cooler than average temperatures, this pattern will finally break and sunshine will come back this weekend. A stationary front has been the main culprit of this forecast this past week. Most areas inland may see a few sprinkles here or there, but most coastal areas today will see more clouds than sun, as a few isolated showers are possible. Temperatures stay in the mid 70s overnight lows in the low 60s.
Saturday will begin calm and not as overcast for inland areas, but a few more clouds will hang tough for costal communities, as the front will eventually start to exit the area. Sunday features lots of sunshine for most of the ENC area, as a few fair weather clouds possible. Highs are forecasted to stay in the upper 70s and temperatures fall to the upper 50s to low 60s.
Next week, temperatures stay in the upper 70s to near 80° as daytime highs and a good deal of sunshine continues for the first week of October, as rain chances are limited until we get to the end of the week. Showers chances are forecasted for Thursday and Friday, as a few areas could see a few rain drops, but not a complete washout.
As for other tropical activity, Tropical Storm Philippe is forecasted to stay well out to sea through the weekend, while slowly weakening to a remnant low by early next week. Tropical Storm Rina is also a tropical storm and is also forecasted to weaken by next week. Both storms pose no concern to the ENC area.
