More warm weather ahead….If you’ve enjoyed the nice, warm temperatures we’ve seen over the past few days, get ready for even more.  We’re tracking high temperatures on Thursday through the weekend in the low to mid 80s.  Overnight lows will won’t be quite as chilly though. We’ll see lows in the 60s over the next few mornings in most areas.

As for sky cover, we’re expecting a mix of sun and clouds on Thursday and Friday. A disturbance off the North Carolina could produce a few showers for some of our Outer Banks communities late Thursday into Friday.

Then, early next week, we’ll be watching the forecast closely.  Cloud cover will likely increase ahead of a developing area of low pressure that could also bring us rain.  Highs will cool back into the 70s by then.

Tonight: Stars and Clouds. Patchy Fog Possible. Mild. Overnight low temperatures in the low to mid 60s. Winds: E 5-10 mph.

Thursday: Sun and Cloud Mix. Warm. High temperatures in the lower 80s. Winds: NE-E 5-10 mph.

Friday: Sun and Cloud Mix. Isolated Showers Possible in NC (20%).  Another Warm Day. High temperatures in the low to mid 80s. Winds: E 5-10 mph.
