Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast
Rain chances continue… The leftovers of Bonnie will slowly move along the North Carolina coastline today and tomorrow. Expect clouds with some sunshine breaking through. Showers will be scattered but an isolated heavy downpour or storm is possible. Most of the rain and the highest rainfall totals will be in NC, mainly south of the Albemarle Sound. Highs today and tomorrow will return to the upper 70s.
The remnants of Bonnie will move off of the East Coast on Friday as a cold front moves in from the west. We will see a mix of clouds with scattered showers and storms. Highs on Friday will warm slightly into the low 80s.
Rain chances will linger for the weekend as the cold front stalls across the Carolinas. Expect highs in the low to mid 80s this weekend.
