A low pressure system will drag a cold front across the area on Sunday bringing some showers for the afternoon and evening. Temperatures will warm into the 70s and then begin to cool in the afternoon and evening behind the cold front. It will be a windy day. Isolated power outages are not out of the question due to fallen trees. A very slight chance for freezing precipitation late Sunday into Monday. Looks like the rain will move eastward before the colder air arrives. Just keeping a slight chance though. The areas we’ll be keeping an eye on include Southampton county in Virginia and Hertford, Northampton and Bertie county in North Carolina.

A colder day in store Monday, with highs in the upper 30s to lower 40s with breezy conditions. A chance for some evening showers Monday and into Tuesday morning. Near-normal temperatures for Wednesday with some sunshine.

Today: Partly to mostly cloudy. Chance of rain (60%). Windy and warm. Highs in the low to mid 70s. Winds: W/SW 15-25 mph, with higher gusts.

Tonight: Showers. Most of the rain will exit before temperatures drop too much, but keeping a slight chance to see a little freezing rain. Lows in the upper 30s. Breezy. N 15-20, with gusts up to 30 mph.
