Happy Mother’s Day!

Today will be partly cloudy. We will have quite the temperature spread because of a stalled front. We could see highs anywhere from the 70s to near 90 again. Looks like the northern communities and near the coast will be the cooler ones. Shower and storm chances will remain low, but with our stalled front we do still have a chance especially late in the day. Just keeping a 25-30 percent chance. The best chance to see any wet weather with be the Eastern Shore.

Monday will be very similar temperature-wise. Expect a big temperature spread, with the coolest temperature in the 70s on the Eastern Shore and warmer temperatures for northeast North Carolina. We will have better chances to see afternoon showers and storms.

We will be entering a very summer-like pattern, with rain chances pretty much everyday next week. Keep that umbrella handy! The best chances will come midweek when an area of low pressure moves in. Temperatures will trend mainly in the upper 70s to mid 80s over the next week.
