Meteorologist Madeline Evans’ First Warning Forecast

Chris will continue to linger off of the NC coast on Tuesday. Most of us will see sunshine again tomorrow with clouds and a few showers along the Outer Banks. Highs will warm into the mid-to-upper 80s tomorrow with humidity building back in.

A cold front is set to move in on Wednesday. It will increase our chances for showers and storms but will also push Chris off of and up the East Coast. As Chris exits, wave action and rip currents will relax. Highs will remain in the mid to upper 80s for the second half of the work week and rain chances will start to build back in.

Wednesday night we will see a 30% chance of some pop up storms as the front moves through. Thursday we will see a 20% chance of some showers and then will dry out in time for Friday.

Tonight: Mainly Clear. Lows in the upper 60s. Winds: NE 5-15

Tomorrow: Mostly Sunny, Warmer. Highs in the upper 80s. Winds: NE 5-15
