Meteorologist Kristy Steward's First Warning Forecast

Happy Saturday night! Spring officially begins Sunday at 11:33 AM and it's starting off pleasant for us. The Vernal Equinox signals the start to more daylight hours than nighttime hours.


A cold front tonight will cool temperatures down to the mid 50s early Sunday morning. We could see some isolated showers falling, mainly across the Outer Banks and Albemarle Sound, tonight into early Sunday morning. Sunday will be mostly dry and cooler. Highs reach the mid 60s. Expect a mix of sun and clouds throughout the day.

High pressure brings us lots of sunshine Monday. Highs remain in the mid 60s. We climb to around 70° Tuesday. Clouds begin to increase ahead of an approaching system. This system will bring us unsettled weather the second half of the week.

Behind the cold front, temperatures cool down to the mid 60s for Friday. Our workweek ends mostly dry. Then a second, reinforcing cold front behind the first one cools temperatures down to the upper 50s Saturday. It could also fire up a few more isolated rain showers as we start next weekend.
