Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast

We'll have a better chance overnight and Sunday morning for showers and storms as a warm front lifts over the area. This will bring the chance of strong to severe storms, mainly after midnight. The best chance for severe weather will be in Eastern North Carolina, but we could also see an isolated severe storm here on the Southside. The Storm Prediction Center has most of the area under a level 1 for severe weather, which means and isolated severe storm is possible. The biggest threat will be damaging wind gusts. Expect some drizzle and patchy fog as well. Temperatures will stay fairly steady in the 50s overnight and then warm to the mid to upper 70s on Sunday. Some folks in North Carolina may even reach the 80 degree mark. It will be breezy with winds out of the southwest at 15-20, gusts up to 30 mph. A cold front will cross the area Sunday night with a slight chance for showers and storms.

Much cooler on Monday. We'll start the day with some clouds, followed by some clearing as the day progresses. Highs will warm to the low 60s. A bit warmer on Tuesday with highs in the upper 60s under a nice mix of clouds and sunshine.

We'll warm up again on Wednesday, with highs in the mid 70s. Most of Wednesday is looking dry, with increasing rain and storm chances late. Expect showers and storms overnight and into the day Thursday.
