Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast

Rain chances will increase overnight ahead of our next storm system. Temperatures will rise into the 50s overnight as a wind out of the south and southwest picks up. Heavy rain and possible storms will move in after midnight. Some storms could be strong to severe, especially in North Carolina.

Rain early Tuesday, with drier conditions by noontime as the cold front slides off the coast. Temperatures will warm to the low 60s, but it will be windy. Skies will turn partly cloudy during the afternoon and mostly clear overnight. The clear skies will allow temperatures to fall to near freezing.

Finally, high pressure will take control of the weather on Wednesday and looks like we should get a nice, yet short break from the gloomy and wet weather. Skies will be partly cloudy with highs near 40.

Another warm up on Thursday, but more rain will come. Expect another storm system to move in with rain likely. Temperatures will warm to the mid 50s. A cold front will move in to end the work week with highs in the mid 50s and another chance for some showers. It will be on the windy side.

Drying out, but cooling down on Saturday with highs in the low 40s under mostly sunny skies. It will continue to be windy, so expect wind chills in the 30s! Clear skies and calm winds will allow temperatures to fall into the upper 20s overnight. Brr!

Not quite as cold on Sunday with highs in the upper 40s under mostly sunny skies.
