We will close out the week on a warm but pleasant note before an area of low pressure imacts the region this weekend.

Friday: Patchy Fog; Partly Sunny & Warm; Still Not Too Humid

Highs: Upper 80s | Wind: E 5-10

Saturday: Mostly Cloudy, Breezy & Cooler; 40% Chance Of T-Showers

Highs: Around 80 | Wind: ENE 10-15+

Sunday: Mostly Cloudy; 30% Chance Of Showers

Highs: Low 80s | Wind: SSE 5-10

Once again this morning some locations will have to deal with patchy fog otherwise expect partly sunny skies and warm conditions. While it will be warm in the upper 80s the humidity remains low for this time of the year so it should remain rather comfortable. We have had to make changes regarding the weekend forecast with weather guidance now in agreement that an area of low pressure will develop near or just off the North Carolina coast and then drift northward along the coast over the weekend. The result will be a weekend that looks to feature more clouds than sunshine along with a 50 percent chance of thundershowers Saturday and a 30 percent chance of showers Sunday. Drier warmer and more humid weather will return Monday ahead of our next approaching cold front.

~ Have a good day!
