As advertised…yesterday had some mixed temperatures. There was a big difference between the inland and coastal cities.
I don’t believe that it made it up to 74 in Kill Devil Hills, but I’m checking on that. Regardless, today we’ll see similar weather. Highs will be just a bit warmer. We’ll see temps near 60 along the shore, mid-upper 60s in the metro, and it will warm to the mid-upper 70s inland.
During the afternoon we’ll see the sea breeze kick-in along with a wind shift line. Winds will be variable at 5-10mph, but will be more easterly during the afternoon. So some temperatures near the shore will cool down to the mid 50s. We’ll be dry again today. Then tomorrow the wind-shift/trough will push back north. This will give us some spotty showers during the afternoon. For now I’ve kept the chance for rain at 20%, but I may have to raise it. Highs will be a little warmer, but will be fairly mixed again. On Friday we’ll have a different setup. Winds will be strong out of the south. They’ll be strong enough to stop the sea-breeze. Therefore highs will be in the upper 70s across much of the region. We’ll probably see some 80s inland. On Saturday a cold front will move through early. This will give us a few showers into the early morning, and then we’ll dry out. Highs will be in the upper 60s Saturday. We’ll be dry and cool on Sunday. Highs will be in the mid 50s.
A big area of low pressure will develop over the Midwest next Monday. It will move through northern Virginia. This will give us a better chance for rain along with some thunderstorms. A few showers could linger on into Tuesday.
