Shower chances will be increasing, particularly Sunday, as a cool front sets its sights on the region. The weather could remain a bit unsettled early next week.
FRIDAY FORECAST: Expect partly to mostly cloudy skies. A decaying thunderstorm complex has brought cloud cover to southeast North Carolina this afternoon. We've even see a few spotty light showers. Mostly cloudy skies and a few spot showers are possible this evening. Kickoff temperatures should be near 70 for high school football. Overnight lows will be in the mid 60's.
SATURDAY FORECAST: An approaching cold front / storm system will boost rain chances to 30% for Saturday and 50% for Saturday night. Showers and a few thunderstorm will be advancing from northwest to southeast. That means Bladen and Columbus counties will be first to see any showers - followed by the counties along the coast. Highs will be in the low 80's and lows in the mid 60's.
SUNDAY FORECAST: The cold front / storm system may linger enough for a continued 40% shower chance, especially early in the day. Otherwise, expect variable clouds and highs mainly in the lower 80s.
TROPICAL AREAS OF INTEREST:
- An area of disturbed weather in the southern Gulf of Mexico remains disorganized as of Friday evening, but it still has a small chance to organize into a tropical depression or storm in the next two to three days.
