While rain will certainly not fall at all times, any time will be fair game for a shower or storm to pop from the thickly humid air. In between rain action: intervals of steamy daytime sun will aid temperatures in spiking toward or into the 80s.
Your weekend is shaping up to be pleasant and mostly dry; however, a front will bring a passing shower or storm Saturday night. Storm chances will be a hair lower - 30% at best - and the overall coverage and amounts of rain will probably less.
A wavy front will focus chances for showers and even a marginal risk for severe storms between Saturday and Monday. A 72-hour wash-out? No! But these rain and storm odds may help you plan: 50% Saturday, 10% Saturday night, 30% Sunday, 70% Sunday night, and 50% Monday.
Easter Sunday and more so Monday will have shower and storm chances: 50% Sunday, 20% Sunday night, and 80% Monday. Hopefully, unfavorable timing and / or marine air will save us from severe storms, but you will want to stay alert in case they form.
high pressure ridge remains on-track to squash rain-clouds over the Cape Fear Region this weekend, so your “weather grades” for all kinds of great outdoor social distancing activities like gardening and jogging will stay in B or A-territory.
