Ideal Weekend

The first full weekend of Spring cooperates with another round of above average temperatures Sunday. That being said, it will be a chilly start in the morning. High pressure is responsible for plenty of sunshine until late Sunday afternoon when clouds increase ahead of the next wet weather maker. Spotty light rain is possible late Sunday night and Monday morning. More consistent rain develops Monday afternoon and continues at night. Clouds and some lingering spotty rain may linger into Tuesday morning.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure moves overhead tonight and shifts off the coast Sunday promoting sunshine and progressively milder temperatures. However, tonight is chilly under clear skies and a diminishing wind. Frost is possible, especially in the deeper valleys.

Clouds increase late Sunday afternoon or evening as a compact low pressure center approaches from the west. The atmosphere moistens up Sunday night with spotty light rain possible. Steadier rain arrives Monday afternoon and Monday night as the low scoots on through and consolidates off the Carolina coast Tuesday. Colder air is briefly in tow and Tuesday is notably chilly. Some light rain may linger into Tuesday morning.

Sunshine returns Wednesday, but it stays a tad on the cool side. Thursday and Friday are delightful!
