Charlie’s First Alert Forecast: Warmer temps today ahead of tonight’s rain

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) – Rain showers tonight will be clear of the coast by sunrise Monday. Until then, half an inch to an inch of rain is expected to come down over Eastern NC. Gusty winds ahead of the main rain line will fall short of the severe weather threshold, however the shift in wind direction will take temperatures from the upper 60s Sunday and drop them down in the mid 40s through the day. Morning cloud cover will exit before noon, and a 10 to 20 mph breeze out of the north will make the mid 40s feel like the upper 30s.

Temperatures will drop into the low to mid 20s Monday night and Tuesday night, creating some of the colder nights we’ve seen over the past few years. Highs on Tuesday will likely stay below the 40° mark and even though the breeze will come in at a slightly relaxed 6 to 12 mph, it will put wind chills in the low to mid 30s.

After the low 20s greet us Wednesday morning, temperatures will gradually rise through the rest of the work week. Skies will be partly to mostly sunny with highs in the mid 40s Wednesday, the low 50s Thursday and Friday. Rain showers will return by next Saturday and Sunday.


Rain before sunrise then clouds thin through the day. High of 46. Wind: N 15 G 20.


Sunny and cold. High 36. Wind NE 5-10. Low 20
