Cloudy skies are persisting over eastern North Carolina today as an upper level low pressure system crosses to our south. Fortunately, we're able to tap into some of the rain associated with it! Friday's system is expected to bring less than a half inch of rain to most reas of our state, with isolated neighborhoods (especially aroung Fayetteville , Lumberton and southeastern NC)seeing approximately three-quarters of an inch.
Saturday we'll have a change in the upper air weather pattern which will contribute to us warming up a little for the weekend. We'll still have cloudy skies with drizzle or light showers possible saturday, and an approaching cold front sunday will bring another opportunity for measurable rain Sunday.
Highs Saturday are expected to range from the mid to upper 50s in the Triangle and near 60 for the Sandhills and Down East of I-95 (Wilson / Goldsboro areas).
Enjoy the rain and have a good weekend
