High pressure over the New England states helped keep a steady northerly flow across eastern North Carolina overnight allowing temperature to drop below freezing for many inland areas. The north to northeast winds will let up during the day, but the cold air is in place and despite full sunshine we’ll see highs only in the low to mid 50s.

Not as cold tonight with lows ranging from the mid 30s inland to mid 40s near the coast. Then Sunday will bring increasing clouds as a system approaches from the west. Expect a warmer day with highs ranging through the low to mid 60s.

Cloudy with a chance of showers late Sunday night into early Monday morning, a few showers may linger for the Monday morning commute, but expect decreasing clouds through the day.

The rest of the week is looking dry, as of now, with temperatures returning to normal by the end of the week.
