Dominic Brown's Live VIPIR Forecast

A return to spring-like weather this week....The area of low pressure that has controlled our weather over the past few days will move farther out to sea by Monday, allowing our weather to improve and for the sun to return. Now, on Monday morning, clouds will likely be around and there could be a few stray showers to start the day, especially over NE North Carolina. Otherwise, as we go through the day, expect a mix of sun and clouds. Highs will be in the low to mid 60s. Breezes will die down through the day, too. By morning, winds will be from the northeast at 15-20 mph. By afternoon and evening, the winds will subside from the northeast at 5-15 mph.

On Tuesday, temperatures will soar into the mid and upper 70s under partly cloudy skies. But a cold front will move in, giving way to a few showers and possibly a thunderstorm Tuesday evening. Temps will fall back into the upper 60s by the middle of the week. Then, next Friday, temps will warm back into the 70s with another chance of rain.

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy. Chance of Light Rain, mainly over NE NC (20%). Breezy. Lows in the upper 40s. Winds: NE 15-20 mph.

Monday: Sun & Clouds. Stray AM Shower (20%). A Little Warmer. Breezy. High temperatures in the low to mid 60s. Winds: N/NE 15-20 mph.

Tuesday: Partly Cloudy. Chance of Showers & Storms (30-40%). Warmer. Highs in the mid and upper 70s. Winds: SW 5-15 mph.
