Dominic Brown's Live VIPIR Forecast

Mostly cloudy and windy on Easter, then warmer next week....As we move through our Easter Sunday, our weather will be a bit unsettled as an area of low pressure continues to spin off our coast. This setup will keep a few more clouds around during the day and even the possibility of some light rain and drizzle in our forecast. Communities in NE North Carolina and parts of Southside will have the best chance of seeing any light rain or drizzle Sunday, but the entire day does not look like a washout for anyone at this time. High temperatures will be in the upper 50s and lower 60s, but because of a strong NE wind, which will gust between 35 and 40 mph, it will feel a bit cooler during the day.

The area of low pressure will move farther out to see by Monday, allowing most areas to see sunshine as an area of high pressure moves in. Temperatures will warm into the mid 60s by afternoon.  Temperatures will rise into the mid 70s by Tuesday. We'll also see our next chance of rain by then.

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy. Areas of Light Rain/Drizzle (30%). Low temperatures in the mid and upper 40s. Winds: NE 10-20 mph.

Sunday: Mostly Cloudy. Areas of Light Rain/Drizzle possible (20-30%). Breezy. Highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s. Winds: NE 15-25 mph, gusts to 35.

Monday: Sun & Clouds. A Little Warmer. High temperatures in the mid 60s. Winds: N/NE 10-15 mph.
