This Weekend

A weak cold front will stall near our area Saturday. This will lead to a few afternoon showers and storms with highs in the upper 80s to near 90. Saturday night lows will reach the low 70s. Sunday’s rain chances will be a little lower, but not zero. Highs Sunday will be near 90.

Next Week

High pressure will try to build into the area to start the week. This will slowly limit our widespread rain chances while increasing high temperatures. Highs next week will average in the low 90s and morning temperatures will average in the lower 70s. The pattern will be fairly consistent for August with a 20 to 30 percent possibility of afternoon showers and thunderstorms each day.

Flash Food Warnings were issued for Duplin County as roads were flooded by up to 5 inches of rain in one hour Friday evening. Several roads were closed included a section of I-40. Pictured above is the result of an afternoon thunderstorm over Greenville as Memorial Blvd saw high water partially covering a turn lane. High humidity and a slow moving front lead to the unusually high rain amounts.
