Early weekend rain possible but Easter should be dry - WFLA News Channel 8

More weekend rain before dry Easter Sunday

Updated:

While sunshine dominated Thursday's weather, clouds and eventually rain will return to central North Carolina Friday and Saturday.

After a day of chilly temperatures in the 50s yesterday, Thursday warmed up with sunshine and highs in the 60s.  The Triangle made it up to 64 while Fayetteville made it up to 67, both still below the normal high this time of year of 73.

Overnight lows Thursday into Friday will still be cold, but not freezing cold like Wednesday and Thursday morning.  Friday morning lows will make it down to the mid and upper 30s.

Skies will become mostly cloudy on Friday and with the increased clouds temperatures will remain cool with highs near 60. 

Low pressure will move up the Atlantic coast Friday night and move out to sea late Saturday.  The storm system will spread some rain into central North Carolina Friday night and mainly into Saturday morning.  The best chances will be southeast of the Triangle with less of a chance towards Virginia.  Lows Friday night will be in the upper 40s.  With the chance of rain and clouds, Saturday will remain cool with highs in the lower 60s.

Easter Sunday is looking pleasant, with partly to mostly sunny skies and a high around 70.  For sunrise services, temperatures Sunday morning will start out in the middle to upper 40s.  Sunrise on Sunday is 6:36 a.m.

Easter Monday will be partly sunny with highs staying in the lower 70s.  A cold front could give us a few showers by Tuesday afternoon with a mixture of clouds and some sun.  Highs on Tuesday will be 72.  Wednesday is looking good with partly cloudy skies and highs in the middle 70s.
