St Patty's Day Forecast
Eastern Carolina -

Some clouds and fog will make it feel like we are in the "Emerald Isle" itself today. Expect highs at or slightly below seasonable average and a chance at seeing a rainbow in the next few days.

The weather system that gave us 80° highs Saturday is now ushering in 60° temperatures down from Virgina. Cooler conditions today will be accompanied by a northeasterly wind, clouds and fog.

A few light rain showers will move in overnight tonight, enhancing the cloud cover. Sunday rain is likely, especially for the morning commute.

Showers clear out in time for the first day of spring, Wednesday. Then temperatures dive to the 50's for the end of the work week.
