NOTE: 24 years ago today Hurricane Floyd caused massive flooding as more than 11 inches of rain fell in our area.
High pressure to our west and Hurricane Lee about 300 miles to our east will give us another breezy day today on north winds. Some of the clouds associated with Lee may once again filter our sunshine, high temperatures will be a couple of degrees higher than yesterday.
During the day on Sunday it should be dry but a weak low pressure area will likely give us showers late Sunday night into Monday.
High pressure will then build into our area on Tuesday and should dominate our weather the rest of next week with plenty of sunshine each day with near normal temperatures.
