A new day ahead, cooler for most, with rain chances staying around for some. Happy Tuesday, North Carolina! A cold front is stalled along the coast today, this will be the main area for storm chances this afternoon and evening. I expect partly to mostly cloudy skies today; highs will be cooler in the low-mid 80s for most of the state. A few showers are possible this morning; otherwise dry for most, but a few storms are likely this afternoon and evening across Southeastern NC and the coast. I don't expect everyone to see them, but Eastern NC desperately needs rain.
