Wednesday, May 9th 6:45am.. An area of high pressure will moving across the region will give another day of sunshine to the island today. Clouds will be on the increase early tomorrow as the first of 2 systems approach. The first system, an area of low pressure, which has already developed near Cape Hatteras will move NE into NS Thursday afternoon then northward across the island with rain developing by afternoon. The second system will be a cold front approaching from the NW. This front will sweep across the island near dawn on Friday morning. Clouds and showers will accompany this feature as well. Sunshine returns Friday afternoon as the front moves away and high pressure builds in.
