Expect to wake up to seasonably cool temperatures in the mid-50s with light winds Saturday. The mercury should slowly climb to the upper 60s with winds from the south at 10-20 mph with gusts to 25. On Sunday, the region should see highs in the upper 60s under partly cloudy skies.

A high-pressure system centered over South Carolina and Georgia should take control of eastern North Carolina's weather Sunday evening through Tuesday, holding rain chances down. After a low around 50 on Sunday, a warmup into the mid-70s is expected for Monday's high.
