Skies will become mostly cloudy on Friday and with the increased clouds temperatures will remain cool with highs near 60. 

Low pressure will move up the Atlantic coast Friday night and move out to sea late Saturday.  The storm system will spread some rain into central North Carolina Friday night and mainly into Saturday morning.  The best chances will be southeast of the Triangle with less of a chance towards Virginia.  Lows Friday night will be in the upper 40s.  With the chance of rain and clouds, Saturday will remain cool with highs in the lower 60s.

Easter Sunday is looking pleasant, with partly to mostly sunny skies and a high around 70.  For sunrise services, temperatures Sunday morning will start out in the middle to upper 40s.  Sunrise on Sunday is 6:36 a.m.

Easter Monday will be partly sunny with highs staying in the lower 70s.  A cold front could give us a few showers by Tuesday afternoon with a mixture of clouds and some sun.  Highs on Tuesday will be 72.  Wednesday is looking good with partly cloudy skies and highs in the middle 70s.
