The wind and cold will end by Friday! A “Bermuda High” (High Pressure over Bermuda) will bring in tropical air over the weekend and really warm the area. Temperatures on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday will be in middle 80s. By next week, the cooler air will return as the Bermuda High is pushed out by a cold front Sunday Night.
Here is a map to explain::
Note: Allergies will be bad this weekend, so make sure to take benadryl or claritin.

After a picture perfect spring weekend, the weather will just keep getting warmer as high pressure will build off the of Carolina coastline. This will bring in the warm air and raise our temperatures into the mid to upper 80s by Wednesday. A cold front will eventually crash the heat wave and bring more seasonable temperatures to the area by late week.
Tonight: Getting cool as the night progresses, clear Low 46
Tomorrow: Partly cloudy Hi 77
Tomorrow Night: Becoming clear overnight Low 55
Tuesday: Very, very warm. Turn your air conditioning on! Hi 83Low 60
