Today's Forecast Image

THURSDAY NIGHT: Looks good for tonight's Sounds of Summer concert this evening at Wrightsville Beach Park. Expect partly cloudy skies and a small (20% chance) of spot showers or storms. Overnight lows rise back into the low 70's as humidity levels creep back up.

JULY RAINFALL: From a brush with Arthur to drenching thunderstorms, July's been a wet month overall! ILM Airport reports 11.98". Average is 7.48". The record for July rain is 21.12" (1886).

FRIDAY: Expect variable clouds. Humid southeast breezes will bring higher prospects for passing showers and locally heavy storms (not a total washout though). Highs: not too hot: still mainly in the mid 80s. Rain chances surge to around 60%. More scattered showers and storms are likely Friday night with lows in the low 70's.

WEEKEND: The combination of a tropical airmass and ample upper level dynamics means we will see a lot of showers and thunderstorm activity on both Saturday and Sunday. It won't rain every moment but localized flooding and the occasional strong to severe thunderstorm is certainly possible. Rain chance is 70% Saturday and 60% Sunday. Highs remain in the mid 80's with lows in the low 70's.

TROPICS: Tropical storm Bertha formed Thursday night east of the Lesser Antilles. Some models have the storm several hundred miles off of our coast next week.
