Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

A hot high pressure ridge remains on-schedule to deliver a heat wave this weekend. Plan to stay rested, hydrated, and neighborly - people and pets! An approaching front will provide more typical summertime heat and an unsettled weather pattern through the week. 

The National Weather Service has issued a HEAT ADVISORY for southeastern North Carolina Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. - 7 p.m..

SATURDAY NIGHT DETAILS: Expect mostly clear skies and muggy conditions overnight. Lows temperatures are expected to be in the middle 70s in most backyards, although beaches will hover around 80. 

SUNDAY FORECAST DETAILS: Partly sunny skies in the afternoon will help fuel temperatures in the 90s again. The heat index will swell to around 100-109 degrees due to hot temperatures and high humidity. The risk of showers and storm will be slim through the afternoon, around 10-20%, then increase to 30% by the late evening hours. Lows are projected to be in the middle 70s. 

EXTENDED FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS: By next week, temperatures week temperatures will trend more seasonable, but still hot in the upper 80s and low 90s. Storm chances will increase to around 40-50% through the most of the week. Lows will be in the 70s.

TROPICS: New tropical storm formation is not expected in the Atlantic Basin - including the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea - through the weekend.
