First Alert Forecast:

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

After a weekend of enjoyable lower humidity and plenty of sunshine, a normal July pattern settles in as the new work week begins. High pressure will slip offshore allowing a warm southerly flow and more humid air mass to build into the area. Also, a cold front will be approaching the Cape Fear Region by Tuesday bringing an abundance of moisture so expect isolated to scattered showers and storms to return. Here are your First Alert Forecast details for the week ahead and a look at the tropics too...

SUNDAY NIGHT: Expect mostly clear, to at times, partly cloudy skies amid light south breezes and temperatures mainly in the 70s. The risk for a shower or storm will be low, around 10%. 

MONDAY: Enjoy partly sunny skies and a low end shower or storm chance, around 20%. Afternoon high temperatures will climb into the upper 80s and lower 90s along with increasing humidity. Clouds will build in Monday night and the risk for a shower or storm will increase to around 30%.

EXTENDED FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS: As a cold front approaches the area and stalls, rain and storm chances will spike to near 40-50% Tuesday and Wednesday, 30% Thursday, 50% Friday then lower to 20-30% by next weekend. Daily afternoon highs will be in the middle and upper 80s and nighttime lows will mainly be in the 70s. 

A LOOK AT THE TROPICS: Subtropical Storm Beryl has become a remnant low as of Sunday evening. Elsewhere, no tropical activity is expected in the Atlantic Basin including the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean and Atlantic Ocean.
