First Alert Forecast

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

A weak cold front is settling across the Cape Fear Region. North of the front, northeastern North Carolina and Virginia will have lower humidity and a break in the scattered storm pattern but, locally, that substantially drier air will likely be just "out of reach".

Meanwhile, the National Hurricane Center gauges a low pressure system in the Florida Straits as having healthy 80% odds of developing into a tropical storm in the Gulf of Mexico by this weekend. Whether "Alberto" forms or not, moisture will likely stream into the Carolinas.

THURSDAY EVENING FORECAST: Expect variable clouds and winds. An isolated shower or thundershower could linger. Expect lows mainly in the low 70s and middle to upper 60s. 

LONGER-RANGE FORECAST TEMPERATURES: Expect daily high temperatures in the 80s Friday through Memorial Day weekend. Nighttime temperatures will settle mainly in the lower to middle 70s though a few middle to upper 60s could mix in for Thursday and Friday night.

LONGER-RANGE FORECAST RAIN CHANCES: No one day looks like a 24-hour wash-out, but odds for showers and thundershowers are likely to generally increase through Memorial Day weekend: 30% Friday and Saturday, 40% Sunday, and 50% for Memorial Day Monday.
