Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

The temperature at Wilmington reached a high of 88 Monday but then a hotter 91 Tuesday and Wednesday... and with a fiery summer high pressure system remaining in place, odds favor 90s versus 80s for the Port City and most of the rest of the Cape Fear Region Thursday...

THURSDAY FORECAST DETAILS: Expect sun and light southwest breezes to deliver afternoon highs to mainly in the lower 90s. Heat index values ought to peak closer to 100. Like Wednesday, the chance for a cooling and locally drenching storm will be a low but not insignificant 20 to 30%.

EXTENDED FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS: From Friday into next week... Daily highs will remain consistent in the upper 80s and lower 90s and overnight lows will stay fixed in the 70s. Shower and storm chances: 30% Friday and Saturday, 50% Sunday, and 30 to 40% early next week.

THE TROPICS: Ernesto should maintain its "subtropical storm" designation through Thursday and then transition to a non-tropical, or fully cold-core, storm system by the weekend. Importantly, steering winds will whisk it toward Europe and not North America.
