Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

We're getting close to fall! The new season will officially arrive Friday at 4:02 in the afternoon. Average high temperatures for this time of year are the lower 80s; readings are likely to climb a little higher than that benchmark through Friday before settling back a bit over the weekend and into early next week. Through this whole stretch, your First Alert Weather Team will be closely monitoring Hurricane Maria... 

THURSDAY EVENING FORECAST DETAILS: The risk of a pop-up shower or thundershower will wane this evening. Most times and places ought to be dry. Temperatures will likely bottom out in the low 70s or upper 60s, amid southerly breezes. In the surf, expect mainly 2 to 5-foot breakers and a low to moderate risk for rip currents. Sunset on this final full day of summer will be at 7:09 p.m.

EXTENDED FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS: For Friday and the weekend, expect mainly fair skies with low shower chances, daytime highs mainly in the mid to lower 80s, and nightly lows in the 60s to around 70. In the surf, expect mainly 2 to 5-foot breakers and a moderate risk for rip currents. *If* Hurricane Maria tracks east of the Carolina Coast - which still is the most likely outcome at this point - then early next week ought to be mostly dry and seasonably mild. Please stay alert in case of forecast changes.

TROPICS: Your First Alert Weather Team continue to monitor tropical systems Jose and Maria. For details: CLICK HERE. September is the statistical peak of Atlantic Hurricane Season, so it makes sense for your family to have a ready-to-do storm plan. For details: CLICK HERE.
