Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for Brunswick, New Hanover, and Pender counties through Friday evening. Pockets of two-inch-plus rain amounts in relatively short time periods may promote instances of flash flooding, so please stay alert and remember: never drive through water-covered roadways.

TONIGHT: Several more rounds of torrential downpours and thunderstorms will continue through the evening as low pressure slides near the coast. Localized flooding remains the primary threat as lows drop into the low and mid 70s. 

WEEKEND INTO NEXT WEEK: No one day looks to be a 24-hour rain-out, but chances for showers and storms will stay: 30% Saturday, 50% Sunday, and 40%-50% for most days next week. Potential hazards with any stronger storms will continue to include torrential downpours, lightning, and bursts of strong wind. Daily highs in the 80s and nightly lows in the 70s will remain the rule.
