First Alert Forecast

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

A sharp cold front will bring a windy and warm Thursday and then a blustery and much colder Thursday night. Average high temperatures for mid to latter April are middle 70s but, in the wake of the front, forecast high temperatures will fall short of that benchmark for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Rain chances won't perk up until after the weekend as a low pressure system appears likely to lumber across the Carolinas early next week. More details for...

THURSDAY INTO THURSDAY NIGHT: Expect a gusty period with consistent dryness but highly variable temperatures. For Thursday: sun intervals and strong west winds that may gust near 30 mph will help grow temperatures to the 80s inland and 70s for the beaches. Please be very cautious with flame; brush fire danger will be elevated. For Thursday night: almost equally aggressive northwest winds will cause temperatures to nosedive to near 40 by daybreak Friday.

THE LONGER-RANGE: Enjoy mainly sunny but cool conditions Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Daily highs will mainly be in the 60s to, at most, around 70. In between, decidedly chilly deep-down 40s are likely for nightly and morning lows. Building clouds and onshore breezes will likely prevent temperatures from warming much early next week. These clouds will deliver some helpful rain chances: 40% is the baseline for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
