Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

A seasonably hot and humid summer air mass will bathe the Cape Fear Region into the weekend. Moisture from the remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy and the approach of a front will boost rain chances at times. Following the front, a dose of marginally cooler air with lower rain chances appears possible if not likely by the middle of next week.

FRIDAY FORECAST DETAILS: Expect variable clouds. The risk of a pop-up shower or heavy thunderstorm will swell modestly from near 10% in the morning to near 30% for the afternoon and evening. Amid a muggy southwest breeze, temperatures will likely grow to highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s inland... and mid 80s for most beaches.

EXTENDED FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS: Saturday and Sunday will have highs in the lower 90s and mid 80s, respectively, and fairly bulky 50% storm chances. Leftover shower chances of 30% are on the board for Monday and Tuesday but chances ought to sink to near 10% by midweek. Also by midweek: temperatures and humidity levels are likely to shrink a bit... with nightly lows in the comfy 60s possible.

TROPICS: The rainy remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy will continue to lift through the Mid-South and central Appalachians between Friday and Saturday. The presence of these remnants will bolster moisture supplies all over the South, really. Meanwhile, new tropical storm development is not likely anywhere in the Atlantic Basin Friday or Saturday.

        Hurricane cone-ology

        Today, satellites and supercomputers have vastly improved hurricane forecasting and warning. But one of our age's best tools for communicating a hurricane threat, the National Hurricane Center's official “forecast cone," can be misrepresented and is often misunderstood.
