Today's Forecast Image

 

**The National Weather Service has hoisted a Heat Advisory for much of southeastern NC Saturday from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m.**

SATURDAY NIGHT DETAILS:  For the rest of the afternoon, expect scattered to isolated showers and storms. Some storms will have the potential to produce heavy rainfall, lightning and gusty winds. This activity will taper off by the later evening hours and partly cloudy skies will last thought the overnight hours. Low temperatures are expected to be in the 70s.

SUNDAY FORECAST DETAILS: Rain and storm chances will function around 30%, otherwise expect partly sunny skies. Muggy and mild conditions will last overnight with low temperatures in the 70s.

GREAT AMERICAN ECLIPSE: Amid the pop-up clouds and storms, we continue to hope for a well-timed interval of sun for Monday's solar eclipse! For full details on the spectacle and how it will affect the Cape Fear Region, click to our special section  HERE.

NEXT WEEK: Not quite as hot under mostly to partly sunny skies. Daytime temperatures will regularly reach the upper 80s to low 90s, with heat index values back in the 100+ realm. Lows should be in the lower and middle 70s. Chances for showers and storms: around 30% daily. 

TROPICS: Steering winds will guide Tropical Storm Harvey through the Caribbean Sea into early next week; it will bring neither direct nor indirect impacts to the Carolinas. A tropical wave of low pressure east of Harvey and over open Atlantic waters may become a tropical storm named Irma over the next few days.
