First Alert Forecast

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

 

Intense heat will cook the Carolinas for the next several days. A typical summer time pattern of pop-up showers and storms will progress as summer officially begins Thursday, June 21st. 

 The National Weather Service has hoisted a Heat Advisory for all of southeastern North Carolina from 11 a.m. through 8 p.m. Wednesday. Please take steps to stay rested, hydrated, and neighborly - people and pets!

WEDNESDAY NIGHT: The risk for a shower or storm will linger into the early evening hours. Some storms may produce downpours, lightning strikes and gusty winds. Nighttime temperatures will be in the mild upper 70s amid southwest breezes. 

THE LONGER-RANGE: Pop-up storms and short late-June nights will offer small windows for temperatures to dip to the 70s but, mostly, expect readings in the 80s and 90s with heat index values above 100 for the next several days. 

THE TROPICS: The quiet June continues... New tropical storm development is not likely in the Atlantic Basin - including the Caribbean Sea, Gulf of Mexico, and Atlantic Ocean itself - through Wednesday and Thursday.
