Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

Thursday offered a brief but nice break from storms, but chances thereof have returned as a front pushes back into and stalls near the Cape Fear Region in the next several days More than a week has passed since Wilmington has reached 90 degrees and 90s are likely to remain elusive in the next several days, too. Here are your forecast details for...

FRIDAY: Expect variably to mostly cloudy skies and scattered to possibly numerous showers and storms. Potential hazards with any stronger storms include torrential downpours, lightning, and localized bursts of strong wind. Apart from storms, winds will mainly be light and southeasterly and temperatures will be able to swell to the lower and middle 80s.

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.

THE LONGER RANGE: 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% 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.

THE TROPICS: Climatologically, tropical storm development tends to ramp-up significantly in the final third of July, but thankfully, through this weekend, tropical storm formation appears unlikely anywhere in the Atlantic Basin. The Atlantic Basin includes the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, and the Atlantic Ocean itself. If and when the next storm develops, it will be named Debby.
