First Alert Forecast: “Dog Days” - seasonably hot for July’s final weekend

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

A high pressure system will deliver a hot and mostly storm-free midsummer weekend. A rather potent cold front (according to July standards) will pass through the area early next week. Details…

SATURDAY AND SUNDAY: Expect hot and sunshine-filled afternoons! Highs: mainly low 90s Saturday, mid 90s Sunday. Heat indices could reach 106 degrees on Sunday, which could trigger a heat advisory. Nights: 70s. Isolated showers and storms are possible, but the vast majority of the time will be dry.

NEXT WEEK: Monday is looking hot and stormy with the approach of a cold front. Post-front, a period of lower rain chances and lower temperatures (80s by day, 60s at night) is possible for the midweek days.

TROPICS: New tropical storm development is not likely in the Atlantic Basin (including the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, and Gulf of Mexico) Friday.
