Posted: Updated:
WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Summer weather will be sticking around through the weekend.  Only slightly cooler weather is expected next week.  Scattered storms are likely Sunday and Monday with the next front.  

THURSDAY: Another summery day! Look for partly sunny skies and hot highs near 90. Heat index values will be close to 100 with high humidity.  Isolated showers and thunderstorms (20% rain chance) will fire during the afternoon and early evening. Lows will be in the low 70's.

FRIDAY AND SATURDAY: Still hot and humid with highs in the upper 80's to near 90. We'll have a slight chance for an afternoon shower or thunderstorm (20% Friday and 30% Saturday).

SUNDAY AND MONDAY: An approaching cool front will boost shower and thunderstorm chances into the scattered category (40%-60% chance).  Highs fall a little bit to around 87 Sunday and 85 Monday.  Lows dip a bit into the upper 60's to near 70. 

TROPICS: Tropical Storm Dolly has dissipated but will bring heavy rain to northeastern Mexico Wednesday. Elsewhere in the Atlantic Basin, a strong tropical wave should emerge off the African coast on Thursday.
