First Alert Forecast:

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

Through midweek, a hot and dry high pressure system will expand its influence across the Carolinas and bring higher temperatures and lower rain chances to the Cape Fear Region. A weak low pressure system will refocus moisture for slightly more substantial rain chances thereafter. Your forecast details for...

TUESDAY: Expect partly or variably cloudy skies. Isolated showers and storms are possible but most times and places ought to be dry. After a couple of days with high temperatures in the upper 80s, healthy sun intervals and light southwest breezes will boost this afternoon's target to near 90 or the lower 90s.

THE LONGER RANGE: Wednesday and Thursday will feature sun, only a 10 to 20% chance for storms, and hot highs mainly in the lower and middle 90s. Chances for showers and storms will swell to 30% to 40% by the weekend with daily highs near 90 by then. Overnight lows should remain fixed in the 70s through the period.

THE TROPICS: New Atlantic tropical storm formation is possible midweek, but the disturbance that the National Hurricane Center gauges as having a "medium chance" of becoming "Ernesto" is no threat to land - it is about 700 miles south of Newfoundland and 700 miles east of Bermuda.
