Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

A sluggish front will focus a scattered storm pattern on Southeastern North Carolina for much of this week. Storms will primarily pose the threats of torrential downpours, poor-drainage flooding, and excessive lightning... but isolated instances and hail and strong wind cannot be ruled-out.

TUESDAY NIGHT DETAILS: The risk of a shower or storm this afternoon will be around 30-40% before decreasing later tonight. Expect mostly to partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the 70s overnight. 

EXTENDED FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS: Expect partly cloudy skies, upper 80s and lower 90s for daily highs, and nightly lows in the seasonable 70s. Chances of storms will range from near 30% Wednesday, 20% Thursday, and 30% Friday - except possibly higher inland.  By the weekend, expect slightly cooler high temperatures reaching the middle and upper 80s. The risk for storm activity will range from 30-40% through the weekend into next week. 

TROPICS: New tropical storm development is not likely in the Atlantic Basin - including the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, and Atlantic Ocean itself - Tuesday. Atlantic tropical storm and hurricane activity usually increases during the upcoming months of August and September.
