First Alert Forecast

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

Tropical storm development is possible in the Gulf of Mexico by this weekend, but whether or not this happens, rich supplies of moisture will stream into the Cape Fear Region and sustain several days of nonzero rain chances. 

WEDNESDAY FORECAST DETAILS: Variable clouds are likely to deliver isolated or scattered showers and locally heavy storms. Amid humid south breezes, temperatures will trend to the 80s away from showers but 70s are more likely in times of rain.

LONGER-RANGE FORECAST TEMPERATURES: Expect daily high temperatures in the 80s from Thursday through Memorial Day weekend. Nighttime temperatures will settle mainly in the lower to middle 70s though a few middle to upper 60s could mix in.

LONGER-RANGE FORECAST RAIN CHANCES: No one day looks like a 24-hour wash-out. Odds for showers and thundershowers are gauged near 40% Thursday, 30% Friday, 20% Saturday, 40% Sunday, 40% for Memorial Day Monday, and 30% for next Tuesday.

TROPICS: The National Hurricane Center gauges an area of low pressure in the Florida Straits as having a 50% chance of developing into a tropical storm as it moves northwestward, and into the Gulf of Mexico, in the next two to five days.
