First Alert Forecast

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

The storm that slugged the Cape Fear Region with multiple inches of rain Monday and Tuesday will swirl over the Mid-Atlantic Region for most of the rest of the week. Its "just far enough away" position will allow for a pattern of lower - not zero, but lower - rain chances and seasonably warm temperatures locally. Your First Alert Forecast for...

WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Expect partly cloudy skies, a slim chance for a shower or thundershower and nighttime temperatures mainly in the 50s.

THURSDAY: Enjoy seasonable 70s and partly sunny skies through the afternoon. A chance of a  shower or thunderstorm will trend on the low end throughout the daytime, around 20%, and increase 40-50% for the evening and overnight. Nighttime lows hover 60 amid south breezes. 

THE LONGER RANGE: From Friday into the weekend, expect daily high temperatures in the seasonably warm 70s and nighttime readings in the 50s and 60s. Next week, May appears likely to start with 80s. Daily shower chances will operate in the 10 to 30% range through Saturday and Sunday through midweek carries a 0% shower chance at this time.
