Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

A doddering front could help generate isolated showers and storms across the Cape Fear Region Wednesday. Shower and storm coverage will likely be quite sparse Thursday but, as another front approaches, higher rain chances may redevelop late Friday into Saturday.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT DETAILS: The risk of isolated showers and thunderstorms will diminish by the later afternoon. Drier air will filter into the region keeping things dry and more comfortable. A light northerly or easterly breeze flow will likely keep temperatures more pleasant overnight in the lower 70s. 

EXTENDED FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS: 80s could mix with 90s for Thursday and Friday. Storm chances: a paltry 10-20% Thursday, a bit healthier 30-40% late Friday into Saturday (alert: some storms possibly gusty), then a meager 10-20% for Sunday and Monday. Also for Sunday and Monday: expect 80s for highs and 60s and 70s for lows. By the midweek, storm chance will be slim but heat and humidity build into the region. 

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