First Alert Forecast: local rainy pattern to slowly relax as Barry buzzes Gulf Coast

Your First Alert Forecast from Wed. evening, July 10, 2019

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Thursday to you and thanks for checking into your First Alert Forecast! Between Thursday and the weekend... steering winds will guide Tropical Storm Barry into the upper Texas or southern Louisiana Gulf Coast. Independent of headline-making Barry but at the same time... an old, stalled, stormy front will gradually dissolve over the Cape Fear Region. Your Thursday versus Sunday local forecast exemplifies this sluggish transition to somewhat sunnier and hotter times...

Thursday: variable clouds with scattered, locally drenching showers and storms popping up and or drifting inland during the day, highs in the 80s to locally around 90.

Sunday: mostly sunny skies with isolated showers and storms - only a select few locations getting wet - and afternoon highs in the toastier lower and middle 90s.
