Sunday will be less active with just a 20% chances of a spot shower or storm. Temperature will hover around 90 for the coast and mid 90s inland. High humidity will make it feel like the low 100′s in some back yards tomorrow so be sure to stay hydrated!

Tropics: A high pressure ridge will shift into the Carolinas, steering Tropical Storm Barry into Louisiana. So, while the threat for flooding rain will increase for the Lower Mississippi Valley, the coverage of showers and storms ought to eventually trend lower here in the Cape Fear Region.
