First Alert Forecast: chance of storms at home, tropics more settled

Your First Alert forecast for Monday evening Aug. 5, 2019

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Some good news on this Monday afternoon: the Atlantic tropical weather feature that carried medium to high development odds late last week has failed to tighten and organize over the weekend. So, this week, the National Hurricane Center has reduced its storm development chances to near 0%.

For the rest of the week and into the weekend it will be a bit hotter with highs each day in the lower 90s with muggy lows in the 70s. Afternoon and evening shower and storm chances hover in the 20-30% range.
