First Alert Forecast: Dorian, charging through Caribbean, worth tracking

Your First Alert forecast for Wednesday evening Aug. 28, 2019

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Wednesday evening to you! After a few evening showers look for drier air to return later tonight into Thursday and Friday behind a front. This will lead to mostly sunny skies in the days ahead with cooler highs in the mid 80s. Rain chances will be slim. Look for some morning lows in the 60s in the days ahead. Over the Labor Day weekend humidity levels will spike again along with some shower and storm chances returning. Highs will remain in the mid 80s.

Now, let’s talk tropics! Tropical Storm Erin is a relatively simple, weak system that will bring some manageably blustery showers to the Canadian maritime provinces Thursday and Friday - not a Carolina issue. Hurricane Dorian remains of greater interest as it fights through dry air, wind shear, and hilly Caribbean islands through Friday. By Labor Day, Dorian is likely to bring at least tropical storm conditions to parts of the Bahamas and Florida. North Carolina is not the official National Hurricane Center five-day track cone of Dorian but the system is worth watching closely:
