First Alert Forecast: tropics buzzing on statistical peak of Hurricane Season

Your First Alert Forecast from Tue. afternoon, Sept. 10, 2019

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Tuesday to you! It is September 10: the statistical peak of Atlantic Hurricane season and, as you would expect, there is tropical weather activity. For one, Tropical Storm Gabrielle is riding the westerlies toward Great Britain where it will bring late-week rain. In the lower latitudes, three eastern Atlantic tropical waves of low pressure will continue to propagate westward toward the Caribbean. These features, per the National Hurricane Center, carry low to medium development odds. While there are neither immediate nor definable tropical weather threats to the Carolinas right now, day-to-day vigilance is necessary this time of year!

Here at home, your First Alert Forecast for Tuesday features partly sunny skies, a stray passing shower or storm possibility, light northeasterly breezes, and afternoon highs mainly in the toasty upper 80s.
