WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Hello on a Friday evening, and thanks for checking in to your First Alert Forecast on another cool morning. High pressure remains one of the highlights of the forecast heading into the weekend. Rain chances will be squashed once again, mainly sunny skies. Cool, Canadian air will retreat as high pressure slides offshore. Expect lower to middle 80s for highs through the weekend. Overnight, temperatures will function in the 50s and 60s to close the week, and rebound to the more seasonal middle 60s just in time for the first days of the new season. I want to make quick mention to exercise caution if your plans take you to the beach. Choppy waters and rip currents stemming from Humberto continue to be an issue and likely will through part of the weekend. Better safe, than sorry.
In the Tropics, east of the Lesser Antilles. Hurricane Jerry continues to churn as it moves northwestward to a position just northeast of the Bahamas by this weekend. the storm is expected to fluctuate in intensity, but should also hook north before reaching North America, but you can trust that we’ll stay on top of its track. Elsewhere, Humberto is now a post tropical cyclone and finally: the rainy remnants formerly known as Imelda will soak Texas and Louisiana. You can read more about what’s happening in the Tropics here.
