First Alert Forecast: Summer heat having some staying power

Your First Alert Forecast from Sat. Morning, Sep. 28, 2019

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Saturday to you and thanks for checking into your First Alert Forecast! Your weekend forecast features more unseasonably sultry sunshine, balmy southwest breezes, and a slim opportunity for a pop-up shower or storm. Afternoon high temperatures will swell to the deep 80s to around 90. While Fall weather lovers may lament, this weekend will be close to ideal for a late-season beach or pool trip! On the flip side, a more seasonably cool trough of air looks to finally settle into the Carolinas by next weekend.

In the tropics, your First Alert Weather Team continues to monitor Hurricane Lorenzo will barrel northward over open water through early next week. Lorenzo does not to pose a threat to the Carolinas but we will continue to monitor and updated. No other tropical systems are expected to form this weekend, but we still have a little over two months left in the season, so diligence continues to be key.
