First Alert Forecast: stormy and toasty in the short term

Your First Alert Forecast from Tue. evening, June 30, 2020

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Happy Tuesday! This forecast period features neither large-scale flooding rain systems nor tropical systems in the Cape Fear region. Weaker systems, however, will have plenty of summer humidity and warmth with which to convert to pop-up showers and drenching storms at times.

Wednesday will carry a healthy shower and storm chance of 50% - weighted primarily but not exclusively in the midday and afternoon hours. Rain chances aside, you may expect partly to variably cloudy skies and temperatures mainly reaching the upper 80s for highs. Of course, a few locations might sneak to the lower 90s and, given humidity, heat index values are almost certainly going to peak in the 90s.

Your extended forecast has daily high temperatures in the middle and upper 80s and low to medium pop-up storm chances; Independence Day Saturday is right in that mix.
