First Alert Forecast: heat, sun, and showers plus an eye on the tropics

Your First Alert forecast for Thursday evening Aug. 6, 2020

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) -Hello! Your Friday forecast will feature a mix of sun and some more storms. Storms Thursday developed earlier in the day but on Friday they should develop during the traditional afternoon and evening time frame for the most part. The tragedy of the lightning deaths in Wilmington Wednesday evokes the old National Weather Service safety mantra, “When thunder roars, head indoors.” In between any showers and storms, temperatures ought to reach seasonably hot highs in the 80s to around 90.

Your longer-range forecast features seasonable heat and storm chances and thankfully no input from tropical storms or hurricanes, but vigilance and preparedness is paramount as the statistical peak of Atlantic Hurricane Season is still five weeks away.
