WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Sunday to you! Thanks for checking into your First Alert Forecast on this Labor Day weekend! We’ll finally bid farewell to the early September heat wave today, so if you have plans to be outdoors, expect highs mainly in the middle 80s and a low chance for any raindrops. In fact, cooler and drier air will fill in through early this week with middle and upper 80s for many days ahead. Overall; much more comfortable, especially since we’re recovering from 80 degree dew points last week.
The Cape Fear Region faces no threats from hurricanes or tropical storms on this long weekend. This is especially great news considering that Irma was getting ready to brush by in 2017, Florence was preparing to unleash a catastrophe in 2018, and Dorian was just about to deal a damaging blow in 2019. Your First Alert Weather Team is, and will continue to monitor some healthy tropical waves of low pressure in the eastern Atlantic Ocean, but again, these pose no definable threat at this time.
