First Alert Forecast: heavy fall vibes for October’s opening weekend, shower risk Sunday

Your First Alert forecast for Friday evening Oct. 2, 2020

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Happy Friday evening! Your weekend forecast is autumnal and, overall, nice. Please note: a couple of 40s may mix with the 50s early Saturday, and shower chances will grow by Sunday as a low pressure trough sharpens near the Carolina Coast. These rain odds will graduate from near 40% inland to 50% for Wilmington to 60% for the beaches and barrier islands. Look for a return to drier weather early next week with temperature trending a bit below normal.

Tropical Storm Gamma formed in the northwest Caribbean Friday evening. Gamma will move across the Yucatan Peninsula and into the southwest Gulf of Mexico by the middle of next week. It is not a threat to the Carolinas at this point.
