First Alert Forecast: mild days and foggy mornings locally

Your First Alert forecast for Tuesday evening Oct. 20, 2020

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Happy Tuesday evening to you! Your First Alert Forecast for the next few days will feature a mix of sun and clouds and afternoon highs mainly in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Nighttime temperatures will fall into the 60s each night. For perspective, average temperatures for late October are in the middle to lower 70s during the day and lower 50s at night.

The risk for a shower or storm will remain low, near 10-20%, through the end of the week as offshore moisture brings may usher in a passing shower or storm. Be alert the next few mornings for patchy or dense fog as you head off to work or school. Visibility will be greatly reduced at times, so budgeting some extra time before you head out the door will serve you well.

On the tropical weather front: Hurricane Epsilon formed late Tuesday evening over the central Atlantic. Epsilon will bring a chance of rain and wind to Bermuda by the end of the week; the storm is not likely to be much more than a rip current generator for the United States. We will monitor it closely, nevertheless.
