WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good to see you on this Friday! High pressure amid a deepening ridge will continue to keep desperately needed rainfall away from the Cape Fear Region. Expect sun and cloud intervals again Friday with highs swell into the 70s and 80s again.

The tropics are coming alive as the National Hurricane Center is monitoring an area of disturbed weather east of Bermuda which could become Subtropical Storm Ana sometime today. While the storm would not directly impact the Cape Fear Region, the system could be a rip current generator along the Carolina Coast this weekend. Another area in the western Gulf of Mexico is producing disorganized showers and storms and has medium odds of development. The official start of the Atlantic hurricane season begins June 1.
