First Alert Forecast: calm and cooler to end the week after yesterday’s storms...
WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good to see you this Wednesday evening! Your First Alert Forecast for the Cape Fear Region features a slight reprieve from the heat, humidity and torrential rain these next few days. This evening includes temperatures remaining in the 80s for dinner-time plans with summery breezes to help keep you cool!
By Saturday temperatures will surge back into the 90s along with higher humidity as high pressure slides offshore. Father’s Day Sunday will be hot and humid along with a few stray showers and storms. Tropical moisture from a potential Gulf system should ramp up humidity levels and thunderstorm chances early next week.
On the tropical front: Bill has entered into a post-tropical phase. New tropical storm development is likely in the coming days in the western Gulf of Mexico. The Cape Fear Region will dodge tropical weather trouble this week, but you’ll want to be informed and prepared for whatever the lengthy Atlantic Hurricane Season might bring: wect.com/hurricane.
