First Alert Forecast: superb beach days ahead, tropics
WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Happy Sunday to you! Your First Alert Forecast will continue to feature dry skies and comfortable temperatures cooling down into the 70s for your evening plans. Expect dew points in the 50s and 60s, which will reinforce the fresh, crisp fall-like feel.
Fortunately, rip current risks are dying down thanks to swells from Larry deteriorating. Tomorrow, expect breaking waves of one to two feet, an 80-degree surf, and rip current risk will be LOW.
Your seven-day planning forecast features a continuation of near zero rain chances through early next week: http://webpubcontent.gray.tv/wect/MAXSevendayWECT.jpg. Remember, numbers in this forecast are for Wilmington, but you can always customize your location and extend your outlook to a full ten days with your WECT Weather App.
Tropical Storm Nicholas has formed in the Gulf of Mexico. It is likely to bring T.S. conditions as well as life-threatening storm surge along southern Texas beginning tomorrow. Moisture from this system will aid in raising rain chances later this week but no direct impacts are forecast for the Cape Fear Region!
We’re at the peak of the Atlantic Hurricane Season, but we still have about two-and-a-half months to go. Please make sure you stay vigilant and prepared with the resources your First Alert Weather Team outlines here: wect.com/hurricane. Enjoy what’s left of your weekend!
