WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Hello! Your First Alert Forecast opens with a seasonably steamy June weekend across the Cape Fear Region. Expect daily temperatures to crest in the 80s to locally around 90. Spotty, locally heavy showers and storms could pop, primarily but certainly not exclusively in the afternoons and evenings. So, as you go about your outdoor plans, keep an eye to the sky and the interactive radar tab of your WECT Weather App. Exceptionally early sunrises of 5:59 and late sunsets - pushing 8:30 - will favor the weekend warrior!

As a strong, summery high-pressure ridge develops, your First Alert Forecast turns hotter for much of next week. Expect broiling 90s to near 100 for daytime temperatures and sultry nights in between. Note also that this heat wave may feature sufficient humidity to push heat index values to near 105 - a particularly stressful threshold not yet met in 2022. In any case, please plan to stay rested, hydrated, and neighborly! And lastly, please watch for potentially heavy, gusty, electric storms to pop up on isolated or scattered scales.
