WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Happy Sunday and Father’s Day! After a comfortable day in the 80s, the coolest part of your First Alert Forecast is in the nights ahead where lower and middle 60s are probable. As for the week ahead: expect sun and clouds with slim rain chances for your outdoor activities as a torrid high pressure ridge will flex through most of the week.

With summer officially arriving Tuesday, it’s no surprise another heat wave is on the way. Dangerously hot conditions with high heat index values appear possible into the new workweek, peaking on Wednesday and Thursday when air temperatures are back in the middle and upper 90s.

Thankfully, no tropical systems are operative anywhere in the Atlantic Basin. Bonnie is the next storm name on the 2022 list.
