WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Hello! Your First Alert Forecast accounts for slightly cooler temperatures following the passage of a weak cold front through the Cape Fear Region from the Outer Banks. Friday’s highs, which fell back into the lower and middle 80s, should nudge back up to more seasonable levels this weekend.

Regrettably for your lawn, garden and the on-going drought, rain chances through the short-term remain minimal. Please irrigate responsibly as most of the area remains in the grip of a moderate drought. However, those looking to capitalize on being outside should find this time to be rather enjoyable. Just remember to apply and reapply sunscreen and breaks from the heat amid taxing outdoor activities.

Higher humidity and scattered shower and thunderstorm chances should make a return as we head into Tuesday and Wednesday. Temperatures should hover near seasonable levels with no big heat waves in sight.

The tropics are mainly quiet, but the National Hurricane Center is watching a tropical wave off the African coast which may be conducive for development next week. Vigilance and preparedness are key this time of year:
