First Alert Forecast: pleasantly warm for final June weekend
WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Your First Alert Forecast features ample sunshine amid a few passing clouds through Sunday. Highs should climb to the seasonable upper 80s, with 90s mixing in on the mainland.
Regrettably for your lawn & garden and from a drought standpoint, rain and storms will struggle to overcome the dominance of high pressure to the north. Please irrigate responsibly, and as directed. However, those looking to capitalize on being outside should find this time to be rather enjoyable. Just remember the sunscreen and breaks from the heat amid taxing outdoor activities.
Your planning forecast features growing chances for rain next week as a cold front stalls across the Carolinas. 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 has a good chance to develop next week. Another tropical low could develop in the northern Gulf of Mexico next week.
