First Alert Forecast: needed rain chances swinging up
WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Great to see you late on this Monday! A sluggish summer cold front will sag south into the Cape Fear Region and stamp rain chances on your First Alert Forecast: 40% Monday night, 60% Tuesday, 40% Tuesday night, and 50% Wednesday. Severe storms do not look especially likely, but we will watch any cells closely. Hopefully, meaningful rainfall will eventually reach all gardens, fields, and ponds as June started wet, but, lately, has not been so much. In the midst of higher rain chances, temperatures ought to peak in the upper 70s to middle 80s Tuesday and Wednesday.
Thankfully, the Carolinas have no definable tropical storm threats right now. However, your First Alert Weather Team is monitoring Potential Triopcal Cyclone Two and tropical disturbances that have chances to develop: one in the western Gulf of Mexico and another in the deep tropical Atlantic Ocean. One of the latter features is unusually healthy for its location this early in Atlantic Hurricane Season and many computer models suggest it will further organize in the Caribbean Sea late this week. The next storm name on the list is Bonnie - yes, the same name as a strong hurricane that struck the Cape Fear Region in July of 1996.
