First Alert Forecast: seasonable finish to the weekend, heat wave approaching
WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - We’re wrapping another July weekend with a mild and humid start to your Monday morning in the middle and upper 70s. A drying trend will likely take place into the new work week with rain chances the lowest at 10% on Monday! A reminder: drink plenty of water with the expectation of highs to climb into the upper 80s and lower 90s, heat index values in the upper 90s and lower 100s, and nightly lows no lower than the 70s.
Another heat wave will build as we head into the new week as highs rise to the deep 90s late next week. Heat advisories could be necessary as scorching high heat index values at or above 105 will be likely by Wednesday or Thursday. Our lucky streak of quiet weather in the tropical Atlantic rolls on.
