WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Great to see you on this Tuesday evening. Your First Alert Forecast headlines more 90s and daily heat indices above 100 degrees. Stay rested, hydrated, and neighborly! Apart from the sizzling summer sunshine, hazards will present as stray and isolated storms and a moderate rip current risk, so thanks for keeping an eye to the sky and keeping it safe in the 82-degree surf! A slight cooling trend will drop highs to more seasonable upper 80s by the weekend.

In the tropics: the National Hurricane Center continues to forecast the remnants of Tropical Storm Frank to climb to within 300 miles of California - an unusual thing for tropical or remnant tropical systems to do. Whether this setup will deliver moisture to the parched Golden State remains to be seen but, safe to say, any would be a blessing! In the meantime, the Atlantic tropical storm scene remains delightfully uneventful, but please stay vigilant in any case:
