WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good to see you on this Friday evening! Your First Alert Forecast opens with a classic August weekend of hot sunshine, spotty and transient showers and storms, steamy mornings with temperatures in the middle 70s to lower 80s, and afternoon highs in the toasty upper 80s to lower 90s. As the heat index will occasionally ping stressful values like 100, 102, etc., please continue to keep hydration a priority as you work and play hard! Temperatures may spike again early next week with an uptick in rain chances by midweek.

Despite a recent and ongoing break in tropical storm activity, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration maintains a busy outlook for the remainder of Atlantic Hurricane Season. It would be great if this season bucks the statistics and this forecast flops! It is also best to be ready for anything. To keep your personal, family, or business storm plan sharp, please read and heed the comprehensive, local hurricane preparedness content at WECT.com/hurricane.
