First Alert Forecast: 90s stay away
WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Great to see you late on this Wednesday. After many hot weeks, Wilmington and most of the Cape Fear Region has now gone six days without feeling 90+ temperatures. And it looks like more are coming.
The muggy summer air will sponsor a 20% chance for a passing shower or storm Thursday, but rain and storm odds ramp up into the 50-60% range Thursday night through the weekend. We don’t expect washouts but most of the area should see several inches of rain over the next seven days. Wilmington averages a healthy 8.16 inches of August rain and, so far in August 2022, the Port City has only netted 1.99 inches.
