WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Hello on this fourth - but not final! - October weekend and thanks for checking into your First Alert Forecast. As low pressure continues to swirl off the Carolina Coast this weekend, expect fresh northerly breezes with gusts up to 20 mph through late Sunday night. Rain chances will drop from slim to none as this ocean systems pushes away from southeastern NC.

For much of this week, we will see highs in the neighborhood of 80 degrees as we see ridging in the jet stream versus the troughing and unseasonably cool weather this past week. Most days feature partly cloudy sunny skies and low-end rain chances.

The National Hurricane Center has identified a subtropical disturbance east of Bermuda that has a low chance to organize within the next five days. The next storm name on the 2022 list is Lisa. Thankfully, the Cape Fear Region faces no definable tropical storm threats at this time. Atlantic Hurricane Season officially ends November 30 - less than 40 days to go! - and is always open.
