WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - A good Friday evening to you! High pressure will continue to build into the area today shrinking rain and storm chances to 0% for tonight and Saturday, so sunscreen up and keep a green light on your beach, pool, or lake plans.

Uncharacteristically comfortable June conditions with lows in the 60s greeted you this morning; expect similar conditions for Saturday morning -- a few inland backyards and farmsteads could sink deep into the 50s. In wake of a cold front, Thursday’s highs were capped in the upper 70s and lower 80s despite plenty of sunshine. Temperatures will recover back into the lower to middle 80s, to reiterate: keep your trip to the water intact! The surf has temperatures in the lower & middle 70s with a low to moderate rip current risk. A system will roll through the area Monday with a good chance of showers and a few thunderstorms. Heat and humidity surge back into the area starting Tuesday along with low showers and storm chances.

Thankfully, the Carolinas have no definable tropical storm threats through the period.
