Scattered afternoon showers on Saturday & Sunday...
Temperatures over the weekend will be cooler than what we saw Friday. Highs will reach the mid 80s as skies stay partly to mostly cloudy. Rain will be possible after about 1pm on Saturday coverage will only be about 30%.
Labor Day Weekend is looking fairly nice although there will be a 20% to 30% risk of mainly afternoon and evening showers each day. Temps will be in the middle 80s. Winds will blow from the northeast and east throughout the weekend.
ECU game day will feature a mix of clouds and sunshine throughout the day. Temperatures will be slightly cooler, with highs in the middle 80s during the afternoon. The kickoff temperature at 6:00 pm will be in the lower 80s then slowly drop into the lower to middle 70s during the evening. There will be a 20% to 30% risk of a shower or storm during the afternoon and evening. Any shower activity would likely be brief, if at all.
The beaches will have highs in the lower to middle 80s. Each day will feature partly cloudy skies and a 30% risk of showers, although most of the time will be free of rain. Winds will blow from the northeast at 10 to 15 mph through the weekend.
As of Saturday morning, Tropical storm Fred remained a weak tropical storm over the far Eastern Atlantic Ocean. Fred had sustained winds of 40 mph. It is moving to the west-northwest at 10 mph and is moving away from the Cape Verde Islands in the far eastern Atlantic Ocean. It will continue this west to northwesterly track through Saturday then turn more northward thereafter.
Fred is likely to fade away by late weekend as it moves into a less favorable area for maintaining strength.
Fred is currently about 2400 miles from the Carolina coast. Fred is not expected to make it across the Atlantic. Consequently, little or no impact from Fred will be felt along the East Coast.
Another low pressure center south of the Cape Verde Islands has a high chance of forming in to a tropical system within the next 48 hours. If it does form in to a named system, it will be named Grace, the seventh tropical storm of the season.
