Weather Authority Forecast

An approaching cold front will affect our weather the next few days. The front will be to our west Thursday, so Thursday will be our hottest day of the next several. Highs will be in the lower to mid 90s with heat index values just above 100 inland areas. Skies will be partly sunny. Expect southerly breezes at 5 to 1 0mph.

The front reaches eastern Carolina early Friday and will spark a few scattered thunderstorms as early as Thursday night. Highs Friday will be around 90, but will drop quickly under any thunderstorms. Winds will be southwesterly then become westerly.

The front will slow its forward progress over the weekend. It appears the front will be just off the coast for the weekend which would lead to rain free weather over most of the region. The rain chance is 20 to 30% for the weekend afternoons. Highs will be in the upper 80s.


Tropical development is not expected over the next couple of days however a disturbance has formed far away in the eastern Atlantic which has a 30% chance to become a tropical depression in the next 5 days.


Wednesday Night: Partly cloudy, mild and muggy. Lows in the lower 70s with a a light southeast breeze at 3 to 5 mph.

Thursday: Mostly sunny with highs in the low 90s and south winds at 5 to 10 mph. The heat index will reach between 97 and 103.
