Forecast Discussion: Higher humidity and stronger southwesterly winds will take yesterday’s highs in the upper 80s and raise them to the mid 90s this afternoon. This additional heat coupled with the humidity will make the “feels like” temp reach near 100°, so if you plan on spending extended time outside today, make sure you hydrate. A stray sea breeze storm will be possible (20% chance) due to the heat discrepancy across the East. The rain showers will most likely set up a few miles inland from the Crystal Coast.

Isolated storms are possible on Sunday but the more substantial rain will likely arrive as the remnants of Potential Tropical Cyclone 3 reach us on Monday. This will raise us to a First Alert Weather Day because of the severe storm threat that could accompany the low. A cold front will follow that tropical system, pushing through more storms on Tuesday. Following that cold front, we’ll be back to a cooler, drier air mass.

Many of our towns are on track to have the wettest June on record so this tropical system is especially one to watch with rain totals.
