Star’s First Alert Forecast: Stalled front sparks storms near the coast
The summer time heat and humidity will be back in the area to start the week
Forecast Discussion: Most showers in ENC are weakening and won’t have additional rain. There will be a bump in heat Wednesday before a clearing front rolls in on Thursday. We’ll have plenty of dry time on Wednesday but isolated afternoon storms are expected. More scattered storms are expected for Thursday so you’ll want an umbrella as early as noon that day. Looking ahead, the forecast for the weekend looks pretty good! Normal highs in the mid-80s and mostly sunny both days.
Tropical Update: Larry is currently a category 3 hurricane and is forecast to remain a major hurricane over the next few days. Larry will continue on its northwesterly track before turning north before reaching Bermuda. The center of Larry will come within 50 miles of the island, which will create a high threat of rip currents for our beaches here in the East over the next several days. Today, rip current threats will be high from Duck to Cape Lookout. We are also monitoring a disturbance in the Gulf which has increased to a 50% chance of development this week.
