FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

TRACKING ARTHUR AND WEEKEND RAIN

The weather this weekend will continue to feature hot and humid afternoon conditions marked with a few thunderstorms in the afternoon. Evening temperatures this weekend will continue to provide only a little relief as the thermometers dip to the mid/upper 70's in the morning.

With onshore wind in the morning it is possible a widely isolated shower could push across the coastal communities early on Saturday morning. Coverage though should be minimal and any rain activity rather short-lived.

Looking to Saturday and Sunday afternoons, the forecast calls for a few more afternoon storms to track each day. The best chance for showers will still favor inland areas during the afternoon, but some early evening storms could build back to the coast around sunset. High temperatures both days will be in the 90's and it will continue to be humid.

Hurricane Arthur

Hurricane Arthur is moving quickly northeast and will impact areas of the Canadian Maritimes.

As of late Friday night, the storm is a category one hurricane after scraping the coast of North Carolina on Thursday night.

Despite it's weakening trend, Arthur is still a storm packing a punch. According to the 8 p.m. advisory from the National Hurricane Center, maximum sustained winds are now at 80 mph. Return to index of stories...
