WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The tropical air mass that has been in place across southeast North Carolina will begin to move out tomorrow. A slightly drier air mass moves in for Sunday, which means humidity levels and rain chances will decrease for the second half of the weekend, just in time for Father's Day on Sunday.
FRIDAY NIGHT: A tropical air mass remains in place. Very warm and humid conditions prevail with lows tonight in the low 70s. Occasional downpours and isolated thunderstorms are expected from time to time.
WEEKEND FORECAST: A typical June cool front approaching the North Carolina coast will bring a chance for afternoon and evening storms, especially on Saturday. Conditions will dry up on Sunday, leaving a pleasant afternoon to spend with Dad outdoors. Highs Saturday will be in the upper 80's, but fall a few degrees on Sunday. Overnight lows will be in the upper 60's.
NEXT WEEK: Monday will be very warm with lower humidity as a high pressure system settles over the area. High temperatures creep into the 90s by Tuesday. As the week progresses, so do rain chances and humidity levels. Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms return later in the week. Lows rise from the upper 60s to the low 70s.
TROPICS: No tropical development is expected in the tropical Atlantic over the next few days.
