Dustin’s First Alert Forecast: Most stay dry as we go into the Father’s Day weekend; A few coastal showers possible

Going into the rest of the evening, clouds will start to linger on before clearing out after the midnight hour, as lows will be in the mid to upper 60s. Friday will be a hot and humid day, as temperatures will be in the low to mid 90s. The humidity will make it feel very muggy and sticky at times, along with fees like temperatures in the upper 90s. While a few clouds will once again filter over the area, a few isolated coastal showers are in the cards later in the day. Any rainfall we will see will be less than a quarter of an inch or less. Lows near the low 70s.

The start of the weekend will see more of the same with heat and clear skies, but a slight dip in the humidity later Saturday night and into Sunday. While the temperatures will be in the low 90s, the heat index will feel close to the air temperatures. Rain once again will be slim to none inland, with a few showers possible along the coast. Another thing to watch will be the higher rip currents along the beaches. A few 2-4 foot waves could impact the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament in Morehead City. If you plan to make a beach trip, pay attention to the flags flying and check back daily for the rip current forecast.

For the start of next week, the heat will continue to linger across the area, thanks to high pressure that will slide over much of the Mid-Atlantic and Eastern United States. Plenty of humidity and heat, but no rain chances. For those farmers in the midst of harvesting, make sure to have a way to keep the crops watered.

As for tropics, there is a low pressure system that will give us rain along the coast Friday is being tracked by the National Hurricane Center, but, due to its consistent forward movement speed, will not present any tropical threats to the East as it passes by, and another disturbance outside the Gulf of Mexico. That system will remain no concern for us, as it forecasted to stay out of the area.
