WEATHER SUMMARY: Happy Wednesday! Dry weather will continue across the Cape Fear today and Thursday. Expect more sunshine and some high cirrus clouds throughout the day today with highs approaching the low 80s. Moisture will slowly increase across the region tomorrow as high pressure shifts off the coast. A few showers and perhaps an isolated thunderstorm arrives Friday into the weekend as temps reach around average into the low 80s but no washouts are expected. A couple of cold fronts move through early next week bringing a chance of showers and isolated thunderstorms and highs again close to average.

Tonight: Partly cloudy. Not quite as cool with a low in the upper 50s to around 60.
Thursday: Clouds and sunshine. A nice and quiet day with a high around 80 and into the upper 70s closer to the Atlantic waters.
TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK: Great news… we no have no official tropical cyclones in the Atlantic basin as all systems are now post-tropical.
Teddy has transitioned to a post tropical system. A powerful non-tropical low with winds of 75 mph moving north around 18 mph. Teddy will approach and move across southeast Canada through Thursday. Destructive waves, heavy rainfall, and strong winds are likely in Nova Scotia today. In the Cape Fear, swell and rip current risk should only gradually diminish today. Late week surf conditions should notably improve.
