Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey’s First Warning Forecast

Bonnie is a name we are going to learn to dislike this week. The remnants of the tropical storm will slowly meander up the North Carolina coast. Bands of showers and occasional thunderstorms will roll through our area during the entire work week and even into the weekend.

It will not be wet from beginning to end, but each day we can expect a 30% to 40% chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. There will be plenty of clouds around with occasional breaks for sunshine.

Temperatures will be near average, with highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s.

But humidity levels will be much higher than normal. This former tropical storm will bring us tropical air! We will see dew point temperatures in the 70s making it feel muggy all week long.
