Temperatures are expected to be in the upper 70s with breezy conditions.
A few showers are expected to move in late into the evening and overnight.
The rain won’t add up to much. We can expect less than a quarter inch, and most of that will be in our eastern counties.
Winds may gust to near 30 mph for a few neighborhoods through tomorrow morning before subsiding into the afternoon.
Temperatures won’t likely get out of the low to mid-70s on Saturday, but we bounce back to 80 degrees on Sunday with more sunshine.
The National Weather Service says Tropical Storm Ophelia has started to strengthen off the mid-Atlantic coast.
A hurricane watch has been issued for parts of eastern North Carolina, including north of Surf City, North Carolina, to Ocracoke Inlet, North Carolina.
The storm is expected to make landfall after midnight.
