WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Thursday, like Wednesday, will feature a rare-for-summer 0% rain chance for much of the day. Classic summertime pop-up storm chances will return for Friday and the holiday weekend, though, as the "Bermuda High" brings a more typical hot and humid pattern.

THURSDAY FORECAST DETAILS: Expect sunny or partly sunny skies and 0-10% shower chances. Light easterly breezes will shift to southeasterly and, with that, a subtle increase in humidity is possible. Overall, though, expect a pleasant summer day with highs in the 80s.

FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS FROM FRIDAY THROUGH THE 4TH: Daily highs will swell to the 80s and 90s. Nightly lows: sultry 70s. Pop-up shower and storm chances will operate in the 30-40% range Friday through Monday... and the 20-30% range for the 4th.

TROPICS: New tropical storm development is not anticipated in the Atlantic Basin – including the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, and Atlantic Ocean itself – Thursday or Friday. The next names on the 2017 list are "Don" and "Emily".
