SOUTHEAST N.C. — This year’s Atlantic Hurricane Season has gotten off to a slow start but the Coastal Carolinas could see at least some heavy rain as a storm system off the Florida Coast makes its way north.

According to the National Hurricane Center, “A tropical depression is likely to form this weekend or early next week while the low moves from near the coast of east-central Florida to offshore of the southeastern United States coast.”

The storm has a high probability of cyclonic formation over the next five days at an estimated 70%.

The National Weather Service’s extended forecast for Wilmington shows a high chance of storms moving into the region on Saturday and Sunday, with slightly lower rain chances in the upcoming week.
