WILMINGTON — Tropical Storm Humberto appears likely to travel east into the Atlantic, avoiding the Southeastern North Carolina area.

On Friday morning, predictions from the National Weather Service (NWS) had the weather system becoming a tropical storm on track to the Wilmington area by Wednesday morning. Updated predictions now show the storm taking a hard turn to the east, pulling away from the coast and heading out to sea.

As of Saturday morning, there were three tropical disturbances in the Atlantic off the coast of Africa and one in the Gulf of Mexico. Thankfully, according to NWS predictions, none of these systems had more than a 20 percent chance of becoming cyclones.
