WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Happy Sunday to you! A cool high pressure system will break down Saturday as low pressure works in Sunday. Temperatures will run more seasonable which will keep the chance of any wintry precipitation out of the forecast. This system moved out quickly and high pressure will return bringing a dry pattern back early next week. What’s good about this system is what it won’t be:

- It won’t bring flooding. Total rainfall by the end of the weekend will be on the order of a few manageable hundredths or tenths of an inch and that shouldn’t be enough to trigger any flooding.

- It won’t bring hazardous wintry precipitation. Despite cool weekend temperatures, it won’t quite be cold enough for snow or ice locally. The Virginias and northwestern North Carolina could see some, though.

- It won’t likely produce severe storms. Temperatures won’t likely get warm enough to produce the surface instability needed for severe storms or embedded thunder whatsoever!
