WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Damp, cloudy and cool conditions are expected Monday as cold Canadian air pushes in on the heels of a cold front.
Surface high pressure will help bring in northerly and northeasterly winds. This will set up a "wedge" of cold and moist air moving over the ocean waters socking the eastern Carolinas under clouds and cooler temperatures.
Highs Monday should struggle into the mid 60s with a 50/50 shot of light showers throughout the day.
Some clearing is expected on Tuesday, but it isn't really until Wednesday when the sunny skies return and our temperatures rebound to near 80.
With the cooler air in place and the clear skies during the middle of the week, our temperatures will also drop overnight. We will see upper 40s inland, with the 50s along the coast.
Drier and warmer weather should continue through the end of the week.
