WEATHER: Another cool and gloomy day ahead

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – With a stubborn area of low pressure just off the coast, you can expect those cool, gloomy days to hang around just a little bit longer.

Temperatures will struggle to climb today as the majority of the day will consist of cloud cover streaming along the coast. You may see some breaks in the clouds during the early morning hours, but for the most part, expect a cloudy and cool day. Temperatures will climb into the upper 50s with lows in the mid 40s by tonight. Although rain chances are highest tomorrow, I wouldn't rule out a stray shower overnight.

As of now, rain chances are at 70% for Sunday. Expect scattered showers throughout the day tomorrow and cool temperatures. With temperatures continuing to trend below average, highs will only climb into the low 60s with lows in the low 50s.

Due to high pressure over the northeast and an area of low pressure off shore, you can expect breezy conditions over the next couple of days, as well. Winds will range from 10-20 mph.

    Today, satellites and supercomputers have vastly improved hurricane forecasting and warning. But one of our age's best tools for communicating a hurricane threat, the National Hurricane Center's official “forecast cone," can be misrepresented and is often misunderstood.
