WEATHER: AM dense fog then a warm and dry Sunday

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Patchy areas of dense fog will be likely prior to 10 AM on Sunday.  A dense fog advisory is in effect for coastal counties until 9 AM.  Visibilities could drop below a quarter to half mile in spots so allow extra time and don't follow the car in front of you too closely if you are headed to church.  Once the atmosphere mixes up by late morning, the rest of your Sunday will be great.  Temperatures will rise from near 50 to the low and mid 70's by afternoon.  Skies will be partly sunny in the afternoon.  Enjoy!

The next cold front will approach the area early next week.  Isolated to scattered showers and even a few isolated thunderstorms are likely Monday into Tuesday.  Highs will reach the mid 70's Monday and upper 60's Tuesday.  Behind the front partly sunny and dry weather is expected Wednesday and Thursday.  Highs will fall back to around 60 and we'll likely see some overnight lows in the 30's. 

Sunday 73/57     Monday 75/62     Tuesday 68/49     Wednesday 59/37

    A northerly surface high has built into our area since Monday, bringing us cooler and crisper air... but don't expect it to last much longer, so enjoy it while it lasts! The system is expected to move out by Thursday morning, and heat and oppressive humidity is going to make a return by the weekend.
