WEATHER: A sunny, breezy, and cool Sunday

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Cold Canadian air continues to pour into southeast North Carolina.  As a result Sunday morning will start cold with reading below freezing and wind chills in the mid 20's.  Grab the heavy coat as you head to Church.  The afternoon will be: sunny, breezy, and cool with highs near 50.  Expect a northwest breeze at 8 to 12 miles per hour.  Sunday night will be clear and cold with lows in the upper 20's.

Monday will also be mostly sunny and cool with highs in the low 50's.  By Tuesday a potent low will pull into the Tennessee valley.  This low could bring us showers late in the day into Tuesday night.  Highs will reach the mid 60's.  The critical question late Tuesday will become "Could we see some severe weather?".  If we see enough surface instability it maybe possible, as upper level dynamics will be nearly perfect for severe thunderstorms. 

Wednesday into early Thursday the low pushes off the coast and strengthens rapidly.  Here in southeast North Carolina we'll be looking at rain and strong winds along with some possible coastal issues as highs reach the upper 50's.  Other parts of the state and Virginia could be in line for some snow. 

Sunday: 50/30

Monday: 52/35

Tuesday: 64/53

    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.
