WEATHER: Scattered showers today; more rain arrives Sunday

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Two rounds of precipitation will move through the area this weekend.

The first round will move through Saturday as an upper level disturbance tracks east. Rain is expected to move in as early as midday. Scattered showers are likely throughout the day Saturday with rain chances decreasing tonight before our next system moves in early Sunday.

Temperatures will only climb into the low to mid 50s across the area, which is more than ten degrees below normal.

On Sunday, another round of rain will move through the area; however, much heavier rainfall is expected due to two areas of low pressure - one, which will eventually track to the northeast and the second area of low pressure will track along the coast.

Much of North Carolina is under a general thunderstorm risk for Sunday.

Temperatures, although a bit warmer, will only climb into the upper 50s.
