First Alert Forecast: Sunny and humid, watching Chantal

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT)- Just a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms through Thursday.  Highs into the upper 80s lows in the 70s.

TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY FORECAST DETAILS: Expect partly sunny skies and light southwest breezes. Rain chances will stay low but not quite zero (chance of a shower or thunderstorm is 20 to 30%). Temperatures should reach highs in the mid 80s to near 90 (warmest inland).

LATE WEEK AND WEEKEND FORECAST DETAILS: Expect daily highs in the 80s with variable clouds and scattered showers and thunderstorms (rain chances: near 40% Thursday, near 60% Friday and Saturday, and near 40% Sunday). Rainfall coverage will increase if Chantal gets closer than expected.


RIVER FLOODING UPDATE: A period of minor to moderate flooding is likely for most rivers early this week. Dry weather is helping with the swollen flows. For example, the Northeast Cape Fear River at Burgaw will likely fall below 12 feet Tuesday and below its 10-foot flood stage by late Wednesday or Thursday.
