First Alert Forecast: Summery Monday comes to a close, fall-like - WECT TV6-WECT.com:News, weather & sports Wilmington, NC

First Alert Forecast: Summery Monday comes to a close, fall-like conditions rebuild for Tuesday

After a Monday with highs deep in the 80s, elevated humidity levels, and isolated but potent downpours, a cooler high pressure system will rebuild across the area for Tuesday. So: fall-like conditions (reminiscent of the past weekend) will likely return.

MONDAY NIGHT AND TUESDAY FORECAST: Expect variable clouds. Shower chance will be 20 to 30% Monday night and 10 to 20% Tuesday. Cool north or northeast breezes will develop (generally 5 to 15mph speeds) and, with that, temperatures will fall to mainly the 60s Monday night and only rebound to the 70s to around 80 by Tuesday afternoon. 

EXTENDED FORECAST: Dry or mostly dry weather will rule for Wednesday through Friday with rain chances of 10% or less most of the time. Daytime temperatures will mainly be in the upper 70s and low 80s in this period. Shower or thundershower chances will increase to near 30% by Sunday. Daily high temperatures will mainly be in the mid 80s this weekend. 

TROPICAL AREAS OF INTEREST:

Ingrid has made landfall in Mexico.  The storm will weaken but produce flooding rains over northern portions of the country.  Southern Texas could also see significant rain over the next few days. 

- Humberto has reformed as a tropical storm in the central Atlantic.  It could strengthen some for the next 48 hours.  Eventually it will weaken again as it moves into the colder waters of the north Atlantic.
