WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The cloudy low pressure system that has been stuck off our coast for several days will finally weaken and spin away between Tuesday and Wednesday. Another storm system will approach late in the week and the weekend.
MONDAY NIGHT FORECAST: Expect mostly cloudy skies with a 20 - 30% chance of drizzle or light rain. Winds will flow from the northeast at speeds of mainly 5 to 10mph and temperatures will slowly dip to late-night lows mainly in the lower 60s.
TUESDAY FORECAST: Expect clouds to largely remain in control, but peeks or intervals of sunshine may mix. Chance of a passing shower is 20%. Temperatures will warm to highs mainly in the mid 70s amid light north or northeast breezes.
WEDNESDAY FORECAST: Fog is possible to start. Otherwise, expect a mix of clouds and sun with light and variable breezes. Shower chance will be near 0% and temperatures will likely climb to highs in the upper 70s (locally near 80?).
EXTENDED FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS: A series of fronts will drive 30% rain chances for Thursday night and Friday - and perhaps later in the weekend. Much of the period will be rain-free, however. Temperatures should consistently reach the 70s for highs..
TROPICAL OUTLOOK: New tropical storm formation is not likely in the Atlantic Basin (including the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, and Atlantic Ocean itself) though the middle parts of this week.
