First Alert Weather: A cool Monday followed by a warm up

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Cool high pressure centered over New England controls your Monday weather. 

SUNDAY NIGHT: Tonight will be clear and chilly with lows in the low 40's.  A northerly breeze in the 10 mph range could drop wind chills into the upper 30's so make sure kids have a coat as they head to the bus stop.

MONDAY AND TUESDAY: A chilly Monday morning is likely with step-outside temperatures in the 40s (few 30s?).  The afternoon will be sunny, breezy, and cool with highs in the low 60's.  The wind will be out of the northeast at 10-15 mph.  Monday night a few clouds stream back into the area.  It will be chilly again with lows in the low to mid 40's.  On Tuesday look for a mix of sun and clouds and a milder high in the upper 60's as the high moves offshore and the next front begins to approach from the west. 

WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY: Wednesday will again feature a mix of sun and clouds.  Highs warm into the low 70's, and there is about a 20% chance of a few spotty light showers.  Clouds increase more Wednesday night with a small shower chance (20%).  Expect a mild low in the low 60's.  Thursday the next cool front moves towards the Carolinas.  Ahead of the front southerly winds warm afternoon highs into the upper 70's.  It will be mostly cloudy with scattered showers and possibly a thunderstorm.  Showers end Thursday night and clouds decrease with lows in the low 50's. 

FRIDAY AND NEXT WEEKEND: Behind the cool front clouds quickly exit Friday morning.  The afternoon will be mostly sunny with highs in the 60's.  The weekend will be sunny with a bit of a warming trend.  Highs rise from the upper 60's Saturday to near 70 Sunday.  Lows will be in the 40's. 

TROPICAL OUTLOOK: We are monitoring an area of showers and thunderstorms associated with a broad and weak area of low pressure located over the central Caribbean Sea. This system has a low (10%) chance of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days. November is the final official month of the hurricane season in the Atlantic Basin.
