First Alert Weather: The roller-coaster ride continues

Posted: Updated:

The wild temperature ride continues as the cold front that pushed through returns to the north as a second surge of warm air. Shower chances remain in the forecast throughout the week with more significant rain chances late Tuesday into Wednesday.

SUNDAY: A chilly and raw day with more off and on showers, especially early.  Highs will barely clear the 50 degree hurdle. It will be chilly Sunday evening with a shot of light showers for the Wilmington Holiday Parade. Sunday night lows drop into the mid 40's as milder air begins a return.   

MONDAY: A mix of sun and clouds with highs in the low 70's.  A slight chance for a shower is possible Monday as well. Monday night will be mild, but another surge of colder air arrives 

TUESDAY: Highs in the 60's will occur early with temperatures steadily falling by afternoon.  Clouds will return along with showers becoming likely. 

WEDNESDAY: We will be mainly dry with temperatures falling back into the 50s in the wake of the morning showers. An isolated shower (10%) is possible as an area of low pressure develops just off shore into the afternoon. Temperatures will stay in the 50s Thursday, but rain chances will increase slightly (20%). Friday will feature mostly sunny skies with temperatures remaining in the 50s.
