First Alert Weather: Wet weather continues Monday and Tuesday

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A potent and complex system will bring high rain chances over the next few days.

SUNDAY NIGHT: Scattered showers and areas of moderate rain continue with lows in the low 40's. 

MONDAY: Colder air bleeds into the area behind a front and high pressure building over eastern Canada.  Several areas of low pressure will continue to affect the area keeping high rain chances around.  Temperatures will struggle to reach 50 and it will feel colder with a stiff north and northeast breeze gusting 10-15 mph.  Right now we think all precipitation will remain in the form of rain although a light wintry mix maybe possible in central NC.  Scattered showers remain possible Monday night with lows in the upper 30's. 

TUESDAY: Scattered showers are still possible, especially early in the day.  Partial clearing is likely later in the day as low pressure slowly pulls away from the Carolina coast.  Highs will be in the low 50's and lows Tuesday night will be in the mid 40's.  Storm rainfall totals of 1-2" are likely by the end of this event. 

WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY: Finally quieter weather returns.  Each day will be mostly to partly sunny with seasonable highs in the upper 60's to low 70's.  Overnight lows will be in the mid 40's to low 50's. 

NEXT WEEKEND: Saturday looks good with a mix of sun and clouds and highs in the low 70's.  A backdoor cool front may drop Sunday's highs into the low 60's.  Lows will be in the 40's.  There will be a 20% shower chance each day.

    Hurricane cone-ology

    Today, satellites and supercomputers have vastly improved hurricane forecasting and warning. But one of our age's best tools for communicating a hurricane threat, the National Hurricane Center's official “forecast cone," can be misrepresented and is often misunderstood.
