WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - After a perfect weekend with lots of sun and warm temperatures, big changes are coming as we begin the new work week. Strong to severe thunderstorms over the central U.S. will move slowly eastward over the next few days.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy with lows in the low 60's.
MONDAY: A transition day as clouds begin to increase in advance of a slow moving and potent system. Skies will be mostly cloudy and a weak front may shave a degree or two off of Monday's high. Late in the day into Monday evening we could see a spotty or isolated shower. Highs Monday will be near 80 and lows in the upper 60's.
TUESDAY TO THURSDAY: A slow moving low with a trailing cold front will move from the Midwest to the Great Lakes. During this time SE NC will be in the warm sector of this approaching system. From time to time disturbances will rotate into the area setting off rounds of scattered showers and thunderstorms. During the afternoon and evening with peak heating some storms could become strong or severe. Highs will be in the low 80's and lows will be in the 60's.
FRIDAY TO SUNDAY: The severe weather threat will diminish behind a front. However isolated showers and thunderstorms are still possible for Friday. Highs drop into the 70's through the period. Saturday features a shot at scattered showers and Sunday is trending mostly sunny. Lows will drop back into the 50's and possibly 40's Sunday morning.
