First Alert Forecast: risk of scattered showers, possibly strong storms, remains

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A powerful storm system will certainly bring severe thunderstorms to the Southeast U.S. through Thursday. How many of those individual storm cells actually affect southeastern North Carolina remains to be seen, but given the conditional severe weather threat, we encourage you to remain weather-aware and regularly monitor WECT, wect.com, and the First Alert Weather Forecast App. Details...

TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY: Expect variable clouds, warm and humid south breezes, temperatures in the 70s and 80s, and scattered showers and storms. Given the scattered nature of the shower and storm cells, not all spots will get hit. However, those spots that do could receive highly-disruptive weather. Risk of downpours and lightning with any storms = HIGH. Risk of hail, high winds, and isolated tornados = LOW / MEDIUM.

EXTENDED FORECAST: As the powerful storm system finally loosens its grip on the Southeast, the risk of lingering showers will remain for Friday and possibly part of Saturday but diminish to almost zero for Sunday and Monday. Also expect slightly cooler and less humid air to build during this time. Daily high temperatures will likely fall short of the 80s Friday through Sunday. Enjoy!
