First Alert Forecast: A backdoor cool front for Monday, but still nice

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - For the most part the next seven days should be fairly quiet.  However an approaching backdoor cool front will add some complication to our forecast through mid week. 

SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY: Tonight will be clear and pleasant with lows in the upper 50's and low 60's.  Monday will be mostly sunny with a backdoor cool front shifting the winds to an easterly direction near the coast.  Afternoon highs will range from the mid 70's at the coast to mid 80's near I-95. 

TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY: The forecast is a tad tricky with the backdoor cool front located near the area.  Right now we think the front lifts to our north Tuesday but could bisect the area on Wednesday.  As a result the warm high pressure ridge to our south will send highs soaring into the mid and upper 80's Tuesday but fall back into the upper 70's Wednesday.  Occasional isolated showers could pass along near the front, especially on Wednesday. 

THURSDAY AND FRIDAY: The front will retreat northward again and it will be back to unseasonably warm temperatures.  Highs will soar into the mid to upper 80's each under sunny to mostly sunny skies.  Lows will be in the mid 60's. 

MOTHER'S DAY WEEKEND: Clouds will increase as a system edges closer to the area.  Isolated shower and thunderstorm chances increase (20% Saturday and 30% Sunday).  Highs will still be in the low 80's.

    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.
