First Alert Forecast: Warm and humid for Mother's Day; a few t-storms possible

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Small shower and thunderstorm chances return for Mother's Day.  The upper high pressure ridge will assert itself again early in the new week.   Details...

SUNDAY: Warm and humid thanks to a Bermuda high parked offshore.  The environment should be a little more conducive for a few spotty to isolated showers and t-storms in the afternoon.  Highs will be in the mid 80's and lows in the mid 60's. 

MONDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY: The upper high pressure ridge asserts itself once again.  That means another stretch of unseasonably and mostly dry weather.  A leftover spot shower or t-storm is possible but Tuesday and Wednesday are trending dry.  Highs each day will be in the upper 80's to near 90.  Low 90's are a good bet near I-95.  Overnight lows will be in the upper 60's. 

THURSDAY AND FRIDAY: A cool front approaches from the west.  Scattered showers and thunderstorms are likely Thursday with some storms possibly lingering into Friday.  There could be a few strong to severe storms with this system.  Highs fall into the low 80's Thursday and upper 70's Friday.
