First Alert Forecast: A perfect Saturday but changes for Sunday

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - An upper disturbance will pass over the Carolinas Sunday afternoon.  This system will bring scattered showers and thunderstorms late in the day.  High pressure brings more great weather early in the new week. 

SATURDAY NIGHT: Mostly clear skies and cool temperatures.  Overnight lows will be in the low 50's. 

SUNDAY: An upper-atmosphere disturbance will generate variable clouds and a good chance of scattered afternoon and early evening showers and thunderstorms.  These storms could produce gusty winds and some hail.  Highs will only reach the mid 70's.  As skies clear late Sunday night it will be cool again with lows in the low 50's. 

MONDAY AND TUESDAY: High pressure takes control.  That means more great weather!  Both days will be sunny with highs in the upper 70's to near 80.  Lows will be cool, ranging from the upper 40's to mid 50's. 

WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY: The headline is "The heat returns!".  High pressure moves offshore and another strong ridge builds along the Gulf coast.  Skies will be partly sunny with highs soaring into the mid and upper 80's.  Overnight lows warm back into the 60's.  A few afternoon thunderstorms could return Thursday afternoon.
