First Alert Forecast: Summertime weather through the weekend with heat and humidity slowly on the rise

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A stationary front will remain offshore through Sunday. This front will shift towards the west and remain along the Carolina coasts Monday and Tuesday and dissipate by Wednesday. High pressure will build into the area later this week, but a cold front approaches the east coast by the end of the week. Here's the breakdown...

TONIGHT: After a cooler than average and dreary day, we'll see the clouds linger across the eastern Carolinas. No thunder is expected, but there is a slight chance for an isolated shower this evening and overnight. Low temperatures will drop to the mid 60s well inland and the upper 60s to near 70 along the coast.

SUNDAY: The system that spread clouds across southeast North Carolina on Saturday is expected to lift to the northeast, which will leave a bit of dry air and sunnier skies for our Sunday. A weak high pressure system will continue to move in from the north. You can expect another comfortable day of high temperatures in the mid to upper 80s with low temperatures in the low 70s.

MONDAY AND TUESDAY: You'll begin to notice the humidity rising with high temperatures back in the upper 80s. Lows return to the 70s. As deeper moisture moves in from the south, both days will feature a chance for scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening. 

EXTENDED FORECAST: Hot and humid conditions will prevail ahead of another cold front with scattered showers and storms for Thursday and Friday. Highs return to the low 90's with the mugginess making a comeback. Humid overnight lows will remain in the mid 70s. 

TROPICS: Tropical storm development is not likely in the Atlantic Basin (including the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, and Gulf of Mexico) through the weekend.
