WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Tropical systems Jose and Maria will churn to the northeast and southeast of the Cape Fear Region, respectively, through this forecast period. In between, a tranquil high pressure system is likely to grace our local weather most of the time. Fall officially arrives at 4:02 p.m. Friday.

TUESDAY FORECAST DETAILS: Enjoy partly to even mostly sunny skies, light northwest breezes, and highs mainly in the mid to upper 80s. Thanks to offshore Jose: heavy surf, rip currents, and minor high tidal flooding will remain likely. Thanks for exercising caution!

EXTENDED FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS: From Wednesday through Monday, enjoy daily highs in the 80s and nighttime temperatures in the 60s and 70s. Shower and storm chances will peak at 20 to 30% Thursday and Friday. Between Jose and Maria: heavy surf and rip current risks may continue.
