WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Long-range computer forecast models suggest a breezy, warm, and wet front may scoot through the Cape Fear Region early next week. Meanwhile, for the rest of this week into the weekend, a broad high pressure cell will likely preserve dry weather and nurture a subtle warming trend.

WEDNESDAY FORECAST DETAILS: Enjoy more sunshine and blue skies with even fewer cirrus clouds than Tuesday. After a chilly start, afternoon temperatures are likely to crest in the seasonable lower 70s. North or northeast breezes will flow at mainly 5 to 15 mph speeds.

EXTENDED FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS: Expect nights in the 50s for most of the rest of the week. Enjoy sun, rain chances near 0%, and daytime highs mainly in the 70s for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. 80s could mix in for Sunday. Useful rain chances will trend upward Monday into Tuesday.

TROPICS: October is statistically the third most active month of Atlantic Hurricane Season. New tropical storm development is possible within a broad area of disturbed weather between the Bahamas and Bermuda through midweek. Regardless, this system poses no threat to the U.S.
