WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

The last in a series of low pressure systems will take a stormy swipe at the Cape Fear Region Wednesday. Expect a drier, less humid, and more settled weather trend for Thursday and even more so Friday as a high pressure system builds into the region.

WEDNESDAY FORECAST DETAILS: Variably to mostly cloudy skies will deliver additional scattered showers and locally heavy, gusty storms. Please stay alert! Also, expect continued balmy south breezes and highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s.

** The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for the entire Cape Fear Region through Wednesday evening. If you are driving and encounter a water-covered roadway, please turn around and find an alternate route. **

THURSDAY FORECAST DETAILS: Expect partly to variably cloudy skies. Isolated to scattered showers and storms may develop but, overall, rain coverage is likely to be lower than previous days. Afternoon highs are again likely to be within a few degrees of 80.

FRIDAY FORECAST DETAILS: Enjoy sunny or partly cloudy skies and, at most, an isolated shower or two. Lower humidity levels will accompany the lower rain chances, light west breezes, and afternoon highs mainly in the lower 80s.

FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS FOR THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND: Daily highs are likely to swell into the 80s. Partly cloudy and dry skies ought to the rule. The exception: a chance for a shower or storm near 10% Saturday and near 30% Sunday and Memorial Day.
