First Alert Forecast: cooler and wetter trend continues, drier and warmer to start the week

Your First Alert Forecast from Sun. morning, Aug 25, 2019

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Sunday, friends! Thanks for checking in to your First Alert Weather Team. Yesterday’s rain provided showers for some but not all. Thanks to northerly high pressure, you can expect plenty of clouds, but few showers. Shower and storm chances will function around 20% for the day and through the early work week.

Temperatures continue their cooler trends in the lower 80s thanks to a northerly breeze flow. Overnight lows will hang in the middle and upper 60s. These are temperatures akin to late-September than late-August!

In the tropics: Tropical Storm Dorian remains several hundred miles east of the Lesser Antilles. Conditions are favorable for additional strengthening by the middle of the week. Meanwhile, a thunderstorm cluster off the Southeast U.S. coast has good odds of becoming “Erin” early this week as the aforementioned front draws it northeast. Its track will likely take it comfortably east of the Cape Fear Region with its closest pass coming Monday. Your First Alert Weather Team will monitor the front / tropical interplay closely just in case.
