First Alert Forecast: summer weather sticking around

Your First Alert Forecast for Monday evening Sep. 9, 2019

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Monday evening to you! A round of isolated strong to severe thunderstorms will end this evening as the sun goes down and we lose the heating of a day where we saw the high in Wilmington hit 94. Look for partly cloudy skies overnight and lows in the 70s.

Expect similar rain chances Tuesday with drier weather for the rest of the week. Summery highs in the mid and upper 80s will continue all week with lows hovering near 70.

In the tropics: Tropical Storm Gabrielle continues its nonthreatening posture over the wide-open North Atlantic Ocean. Elsewhere in the tropics: there are no imminent or definable threats but two waves of low pressure near and east of the Caribbean islands continue to garner low to medium five-day development odds.
