First Alert Forecast: more much needed rain soon

Your First Alert forecast for Monday evening Oct. 14, 2019

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Monday evening to you and thanks for checking in! Most of the Cape Fear Region received several tenths of an inch of dust-settling, garden-wetting, and all-around well-needed rain as a front settled in Sunday night, and this front will play the lead role in your First Alert Forecast for much of the week ahead.

Near the stalled front, additional rain chances will function at a modest into Tuesday and then a healthier 70%-80% Tuesday night and Wednesday. After Wednesday, a puff of very cool, crisp autumnal air will finally push the front away for sunny 60s Thursday afternoon and clear 40s Thursday night.

This last note is a biggie for this 65th anniversary of Hurricane Hazel week: the Carolinas will face zero tropical storm threats all week.
