Your First Alert Forecast from Sun. morning, Oct. 20, 2019

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Sunday to you! I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far!

Post-Tropical Cyclone Nestor will bring showers and embedded storms early on your Sunday, but by mid to late morning, the system will quickly move offshore, leaving behind a few manageable sprinkles for the Lower Cape Fear Region.

Warm air moving in from the south behind Nestor’s remnants will boost temperatures Sunday and to start the week into the mid to upper 70s during the day, dropping to the lower 60s overnight Monday.

A storm system will move through Tuesday, increasing our chances for showers and storms to about 50% as it crosses southeast North Carolina. This front may bring strong to severe storms ahead of it, and will kick out the warm air as highs will drop back into the lower 70s to finish the week.
