WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Saturday evening to you! As you read this, a low pressure system is swirling off the Carolina Coast and it will deliver classic ocean storm impacts to the Cape Fear Region Saturday night and parts of your Sunday. These include:

- overcast skies and significant rainy spells...

- rain tallying one and three inches and locally more...

- localized ponding and poor-drainage flooding...

- few if any instances of severe storms...

- north or northeast winds gusting in excess of 35 mph...

- minor tidal flooding and beach erosion...

- chilly temperatures in the 40s and 50s...

In your longer-range forecast, rain chances assume a lower profile but do not quite go to zero into next week. Near-average or colder-than-average temperatures will accompany the active pattern, too.
