WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Wednesday to you and thanks for checking in!

- numerous showers, isolated poor-drainage flood-inducing downpours, and total rainfall possibly exceeding one inch.

- isolated thunderstorm cells or line segments with brief bouts of lightning, intense winds, and/ or small hail.

- whipping southwesterly winds with gusts over 30 mph, even independent of any of the strong showers or storms.
