WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Thanks for checking into your First Alert Forecast on this Monday evening! The upcoming week will feature temperatures ranging from above normal, to seasonable, to slightly below normal. For reference, average high temperatures for mid-February are upper 50s for highs and upper 30s for lows. Also, a series of fronts will bring a few showers and temperature swings through the end of the week.
Tuesday will have a shower risk but modest rain amounts of zero in some cases to at most 0.25 to 0.5 inches ought not to exacerbate swollen rivers much. Instability and wind shear profiles with this rain system appear unfavorable for severe storms but, amid continued warm temperatures, we will monitor the situation closely.
The next cold front will pass Thursday into Friday which will bring a few more showers, possibly a rumble of thunder, mainly Thursday. Cooler air will filter in for Valentine’s Day Friday making for a more seasonable day with a gradual clearing.
