First Alert Forecast: mild temps stay as rainy pattern settles in

Your First Alert forecast for Monday evening Mar. 2, 2020

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Monday evening to you and thanks for checking into your First Alert Forecast! Southwest breezes warmed afternoon highs into the upper 60s and lower 70s across the Cape Fear Region on this second day of March. A front will focus the return of rain chances this evening and they will last for much of the week ahead.

- Showers should come without cold temperatures, so the chance for precipitation to convert to late-season snow or ice looks to be near zero.

- By the end of the work week, rain will likely have tallied to one to three inches. Major flooding is unlikely but spotty lowland flooding is possible.

- Right now, the severe storm risk appears low this week as wind shear and instability profiles are underwhelming. We will monitor in case of changes!

The unsettled weather pattern will wrap up heading into Friday and “spring forward” weekend. Also, temperatures will cool off to the 50s for afternoon highs over the weekend with overnight lows in the chilly 30s. Both weekend mornings will be susceptible to patchy frost amid bright sunshine in the afternoon.
