WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Hello on a Monday and thank you for checking into your First Alert Forecast. A stalled cold front will keep chilly temperatures around as high pressure works to scurry away the rainy weather... at least for today in the Cape Fear Region.

- gray clouds with a few light to moderate showers early, then a break or two in the clouds with dropping odds for showers by the afternoon.

- cool northerly breezes of around 5-10 mph with a few gusts upwards of 15-20 mph.

- slightly warmer temperatures in the upper 50s and lower 60s to the south.
