Your First Alert Forecast from Sun. evening on April, 12, 2020

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Happy Easter Sunday to you! I hope you are enjoying this lovely weekend so far.

Clouds will build this evening and through the evening as a frontal systems moves into the Carolinas. A chance for a few showers this evening, but the real threat will be the mid morning hours through lunchtime Monday. The Storm Prediction Center has parts of the Cape Fear Region under an enhanced risk for severe weather Monday. Be on the lookout for:

-heavy 1″+ rains and ponded roadways.

-gusty winds with damaging bursts embedded in storms.

-small hail and isolated tornadoes.

Our saving grace would be unfavorable timing and / or marine air that would take the bite out of these severe storms. However, you will want to stay close to your phone and your FREE WECT First Alert Weather app, should a storm warning be issued for your location.
