WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Sunday evening to you! Hope you had a great weekend! A high pressure system continues to steer needed rain systems away, but at least that was a good thing for weekend outdoor plans.

Highs crested in the upper 70s and lower 80s with variable clouds. There was no rain to be found around southeast North Carolina, best to water after sunset if your plants are thirsty.

Slightly muggier air will bleed into the Cape Fear Region in the coming days. Low-end pop-up shower and thundershower chances will hinge on daytime warming and the sea breeze front early in the week. Expect a trend towards hotter and even drier conditions mid week into next weekend. Widespread rain chances will be hard to come by. Catch your seven-day planning forecast for Wilmington right here.
