WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - After its extremely powerful strike on southeastern Louisiana Sunday, Now Tropical Depression Ida will weaken further as it tracks inland and merges with an eastbound front in the week ahead. Accordingly, your First Alert Forecast features shower and gusty storm odds, initially at 0-10% through Tuesday, ticking up to around 50% by Wednesday.

Ahead of the front, Wilmington and the Cape Fear Region will continue to roast with daily high temperatures in the lower and middle 90s through Tuesday. Please stay rested, hydrated, and neighborly! After the front, more seasonable middle and upper 80s are more likely for latter parts of the work week and much of Labor Day weekend.
