WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - The Cape Fear Region has had three gorgeous days of dryness and Monday and Tuesday ought to make one and possibly two more. Your First Alert Forecast features a generous supply of sunshine and afternoon high temperatures in the August-like upper 80s and lower 90s for these days. And in between: expect readings to take a trip to the more September-like middle and upper 60s for lows Monday night.

In the busy tropics: rainy Tropical Storm Nicholas will creep into southern Texas through midweek. Tropical depression formation is possible several hundred miles off the Carolina Coast by the end of this week with few if any impacts on the Cape Fear Region in any case. And lastly, Africa’s Cabo Verde tropical wave season has not yet shut down; a couple of disturbances in this far eastern tropical Atlantic region will require monitoring in the days and weeks ahead.
