WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Monday evening to you! It was a gorgeous Monday afternoon with the high in Wilmington soaring to 78 degrees. Big change begins tonight as a cold front moves through the region. A few stray light showers are possible late overnight into Tuesday morning.

Get set for readings in the more seasonable upper 40s to perhaps lower 50s Tuesday morning. Tuesday afternoon will be mostly cloudy to overcast with a stiff northeast breeze. As a result highs will be stuck in the lower to middle 50s.

By midweek, a separate, wetter frontal system remains likely to generate some needed rain. A chance of 60% Wednesday should inspire you to have your umbrella on stand-by; we will keep you updated on the timing and trends.
