WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Your First Alert Forecast opens with another day of “natural air conditioning”. Brisk northerly breezes will keep muggy air at bay and prevent temperatures from warming much past the middle 70s and 50s at night.

Keep it safe in the 70-degree surf. Strong north-to-south longshore currents, rip currents, and occasional minor tidal flooding will remain probable through the week - especially but certainly not exclusively for east-facing beaches.

Last week, a storm system brought rain that benefited many but not all Cape Fear gardens. Soon, this system will return from the east and pump shower chances from near 0% Tuesday night and Wednesday to more respectable levels by Thursday and Friday. High temperatures will return to the 80s this weekend and early next week along with noticeably higher humidity levels.
