WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Happy Sunday to you! After a stretch of very hot and mainly dry weather, southeastern North Carolina has transitioned to slightly cooler, more humid, and wetter weather. Clouds have rolled in--strong isolated showers and storms remain possible throughout the evening with the risk of a few hitting severe criteria.

Even better rain chances arrive early this week. Scattered showers and storms should bring beneficial rain to most lawns and gardens. The forecast is trending drier as we move towards Memorial Day weekend, which is great for your beach and pool plans.

The 2022 Atlantic Hurricane Season is just over a week away! Our first tropical disturbance is located over the north-central Gulf of Mexico whilst producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms. As of now, developmental odds remain low in the next two to five days. However, this system could allow for more moisture to head our way in the coming days.
