WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good to see you this Sunday! Your First Alert Forecast opens with a gradual warming trend into the week ahead with 90s in sight once again! Low shower and storm chances are credited to high pressure moving into the Cape Fear Region.

As the aforementioned front lingers about and a weak tropical storm - now garnering the first 2022 name of Alex - passes to the south, your First Alert Forecast features a continued chance for a passing shower through late Sunday. Any such rain cells would likely travel east to west, owing to the circulation of the tropical system. Beachgoers: please note that the risk of rip currents may be elevated for a couple of days starting Sunday, so keep it safe in the 78-degree surf and “When in doubt, don’t go out!” Breezy east-northeast winds and high temperatures from the upper 70s to middle 80s round out your Sunday forecast.
