WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Great to see you this evening. Your Sunday featured ample sunshine amid a few passing clouds. Highs climbed well into the 80s, with 90s mixing in on the mainland.

Monday features a continuation of the mainly dry pattern we have seen since late last week. It should be a tad hotter and more humid. At least a few spots may see a stray shower or storm.

Your planning forecast features growing chances for rain this week as a cold front stalls across the Carolinas. High temperatures should hover below seasonable levels through Wednesday. Heat, humidity, and growing thunderstorm chances will be the story Thursday into the Fourth of July weekend.

The tropics are getting a little busier, the National Hurricane Center is watching a tropical wave in the east-central Atlantic which has a good chance to develop later this week. Another tropical low could develop in the northern Gulf of Mexico late in the week.
