WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Happy Sunday to you! Today featured humid air but cooler temperature highs in the lower and middle 80s. Monday also appears to feature marginally cooler weather but, generally, no wholesale changes to the sticky midsummer pattern appear to be on the horizon.

Rain odds through Sunday evening will be north of 70% before gradually decreasing into Monday. Additional showers and locally heavy storms will continue to make real drought improvements with most backyards and gardens receiving several inches of rain into early this week. Rain chances are expected to climb again later in the week.

On the tropical front, a low pressure system currently over the southeastern US is expected to slowly drift offshore into the northern Gulf of Mexico where developmental odds are low the next five days. Regardless of development, this system will likely bring heavy rainfall across the Gulf coastline through the next few days.
