WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Great to see you late on this Wednesday. After many hot weeks, Wilmington and most of the Cape Fear Region has now gone six days without feeling 90+ temperatures. And it looks like more are coming.

The muggy summer air will sponsor a 20% chance for a passing shower or storm Thursday, but rain and storm odds ramp up into the 50-60% range Thursday night through the weekend. We don’t expect washouts but most of the area should see several inches of rain over the next seven days. Wilmington averages a healthy 8.16 inches of August rain and, so far in August 2022, the Port City has only netted 1.99 inches.

Thankfully, new tropical storm development remains unlikely across the Atlantic Basin this Wednesday.
