WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good to see you late this Sunday! Your First Alert Forecast opens with continued odds of showers and thunderstorms: 60% Sunday night and Monday. Scattered storms may become locally severe--so make sure you stay weather aware! The greatest threats are gusty winds and heavy rainfall; though, other severe elements are possible. An approaching cold front to our west will keep the pattern unsettled for much of the new workweek as it stalls along the coast midweek. Expect muggy lows in the 70s with highs held at bay in the lower and middle 80s thanks to clouds and high rain chances. Thanks for staying alert!

Another tropical wave lingers just west of the Cabo Verde Islands. Fortunately, as of now, this disturbance carries low odds of developing into a Tropical Storm. “No definable Carolina threats” continues to be a blessing to be able to say!
