WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Happy Sunday to you! Your First Alert Forecast maintains seasonable 80s to locally around 90 for daily high temperatures through the final days of August. Overnight lows will remain in the lower and middle 70s with a slight dip behind a front late this week.

Pop-up shower and storm chances are expected through Sunday night. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are likely for Monday and Tuesday as a coastal trough funnels in moisture. Lower rain odds are expected to make a return by midweek.

In the tropics, the National Hurricane Center is now tracking four tropical waves in the Atlantic. A strong tropical wave, Invest 91-L, in the east-central Atlantic now has a high chance of development over the next five days. It has a good chance of becoming a Tropical Depression by the middle of this week as it moves west-northwest around 10-15 miles per hour toward the waters east of the Leeward Islands. Two other disturbances, one in the Caribbean and another getting ready to move off the African coast, have low development odds. Finally, a new tropical wave has formed east of Bermuda, it too has a low chance of development over the next five days. So, for yet another day, the Carolinas face no definable threats.
