WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Great to see you late on this Monday. Over the weekend, Caribbean Hurricane Julia swirled into Nicaragua with heavy rain, gusty winds, and storm surge. Early this week, remnants of Julia will continue to bring unsettled weather to much of Central America and southern Mexico. Thankfully, new tropical storm formation is unlikely in the Atlantic Basin in the next couple of days.

Most of the Cape Fear Region has had no measurable rain since Hurricane Ian made its close passage on September 30, but that dry streak is likely to end this week. Clouds could yield a stray sprinkle or period of mainly light rain Monday night, for one. Late Wednesday into Thursday, a passing front will articulate the best odds for a shower or thundershower of the work and school week.

Temperatures will be seasonably mild - within a few degrees of average - for the week ahead.
