WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Great to see you late on this Monday. Your First Alert Forecast features a drop in temperatures after a stretch of record-setting days. Remember, sunset will come at an early 5:13 p.m.!

As cooler northeasterly breezes dig in a bit more by midweek, high temperatures should slip back to the seasonable upper 60s and lower 70s for Tuesday and Wednesday, for example. Expect a strong cold front to deliver even more substantial chill - possibly including the threat of frost - by early next week.

Amid these temperature transitions, newly formed Subtropical Storm Nicole is likely to hook from the Bahamas toward the Carolinas. And while many question marks surround the exact details of the evolution of this system, periods of coastal gales, rough surf, and minor tidal flooding appear probable from midweek to Veterans Day and possibly early Saturday. For now, rain chances may be described as 0 to 10% from Monday to Election Tuesday to Wednesday, 40% Thursday, and 70% Veterans Day Friday. With 2022 rain deficits of ten to twenty inches across the Cape Fear Region, any rain would be useful!
