WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good to see you late this Sunday! After a dry and crisp Saturday, we’ve turned our attention to a storm originating from the Gulf, which will continue to bring periods of rain and possibly a few embedded heavy thunderstorms through Sunday evening with rain ending by early Monday morning. Expect drought-denting rainfall tallies of at least an inch or two across southeastern North Carolina through the evening.

After a cool and mostly sunny break for much of Monday and Tuesday, another Gulf-enriched system will bring rain and thunderstorm chances back into the mix on Wednesday. These two systems are expected to put a dent in the ongoing drought.
