WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Happy Monday! Yesterday, Wilmington officially picked up 1.79″ of rain; its highest one day rainfall tally since Hurricane Ian on September 30. This effectively cut the rainfall deficit for the month of January by about 75%. Another beneficial shot of rain is expected Wednesday, which will eat away at another chunk of the remaining month-to-date deficit. In the meantime, rain chances will hover in the 10% range Monday and drop to 0% Monday night and Tuesday.

Temperatures will strive for the seasonably brisk middle and upper 5os Monday and Tuesday and take a dip to near freezing Monday night. Southwesterly winds will bring temperatures to the middle and upper 60s ahead of our next cold front.
