WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Happy Super Bowl Sunday! It’s been a soaker of a weekend for the Cape Fear. Wilmington’s already grabbed over two inches of rain since Friday and could pick up even more from a residual shower or two through late tonight. Most locations in the area can expect, in total, between one and three inches of beneficial rainfall.

The storm system will be long gone as you wake up on Monday. Monday and Valentine’s Day feature mostly sunny skies and mild highs in the lower 60s after starting off in the upper 30s and lower 40s. Warmer 70s and increasing rain chance are expected mid to late week. Another cold front will drop highs back into the chilly lower 50s by next weekend.
