WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) – Had enough rain lately? Clouds, fog, and mist will stay for Tuesday but, for most daytime hours, odds for a measurable rain shower should stay low, near 30% or less. Please be alert for a higher chance for a gusty shower or rogue severe storm overnight Monday. Temperatures will hold mainly in the 50s during this period; a brief spike to the 60s will support said storm chance Monday night.
A refreshing and at least partially sunny break from the gloomy pattern appears probable Wednesday ahead of more shower chances Wednesday night through early Friday. A realignment of the jet stream pattern will translate to, at long last, a more wholesale drier change for the Cape Fear Region and Carolinas beginning this weekend.
In the meantime, expect widespread standing water, scattered lowland flooding, and minor main-stem river flooding for the week ahead.
