WILMINGTON, NC. -- A low pressure system moving through North Carolina today will bring rain across the region Monday into Tuesday. Severe storms may be possible along the coast Monday night.
Grab the umbrellas today! Rain will begin spreading in from the southeast throughout the day Monday with heavy rain expected for areas farther inland towards and west of I-95. With the center of circulation of this low pressure system pushing just to the west of the coast, we'll be placed in what's the "warm sector" of this system Monday night. This will create for a unstable, moist airmass which may allow for thunderstorms to form. Hence, the entire North Carolina coast has been put under a "Marginal" threat for severe storms Monday night with the main threat being damaging winds and the potential for an isolated tornado.
Scattered showers and storms will linger into Tuesday before high pressure brings slightly drier weather for Wednesday. Wednesday will also be much cooler, as highs only manage to top off in the upper 40s to low 60s.
An additional system will begin to move in from the south Wednesday night into Thursday before dry weather resumes Friday into the upcoming weekend.
