WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

A sprawling northern high pressure system will share cool and crisp fall weather with the Carolinas through midweek. Warmer air will return by the weekend but humidity ought to stay manageable.

TUESDAY FORECAST DETAILS: Enjoy sunshine and deep blue skies. Temperatures will climb to afternoon highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s amid nippy north breezes of mainly 10 to 15 mph. Expect another crisp, some would consider chilly, night as lows fall into the middle and low 40s with cool north breezes. 

WEDNESDAY FORECAST DETAILS: Sweater weather continues into midweek as 40s will greet you as you step out the door in the morning. Although with plenty of sunshine in place, high temperatures will only reach the low 70s. Clear skies overnight will allow lows to fall into the 50s. 

EXTENDED FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS: For the remainder of the week, expect mostly sunny skies and dry conditions as the cool, crisp weather pattern continues. Afternoon high temperatures will reach the 70s and lows will fall to the 50s and 40s in backyards. A gradual warming trend is expected through the week but the summer-time humidity is a thing of the past now. Rain chances will remain at 0-10%, at best before increasing early next week to around 20-30%.

TROPICS: New tropical storm development is possible within a broad area of disturbed weather between the Bahamas and Bermuda through midweek. Regardless, the system poses no threat to the U.S.
