WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Sunshine will return to southeastern North Carolina, thanks to a front and high pressure swept in on the backside of Florence. While temperatures may have a summery feel in the short-term, temperatures in the afternoon will gradually trend lower by the weekend and early next week. This pleasant weather will no doubt aide in the recovery efforts taking place regionally.

National Weather Service-issued Flash Flood Warnings continue for all of southeastern North Carolina.

WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY: Enjoy abundant sunshine, cooler, drier breezes and few clouds, as northerly high pressure makes its presence felt in the Carolinas. Temperatures will top out in the middle and upper 80s during the day and fall to the upper 60s and low 70s at night. Widespread lowland flooding will continue to be unavoidable; some spots that have never flooded will flood, especially along rivers and estuaries. Read more about the record-setting river levels here.

THE WEEKEND AND BEYOND: Autumn arrives at 9:54 p.m. Saturday with the Autumnal Equinox. Overall, high pressure moves away, allowing level moisture to return, promoting sea breeze shower and storm chances of about 20-30% during this time. Temperatures are forecast for the middle or low 80s during the day and middle and upper 60s at night.
