WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - After a mild Tuesday with a lot of clouds, a cool front arriving this evening will clear things out and cool things down tonight into Wednesday. Expect lots of sun and highs in the 60s Wednesday and Thursday with lows in the chilly 40s. We don’t expect a lot of variability in temperatures over the next seven days. A potent coastal low heads this way to end the week. Good news! The Atlantic tropics are quiet and nothing is expected to form in the next 2-5 days!

Compared to temperatures, rain chances will be much more variable:

- near 0% for Wednesday as dry air becomes firmly entrenched

- 10% Thursday as a low pressure system approaches from the southwest

- a more substantial 80% Friday this breezy system streaks through

- 20-30% for Saturday and Sunday to account for any “leftover” energy
