WEATHER: Saturday morning storms

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – It's another perfect day here across eastern North Carolina with highs in the upper 70s and low 80s as high pressure starts t transition off shore the warmer air is expected to move thermometers into the 80s on Friday ahead of a potent cold front.  This front will bring showers and thunderstorms late Friday into Saturday morning.

Timing:  Ahead of the line some thunderstorms may develop.  These will move west to east through our area late Friday evening.  Current model data indicates that the squall line itself will move through (again west to east) from 3:00 AM though 8:00AM on Saturday morning, clearing up as we head into the middle of the day.  While no severe weather is expected, we can't rule out a heavy and breezy thunderstorm during the near dawn hours particularly near the North Carolina coastline. 

Conditions will clear and temperatures will run in the upper 60s Saturday and Sunday afternoon.  Some showers may work back onshore for Monday.
