First Alert Weather: dry weather holds into Thursday, scattered showers possible Friday

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A weak high pressure system will bring dry weather and variable clouds into Thursday. A front will stall near our coast late in the week and the weekend with more clouds and possible showers.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT FORECAST: Expect variable clouds. Some fog and / or mist patches may develop. Temperatures will dip to the upper 50s and low 60s for lows amid light west breezes.

THURSDAY FORECAST: Fog and / or mist will be possible to start. Otherwise, expect variable clouds. Rain chance: 10%. Any sunshine that fights through the clouds will team with light southwest breezes to boost temperatures deep into the 70s to locally even lower 80s. 

EXTENDED FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS: Rain chances: 30% Friday, 40% Saturday, 30% Sunday. Total washouts are unlikely. Temperatures will reach the 70s each day. Next week looks mainly dry with a cooling temperature trend.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK: New tropical storm formation is not likely in the Atlantic Basin (including the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, and Atlantic Ocean itself) though the latter parts of this week.

First Alert Meteorologists Gannon Medwick, Colin Hackman, Eric Davis, and Iisha Scott will keep you updated.
