First Alert Weather: extended forecast features two cold snaps

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A low pressure system that brought a general 0.25 to 0.5 inches of rain from Monday night into Tuesday will be long gone by Tuesday night. Two passing cold fronts - one Wednesday night and one Friday night - will likely be the main players in the extended forecast.

TUESDAY NIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY: Rain chances will be near 0% for the whole period. For Tuesday night, expect areas of locally dense fog and lows in the upper 30s and lower 40s. Wednesday may have patchy fog to start... otherwise partly sunny skies and highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s. 

WEDNESDAY NIGHT INTO THURSDAY: Cold front number one will pass Wednesday night. Expect lows mainly near 32 Thursday morning and highs mainly near 48 Thursday afternoon. Partly cloudy skies and dry weather will be the rule in this period. The exception is a 30% chance of a passing rain or snow shower Wednesday night into Thursday morning.
 
EXTENDED FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS: Temperatures will likely rebound to the upper 50s for highs Friday but Saturday's highs - after the passage of cold front number two - will likely only be in the 40s and Saturday night's lows may be as low as the 20s! Precipitation chances: 10% Friday, 30% Saturday, 0% Sunday.
