First Alert Weather: very icy Thursday night, significant melting begins Friday

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Dangerous travel conditions will continue across southeastern North Carolina Thursday night with a) light showers and b) liquid from partially-melted ice and snow re-freezing. Warmer air will build Friday into the weekend and promote significant melting.

* The National Weather Service has issued an advisory for icy travel tonight. *

THURSDAY NIGHT: Clouds will deposit light showers. Icing and re-freezing is likely with lows mainly in the lower 30s and light north winds. If you must travel, please use extreme caution! 

FRIDAY: Expect partly cloudy skies, a chance of fog, light north breezes, and most importantly: milder high temperatures mainly in the upper 40s to around 50! This warm-up should help promote more significant melting.

WEEKEND: Areas of fog may continue with the milder pattern. Otherwise, expect variable clouds and rain chances growing to near 40% in the case of Sunday. Temperatures will continue to grow too with highs likely near 59 Saturday and near 66 Sunday.
