First Alert Weather: Warm weather continues

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The mild weather will continue to dominate SE North Carolina through Tuesday.  Showers and a few thunderstorms are possible Wednesday and another shot of cold air is likely by Thursday. 

MONDAY AND TUESDAY: Both days will be sunny and mild with highs in the low to mid 70's.  Perfect weather for any outdoor plans.  Lows Monday night will be near 50 and lows Tuesday night will be in the mid 50's. 

WEDNESDAY: Clouds will increase in advance of a strong cold front.  Highs should top 70 once again.  Later in the day we will likely see a round of scattered showers and thunderstorms.  Right now we think the severe weather risk is low.  Behind the front look for some clearing Wednesday night and a low near 40.

THURSDAY AND FRIDAY: Old man winter returns!  Thursday will feature decreasing clouds, a stiff northerly breeze, and highs shy of the 50 degree mark with a surge of modified Arctic cold. Thursday night will be cold with lows dipping into the upper 20's.  Friday will be sunny and cool with highs in the mid 50's.  Friday will be clear and not as cold with lows in the upper 30's. 

SATURDAY AND SUNDAY: Mostly to partly sunny and milder with highs in the mid 60's.  Lows moderate back into the 40's.
