First Alert Weather: nice spring weather for a few days, cold makes an eventual comeback

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A high pressure system will bring a pleasant spring weather pattern for the end of the week and at least the first half of the weekend. A cold front will pass Saturday night or Sunday and lay the foundation for a chilly storm system that may impact the area next Tuesday. Details...

THURSDAY NIGHT AND FRIDAY:
Expect mostly clear skies Thursday night and mostly sunny skies Friday. Temperatures will chill to the jacket-worthy upper 30s and lower 40s early Friday morning but then rebound nicely to the upper 60s and lower 70s Friday afternoon. Also: breezes will be light and variable and rain chances will stay near 0%.

WEEKEND: Saturday will have partly sunny skies, warm southwest breezes, inland highs in the 70s, beach highs in the 60s, and a low (20%) shower chance. The aforementioned cold front will bring a 40% shower chance for Sunday and also variable clouds and cooler high temperatures - mainly upper 50s to lower 60s.

NEXT WEEK: Monday will likely be partly cloudy and cool with highs in the 50s. The aforementioned storm system will likely bring a rainy and raw Tuesday with temperatures mainly in the 30s and 40s - ouch. Post-storm: expect a brighter Wednesday and Thursday with highs in the 50s and 60s, respectively. Sub-freezing temperatures will be possible Wednesday night.
