First Alert Weather: risk of a few more April showers... then near-perfect weather!

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The low pressure system that brought our recent showers and storms will gradually yield to a drier high pressure system in the couple of days. Looks great for the Azalea Festival and any other outdoor events late this week and this weekend! Details...

TUESDAY NIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY: Expect variable clouds. A passing shower may still occur. Breezes will be light and mainly north or northwest. Lows Tuesday night: mainly low 50s. Highs Wednesday: mainly upper 60s, perhaps a few low 70s mixing.

EXTENDED FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS: For Thursday into the weekend, enjoy a period of sunny or partly sunny days with highs at least as high as the 70s! Our next storm system will bring a renewed shower / storm chance early next week (30% Monday, 50% Tuesday).

    Today, satellites and supercomputers have vastly improved hurricane forecasting and warning. But one of our age's best tools for communicating a hurricane threat, the National Hurricane Center's official “forecast cone," can be misrepresented and is often misunderstood.
