First Alert Weather: A few t-storms this evening, more great weather ahead

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Scattered gusty showers will move across the area this evening.  For the most part the extended forecast will feature lots of sun and mild spring temperatures!

TUESDAY EVENING: Scattered showers will move across the area this evening but late tonight skies will clear as a cool front clears the coast.  Lows will drop into the upper 50's. 
 
WEDNESDAY TO FRIDAY: Mostly to partly sunny each day.  Highs rise from the low 70s Wednesday and Thursday to near 80 on Friday.  Lows moderate from the mid 40s Thursday morning to the low 60s Saturday morning.  There is 20% chance of a quick shower or t-storm on Friday. 
 
THE WEEKEND: Saturday will be mostly sunny and very warm with highs in the low 80's.  A dry backdoor cool front will knock about ten degrees off of Sunday highs. 
 
It is interesting to note that another system will move through with little or no severe weather potential.  Data from the Storm Prediction Center shows that April tornado activity across the U.S. has run below to well below normal for the last three years!
