First Alert Weather: sunny stretch of weather continues!

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A high pressure system will continue to bring a pleasant spring weather pattern through Thursday. A cold front may initiate a few showers or a storm on Friday. Behind the front, a new high pressure system will build for a dry or mostly dry weekend. Details...

WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND THURSDAY: Since dry air cools down quickly at night and warms up quickly in the day, expect a wide range in temperatures... Lows late Wednesday night will likely be in the cool 40s, but with sunshine, expect pleasant lower 70s for Thursday.

EXTENDED FORECAST: Friday will likely have variable clouds with a scattered coverage of showers and possibly a storm (not a washout) and highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Rain chances will trend way down for the weekend with highs likely 80s for Saturday and 70s for Sunday. Enjoy!
