First Alert Forecast: stormy pattern to settle-down in time for weekend!

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The storm system that has brought days of unsettled and even severe weather to the region is departing. Expect a trend of lower rain chances and seasonable temperatures. Details...

REST OF THURSDAY NIGHT: Expect clouds with some clearer breaks. A shower is possible but thunder will become less likely as cooler, less-humid air enters on a west breeze flow. Expect late-night lows in the upper 50s and lower 60s.

FRIDAY: A cooler breeze flow - out of the north for a change - will keep our atmosphere stabilized under clouds. So, while there may be a few showers at times, the risk for strong storms will be far less than previous days. Highs: mainly lower 70s.

WEEKEND: Overall, expect nice conditions for the first weekend of May! Saturday will likely feature partly cloudy skies, only a small chance of showers, and highs in the 70s. And for Sunday, enjoy sun and highs near 80!

A PEEK INTO NEXT WEEK: A warm high pressure system will control our weather most of the time. With it, expect clear to partly cloudy skies and low rain chances. Daily highs will likely grow from the 70s and lower 80s early in the week to deeper into the 80s later in the week.

    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.
