WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Arctic chill is in the process of exiting southeast North Carolina. Afternoon highs will moderate back to the seasonable 50s for the remainder of the week.

THURSDAY FORECAST DETAILS: The morning should start off in the 30s and finish close to 60, while remaining dry. Winds will be breezy at times, and may produce wind chill values in the 20s and 30s during the morning hours. Clouds should build in during the nighttime.

LONG-RANGE FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS:  Rain chances look slim come Friday, but additional clouds are expected for the afternoon. Saturday and Sunday will max out in the 50s and 60s respectively, amid sunny or partly sunny skies.  Early next week, rain chances will rise to 30%. Low temperatures Friday through the weekend will remain in the 30s and 40s, and by the start of next week, may only reach the low 50s, thanks to shower activity.

TROPICS: The 2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season officially ended November 30. Off-season tropical storm development is rare, but if a system were to develop in December, it would get the name "Sean". Take a look back at the awfully active 2017 season HERE.
