First Alert Forecast: pleasant now but massive warm up ahead

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Good Wednesday evening to you and thanks for checking in! A toasty high pressure system will be an agent of change in your First Alert Forecast: as it builds, temperatures and humidity levels ought to rise dramatically by the weekend. So, if you’re a fan of summer, you’ve got that to look forward to! But, if you like your weather a little cooler and more mellow, this Wednesday night is in your wheelhouse...

The next seven days: Very little change in the pattern with an upper ridge parked over the eastern U.S. Look for hot and humid conditions with highs well into the 80s to near 90. Overnight lows will be in the upper 60s to near 70. There will be occasional pop-up showers or storms but organized rain is not in the cards, so continue to water your gardens and lawns.

Catch your First Alert Forecast for the next seven days for Wilmington below! Of course, you can tap into a full ten-day forecast tailored to your ZIP Code on your WECT Weather App. This weekend, that forecast tailoring shows up as hotter temperatures for inland zones like Whiteville, Elizabethtown, and Burgaw... and readings a touch cooler for beach communities given the ocean influence.
