Your First Alert forecast for Thursday evening Jun. 13, 2019

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Thursday evening to you! June has thus far offered Wilmington a dust-settling, garden-quenching, and drought-denting 1.92 inches of rain. A bit more in some backyards! The time has come for a dry high pressure system to lower the odds for showers and storms heading into Father’s Day weekend. As you catch your seven-day planning forecast here, check some event forecasts coming up...

Tonight: Over the next few hours there is a slim shower shot in advance of a cool front. Later tonight skies will clear with lows in the upper 50s and low 60s.

Friday: If you plan on staying “hi” to the WECT team at the Blueberry Festival for Highway 6 we couldn’t give you a better day to do so! After a front moves through Thursday night, enjoy lower humidity, mostly sunny skies and temperatures mainly in the 80s.

Weekend: High pressure will be in the driver’s seat as Father’s Day approaches Sunday. Any plans outside will be a go! Enjoy mostly sunny skies both days and temperatures in the middle 80s Saturday then growing to near 90 for Father’s Day Sunday.
