WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Tuesday to you and thanks for checking your First Alert Forecast forecast for the Cape Fear Region! Early October features average high temperatures near 80 degrees but a strong high pressure ridge will continue to bring readings well above that baseline: mainly upper 80s to near 90 Wednesday, and lower 90s Thursday and Friday. By this weekend, the heat ridge is likely to contract so as to allow a weekend cold front to flex south and deliver daytime temperatures mainly in the 70s!

And last but not least: there are no definable tropical storm threats to the Carolinas or the United States through Wednesday, but we urge you to remain vigilant through the traditionally active month of October.
