First Alert Forecast: more sunshine for Thursday...warming trend ahead

Your First Alert Forecast for Wednesday evening Nov. 20, 2019

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Wednesday evening to you and thanks for checking into your First Alert Forecast for the Cape Fear Region! For the first time since last Tuesday the high cracked the 60 degree mark at ILM thanks to the return of sunshine. Tonight will clear and chilly with lows mainly in the upper 30s. Expect another cool and sunny day Thursday.

A warming trend will carry highs to near 70 on Friday under partly sunny skies. A speedy, breezy cold front will line up the next best shower chance Saturday afternoon or night while another front could potentially do the same thing on or just before Thanksgiving. As of now, your holiday outlook contains partly cloudy skies, a 20% rain chance, and 60s for highs.

November, the final official month of Atlantic Hurricane Season, often passes by with no tropical storm development. But, here in the active 2019 season, the S-storm, Sebastian, formed Tuesday. Through Wednesday and Thursday, Tropical Storm Sebastian will struggle to maintain organization in the open Atlantic waters northeast of the Virgin Islands; neither it, nor much of its swell, are likely to ever reach North America.
