First Alert Forecast: winter waiting in the wings

Your First Alert Forecast from Wed. morning, Jan. 15, 2020

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Happy Wednesday! Spring has been winning the seasonal battle over the past couple of days but winter is ready to make its presence known . A cold front will finally move into the area which will bring a dose of wintry air by Friday and again early next week. Check out these main points below:

- Afternoon highs will stay well above normal today climbing into the upper 60s and lower 70s. Temperatures are still running well above normal... for now.

- Dense fog, especially areas along the coastline, will be a travel hazard limiting visibility mainly in the morning but could also linger into the afternoon.

- A front still stalled will keep the chance for showers and a gusty storm alive Wednesday. Some showers may produce heavy rain at times since the atmosphere is already muggy.
