First Alert Forecast: few showers then cool and dry start to the week

Your First Alert Forecast from Sun. morning, Jan. 19, 2020

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Sunday to you! I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far!

A mild start with a cold finish is the theme of the day as a few showers file through ahead of a cold front. Driven by Arctic high pressure, expect to see some big changes in temperatures in the coming days. Gusty winds associated with the front will add a chill to the wind, so be prepared to bundle up and hold on to your hats! This front will drop temperatures to near 30 with wind chill values in the lower 20 and upper 10s. For your Martin Luther King Jr. Day, temperatures struggle to get to the mid 40s in the afternoon.

We’ll see cool and dry weather for much of the week ahead, which you can check out below on your 7 day planning forecast for the Wilmington area!
