First Alert Forecast: wintry

Your First Alert Forecast from Tue. morning, Jan. 21, 2020

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Tuesday to you and thanks for checking into your First Alert Forecast! To begin this forecast period, the Cape Fear Region will squeeze in between a cold northern high pressure cell and a developing ocean low pressure system. This spells wintry conditions for Tuesday, like...

- biting northerly winds of 10 to 20 mph.

- temperatures cresting only mainly in the lower and middle 40s.

- wind chill values fighting their way through the 10s, 20s, and 30s.

- sunny to partly cloudy skies and just an outside chance for a sprinkle or flurry late.

The deepest moisture for most significant precipitation will stay offshore this Tuesday, but a late-week system will look to boost odds for rain showers to 40% Friday, 60% Friday night, and 20% Saturday.
