First Alert Forecast: increasing temperatures and rain chances

Your First Alert Forecast for Thursday evening Jan. 23, 2020

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Happy Thursday evening to you and thanks for checking into your First Alert forecast this week! As high pressure slips offshore it will wrap around warmer southeast winds which will aide to milder temperatures Friday.

As temperatures rise so do the rain chances. A speedy low pressure system will bring higher odds for showers of 30% Friday, 70% Friday night, and 10% Saturday. A rumble of thunder is possible with this system but severe storms seem unlikely. Flooding is highly unlikely as rain amounts should stay in the manageable three-quarters of an inch or less range.

A cold front will bring cooler and drier days over the weekend and into next week. Overall the weekend, including Get Fit with Six, will have a successful outcome with temperatures mainly in the 50s and 60s with a mix of sun and clouds. Next week, temperatures will generally be near normal with highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s.
