WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Thursday to you and thanks for checking into your First Alert Forecast for the Cape Fear Region! The midwinter sun will begin to work to slowly moderate the chilly temperatures. Expect highs to grow to the middle 50s Thursday to the lower and middle 60s Friday.

Rain chances will hover near 0% Thursday. 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.

As we head into next week look for a trend of seasonable highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s. Look fr plenty of sunshine and very little chance of any rain.
