First Alert Forecast: warm now, stormy soon

Your First Alert Forecast from Tue. morning, Feb. 4, 2020

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Tuesday to you and thanks for checking in! Your First Alert Weather Team is tracking a potent storm system that will gradually wiggle its way into the Cape Fear Region toward the end of the work week.

Ahead of this system, enjoy fair skies, low rain chances, fresh southwest breezes, and afternoon temperatures mainly in the lower to middle 70s Tuesday. A few banks of chillier fog with 60s may develop along area beaches, though.

By Thursday, belts of strong atmospheric winds will team with marginal instability to develop numerous gusty showers and potentially a few stronger thunderstorm cells. Please plan to be weather-aware and stay tuned as details emerge.
