First Alert Forecast: windy, rainy, stormy Friday night likely

Your First Alert Forecast from Fri. Afternoon, Dec. 4, 2020

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good to see you! A strong front is the lead actor in the first part of your First Alert Forecast. As the front approaches the Cape Fear Region Friday, mellow and mild southerly breezes will help temperatures swell to the upper 60s and lower 70s despite gathering and thickening clouds and even a passing shower or two.

This dynamic front will blow through Friday night. Scattered, blustery showers are likely and isolated severe storms are possible. Even independent of storm cells, southerly and westerly winds could ping 40+ mph in gusts. Please secure loose items like holiday decorations and stay alert for rapidly changing conditions with your WECT Weather App!

In the wake of the front, your longer-range First Alert Forecast features mostly dry weekend weather and redeveloping rain chances next week. You will notice these sentiments, and a lot of chilly weather too, in your seven-day forecast for Wilmington right here ...or in a ten-day forecast for any location you choose with your WECT Weather App.
