First Alert Forecast: wintry storm to target Carolinas Friday

Your First Alert Forecast from Wed. morning, Jan. 6, 2021

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Hello! A wintry storm system remains likely to impact the Carolinas Friday. While your First Alert Forecast continues to exclusively feature chilly raindrops here in the Cape Fear Region, a deeper slice of cold air will likely switch some spots to the north and west to snowflakes. Every degree of latitude and hundred feet of elevation could make a difference, and your First Alert Weather Team will keep you updated.

In the meantime, for this Wednesday and Thursday: please enjoy some well-deserved hours of sun! Temperatures will grow from the classically frosty 30s each morning to the seasonably chilly lower to middle 50s each afternoon.

One of the highlights of your longer ranger First Alert Forecast is a dry weekend. You can catch it in your seven-day planner for Wilmington here, or in a ten-day forecast for any town you choose on your WECT Weather App!
