First Alert Forecast: cold rain to make quick exit

Your First Alert Forecast from early Wed., Mar. 3, 2021

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Wednesday to you! Your First Alert Forecast opens with a changing sky. Earlier showers delivered about two-tenths of an inch of rain to Wilmington; there was a little less to the north and several tenths more for some spots south of the city. Temperatures struggled through the 40s under the drab clouds and amid chilly northeast breezes, but a drying and brightening afternoon sky should help incorporate some 50s and maybe even isolated lower 60s. All of the Cape Fear Region will be able to see a nice sunset just after 6 p.m.

In your First Alert Forecast for the longer range... Thursday looks sunny and seasonable, Friday will be equally bright but cooler, and the weekend continues to trend chilly and mainly dry.
