WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good to see you late on this Tuesday! Your First Alert Forecast for this evening and overnight features increasing clouds, a small chance for a shower, light southeast breezes, and overnight low temperatures mainly in the upper 50s or lower 60s.

A sharp cold front will approach the Cape Fear Region Wednesday with variably or mostly cloudy skies, scattered showers, and perhaps an isolated storm. Temperatures will spike to their warmest levels of the week: 70s to around 80.

Behind the front, expect clearing and drier skies but sharply colder conditions between Thursday and Saturday. With near-record low temperatures in the lower and middle 30s, Friday and Saturday mornings ought to sting most! Frost is possible Friday morning if and where breezes die. Frost is probable Saturday morning amid universally calmer winds. Bottom line: if your interests include tender spring plants, be alert for potential frost / freeze bulletins late this week and ready to take steps to help them.

Your First Alert Forecast goes on with gorgeous holiday weather, like sunny 50s and 60s for the final afternoon of Passover Saturday. And, for Easter Sunday: clear, crisp 40s for 6:54 a.m. sunrise services and a bright, beautiful 60s and 70s afternoon.
