First Alert Forecast: spring cold front brings cooler temperatures, modest rain chances
WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good to see you on this Wednesday evening and thanks for checking in! Your First Alert Forecast accounts for the approach and passage of a decently strong spring cold front. The front will approach Wednesday evening and pass by Thursday. A second front will sweep by late Thursday afternoon and end any chances of rain.
Ahead of the first front, expect variably cloudy skies, balmy south breezes which may occasionally gust over 20 mph, and temperatures falling to only the middle and lower 60s. Odds for a spotty shower or thundershower will grow from a slim 10% to a modest 40% by daybreak.
As the first front passes, breezes will shift to west and north by Thursday morning and afternoon, respectively. Highs will top out in the cooler middle 70s.
