Your First Alert Forecast from Wed. morning, Apr. 14, 2021

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Wednesday to you 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 and pass by Thursday.

Ahead of the front, Wednesday will have sunny to variably cloudy skies, balmy south breezes which may occasionally gust over 20 mph, and temperatures in the upper 70s and lower 80s for highs. Odds for a late-day shower or thundershower will grow to a slim 10%.

As the front passes, breezes will shift to west and north by Thursday morning and afternoon, respectively. Variably or mostly cloudy skies will deliver 40% odds for a beneficial shower or thundershower Wednesday night and a similar chance for leftover rain Thursday.
