WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Wednesday evening to you! Your First Alert Forecast offers a transition from a warm, humid 80 degree plus day to a milder, more comfortable Thursday with temperatures in the 70s.

While strong and severe showers and storms have threatened the region the past couple of days, the NWS’ Storm Prediction Center has low confidence that any storms that develop will like not meet the criteria needed to issue a watch or a warning in the Cape Fear Region.

Overnight temperatures will trend a little cooler with lows bottoming out in the lower 60s.

A decent chance of showers and storms arrives on Friday as a low tracks near the area. This is welcome news as southeast North Carolina’s rainfall deficit continues to climb.
