WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Cool and refreshing northerly and easterly breezes flowed across the Cape Fear Region ton Thursday. High temperatures topped out in the lower and middle 70s - a noticeable drop-off after a couple of summery days around 90! For tonight clouds increase as a developing low moves in the general direction of the Carolinas. After midnight scattered showers and thunderstorms become possible with lows in the 50s.

An upper-level cold pocket is likely to dig through the skies over the Cape Fear Region through Friday, and your First Alert Forecast responds with healthier rain odds. Expect variable clouds to deliver scattered showers, and, given the anomalous chill aloft, perhaps a rogue small hail-producing storm. All the while, temperatures are likely to remain in the cool 60s and 70s for most of your Friday.

Your First Alert Forecast extends into Mother’s Day weekend with a chilly start (temperatures as low as the 40s Saturday morning), a warm finish (temperatures as high as the 80s Sunday afternoon), and dry skies all around. New shower and thunderstorm opportunities return to the forecast for the new work week.
