WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Cool and refreshing northerly and easterly breezes will flow across the Cape Fear Region Thursday. Expect high temperatures mainly in the middle 70s - a noticeable drop-off after a couple of summery days around 90! Fair skies and paltry rain chances round-out your First Alert Forecast for Thursday. Enjoy the day!

An upper-level cold pocket is likely to dig through the skies over the Cape Fear Region Thursday night and Friday, and your First Alert Forecast responds with healthier rain odds. Expect variable clouds to deliver spotty 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.

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.
