WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Your First Alert Forecast accounts for a strong cold front that will slice across the Cape Fear Region over the holiday weekend. A cooling temperature trend is a certainty; needed rain is not a certainty, but a possibility.

It’s worth noting that the risk for rip currents remains elevated and a marginal threat for severe weather exists Saturday, so keep an ear out for alerts on your WECT Weather app. Exercise caution along the beach as the risk for rip currents remains elevated.
