WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Tuesday evening to you! As the week progresses, sunshine will continue to grace the Cape Fear Region. Highs on Wednesday and Thursday will soar to near 80 in many spots as milder air moves back into the area ahead of a late week cold front.

You can watch the Hunter’s Moon rise in the eastern sky at 6:21 p.m. this evening and 6:48 p.m. Wednesday. Under moonlight skies, temperatures will fall through the 70s and 60s for the next couple of evenings. By daybreak, 50s ought to be the most common range. A few inland locations could see 40s.

A cold front authors much of your First Alert extended forecast. First, the front’s approach will spark a 30% chance for a shower or thundershower Friday. Behind the front, weekend rain chances will quickly drop back to zero and temperatures will fall about three or four degrees.

New tropical storm formation is not likely in the Atlantic Basin - including the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea - this week.
