WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - The barometer is falling and rain chances are rising. Your First Alert Forecast features an excellent chance of gusty showers Thursday evening into Thursday night as a sharp front slices toward the Cape Fear Region. Consider stowing potted mums and unplugging Halloween inflatables. Also, please stay alert with your WECT Weather App in the evening: a stray severe thunderstorm with damaging straight-line winds or a spin-up tornado could form if and only if enough surface instability can punch in from the ocean. Coastal areas have the highest risk of a severe thunderstorm. Look for breezy condition and some leftover isolated showers on your Friday with highs in the lower and middle 70s.

Last note: the Carolinas face no tropical storm threats through the period. The Atlantic Basin has been free of named storms for over three weeks!
