WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Hello! Your First Alert Forecast features a big swing from frosty 30s this morning to toasty middle and upper 70s Wednesday and Thursday, while overnight lows settle in the much warmer 40s and 50s. Skies will be clear and mainly cloud free with southerly-based breezes.

By late-week a strong but moisture-starved cold front will put a stop to the 70s and knock highs back to the cool 60s and 50s for the weekend. Rain chances will briefly tick up late Thursday and Thursday night, but not enough to alleviate the abnormally dry or moderate drought designations. Another chance of showers arrives early next week.

Catch these temperature and rain chance changes in your seven-day forecast right here:

Remember: you can customize your location and extend your outlook beyond Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday with a ten-day forecast on your WECT Weather App and plan ahead for any holiday travel or gatherings.

Don’t forget tomorrow is Weather Alert Wednesday. The First Alert Weather Team will be at the Lowe’s at Monkey Junction from Noon to 6 p.m. We will be there to help you and your family prepare for severe weather and to answer your weather questions. We hope to see you!

Finally, as we approach the final days of the Atlantic hurricane season, tropical storm formation is unlikely in the Atlantic Basin.
