WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good to see you on this Saturday evening. After highs near or even above record levels on Friday and Saturday, an approaching cold front is poised to bring more normal December weather back to SE NC as we begin the new week. We’ll have two bites at the rain chance apple prior to Christmas Day.

Specifically your First Alert Forecast features scattered showers late tonight into Sunday. Expect a few tenths of an inch of rain with up to half inch possible in isolated locations. Following the front, expect seasonably cool conditions for the week leading up to Christmas. Tuesday and / or Wednesday carries the risk for additional rain, provided an offshore low pressure system deepens sufficiently and tracks close enough to the Carolina Coast.
