WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Your First Alert Forecast begins with a chilly start in the 40s and 50s for the new work and school week with cool & crisp middle and upper 60s and lower 70s by the end of the day. Expect variably cloudy skies, but it’s unlikely you’ll need an umbrella through the early week.

Winds will be blustery in the early going with a low pressure system offshore. It will churn up the waters of the coast, so expect risks for rip currents to remain elevated through the weekend.

Changes are in store as highs regain their footing through the 70s Tuesday and climb to near 80 Friday. Humidity and thunderstorm chances will also climb by then, marking a return to an unsettled summery feel.
