WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Your First Alert Forecast continues with increasing rain odds as a front approaches the Cape Fear Region: a modest 10-20% Thursday night, transitions to a healthier 50% later Friday into Friday night.

Rich moisture along the front might argue for higher chances, but droughts have a way of breaking up rain systems, so conservatism seems like the prudent play. Should storms fire and enter the mix, they would have the means to become locally strong and gusty - especially by Friday afternoon and evening. So, please keep your WECT Weather App handy for the unlikely event an urgent bulletin needs to find you.
