WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Great to see you on this Friday evening. Your First Alert Forecast opens with decreasing coverage of showers and thunderstorms as we progress through the evening. Most of southeastern North Carolina saw rainfall totals between a quarter to three quarters of an inch. It won’t wipe out the drought but it will begin to make a small dent.

Through the holiday weekend, Temperatures will swell daily to the middle and upper 80s with lower 90s likely as the calendar turns to June. Exercise caution in the lower and middle 70-degree water. Most days will boast a moderate risk of rip currents, with certain periods of the day, like low tides, being more pronounced. Rain and storm chance will be small into early next week.
