WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good to see you! Your First Alert Forecast features chances for more drought-denting rain & storms across the Cape Fear Region through the weekend. A stalled cold front will keep daily and nightly chances for rain in the 50-60% range with embedded thunderstorms and torrential downpours within these clusters. An umbrella would be of benefit, but don’t expect an all-day rain. Unfortunately we had to cancel this evening’s Sounds of Summer concert at Wrightsville Beach with the high shower and thunderstorm threat.

Seasonably cool highs in the 80s and overnight lows in the lower 70s will take us through early next week. Hotter weather will return as we head into the new work week. Catch these trend in your planning forecast here: http://webpubcontent.gray.tv/wect/MAXSevendayWECT.jpg.

You can custom-tailor your location and extend your outlook to ten days on your WECT Weather App.

Tropical storm formation is unlikely anywhere in the Atlantic basin through early next week. Take this quiet time to be prepared for the next storm with the help of the WECT First Alert Hurricane Center: wect.com/hurricane.
