WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - A low pressure system high in the atmosphere will keep temperatures below 90 and share higher rain odds before the end of the week. Your First Alert Forecast brings chances of showers and storms from 30% overnight Thursday night to 70% Friday. Thanks for staying alert! The pattern is set to stay unsettled through the weekend and early next week.

New tropical storm formation remains unlikely anywhere in the Atlantic Basin through Friday. A disturbance enhancing showers over Central America carries a medium development chance as it wobbles into the southwestern Gulf of Mexico this weekend. “No definable Carolina threats” continues to be a blessing to be able to say!
