WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Great to see you early on this Friday. A low pressure system in the upper atmosphere will support higher rain odds before the end of the week. Your First Alert Forecast brings chances of showers and storms from 70% Friday to a coin-flip’s 50% through Sunday. Thanks for staying alert! Showers and clouds will keep temperatures capped in the lower and middle 80s Friday, but sun and southwesterly winds will kick temperatures close to 90 through early next week.

New tropical storm formation is possible in the Atlantic Basin. A disturbance enhancing showers over Central America carries modest development chance as it wobbles into the southwestern Gulf of Mexico this weekend, but its window is limited before it makes landfall. “No definable Carolina threats” continues to be a blessing to be able to say!
