First Alert Forecast: remnants of Nicole, drier weather with a big temp drop ahead
WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Your First Alert Weather Team is wrapping up its First Alert Action Day program this Veterans Day Friday, November 11 as weather settles down - and gradually chills down - over the weekend. The risk of a leftover shower or storm will stay in place through early Saturday morning as remnants of Nicole trek northeast through the weekend.
Impacts are winding down into the weekend; Saturday’s forecast will look similar to today’s in regards to temperatures: upper 70s are likely with partly cloudy skies and slim shower chances. You will feel a big difference into Sunday morning starting off in the chilly 50s and only making it into the the lower 60s as a cold front passes through the region and winds shift to bring in much cooler air from the north. Atmospheric conditions will provide a good chance for frost Sunday night with middle 30s expected away from the immediate coastline.
After some much-needed rainfall from Nicole Thursday and Friday - netting in most places around an inch or so - across the Cape Fear Region, much drier conditions will take hold of the forecast through early next week. Our next set of moderate rain chances arrives late next Tuesday with low pressure moving across the southeast.
