First Alert Forecast: windy Friday to lead to frigid Christmas weekend
Your First Alert Weather Team is continuing the First Alert Action Day program into Friday, December 23.
WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - After heavy showers and storms and minor coastal flooding Thursday, and ahead of a dry and very cold Christmas weekend, your First Alert Weather Team is continuing its First Alert Action Day program into Friday, December 23.
Timing & Impacts: Winds will shift to drier, colder westerlies Friday, and they will become very aggressive with 40+ mph gusts and possibly some sporadic power outages. After peaking in the 50s to locally around 60 early in the day, temperatures will nosedive to within a few degrees of 30 Friday evening and within a few degrees of 20 by Saturday morning. In the same time, dangerously cold wind chills may ping as low as the 0s and 10s.
Our Promise & Your Action: Your First Alert Weather Team will update you on the dynamic weather on television, online, on the WECT Weather App, and on social media. Secure loose patio items and keep yard inflatables down through Friday. By Friday night, make sure to have your “four Ps” braced for cold: bundle up and care for PEOPLE, house or provide extra bedding for PETS, cover or stow sensitive PLANTS, and winterize PIPES.
