WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - After frosty 30s to start Tuesday across the Cape Fear Region, your First Alert Forecast features a milder temperature trend. Afternoon highs soared deep into the 60s. Lower 70s Wednesday are expected, and, perhaps apart from locations right on the water, 70s also appear probable for Thursday. Highs will dip back into the 50s this weekend.

A front will bring back chillier weather by Super Bowl Sunday but, before it does, it should help generate showers. Your First Alert Forecast aligns rain chances near 0% through Wednesday, 10 to 20% Thursday, 50 to 60% Friday into Saturday, and 10 to 20% Sunday. For now, the flooding and severe storm risk appears low with this front.
