WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good to see this late this Friday! Your First Alert Forecast turns briefly unsettled this weekend with the approach and passage of a cold front Saturday. Watch for isolated showers and storms, especially inland and between 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. While the storms themselves will carry a marginal risk for damaging gusts, you’ll want to note that Saturday will be blustery in any case with southwest winds possibly gusting near or over 40 mph at times.

Skies will clear Saturday night and winds will gradually settle through Sunday afternoon, with much cooler 60s to, at best, near 70-degree temperatures. Monday should be mostly sunny and gorgeous with highs in the 70s. For the rest of next week we’ll variable clouds and warm highs in excess of 80 away from the coast. Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will return to the forecast.
