First Alert Weather: October to finish on a warm note

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A high pressure system will bring dry or mostly dry weather for October's final days. A passing cold front will bring a spike in rain chances for Friday into part of Saturday and then a shot of cooler and drier air starting Sunday.

MONDAY NIGHT: Expect variable clouds and a slight chance of a sprinkle or shower. Patches of fog may even form late as temperatures cool to late-night lows mainly in the low and middle 50s. 

TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY: Expect partly to, at times, mostly sunny skies, and daily high temperatures well into the 70s for most locations. Rain chances will hover near 0% for the duration.  

THURSDAY: Expect variable clouds and just an outside chance of a shower. Temperatures will warm to highs mainly in the upper 70s - a toasty forecast for trick-or-treat routes and other afternoon festivals. 

FRIDAY AND NEXT WEEKEND: Said cold front will bring a chance of showers and perhaps even a thunderstorm late Friday into early Saturday. Rain chances will trend back to near 0% for Sunday. Daily highs: mainly 70s for Fri and Sat but 60s are more likely for Sunday. 

TROPICAL OUTLOOK: New tropical storm development is not expected in the Atlantic, Caribbean Sea or the Gulf of Mexico through the middle of the week.
