WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Long-range computer forecast models suggest a breezy, warm, and wet front may scoot through the Cape Fear Region early next week. Meanwhile, for the rest of this week into the weekend, a broad high pressure cell will continue to promote dry weather and nurture a subtle warming trend.

THURSDAY EVENING FORECAST DETAILS:  Northerly-based breezes will operate at mostly mellow 5 to 10 mph speeds, Clear skies will allow temperatures to drop to the mid and low 50s overnight.

EXTENDED FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS: Expect mostly 50s for the late-week mornings. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday look to feature 70s and lower 80s with low rain chances. Balmy breezes will fuel a medium chance for gusty showers early next week. A shot of cooler, drier weather appears probable midweek. 

TROPICS: October is statistically the third most active month of Atlantic Hurricane Season but, thankfully, new tropical storm development is unlikely in the Atlantic Basin Thursday or Friday. Should another tropical storm form at some point, it'd get the name "Philippe".
