WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) – Your First Alert Forecast features the Cape Fear Region’s coldest Christmas since 2004! Unfortunately, its agent – a sharp cold front – produced strong to severe Christmas Eve storms. Get your fireplace ready and stay alert with your WECT Weather App…
Christmas Day: Behind the front, temperatures will struggle through the 30s to, at most, 40s despite periods of sunshine. Wintry west and northwest winds could occasionally gust over 20 mph and certainly add an extra bite with the wind chill: expect those values to hover in the 20s most of the time.
The rest of Christmas weekend: Dryness will rule for most if not all of Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday. Brace for “people, pets, plants, and pipes” type cold with low temperatures deep down into the 20s for one or both nights and expect only modest gains in daytime readings: 40s to, at most, 50s.
