First Alert Weather: Chilly tonight, much warmer weather ahead

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Shower chances have ended and skies will become mostly clear tonight with chilly temperatures overnight.  It won't stay cold long!  A big warm up is on tap through the rest of the week. 

MONDAY NIGHT:   Skies should partially clear late Monday and any showers will quickly come to an end.  Patchy fog could develop late tonight and it will be chilly.  Lows tonight will be in the upper 30's.  

TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY: Milder weather returns.  Tuesday will be mostly to partly sunny with highs in the mid 60's.  Clouds will increase Tuesday night with lows in the upper 40's.  Scattered showers are possible Wednesday morning as a system crosses the area.  Skies should clear some late in the day with a warm front surging through the area.  Highs will be near 70. 

THURSDAY AND FRIDAY: A big warm up on tap as a deep jet stream trough sets up over the western and central U.S.  Arctic air will blast the western two thirds of the country.  In response a southeast U.S. ridge builds in that will bring us unseasonably warm weather.  Look for mostly to partly sunny skies with afternoon highs well into the 70's (possibly near 80 Friday).  Lows will be near 60. 

THE WEEKEND: It looks like a strong cool font will clear the coast and stall just offshore.  Highs will drop from the upper 60's Saturday to the upper 50's Sunday.  Scattered to numerous showers are likely both days thanks to some overrunning moisture.  Shower chances should trend down from Sunday night into Monday. 

First Alert Meteorologists Gannon Medwick, Colin Hackman, Eric Davis, and Iisha Scott will keep you updated.
