WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

The wet and wintry storm that blitzed the Cape Fear Region late Wednesday has exited. A high pressure system will bring dry weather and a warming trend between Thursday and the weekend. Your forecast for...

THURSDAY: Watch for a stray leftover ice patch or two with refreezing possible overnight. but with northwest winds of 10 to 20 mph, wind chills will be in the 10s and 20s with over night lows in the middle 20s.

FRIDAY: Sun will help temperatures make nice gains from the 20s at daybreak to the 50s for the afternoon. With light west winds of mainly 5 to 10 mph, wind chills aren't likely to be as much of a factor as Thursday.

THE LONGER RANGE: A quick shower chance is possible early next week, but the weekend ought to remain dry with sunny or partly sunny skies, mild to warm 50s and 60s for daytime highs, and nights in the 30s and 40s.

QUICK LOOK BACK ON THE WINTRY SYSTEM: As expected, central North Carolina "won the event" with 4 to 12 inches of snow! Locally, snow ranged from a few flurries to a dusting for places like Whiteville, Elizabethtown, and Burgaw.
