Today's Forecast Image

An extraordinarily strong ridge of high pressure will continue promote low rain chances and exceptionally warm temperatures across the Cape Fear Region from Thursday through the weekend. A cold front will introduce changes by early next week.

THURSDAY... Skies: foggy or partly sunny. Shower chances: 10 to 20%. Breezes: light and from the south. Forecast highs: near 80 mainland, mid 70s beaches. Average high for Wilmington: 61. Record high for Wilmington: 78 set in 2003.

FRIDAY... Once again... Skies: foggy or partly sunny. Shower chances: 10 to 20%. Breezes: light and mainly from the south. Forecast highs: upper 70s mainland, lower 70s beaches. Average high for Wilmington: 61. Record high for Wilmington: 80 set in 1975.

WEEKEND... Skies: variably cloudy. Shower chances: 20% Saturday, 30 to 40% Sunday. Forecast highs: near 80 mainland, lower to mid 70s beaches. Average high by this point: 62. Record highs for both days are 81 set in 1982 and 1930.

LONGER-RANGE... Data suggests a cold front could generate scattered showers Sunday night into Monday and deliver a puff of slightly cooler air Monday into midweek. Even still, temperatures are not likely to fall below freezing before the end of the month!
