WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) A dry, sunny, and unusually cool forecast for our Memorial Day weekend as a blast of cool Canadian air sets up shop for the weekend.
The first sign of change will be the breezy conditions as northwesterly winds pile in today. Wind speeds could bump up to around 25mph during the afternoon. Tonight the winds will settle some as cold air moves overhead sending temperatures in a free fall. Dawn temperatures should settle into the mid to upper 40s, well below the all time record of 50F set back in 1967.
The afternoons will be amazing. Dry conditions, high pressure, boat loads of sunshine and calmer winds. Look for temps in the mid 70s both Saturday and Sunday as we slowly warm next week.
