 Wilmington, NC (WECT) -  Cold air moved in the area over the weekend that made being outdoors downright miserable. Temperatures are expected to gradually warm this week.

Temperatures over the weekend averaged 15 degrees below normal.  The arctic blast could be felt all the way in Southern Florida where it got cold enough to have reports of frozen green iguanas falling off of palm trees.  

Monday with temperatures climbing into high 40s this afternoon the warm up has barely begun.  High pressure is expected to settle over the Carolinas over the next few days moderating temperatures over the viewing area. 

High temperatures are expected to be in 60s by Friday. For the first time this year temperatures could be above average. Rain is expected to be in the forecast again this upcoming weekend.

    High pressure will slip offshore allowing a warm southerly flow and more humid air mass to build into the area. Also, a cold front will be approaching the Cape Fear Region by Tuesday bringing an abundance of moisture so expect isolated to scattered showers and storms to return.
