By Robb Ellis - bio |email

 Wilmington, NC (WECT)- Milder air is going to be in place as rain heads into the southeastern North Carolina. 

A warm front should sweep by Saturday night along with the rain showers.  This low pressure system moving in from the Gulf should bring prolonged rain showers through Sunday.  

Temperatures will be in the 50s and 60s for the majority of the weekend.  A cold front will move through the area on Sunday gradually moving the rain showers out only leaving some lingering clouds.  High temperatures near 60 and clearing skies are expected to start the new week.
