WEATHER: Give thanks, for the forecast

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – As the low pressure center that brought the rain pulls away from the coast we still hold on to the lower level moisture across eastern North Carolina in spite of building high pressure.  A temperature inversion helps to ‘lock in' the cloud cover so in spite of clear and sunny skies as close as the Raleigh area, we here in southeastern North Carolina will have one more day of cloud cover.  Not to worry though, as we go into Wednesday the advancing high pressure center will scour out that inversion, freeing the skies, bringing sunny and crisp conditions to our area just in time for Thanksgiving weekend.

Turkey Day will see sunny skies and temperatures around 60 degrees.  Black Friday will be a touch warmer as the backside of the high moves overhead and temperatures move into the mid to upper 60s. A dry cold front from Friday into Saturday will drive temperatures back in to the 50s for the highs with lows in the 30s.
