WEATHER: Mild January weather continues

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Drier air from the north and a brief wind shift will drop Thursday's temperatures a few degrees off of Wednesday's pace. However it still be mild!  Thursday morning will start with some patchy fog and temperatures hovering near 50 degrees.  By afternoon we'll see a mix of sun and clouds with highs in the mid to upper 60's.  Moisture will stream northward this evening so clouds will increase.  Overnight it will be mostly cloudy with a few spot showers.  Lows will be in the upper 40's and low 50's.   

Friday will be mostly cloudy and mild with highs in the upper 60's.  Isolated light showers are likely.  Rainfall totals will average around a tenth of an inch.

Saturday and Sunday will be perfect for outdoor activities.  Get your tee times now!  Both days will feature mostly sunny skies and highs in the low to mid 70's.  Overnight lows will only drop into the mid 50's.
