WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - One more foggy start to an unseasonably warm day here in eastern North Carolina, but as Jim Morrison says, "this is the end."
Come Thursday we will be joining the ranks of the rest of the United States with cool temperatures bottoming near, or below, freezing during the morning hours Friday and Saturday.
Wednesday's fog, while persistent, should burn off by mid morning and leave us with mostly cloudy skies and warm weather.
An upper level low on the tail end of this slow moving front will push toward eastern NC throughout the day on Thursday bringing rain chances for most of the state with, believe it or not, the chance for snow in northern North Carolina.
While rain may pose travel issues early Friday morning it should clear in time for a decent Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday weekend. But temperature-wise the MLK weekend will look much more like late January as highs will push into the mid 50s with lows near freezing.
Clearer skies are expected as a dome of high pressure inches toward us on Sunday through Tuesday.
