WEATHER: A chilly start to the weekend!

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – It's a cold start to your Saturday morning. Temperatures were flirting with the freezing mark in Wilmington, but inland locations fell into the mid to upper 20s. Not only are we dealing with cold temperatures this morning, but overcast skies as well.

Clouds will decrease throughout the day; however, we are seeing some breaks in the clouds this morning.

Expect partly cloudy skies this afternoon with highs near 50. Lows will fall below freezing overnight, so expect a few slick spots on the roadways.

High pressure will build in tomorrow, so mostly sunny skies are expected with highs in the low 50s.

Temperatures will climb significantly by midweek as winds begin to shift out of the south.
