WEATHER: Cool and breezy Saturday; warmer temps. by Sunday

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Temperatures will remain below average today, but a warming trend is on the horizon.

Temperatures will climb into the mid 50s Sunday. With high pressure building in, sunny skies are expected throughout the day. In addition, winds will remain out of the north ranging from 10-15 mph.

Clear skies will stay with us through the overnight hours, which will allow temperatures to fall pretty quickly tonight. Expect temperatures to plunge into the upper 20s inland and near 30 in Wilmington. Locations closer to the coast will only reach the low 30s.

As high pressure moves offshore Sunday, winds will shift out of the south, which will allow temperatures to climb into the upper 50s. Sunday will start out mainly sunny, but clouds will increase by Sunday evening.

As of now, a cold front is expected to move through the area early Monday. The front will then stall near southeastern North Carolina creating some pretty unsettled weather through Wednesday.
