WEATHER: Rain expected to change over to snow late Saturday night

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Clouds will continue to increase throughout the morning hours. Some moisture, already streaming in from the southwest, will arrive by early afternoon. Temperatures are only expected to climb near 50 degrees today.

Rain will linger into the nighttime hours before mixing with snow late tonight. I don't expect a full changeover to all snow until about midnight. Snow will last until about 3am depending upon conditions; however, the system will move offshore early Sunday, making way for a clear and breezy day.

Temperatures are expected to fall into the upper 20s by Sunday morning and only climb into the low 40s by Sunday afternoon. There could be some icy spots on the roadways Sunday morning due to subfreezing temperatures. Despite the cold, skies will remain mostly sunny throughout the day.
