First Alert Weather: February to end - fittingly - with chilly weather

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Perhaps fittingly for a month that will be remembered for a significant winter storm, February's final days will feature at-or-below-average temperatures. A storm system will bring our next rain chance on Saturday, March 1.

LATE WEDNESDAY NIGHT: With some drier air filtering in, expect a gradual decrease in clouds and rain chances (snowflakes or sleet pellets mixed?). Patchy fog and / or frost may form late at night with lows mainly in the upper 20s inland and lower 30s near the coast.

THURSDAY: Patches of fog, low clouds, and / or frost may be an issue early. Otherwise, expect brighter skies, light north or west breezes, and afternoon highs mainly in the mid to upper 50s (milder than Wednesday, but still a little lower than the late-February average of lower 60s). 

FRIDAY: Friday will begin mostly clear and frosty-cold with sunrise temperatures mainly in the middle and upper 20s. North or northeast breezes of 10 to 15mph will, despite sunny or partly sunny skies, hold temperatures to chilly afternoon highs (mainly upper 40s and lower 50s). 

EXTENDED FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS: Scattered showers are possible Saturday but a total front-to-back rain-out is unlikely. Saturday highs: 50s. Sunday looks pleasant with partly sunny skies and highs in the 60s to near 70 and temperatures may grow a bit more early next week.
