WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Meteorological winter (Dec 1 - Feb 28) will end on a chilly note across southeastern North Carolina but a warmer air mass will make gradual inroads during the first weekend of March.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Expect clear or mostly clear skies. North breezes of 5 to 15mph may discourage the formation of frost in some areas, but with lows likely to be in the upper 20s and lower 30s, frost may be able to form in some sheltered areas.
FRIDAY MORNING: Expect mostly clear skies. Temperatures will grow from the upper 20s and lower 30s around daybreak to the upper 30s and lower 40s late in the morning. North and northeast winds of 10 to 15mph will push wind chills into the 20s at times.
FRIDAY AFTERNOON: Expect partly cloudy skies. Temperatures will crest mainly in the upper 40s to around 50 but continued north and northeast winds of 10 to 15mph will push wind chills into the 30s at times.
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.
