WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Happy Friday evening! After a soggy Tuesday-to-Thursday stretch (Wilmington logged 1.95 inches of rain!) a dry high pressure cell remains on-track to build into the Cape Fear Region tonight. Look for clearing skies and continued breezy condition tonight with lows in the upper 30s.
Your longer-range forecast features plentiful sun for “spring forward” weekend (rain-clouds will not rebuild until after Monday) but continued chillier-than-average temperatures. Lots of Saturday night considerations for you: set clocks ahead one hour, check smoke and carbon monoxide detector batteries, and cover sensitive plants for possible frost. Mild temperatures and eventually some showers return into the new work week. Catch your seven-day forecast for Wilmington here.
