Your First Alert Forecast for Tuesday evening Mar. 17, 2020

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Tuesday evening to you and Happy St. Patrick’s Day! For tonight we’ll see mostly cloudy skies and some patchy fog. A stray shower is possible with lows in middle 50s. Partly sunny skies are on tap Wednesday with highs near 70.

Temperatures will continue to soar through the week climbing 10-15 degrees above the average highs and lows. Also, expect a toasty first full day of spring Friday with mild high temperatures of 70-78 for most barrier island communities and even warmer 78-86 readings on the mainland. A strong cold front will chill these numbers out by Sunday and also bring a better dose of showers Saturday.

An unsettled pattern will also carry into next week as you can see in your seven-day forecast for Wilmington right here. And remember: a ten-day forecast is just a tap away on your WECT Weather App!
