First Alert Forecast: Freeze Warning tonight, milder weather snaps back soon

Your First Alert forecast for Wednesday evening Nov. 18, 2020

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Great to see you this Wednesday evening! Wilmington saw its coldest day since March 20, as the high at ILM topped out at 53 this afternoon. A true taste of normal January weather in southeast North Carolina.

Please plan some extra care for your cold-sensitive pets and plants for Wednesday night as clear skies and slackening winds will favor a sharp temperature drop. By Thursday morning, most spots will have readings in the frosty lower and middle 30s and inland locales might even dip below freezing for a time.

Your extended forecast is milder with recovering rivers here at home and a respite in storminess in the tropics. Catch details in your First Alert seven-day planner for Wilmington right here.
