Your First Alert Forecast from Sun. morning, February 28, 2021

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Hello, and Happy Sunday to you! What a way to wrap up February, as we make another run at at record high. Yesterday, WIlmington tied the record high of 82 set back in 1962 and today, 85 will be the number to aim for, which was also set in 1962. It will be a close call as temperatures swell to the upper 70s and lower 80s. Additional clouds will work to screen the warming sun, and 50-degree water temperatures and the onshore breeze flow will limit temperature growth near the coast to the upper 60s to lower 70s.

Unsettled weather will be the story as March begins, along with roller coaster temperatures for the rest of the week. Catch some of these items with your seven-day forecast for Wilmington right here.
