First Alert Forecast: showers return Monday, cooler by Tuesday

Your First Alert Forecast for Sunday evening Feb. 28, 2021

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Hello, and nice Sunday evening to you! What a way to wrap up February, as we made another run at at record high. Yesterday, Wilmington tied the record high of 82 set back in 1962. This afternoon Wilmington saw a high of 79, which is well shy of the record of 85 also set in 1962. Inland portions of southeast North Carolina did manage to rise into the 80s. Once again most beaches in Brunswick County struggled to reach 70. This evening and overnight we’ll see partly cloudy skies with areas of fog developing. Lows will only drop into the lower 60s but low visibility could be an issue for your morning commute in spots. Drive carefully, use low beam headlights, and don’t follow the car in front of you too closely.

Monday will be mild as March begins highs will once again soar into the 70s. Expect a round of showers from mid morning into the afternoon. The rest of the week will generally be cooler and drier. Catch some of these items with your seven-day forecast for Wilmington right here. Or, extend your outlook deeper into March for any location you choose with your WECT Weather App. And have a happy and safe weekend!
