First Alert Forecast: freezing start but mild end to Easter weekend
WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Great to see you on this Saturday! You’re going to want to grab your coat this morning as a wintry and strong high pressure keeps its hold on the Carolinas. The National Weather Service has hoisted a Freeze Warning until 10 a.m. unless canceled early. We managed to tie the record low of 31 set back in 1992, but despite the wintry start, a rapid warm up will shoot temperatures to the upper 50s and lower 60s. That may sound cold, but it’s an improvement from Friday.
A trip back to the refrigerator, so-to-speak awaits you Saturday night and Sunday morning, meaning you’ll need the coat again for Easter sunrise services. However, Easter Sunday is also the beginning of a warm and sunny trend into the coming work week. Catch details on these times and more in your seven-day forecast for Wilmington here.
