WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Your First Alert Forecast features sun and clouds this evening with breezy conditions at times; your evening plans will feature temperatures in the middle 70s. The chance of a pop-up shower or storm remains minimal. Overnight lows will dip into the upper 50s and lower 60s. Look for lots of sunshine for the rest of the work week as highs surge deeper into the 80s each day.

So far in 2021, Wilmington has hit the 90s only once: the high temperature was 91 on May 4. Make sure your air conditioning unit is ready: a strong high pressure ridge will bring more chances to eclipse that summery benchmark this coming weekend and into next week.
