WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Friday evening to you! Wilmington saw a record tying highs of 79 on Friday first set in 1998. Your First Alert Forecast features mainly sunny and, by December standards, a toasty weekend across the Cape Fear Region. Expect temperatures to swell to at least near if not well north of 70 each day, and records may be challenged again on Saturday. The record high for Wilmington for this December 4, for example, is 80, set in 1978.

Rain chances will remain paltry through the weekend: 0% Friday night, 0% Saturday, and 10% Sunday. And while these metrics may be great for attending holiday parties or hanging Christmas lights, they compound ongoing drought and brush fire danger concerns. For now, next week looks to offer slightly more generous rain chances, including 50% for Wednesday.
