WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Happy Friday evening to you! Frosty 20s and 30s first thing this morning yielded to the National Weather Service officially declaring the growing season over for the Cape Fear Region. Under abundant sunshine, highs once stayed in the 50s for the second day in a row.

Look for a frosty start on your Saturday morning before plentiful afternoon sunshine pushes highs close to 60 later in the day. A system will pass to our south on Sunday so we will see increasing clouds and a slim shower chance. Variably to mostly cloudy skies will hold highs in the middle 50. Another widespread freeze is likely Monday morning. Temperatures will begin to moderate by Tuesday as clouds increase.

Leading up to Thanksgiving Day, look for a shift to a milder and possibly wetter weather pattern. Catch more chill in your seven-day forecast:
