WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Nice to see you late this Sunday! A warming trend is expected in the coming days; temperatures are expected to crawl back into the lower 70s under partly cloudy skies on President’s Day amid mild southwesterly breezes.

By the middle of the week record challenging upper 70s and lower 80s are expected as a massive upper ridge builds over the southeast. In terms of rain, the best chances are in a stray shower or two due to the lack of organized systems in the forecast. Fortunately, recent rain events have put a big dent in the ongoing drought across the Cape Fear.
