WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Nice to see you late this Sunday! Chilly 50s are expected to stick around through early this week, including the first official day of spring on Monday. The growing season and freezes are not a good combo, and your First Alert Forecast features another chill shot tonight and Monday night with a Freeze Warning in effect early Monday morning for most of southeast North Carolina. As of now, temperatures are expected to be at or right below freezing. A Freeze Watch is also in effect for late Monday evening through early Tuesday morning. Remember to give extra love to sensitive plants and outdoor pets!

Spring weather will assert itself later in the week as highs moderate back into the 60s Tuesday, 70s return for Wednesday and Thursday, and even some 80s likely on Friday.
