WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

A cool and crisp high pressure system will govern the weather in the Cape Fear Region for the rest of Thanksgiving weekend. Enjoy near or slightly below-average temperatures and low rain chances. A warming trend begins in the new work week. 

TONIGHT: Look for mostly clear skies and chilly conditions with lows in the 30s. Patchy frost is a good bet away from the coast. 

WEEKEND AND MONDAY: Expect a bright weekend and start to the work week with highs mainly in the lower and middle 60s, respectively. Monday could start frosty.

TUESDAY AND BEYOND: Ridging in the jet stream will lead to milder weather through the period. Expect highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Lows will be in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Skies will be mainly sunny Tuesday but look for increasing clouds and rain chances each day through Friday.

TROPICAL UPDATE: New tropical storm formation is not likely in the Atlantic Basin this weekend. The official end of the Atlantic Hurricane Season, November 30, is now less than a week away!
