WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

A cold front will bring a spell of seasonably cool temperatures - but not until next week! In the meantime, a summery ridge of high pressure will deliver more unseasonably toasty temperatures through Sunday.

SATURDAY NIGHT: Expect partly cloudy skies, south breezes and patchy fog. Low temperatures will be mainly in the upper 50s and low 60s.

SUNDAY FORECAST DETAILS: Through the afternoon, enjoy partly sunny skies and south breezes which will help fuel high temperatures to the upper 70s. By the evening, clouds will begin to increase along with the chance for showers. Nighttime low will be in the mild lower 60s.

MONDAY FORECAST DETAILS: Rain chances ramp up to a healthy 50% as a cold front crosses the region. Afternoon temperatures will hover 70 degrees and low temperatures will be in the 40s. 

EXTENDED FORECAST: Cooler 60s return Tuesday under partly sunny skies and mostly dry conditions. A gradual warming trend will last Wednesday through Friday and rain chances will range from 30-40%.  By next weekend, expect seasonably cool 60s and mostly sunny skies.
