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 for Saturday and Sunday.

SATURDAY FORECAST DETAILS: Enjoy partly cloudy skies, light south breezes, and more spring-like temperatures starting in the 60s, warming through the 70s - in some cases close to 80, and back to the 60s Saturday night. Shower chances will hover near 20% amid southwesterly breezes.

SUNDAY FORECAST: A fair start to the morning will feature mild temps and perhaps a few patches of fog. Clouds will be on the increase by the afternoon with shower chances growing to 30% late in the day.

A PEEK INTO NEXT WEEK: Expect days and nights to trend cooler with high in the 60s to near 70 and lows in the 40s and 50s, respectively. The change will be caused by a passing cold front which could also bring some unsettled weather come Monday. Shower chances: near 50% Monday, 0% Tuesday and 40% Wednesday.
