This weekend, high pressure and low moisture will bring chilly temperatures and clear skies, followed by warming weather during the work week, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington.

We will begin this morning with some clouds developing before dawn, though skies will still be mostly sunny. The clouds will clear again throughout the day.
