WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The storm system that brought multiple inches of rain and tropical storm-force wind gusts to southeastern North Carolina will gradually move out to sea Friday night. In the storm's wake, a high pressure system will deliver a brighter and milder weekend.

LATE FRIDAY NIGHT: Showers are done. Skies will partially clear but fog patches may form. Northwest winds may gust more than 20mph initially but in general will stay near steady 10mph speeds. Also - expect low temperatures mainly in the mid 30s. 

WEEKEND: Looks real nice! Leftover moisture may contribute to some fog or a straggling shower early Saturday. Otherwise, expect partly cloudy skies for the weekend. Temperatures will grow to more seasonable levels, too, with highs in the 60s likely for both days.

DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME BEGINS: Don't forget to "spring forward" one hour Saturday night. Officially, 2am Sunday will become 3am. The time change will push Sunday's sunrise time to 7:31am and the sunset time all the way back to 7:15pm!

A PEEK INTO NEXT WEEK: The nice weekend weather will look to carry over into at least Monday and Tuesday of next week. Expect daytime temperatures in the 60s and 70s for then! Wednesday will feature a chance of showers. Thursday's highs look cooler: mainly 50s.
