Hot, sunny today; 90-degree weather to end the week

Today and the rest of the week will be mostly sunny and hot, with highs in the low 90s through the first part of the weekend.

The high temperature is expected to reach 87 degrees today and 89 degrees Thursday according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington. Overall today will be dry, but there is a slight chance for isolated showers.

“Sprawling upper-level high pressure will cause temperatures to be just a bit warmer each day through the rest of the week,” the NWS said. “Most of the area will eventually end up at or above 90, which will be a week or so ahead of the average first 90-degree day.”

Overnight lows will be in the low to mid-60s.

Temperatures should reach the low 90s Friday and Saturday.

Saturday night will be partly cloudy with an overnight low around 64 degrees.

It won’t be as hot for Sunday, which will be sunny with a high near 89 degrees.

High temperatures are expected in the middle to upper 80s for Monday and Tuesday.
