1. Re: Clothing


You will need a little bit of everything. From Christmas until late last week, the Brunswick county beaches (Oak Island, Holden, Ocean Isle, and Sunset; we own a beach home on Holden) were enjoying great weather with highs in the mid 70's. This week there is a severe cold front coming through and the highs are only forecasted to be high 30's to low 40's; with the wind chill on the beaches it feels even colder. By the week's end the forecast has the temps. back in the 50's. The average high in February is around 60 degrees; by March things are much more favorable for warmer weather, but there can be cold spells then also. The average temp. in March is a little above the mid 60's. From this time of year until mid April, I always pack shorts, t-shirts, sweatshirts, sweaters, pants, and coats, gloves, a thick scarf and ear muffs, just to be prepared!

Best Wishes!
