"Five Things you Need to Know Today" is a Patch column that provides readers with essential, daily information at a glance.
1. Friday arrives with a bit of sunshine in Wilmington. According to Weather.com, temperatures will hit 50° as the week comes to a close in town. There is only a 10 percent chance of rain on the day with skies featuring a mixture of sun and clouds.
