After dealing with very dry conditions for much of the spring, the Wilson Times area is now trying to endure very high humidity and numerous showers and thunderstorms as we edge toward summer.
Little change is expected this week.
Precipitation probabilities remain stuck at 50%, particularly during the afternoon and evening periods Tuesday through Saturday.
With afternoon high temperatures reaching the upper 80s Tuesday through Friday, the heat index will get to the 90- to 94-degree range.
Overnight lows, meanwhile, should land around 70.
A cold front’s arrival and, hopefully, departure, will moderate conditions by Sunday.
