The most pleasant weather of the week in the Wilson Times area is forecast for Tuesday, but an active weather pattern arrives by Wednesday afternoon.

After some early fog burns off, Tuesday should be bright with mostly full sunshine. The high temperature will reach the mid-70s.

A quickly advancing cold front is scheduled to enter North Carolina overnight.

Our area has a 20% chance of a shower starting just after midnight and continuing into the afternoon. A morning low of 50 will be followed by the mid-70s in the afternoon.

Wednesday will be windy, with gusts into the 20s as a south wind moves to the northwest.

With a Canadian high pressure system firmly in control, overnight Wednesday and Thursday lows will likely drop into the upper 30s. There is a risk of some frost early Friday if winds calm enough.

Highs Thursday, even with full sun, will struggle to get into the low 60s.

The cold snap should come to an abrupt halt Friday as temperatures touch 70 by midafternoon. Saturday and Sunday will also see highs around 70 with overnight Friday recovering to the mid-40s.

Showers and thunderstorms are due to arrive by Saturday afternoon with a continuing risk of precipitation into Sunday morning.

The Weathercast’s audio should return with Saturday’s report.
