Heat. And plenty of it.
That is the weather outlook for much of this week in the Wilson Times area.
Afternoon high temperatures will probably stay close to our historical average of 90 degrees Tuesday through Friday, but the heat index will add up to 10 degrees to the feel of it all. Those peaks will occur between 2-5 p.m.
Thunderstorm chances are highest at 50% on Tuesday and then 40% on Friday.
Saturday is expected to bring relief. High temperatures are forecast to hold in the mid-80s under partly cloudy skies with a heat index barely touching 90.
Overnight lows will mostly settle in the low to mid-70s.
