The progression of large, strong high-pressure systems into the Wilson Times area continues this week.
The result is mostly mild days, cool nights and few if any showers. Another result has been a broad shield against tropical systems.
Under mostly sunny skies, temperatures Tuesday afternoon will likely be the warmest of the week in the mid-80s.
Highs Wednesday will back off just a few degrees, into the low 80s, as a dry cold front passes through on its way to Florida. For Thursday through Saturday, high temperatures in most of our area will hold in the upper 70s.
The coolest overnight temperatures will occur near wake-up Saturday, with lows falling into the 48- to 52-degree range.
The first shower chance at or above 20% occurs late Sunday.
