The Bermuda high pressure system that dominated the weather this past week in the Wilson Times area will start to lose its grip after Saturday.
A trough Sunday, and a stalling cold front late Sunday and Monday, will bring substantial changes.
Saturday is forecast to be most sunny and hot with high temperatures around 90. There is a 30% chance of thunderstorms, particularly in the late afternoon and early evening.
Sunday’s thunderstorm chances jump to 50% with some risk of intense storms as the cold front moves closer. Highs will again get to 90 if the storms hold off until the afternoon.
By Monday, the front should be over us, causing shower and thunderstorm probabilities to get to 70%. High temperatures Monday may well only touch 80.
