The Wilson Times area is forecast to have a strong probability of showers and even a thunderstorm Saturday as a coastal low is joined by another low moving off of South Carolina.
While the combined system is expected to stay generally stalled through Monday thanks to being held in check by high pressure over New England, we should see increasing sunshine starting Sunday afternoon. By Tuesday, skies will likely be mostly sunny.
Precipitation chances are 80% Saturday, dropping to 25% to 30% on Sunday and Monday.
Afternoon high temperatures Saturday, Sunday and Monday are forecast to stay in the mid- to upper 70s, with Monday having a chance of being a few degrees warmer depending on the location and intensity of the offshore low.
Overnight lows will hold in the mid-60s.
