The temperature forecast for our area this week appears set — cold Tuesday, a brief warm up Wednesday and then the coldest temperatures of the season starting Friday.

What is far from set is the precipitation part.

There is a good chance that showers Thursday will be followed by snow overnight and Friday. As of this posting, though, a vigorous debate about the amount of snow, and timing, was still taking place among the weather models followed by the Weathercast.

None of the six models were in sync. 

High temperatures Tuesday in the mid-40s under partly cloudy skies are forecast to be followed by the mid- to upper 50s Wednesday and around 50 degrees on Thursday. Friday, though, will probably not get above freezing.

Overnight Wednesday will likely be the only period with lows above freezing. By early Sunday morning, we could see lows in the mid- to upper teens.

Albert Thomas Jr., a Wilson attorney and retired judge, will weigh in on the region’s weather conditions each Tuesday and Saturday. Thomas is a forecast aficionado who recalls Wilson community weatherman Joe Overman’s broadcasts on WVOT radio.
