Bright sunshine and reasonably comfortable temperatures highlight the weather in the Wilson Times area this weekend.
If the forecast holds, it could hardly be any better for outside activities.
With dew points low and clear skies, the nighttime will quickly cool off, but the afternoons’ boost from the sun will be substantial.
There is little chance of any precipitation through Tuesday.
Afternoon high temperatures should go from the mid-80s Saturday to the upper 80s Sunday and then to around 90 on Monday and Tuesday.
Overnight lows travel a similar route, going from the mid-50s at wake-up Saturday to the mid-60s by wake-up Monday.
An increase in shower chances could arrive by Wednesday.
