A high temperature of 90 degrees is forecast for the Wilson Times area Tuesday afternoon as southwest winds push heat and humidity our way.

After another run at 90 on Wednesday, which will likely fall short by three or four degrees, much cooler air arrives.

Thursday and Friday afternoon highs should only manage the low 70s.

There is a thunderstorm risk late Tuesday into the overnight hours, and a chance of thunderstorms or showers Wednesday and again late Thursday. 

The weekend outlook is for partly cloudy skies and warming temperatures.
