Cold air is expected to stick around Saturday and Saturday night, but starting Sunday, the Wilson Times area will enjoy quickly moderating temperatures.

There is little chance of precipitation until Tuesday when a 30% chance of showers arrives.

Sunny skies and a switch in the winds from the northwest to the southwest by midday Sunday will help temperatures get to the upper 50s. That should be followed by the mid-60s Monday and around 70 on Tuesday. Overnight lows will likewise be increasing.
