A major change in what had become a static summer pattern is forecast this weekend, knocking high temperatures down into the 70s, Al Thomas explains in this installment of The Wilson Times Weathercast brought to you by NCWheels.com.

A cold front expected to reach the area on Saturday should hold daytime highs to 76-78 degrees, well below the seasonal average of 87. There's a 50% chance of showers or at least a light drizzle. Sunday's high rebounds to 80 under sunnier skies, beginning a climb to the mid-80s by Tuesday. Rain chances should hold steady at 25% Sunday through Tuesday.

Lows should range from the mid-60s Saturday through Monday to 70 on Tuesday night. Early forecasts call for a return to typical summer weather on Wednesday, with the high reaching 90 and a 30% chance of an afternoon thunderstorm.


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