High-pressure systems that brought a two-week heat wave have weakened and dissipated, clearing the way for milder conditions that still offer plenty of sunshine and pleasant early-June warmth.

Expect daytime highs ranging from 85 to 88 degrees Saturday and Sunday with lows in the mid-60s overnight, Albert Thomas Jr. says in this weekend's installment of The Wilson Times Weathercast brought to you by NCWheels.com.

The greater Wilson area will see a 40% chance of thunderstorms during the day Saturday following Friday's cold front. A second cold front should push through on Sunday, bringing a 20% chance of storms.

The workweek should begin with mostly sunny skies and daytime temperatures maxing out at 80-82 degrees Monday and Tuesday. Lows will dip into the mid-50s on Monday and the upper 50s on Tuesday night.


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.
