The pattern of swings in temperature and intermittent rain isn't expected to break this weekend or early in the workweek, with rain in the forecast for Monday and early Tuesday followed by a brief cold snap, Albert Thomas Jr. explains in this edition of The Wilson Times Weathercast brought to you by NCWheels.com.

A high-pressure system should ensure comfortable weekend temperatures during the day, however, with a high around 60 on Saturday and in the mid- to upper 60s Sunday and Monday. Saturday's low should range from 30-33 degrees with a chance of frost.

Expect a 60 percent chance of showers Monday afternoon increasing to 80 percent overnight Monday and early Tuesday. Daytime highs should be in the mid-50s on Tuesday with frigid overnight lows knocking wind chills into the upper 20s. A slow warming trend is expected to start Wednesday afternoon.


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.
