The last week of August in eastern North Carolina will be seasonable and temperate, with highs and lows tracking close to the average of mid-80s during the day and mid-60s overnight, Al Thomas says in this week's installment of The Wilson Times Weathercast brought to you by NCWheels.com.

Tuesday's high won't escape the low 80s, but daytime temps should range from 86-88 Wednesday through Saturday with a possible 90-degree high on Sunday. A warm front followed by a passing cold front will bring a 40% chance of showers and thunderstorms Wednesday afternoon or early evening.

Another cold front is expected Sunday, bringing the possibility of nighttime showers. Sunny skies are in the forecast for Thursday and Friday with partly cloudy skies on Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday.


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.
