Eastern North Carolina will see ample relief from Hurricane Dorian this weekend and into the workweek, Al Thomas says in the latest installment of The Wilson Times Weathercast brought to you by NCWheels.com.

High-pressure systems should dominate the weather through Tuesday, bringing highs in the mid-80s and lows in the mid-60s. The greater Wilson area should stay just to the north of a surface trough bringing hotter weather, with highs likely to reach 90 each day perhaps as close as Fayetteville.

Sunday brings a 25% chance of a pop-up shower or thunderstorm edging up to 30% Monday and Tuesday. Temperatures should warm to the upper 80s as the week wears on.

Looking forward to the beginning of fall? Listen to the Weathercast to find out when seasonal average lows reach the low 50s.


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.
