The first day of spring was March 20, but a return to normalcy this week after seesawing weather patterns will mean eastern North Carolina can expect springlike temperatures for the foreseeable future.

Comfortable temperatures begin Wednesday, when the high of 68 and low of 43 will match the Wilson area's seasonal average, Albert Thomas Jr. explains in this week's installment of The Wilson Times Weathercast brought to you by NCWheels.com.

Rain is forecast roughly every third day, which should help wash away the abundance of spring pollen. Expect a high in the mid-70s and a low around 50 on Thursday, followed by the upper 60s and mid-50s on Friday with light showers passing through during the day. Saturday's highs are forecast to reach the mid-70s.


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.
