Warm, springlike weather should stick around through the start of the workweek with a cooldown beginning Tuesday, Albert Thomas Jr. explains in this weekend's installment of The Wilson Times Weathercast brought to you by NCWheels.com.

Expect daytime highs around 60 degrees Saturday and Monday and highs reaching the mid-60s Sunday and Tuesday thanks to a strong polar jetstream keeping arctic air bottled up in Canada. Temperatures will start cooling on Tuesday, with Wednesday's high in the low 50s and daytime temps in the 40s on Thursday and Friday.

The average seasonal high for the Wilson area is 51 and the average low is around 30. The cold air could break through in a week or so with the potential for a cold snap on the horizon.


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.
