Heat indexes in the triple digits and temperatures climbing almost as high will hold sway through midweek, but Wilson could beat the heat if a stationary front hovering over Virginia sweeps southward.
In the meantime, expect daytime highs in the upper 90s that could crack the 100-degree mark Tuesday and Thursday, with heat index values near 106, Albert Thomas Jr. explains in this week's installment of The Wilson Times Weathercast brought to you by ENCWheels.com.
Increased cloudiness is possible Thursday and Friday if the front dips into North Carolina, with temperatures falling into the mid- to upper 80s. Rain chances will increase as the clouds come in.
