After a chilly and soggy start to the weekend, the greater Wilson area should start to realize the promise of spring as the last week of February begins, Albert Thomas Jr. explains in this weekend's installment of The Wilson Times Weathercast brought to you by NCWheels.com.
Saturday's high should stall out in the mid-40s under overcast skies with high chances of rain, but Sunday should see temperatures in the low 70s with gusty winds by midmorning. A fast-moving cold front is expected to yield to a recently rare high-pressure system parking over the area Monday and Tuesday.
Both days should see highs around 60 with plenty of sunshine and only a 10 percent chance of showers, with lows in the lower 30s overnight. Early models indicate the chance of rain could pick up on Wednesday.
