Wilson County could see tropical storm-force winds and heavy rain early next week if an offshore low-pressure system veers west, but in the meantime, expect a relief from the blistering heat this weekend.

A cold front moving through on Saturday will hold the high temperature to 80 degrees and bring showers and storms in the morning and early afternoon, Albert Thomas Jr. explains in this installment of The Wilson Times Weathercast brought to you by ENCWheels.com.

Rain chances decrease to 10 percent on Sunday with highs in the mid-80s. Overnight lows this weekend should be in the mid-60s.

Forecasts call for the mercury edging back up to the mid-90s Tuesday, but with the potential for tropical storm development late Monday and Tuesday, everything is up in the air. Listen to the Weathercast below for more on the possible early-week storms.
