Relatively cold air is expected to stream into the Wilson Times area Saturday behind gusty northwest winds.  That will be followed by a risk of scattered light frost overnight, almost unheard of this late into spring.

The high temperature Saturday will only reach the 60 to 62-degree range. Overnight lows will settle around 35. 

Sunday should be sunny and a little warmer, in the upper 60s, followed by the upper 40s overnight as winds move to the south.

Another cold front, this one forecast to be dry, arrives Monday, but not before temperatures recover into the low 70s.

Tuesday will be cooler, in the mid-60s, with a warm up into the low 70s expected Tuesday.  The 80s arrive Thursday.

Rain chances stay minimal at least through Tuesday.
