A trough’s arrival here Tuesday followed by a cold front stalling near the Virginia border should give the Wilson Times area plenty of chances for showers and thunderstorms through Friday.

It will still be hot Tuesday. Highs are likely to reach the mid-90s while the heat index hits 105 degrees.

Temperatures slowly back off into the low 90s Wednesday and Thursday and possibly even the upper 80s on Friday.

Overnight lows will mostly stay in the 72- to 74-degree range.

The stalled front may make a move into North Carolina on Saturday only to retreat north as a warm front Sunday. Saturday’s high temperature is forecast to be near 90 with Sunday a little warmer in the low 90s.
