The biggest dip southward of the jet stream this season will give the Wilson Times area chilly temperatures Saturday and Saturday night.

Afterwards, though, a steady warmup is expected.

Even with clearing skies, the high Saturday is forecast to stay in the low 60s, followed by the low 40s overnight.  Areas along a line from Momeyer to Spring Hope to Bunn and northwestward are more likely to land in the upper 30s.

High temperatures rebound to 70 by Sunday afternoon, followed by the mid-70s Monday and the upper 70s on Tuesday. Overnight lows will likely stay around 50 overnight Sunday, the mid-50s overnight Monday and then near 60 overnight Tuesday.

Skies should be mostly clear with less than a 10% chance of precipitation through Tuesday.

Winds will be light from the northeast through Tuesday, though they could be a little gusty for a short while midday Saturday.

Wednesday may well see 80 degrees under partly cloudy skies.
