Comfortable temperatures, low humidity and sunshine highlight the weather in the Wilson Times area’s Labor Day weekend.

A cold front was expected to clear our area and move to the coast by Saturday morning. With a broad high pressure ridge taking over, gusty northeast winds are forecast to bring in cooler temperatures.

The highs Saturday will barely get to 80, followed by around 60 overnight. The western to northwestern part of our area, from Zebulon to Spring Hope, could see the upper 50s. 

While the southern part of our area, from Kenly to Black Creek, Fremont, Walstonburg and Fountain, will likely settle in the low 60s, there is a slightly increased chance of a Saturday evening shower there.

Otherwise, rain probabilities stay at 15% or less through Monday.

High temperatures Sunday and Monday are expected to reach the mid-80s.

Overnight lows slowly increase, stopping in the low 60s near daybreak Monday and the mid-60s on Tuesday.
