An expansive high-pressure system stretching from Louisiana through North Carolina promises to give The Wilson Times area mostly clear skies and seasonable temperatures New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.

Highs Tuesday will run a  little above average, with most seeing 60, but Wednesday's highs will be exactly at the averages between 50 and 52. The temperature at midnight when the date changes from 2019 to 2020 should be around 50. Temperatures will likely fall to the mid-30s by sunrise New Year's Day.

As the dominating high moves across the South and then offshore, temperatures will begin to rise Thursday with a chance of showers by evening. Even warmer air is due Friday with highs in the 70s.

Cooler air returns Saturday followed by colder air early next week when the in dip in the jet stream finally moves eastward. There is still no sign of snow, however.
