The Wilson Times area should enjoy mild temperatures and low humidity Tuesday and Wednesday as high pressure to the north pushes light northerly winds our way.

High temperatures Tuesday, even with bright sunshine, are expected to hold in the mid-70s. Overnight lows will likely break just below 60.

Wednesday starts out sunny as high temperatures get to the 77-to-80-degree range. Clouds are scheduled to increase later in the day.

By Thursday, the front edge of the remnants of Storm Sally will be arriving from the southwest. Rain is expected to begin in the afternoon, although the weather models vary from overnight Wednesday to Thursday evening for its start.

Rain could be heavy Friday.

By Saturday, an expansive Canadian high pressure system will clear out the rain and bring in sunshine and low humidity, but with below average temperatures.
