The Wilson Times area is in the midst of typical summer heat, and there is no relief in sight.

High temperatures Saturday through Tuesday, and probably at least a few days beyond, are forecast to range between the low- and mid-90s.

The heat index, meanwhile, could soar to near 100 degrees Saturday, Wednesday and Thursday and hit the upper 90s Sunday through Tuesday.

Shower and thunderstorm probabilities are highest Saturday and Monday, but even then they only run between 30% and 40%.

Overnight temperatures are expected to hold in the low 70s.
