Weathercast: Warm front brings mild start to February

Winter-like weather has been absent much of December and January, and as February begins it is yet again nowhere in sight.

A warming trend gets underway Sunday, powered by a warm high pressure system to our south. After a Saturday high only in the low 50s with temperatures overnight falling to the upper 30s, the Wilson Times area should see daily highs all above 60 through next Saturday.

Sunday's high is expected to reach 60. Then, highs will hover a few degrees either side of 70 until Thursday when heavy cloud cover and rains keeps temperatures in the low- to mid-60s.

Overnight lows will rise from Saturday's upper 30s to the low 40s overnight Sunday and then spring to the mid-50s overnight Monday and Tuesday and perhaps 60 overnight Wednesday.

Rain is forecast to leave by midmorning Saturday at the latest and not return until Wednesday when a chance of showers sets in and stays through Friday morning. With a slow-moving cold front likely moving across the state, Thursday may be the wettest day.
