Weathercast: Warm, sunny weekend, then predictions get hazy

Thank you for being one of our most loyal readers. Please consider supporting community journalism by subscribing.


The weekend weather in The Wilson Times’ area promises to be warm, with high temperatures in the mid- to upper 80s, and sunny.

By late Sunday through Wednesday, the reliability of any promise is suspect.

A stationary front setting up across central Virginia on Sunday should stay north of eastern North Carolina.  A strong coastal low that is likely to develop into a tropical system off of Florida over the weekend should move well east of our coast Monday as it turns northeastward.  A low pressure system slowly moving across North Carolina late Monday into Wednesday should stay weak.

Any deviation of those systems could substantially change the outlook.

Most weather models are showing a 25% chance of showers and thunderstorms here by Monday. The probabilities rise to 40% late afternoon and then 50% early Tuesday into Wednesday.
