It will feel cold enough to snow this weekend, but meteorological models only predict rain for the greater Wilson area, Albert Thomas Jr. says in this weekend's installment of The Wilson Times Weathercast brought to you by

Rainfall should begin by mid-evening Saturday and continue into Sunday morning. With overnight lows around 33 to 34 degrees, there's a slight chance some sleet could be mixed with the rain, but no accumulations are expected.

Sunday's high should top out in the upper 30s with a low in the low 30s. There's an outside chance of a stray snow flurry on Monday, but with a daytime high around 40, nothing is expected to stick. For more on the weekend forecast, click the play button at the bottom of this page.
