The long respite from the realities of winter is finally coming to a close.
Spring-like weather will hold on into Thursday, but a sustained period of cold temperatures is poised to enter The Wilson Times' area by the second half of the weekend.
Showers and sometimes gusty southerly winds won't keep temperatures from hitting 70 degrees Tuesday and the mid-60s Wednesday. The seasonal average is around 50.
As clouds begin to clear Thursday, highs will struggle to get to 60 with much of the area dropping to near freezing overnight Thursday. Particularly in the northwestern parts of The Wilson Times' area, high temperatures Friday may well stop just short of 50.
A warm front is likely to increase shower chances again overnight Friday into Saturday evening with a short spike in temperatures Saturday afternoon to around 60.
That may be it for above average temperatures for a while.
The high Sunday even with sunny skies is likely not to eclipse 50, followed by highs in the 40s and lows in the 20s through much of next week.
