After a brief respite from the heat Tuesday and Wednesday, 90-degree temperatures will come roaring back with a vengeance later this week, Albert Thomas Jr. explains in this week's installment of The Wilson Times Weathercast brought to you by NCWheels.com.

Daytime highs should be in the 82-84-degree range today and Wednesday with overnight lows around 60. That's close to the seasonal average of 81 during the day and 58 at night.

Hot weather returns with a high of 90 degrees on Thursday, the low 90s on Friday, 90 on Saturday and the mid-90s on Sunday. Lows should stall out around 70 degrees. Expect a 15% chance of a pop-up thunderstorm in the afternoons and a 40% chance of rain Thursday night.

While the long-range forecast is subject to change, early predictions call for the possibility of highs in the upper 90s with heat indexes topping triple digits next week.
