A cold front expected to stall out to our north could bring showers and thunderstorms late this week and into the weekend, Al Thomas explains in this week's installment of The Wilson Times Weathercast brought to you by

Minimal rain chances on Tuesday rise to 20% Wednesday afternoon, but as the cold front sweeps through the mid-Atlantic late Wednesday and Thursday, it should be close enough to increase cloud cover, boost the humidity and raise the chance of rain to 50% Thursday through Saturday.

Daytime highs will be in the low 90s Tuesday through Thursday and the upper 90s Friday and Saturday. Due to the increased humidity, the heat index will remain steady, with readings in the mid-90s, throughout the week and into Saturday.


Albert Thomas Jr., a Wilson attorney and retired judge, will weigh in on Wilson's weather conditions each Tuesday and Saturday. Thomas is a forecast aficionado who recalls Wilson community weatherman Joe Overman's broadcasts on WVOT radio.
