Morning showers in the Wilson Times area Tuesday will likely become sparse by afternoon, with probabilities around 20% into Wednesday morning. Temperatures, meanwhile, are forecast to climb to the comfortable upper 60s. 

The mild weather is not expected to last, however.

After another day in the mid- to upper 60s Wednesday, accompanied by a good chance of afternoon showers and gusty winds, a cold front will put an end to the thoughts of spring by evening.

Highs Thursday and Friday, even with sunshine, will struggle to get to 50 while overnight lows fall below freezing in the 30- to 32-degree range.

Saturday and Sunday could be even cooler, with highs in the upper 40s and overnight lows in the upper 20s.

A warming trend should get underway Monday.
