The Wilson Times area is forecast to enjoy mostly seasonal temperatures and plenty of sunshine for several days this week. While a complex low pressure system is threatening the weekend, the weather models are conflicted enough to leave some hope.

Partly cloudy skies Tuesday, after a round of fog and possible light rain, should give way to sunny skies Wednesday and Thursday. A slow rise in temperatures is expected. Daytime highs will go from the mid-50s Tuesday to the upper 50s Wednesday and then to around 60 Thursday. Even with increased clouds and a chance of a few scattered showers, Friday promises highs in the mid-60s.

Overnight will start out cold. At sunrise Wednesday and Thursday morning, temperatures are expected to be in the mid-30s, but then overnight lows climb to the 40s.
