Rain on Saturday should bring mild weekend temperatures as a low-pressure system moves in, but a cold front expected to sweep through eastern North Carolina on Monday will bring the chill back, Albert Thomas Jr. explains in this weekend installment of The Wilson Times Weathercast brought to you by

An 80 percent chance of rain means a soggy Saturday is likely, with rainfall totals expected between a half-inch to three quarters of an inch. High temperatures Saturday through Monday should hover around the seasonal average of 62 degrees, but the mercury is expected to start falling Monday afternoon as the cold front moves in.

Daytime highs Tuesday through Thursday should remain around 50, with overnight lows Monday through Wednesday ranging from 30 to 33 degrees.
