Before May flowers come April showers, and the greater Wilson area can expect a regular rotation of showers and possible thunderstorms every few days this week, Albert Thomas Jr. explains in The Wilson Times Weathercast brought to you by

On Tuesday, there's a 60 percent chance of scattered showers and storms dropping to 20 percent by evening. More rain is expected Friday afternoon and early Saturday.

Temperatures should remain in the mid-70s for much of the week, with Wednesday topping out in the lower 70s due to a cold front and Saturday peaking in the upper 70s. While the cold front won't affect daytime temperatures much, Wednesday's overnight low will be a chilly 45 degrees. Lows should be in the mid-50s the rest of the week.
