Ninety-degree days could be on their last leg this year following a final week of summer heat, Albert Thomas Jr. explains in this week's installment of The Wilson Times Weathercast brought to you by ENCWheels.com.
Wilson County can expect daytime highs hovering around 90 and overnight lows settling at 70 Tuesday through Friday, but when the week runs its course, weather models show very few 90-degree days left. One model predicts the area's overall temperatures will come in below average.
Wilson's record high for this forecast period, a sweltering 104 degrees, was set in 1954. The record low of 49 degrees came in 1976.
A strong high-pressure system should chase the clouds away and keep the skies dry this week.
