The pattern of cloudy skies and mostly chilly temperatures is expected to persist this week as each day holds a substantial chance of rain Tuesday through Saturday.

Showers are expected Tuesday evening, and while some forecast models disagree, the National Weather Service was predicting a chance of light freezing rain between 5 and 8 a.m. Wednesday, Al Thomas explains in this week's installment of The Wilson Times Weathercast brought to you by NCWheels.com.

Expect at least a 50 percent chance of rain Tuesday through Saturday. A warm front could increase daytime highs to the 66-70-degree range on Thursday, but a cold front on its heels should knock highs back down to the low- to mid-50s by Friday.

The next chance for a substantial warmup ins on Sunday, when the greater Wilson area could see a return to the 70s.
