Heat indexes could reach 100 degrees as a blazing summer sun combines with a return to high humidity this week, Albert Thomas Jr. explains in The Wilson Times Weathercast brought to you by ENCWheels.com.

High temperatures in Wilson are expected to stay in the low- to mid-90s Tuesday through Friday, increased rain chances on Friday and Saturday bringing the only opportunity for respite. Without summer showers, expect stuffy, humid air to keep the heat indexes high as weekend temperatures decline into the upper 80s.

Wilson has yet to break the century mark this summer, with the highest recorded temperature in 2018 pegged at 99 degrees on June 19. Goldsboro recorded 101 degrees that day. The record high for this forecast period in Wilson is 102, set in 1948.
