With weekend and early workweek temperatures in the low 90s, this stretch of May feels more like July, Albert Thomas Jr. says in the latest installment of The Wilson Times Weathercast brought to you by ENCWheels.com.

While Wilson's average high for this time of year is around 80 degrees, high temperatures Saturday, Sunday and Monday should be closer to - but still below - the record high of 97 degrees recorded in1956. The average low is in the low- to mid-50s, and Wilson should see overnight lows in the mid-60s.

A slight chance of afternoon thunderstorms increases to 30 percent on Monday with the possibility of a trough developing. How long will the summer-like heat continue? Check the Weathercast on Tuesday to find out.
