A major change in the summer weather pattern has arrived in the Wilson County region, Albert Thomas Jr. explains in this weekend's installment of The Wilson Times Weathercast brought to you by ENCWheels.com.

Hot, dry air will give way as a stationary front moves in, lowering temperatures to daily highs in the mid-80s and overnight lows around 70. The tradeoff is high humidity that will make it feel like the low- to mid-90s and increased rain chances through at least Tuesday.

Showers and storms will be more plentiful, with a 50 percent rain chance early Saturday, overnight Saturday and Sunday morning rising to 80 percent for parts of Monday and Tuesday. Wilson can expect an average of 2 inches of rain, with scattered thunderstorms bringing higher totals in some areas.
