— Sunday will be slightly warmer than Saturday, but still brisk, making for a pleasant end to the weekend and a beautiful final day for the fair.

"We'll have bright skies today as we reach the upper 60s and low 70s, and all with less wind," said WRAL meteorologist Mike Moss. "Throughout the day we'll be mild and dry."

While Sunday morning started off in the lower 40s, temperatures will quickly climb into the upper 60s with abundant sunshine for the final day of the North Carolina State Fair.

The sunshine and warmer temperatures will begin to thaw the chill leftover from Saturday night.

Temperatures on Saturday in Raleigh rose into the upper 50s but dipped into the 30s overnight, allowing some North Carolina residents to see some frost during some of the coolest weather of the season so far.

A high pressure system moving in Sunday will bring beautiful weather for the end of the weekend and the start of the work week. Temperatures on Monday will once again climb into the 70s while the rest of the week will be dry with temperatures in the 60s.
