Raleigh, N.C. — Warmer temperatures on Sunday will be accompanied by lots of fog and cloud cover, but the chance for rain is not prominent.
According to WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner, temperatures will remain very warm for most of the day. At 8 a.m., temperatures in the Triangle were already in the mid 50s and rising quickly.
According to Gardner, the day will see temperatures of 70 degrees by lunchtime that should top out in the mid 70s.
"It's a great day for a cookout," she said. "There's a slight chance these clouds could produce a sprinkle, but any rain that develops will disappear quickly."
The week ahead will be even warmer, and still cloudy, with highs remaining in the upper 70s through Wednesday.
A greater chance for rain and storms comes later in the week, when temperatures remain spring-like but drop into the 60s.
