Raleigh, N.C. — Residents of central and eastern North Carolina will get to enjoy spring-like weather throughout the work week as high temperatures climb into the upper 60s and 70s.
Highs Monday will be in the mid-60s before hitting the 70s Tuesday through Friday.
“It should be a beautiful start to our Monday,” WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth. “We’re going to have a big warmup as we head into next week.”
Wilmoth said that a high pressure system that will be moving offshore will bring warm temperatures that could have many forgetting that it’s still winter.
On Thursday, the forecast high temperature is 79 degrees, just 2 degrees short of the record high temperature of 81 degrees set in 1974.
Temperatures are expected to remain in the 70s through next weekend and skies are expected to remain dry until Saturday, when there is a chance of overnight rain.
