Raleigh, N.C. — Just like your clock, the weather has also leaped forward to spring – for a few days anyway.
The Triangle was treated to a second-day of spring-like weather Sunday with sunny skies and temperatures reaching the mid-60s.
The above-normal weather is welcome as some in the western part of the Triangle continue to recover from Friday’s winter storm that knocked out power to more than 460,000 customers throughout the state, including Durham, Orange and Granville counties.
Triangle temperatures will remain above normal as daytime highs are expected to reach the low 70s Monday and Tuesday, WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth said.
The next cold front rolls in Wednesday, bringing with it a chance of rain. Current computer models project anywhere from a tenth to a quarter of an inch in the area.
Colder air awaits behind the front, Wilmoth said. Highs will drop to the 40s on Thursday with partly cloudy skies.
Temperatures will climb to the low 60s by Saturday.
