Raleigh, N.C. — Thick fog slowed the morning commute Thursday in some spots across the Triangle, but no major or slowdowns or wrecks were reported.
A dense fog advisory issued by the National Weather Service overnight was scheduled to expire at 9 a.m., and sunshine should quickly warm up temperatures across the area.
Temperatures will climb into the 70s by lunchtime and top out in the low 80s during the afternoon.
On Friday, some spots could see daytime highs creep into the upper 80s.
"Our forecast high is 87 degrees, and if we get there it will be the warmest day of the year," Gardner said.
Rain chances return Saturday as a cold front pushes through the state, but the dreary weather won't stick around long. Clearing will begin late on Mother's Day and abundant sunshine will return for the beginning of next week.
The system will also help push temperatures back down, with daytime highs Monday and Tuesday struggling to get out of the mid-60s.
