— More record breaking warmth is expected Wednesday, with temperatures close to 80 degrees. There is a slight risk for severe storms in the forecast.

The morning could start off with an overcast, but that will not last as long – allowing for more sunshine. It will be very windy Wednesday, WRAL Meteorologist Mike Maze said, bringing the possibility of showers and thunderstorms in the evening.

Temperatures in the Triangle broke a record Tuesday afternoon, hitting 74 degrees at RDU, Maze said.

Warm winds from the Gulf Coast continued to blow across North Carolina Tuesday evening, keeping temperatures in the low 50s to upper 60s. It was partly cloudy, breezy and warm.

Temperatures for the rest of the week will be closer to the seasonal average, with highs in the 50s and overnight lows in the 30s.

    "Global warming" is a vehicle created to increase the size and power of government. It's working.

    Uh...thanks for your complete scientific assessment. I was starting to get worried about global warming, but your convincing argument has put my mind at ease.
