— Cold, dry conditions spread across the state Tuesday, prompting freeze warnings in many counties for the early hours of Wednesday, and red flag warnings in areas where gusty winds could create a fire danger.

Temperatures in the Triangle reached a high of 61 degrees under sunny skies Tuesday, but will dip back into the low-30s overnight.

“This is expected to be the coldest night of the week,” said WRAL Meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner.

On Wednesday the warming trend takes hold, and temperatures will warm into the 70s and 80s through the end of the week before another cold front moves into the area, possibly causing rain on Saturday.

Gardner said the weekend front is expected to cool things off slightly, possibly keeping temperatures in the 70s.

    Can someone at least get it right, if you don't know, don't say it...they keep pushing back the warmth...what's up with that?

    I have noticed that the weather people in this area are not very good at predicting the weather at all even with the technology they have. It's kind of irritating when you plan for one thing and get another.

    Keep that sheet handy because these weather people aren't known for their skills at predicting much past 12-24 hours. I have alsways said it is embarrasing to watch sometimes.

    That will work....just make sure you uncover them the first thing in the morning so the sun doesn't cook them. An old bed sheet would work better
