Raleigh, N.C. — After a week of wintry chill, weather across the Triangle will feel a bit more like spring on Saturday and Sunday, but that warmup will come with the chance for rain.
The best chance for showers is through Saturday morning, WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth said.
"Friday will still be on the cool side of normal," Wilmoth said, "although we will see plenty of sun."
Temperatures that dipped into the 20s again overnight will reach the upper 50s in Raleigh to about 60 degrees in Fayetteville by late afternoon.
Clouds gather after dark Friday night, and the chance for rain grows from about 30 percent just after midnight Saturday to 50 percent by daybreak.
Showers, not severe but steady, will come and go throughout the day on Saturday as temperatures rise into the low 60s.
Skies clear Saturday after dark, and Sunday looks like a lovely day. The rain moves out and bright sun will dominate with temperatures in the 50s.
The clear skies and warming trend continue into Monday, when the forecast high reaches 70 degrees.
