Raleigh, N.C. — After a week of winter weather, the Triangle will feel a bit more like spring on Saturday and Sunday with temperatures in the 50s and 60s.
But the warmer weather will come with a chance for rain.
"The most likely scenario is that we all get some rain between 2 and 8 a.m.," said WRAL Chief Meteorologist Greg Fishel. "The heaviest and most persistent rain will be Triangle and south from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be a few showers later in the afternoon into the evening."
Showers, not severe but steady, will come and go throughout the day on Saturday as temperatures rise into the low 60s.
"It will will be a breezy and warm Saturday," WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze said. "We have two chances for showers. Once in the morning and then later around the afternoon and evening."
Sunday looks like a good day to be outdoors. The rain moves out and bright sun will dominate with temperatures in the 50s.
"We have sunshine for Sunday," Maze said. "And we have warming taking place."
The clear skies and warming trend continue into Monday, when the forecast high reaches 65 degrees.
Tuesday is the next change for rain with the temperature spiking to the high 70s.
