"Don't be surprised if you see a little fog in the morning, but we are certainly warming up," WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth said. "It's going to be absolutely beautiful during the day."

Monday will be partly to mostly cloudy and mild as high cirrus clouds thicken up at times. Highs will be in the lower 60s.

"We'll have a few chilly nights, but overall, it's going to be very mild and warm this week," she said.

Monday night into Tuesday brings a slight chance of rain early in the day, followed by brightening skies and lower humidity in the afternoon.

Highs should reach the low to mid 60s.

"Beyond Tuesday we're looking at some cooler temperatures, but generally very comfortable in North Carolina," Wilmoth said.

"After this snow storm, it looks like we're good to go for a while with mild temperatures and no chance for winter weather," she said.
