Wednesday morning fog is moving out of our area and we'll be able to see some sunshine this afternoon.

It will be another warm day, with highs reaching the 80s in the afternoon on Wednesday. There's a slight chance of scattered showers in our far southeastern counties around lunchtime. Other than those possible storms, the Triangle is looking dry.

The storms, if they do develop, will likely fall apart in the evening.

There is a small chance of scattered storms over the next couple of days, but overall the weather is still looking nice, WRAL meteorologist Zach Maloch said.

Expect that tomorrow morning you could see some more thick fog on your drive into work.

Temperatures rising in the Triangle

Temperatures will remain above normal throughout the rest of the week, and possibly next week.

"The best chance we have of a cold-front getting close to us will come as we head into the weekend, but even then it's not going to really push through," said WRAL meteorologist Kat Campbell.

A cold-front bringing back colder air to the Triangle probably won't arrive until Wednesday or Thursday of next week.

Morning lows throughout the week will stay in the low 50s.
