— Bright sunshine was out early Saturday, marking the beginning of a beautiful weekend that will include plenty of golden rays and high temperatures in the mid-70s.

Saturday morning started cool, with temperatures in the mid-50s, but temperatures will climb into the 70s by lunchtime, WRAL meteorologist Mike Moss said.

Highs will climb even higher on Sunday, topping out near 80 degrees under mostly sunny skies.

Rain chances return Monday and Tuesday as temperatures return to the low 70s.

Overnight lows will dip into the upper 50s for the next several days.
