Raleigh, N.C. — Temperatures were cooler than usual Sunday morning, signaling the start of a mild, pleasant Father's Day perfect for outdoor activities.
"We had a cool start this morning, with temperatures dropping into the low 50s in some places across the viewing area," said WRAL meteorologist Mike Moss.
Temperatures will rise throughout the day, topping out in the mid-80s by Sunday afternoon, but, with low humidity, the day should feel very mild.
Skies will be clear, too, and rain is unlikely. The pleasant weather is expected to continue Monday, the summer solstice, with temperatures peaking in the upper-80s.
According to Moss, storms will be possible by Tuesday evening that could linger mid-week, but, with highs will remaining in the upper-80s to low-90s, it should be a significantly cooler week than last week.
