— Monday started out with chilly temperatures -- so chilly, in fact, that a light frost was spotted by some in the early hours.


However, according to WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner, the morning's frosty temperatures are no indication of the week ahead, which will feel a lot like summer.

Temperatures will climb into the 70s on Monday with abundant sunshine, but compared to the rest of the week, that's nothing.

Tuesday will be even warmer, with highs in the low 80s, before Wednesday and Thursday and Friday see temperatures in the mid to upper 80s.

The weekend will be just as warm, though some rain is likely by Saturday.

According to Gardner, the work week will be sunny and clear, and it will be a perfect time to enjoy outdoor activities and events.
