— Our rain chances for the rest of the week are decreasing, according to WRAL meteorologist Peta Sheerwood.

According to Sheerwood, rain chances are now "very low" for the rest of the week. Scattered showers are more likely to fall south of the Triangle on Thursday or Friday.

Wednesday and the rest of the work week will be dry, with highs in the low to mid 50s. Wednesday will be a sunnier day than Thursday and Friday, which will be partly cloudy.

Sheerwood said we could see almost full sunshine on Wednesday afternoon, but it could be breezy, with some gusts up to 20 mph.

Friday will be one of the warmest days of the week, with a high around 56 degrees in Raleigh, as mild temperatures move in from a warm front.

The Triangle's average temperature for January is 42 degrees.

Temperatures are expected to tumble for the weekend, then the next best chance for rain appears to move in later Sunday into Monday.
