— Tired of the cold? A huge warm-up is headed our way.

According to WRAL meteorologist Mike Moss, Raleigh could see highs in the 60s on Sunday, and the trend will last several days.

Temperatures will feel a little chilly on Sunday and Monday mornings, but mild weather will move in by lunchtime both days. "Look for lots of sun and afternoon highs in the low to mid 60s," said Moss. "We're going to be at above normal temperatures through Tuesday at least."

Highs reached 56 degrees Saturday, but Sunday and Monday will be even warmer, with highs in the low to mid 60s. Tuesday will be warm as well before a cold front brings cooler air and some possible rain and thunderstorms to the area.

"Our normal high is about 51 degrees, and it looks like we'll run well on the warm side of that through Tuesday before a return to near normal for the remainder of the work week," said Moss. "It remains uncertain if we'll have a threat of severe storms, but even without them there may be some gusty periods late Monday night and Tuesday, perhaps 30 to 40 mph at times."

7-Day Forecast

Although rain could move in to the area Tuesday, Sunday and Monday should be dry for most, according to Moss, and the bright skies and warmer temperatures should be perfect for outdoor activities to finish the weekend and start the new work week.
