The Triangle has seven consecutive days of 60+ degree weather to look forward to this weekend and into next week. However, a potential for rain and even severe weather may dampen weekend plans.

Friday has been a mild but cloudy day with temperatures around the mid 60s. Saturday and Sunday both break into the low to mid 70s. Saturday brings Raleigh close to the record high of 76 degrees, reached over 100 years ago in 1890.

Saturday night could also be a record breaker for the low, too. The low is expected to be around 64, which is the record for the warmest night in Raleigh, set in 1913.

There's also potential for rain Saturday night into Sunday afternoon, with the best chance for rain being Sunday morning. There is a slight potential for some strong to severe storms and windy weather. The weather will be windy through most of Saturday.

Once the showers roll out early Sunday, it'll be a nice rest of the day. Monday and Tuesday stay warm, with a chance for wet weather.

Warm temperatures and mostly cloudy skies finish out Wednesday and Thursday next week.
