Raleigh, N.C. — Another record high was broken Tuesday as the high temperature at Raleigh-Durham International Airport hit 74 degrees before 3 p.m. today.
The old record for Dec. 11 was 72 degrees, set in 1971.
The high of 81 degrees Monday at Raleigh-Durham International Airport set a new record for Dec. 10. The previous record high for the date was 76 degrees set in 1972.
