— Mid-day sunshine barely boosted temperatures into the 60s Monday afternoon, and the threat of frost is in the air again Tuesday, WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze said.

A frost advisory is in effect for most of the state from 4 a.m. through 9 a.m. Tuesday morning. Overnight lows are expected to be in the 30s in the Triangle and colder in the mountains.

By Tuesday afternoon, the warm-up should put the weather back on average, with highs in the low 70s, Maze said.

Tuesday will see a high around 73 degrees, right around the norm for early fall. Highs in the 70s will continue for the rest of the week.

And overnight lows will eventually start catching up with them. From Wednesday night, nighttime temperatures will stay in 50s.
