Temperatures will rise again for the work week

Although winter is making a comeback this weekend, temperatures could once again be unseasonably warm again by mid-week, with a forecast high temperature of 68 degrees on Tuesday.

With the milder weather comes rain, according to WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth. Some rain could start in the Triangle by 7 or 8 p.m., but precipitation is much more likely north of Raleigh.

“Our rain chances are fairly low today, but as we head into the overnight hours they really start to ramp up,” said Wilmoth.

Temperatures were chilly in the 30s Sunday morning and will be in 40s around lunchtime with a mix of sun and clouds.

The high this afternoon will be around 49 degrees.

Umbrellas will be a good idea for Monday and Tuesday, which have a 60 percent and a 70 percent chance for rain respectively. Monday will be mild, with highs in the 50s, and Tuesday will be much warmer, with highs close to 70 degrees.

Rain chances drop for Wednesday and Thursday, and highs will be in the low 60s, making for a mild Valentine’s Day.

Next weekend will become cooler again.
