Raleigh, N.C. — More sun and drier conditions emerge for Sunday, but temperatures will start in the 30s, leading to a possible patchy frost. The high temps for the day will reach the upper 50s or low 60s.
WRAL meteorologist Brian Shrader said it’s about 10 degrees colder Sunday morning compared to Saturday morning.
“You are going to noticed it as you head out, but it is a clear morning,” Shrader said.
Shrader said outdoor burning is discouraged through Sunday afternoon into the evening hours in the Triangle.
“We’re going to see gusty winds later today (and) dry conditions,” Shrader said. “Put that together, and we have increased fire danger.
Shrader said parts central North Carolina have a freeze warning from 3 a.m. Monday to 9 a.m. Monday. The area includes Fayetteville, Goldsboro, Greenville and Tarboro.
WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth said tree pollen could also be an issue, specifically pine.
“If you suffer from allergies it might be a good idea to limit your time outside through the weekend and early next week,” Wilmoth said.
Temperatures could be near freezing overnight Sunday into Monday, but the first part of the new work week will stay mild, with highs in the low 60s. Monday, we may see widespread freezing temperatures across central North Carolina.
Temperatures are expected to be in 31 degrees in Raleigh on Monday morning, so don’t start planing any flowers just yet. In Roxboro, temperatures will dip into the 20s.
Wednesday and Thursday look to bring highs that return us to the mid 70s.
