Colder today, below normal temps through Easter - NBC 26, Augusta-Aiken, Here for You

Another freezing start Thursday before 70s this weekend

Updated:

Freezing temperatures are expected for the second morning in a row Thursday, but highs in the 70s will return by Easter weekend.

Wednesday morning started off at 33 at the Raleigh-Durham Airport and it will be just as cold Thursday morning.  During the day Wednesday, skies were sunny and winds were out of the north, meaning highs were only in the mid 50s.  The Triangle made it up to 54, while Fayetteville made it up to 57 Wednesday. 

A Freeze Warning will once again be in effect for early Thursday for most areas of central North Carolina west of I-95, including the Triangle.  A freeze warning means freezing temperatures are likely. These conditions could damage crops and other warm season vegetation.  The low by Thursday morning is forecast to be around 32.

Thursday will be mostly sunny and not as chilly with a high of 61 in the afternoon. 

Skies will become mostly cloudy on Friday with highs in the middle 60s.  Low pressure will skirt by to our south Friday night and there could be some rain Friday night into early Saturday.  Lows Friday night will be in the upper 40s.

The low pressure system should move out to sea on Saturday, and after a slight risk of early morning rain, clouds should decrease.  The high on Saturday will be around 70.

Easter Sunday is looking pleasant, with mostly sunny skies and a high around 70.  For sunrise services, temperatures Sunday morning will start out in the middle to upper 40s.  Sunrise on Sunday is 6:36 a.m.

Easter Monday will be partly sunny with highs staying in the lower 70s.  A cold front could give us a few showers by Tuesday with mostly cloudy skies.  Highs on Tuesday will be around 70.
