Colder temperatures and rainy skies should move out of the area in time for Easter Sunday, according to the National Weather Service in Raleigh.
“Rain will basically stay over the area through much of the day Saturday,” says warning coordination meteorologist, Nick Petro. “It looks like that low pressure system that’s brining us the rain will begin to shift to the east on Sunday, and I think certainly for Easter Sunday there’s a pretty good chance we’ll get to see the sun come back perhaps later in the day.”
He says cloud and rain will keep the daytime high around 60 on Saturday, but the high Sunday afternoon with sunshine could reach into the mid- to upper-60s. And, he says we should be done with the overnight lows flirting with the freezing mark again.
“The good news is, low temperatures are going to be holding the mid-40s,” Petro says.
