North Carolina Weather Forecast for Raleigh, Durham and Fayetteville, North Carolina

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) — First Alert: Fog: Areas of dense, patchy fog are possible across central North Carolina through mid-morning today and Wednesday morning. Visibility may drop to 1/4 mile or less.

Good day! Any fog that forms will dissipate shortly after sunrise after sunrise and it will be a pleasant, mostly sunny day. High pressure will be the driver of our weather over the next few days along with increasing heat.

With temperatures above 80 degrees on Wednesday, it will feel more summery across central North Carolina.

Highs on Thursday will climb into the upper 80s and low 90s ahead of a cold front. Humidity will be a little higher, so it will feel more like the mid 90s.

Thursday night into Friday brings the next best chance for showers and storms as a cold front approaches from the west and pauses over the region. Showers and thunderstorms sandwiched between dry breaks are likely to continue through much of the Memorial Day weekend. The storms will drop temperatures a few degrees, but it will stay warm with highs in the mid/upper 80s.

Sunday looks to be the driest of Memorial Day weekend, although a shower or two is likely. Storm chances increase again Monday as a second system moves through the area. While it won’t be the best Memorial Day weekend, it won’t be a total disaster or scorching heat.

Have a nice day!
